Favourite three-song sequences

Yesterday I was listening to IORR and realised that

Till The Next Goodbye
Time Waits for No One
Luxury

is one of my absolute favourite (and most underrated) three song sequence on any record.
What about you? Studio albums only...

nearly any possible three song sequence on Sticky Fingers is a hard competitor to beat

My favorite is already mentioned above from the 72-73 tour, that's full on energy. After that I like Not Fade Away, Tumbling Dice and YGGMR.

This isn't really a three song sequence. One needs to to shift the side of the album in the middle of them. "Luxury" belongs to a different context than the two others that close the first side. It starts something new.

CD killed the beauty of an album as a listening experience and as an art form. Yep.

Is "Tumbling Dice" followed by "Sweet Virginia". Or "Neighbours" by "Worried About You"? Hell not! Different sides, different stories. The first track of side two is something else than track number 6 or something.

always loved and love side 4 of "love you live" 1976,
it's only rock'n'roll - brown sugar - jumping flash, always wanted street fighting man to be the 4th song instead of sympathy for the devil

That's a valid point actually. Maybe it's because I first encountered IORR on CD that it doesn't make a huge difference to me compared to more recent releases I listen to on Vinyl only... Or maybe I'm just a quick shifter winking smiley

Haha.. I know what you meant... I just used this as an opportunity to bash the whole CD era, so please forgive me.. But the fact is that I have learned to think, say, IT'S ONLY R&R in the old vinyl terms, despite I have not listened vinyls for ages...winking smiley

Hard to pick whether to start at Midnight, or YGTS:

1. "Midnight Rambler"
2. "You Got the Silver"
3. "Monkey Man"
4. "You Can't Always Get What You Want"

HD is also a hard pick for side one. I could start at any one of the first 4 songs...just stellar.

Same for side 2 Tattoo You...you could start on any one of the first 3 songs and it'd be an amazing run.

Yep indeed.
TY is the prime example of album for which each of the two original sides has it's own individual and unique character.

Exile can also sometimes seem like 4 mini albums in one.

Still Life. Where it all kicked off for me....

Under My Thumb
Lets Spend The Night
Shattered

Amazing 3 song run with incredible energy and excitement !!!!

Right now:
Driving Me Too Hard
Tell Me Straight
Sweet Sounds Of Heaven

But historically:
Sway
Wild Horses
Can't You Hear Me Knocking

For us vinyl fans your suggestion is not a three-song sequence since one has to flip the record!

Live shows:

Not Fade Away
Tumbling Dice
You Got Me Rocking

Not Fade Away" effectively builds up tension for Tumbling Dice. Not Fade Away serving as an excellent show opener with starting with Charlie, followed by Mick, and then Keith & Ronnie. The seamless transition to the energetic "Tumbling Dice" makes for a captivating sequence, and the culmination with "You Got Me Rocking" adds another layer of greatness to the live experience

These days:
Street Fighting Man
Let's Spend the Night Together
Tumbling Dice

maybe it's time for something new, next tour. But I really liked this three-song sequence.
