Equal Time: What's your favorite Stones song?

I'm generally not a big Stones fan, but no denying Mick & Keith are rock royalty, and they certainly win the longevity prize - not big on ER I guess.

There are 18 Stones tunes in my iTunes library, 5-6 Stones best contenders, Honky Tonk Women if I had to choose just one...

Honky Tonk Women has one of the great openings in R&R, but I can't hear Dead Flowers without singing along.

"Miss You". But that's just because I like low end (that includes the words).

Rolling Stones are special group for me.

#1 when i was 15, my mom took me on a 40 day tour of parts of Europe. Rolling Stones tapes played on the tour bus most of the way. #2 My best friend, died three years ago from ovarian cancer, was the hugest RS fan of all times, esp. of Mick.

Ruby Tuesday
Wild Horses is second

I have such difficulty sticking with one answer. Which reminds me of You Can't Always Get What You Want

As a Baby Boomer aged late 50s, and as I have often mentioned in other posts here, I am a #1 Beatles Fan.

Although they sometimes copied the Fab Four's ground-breaking ripples, the Rolling Stones created some great original material of their own. For me, 1966-1973 was their best era.

My favorite Rolling Stones song? If a gun was put to my head with a 3-2-1 countdown, I'd yell out ... Damn! Too late!

"Brown Sugar". Followed closely by "Honky Tonk Women" and "She's A Rainbow"

As mentioned previously, there are too many great songs to pick just one. But as for albums, "Exile On Main Street" is right up there.

So many to chose from but Gimme Shelter, Paint it Black and It's Only Rock and Roll would probably be my top three.

Paint It Black and Wild Horses. But really too many to choose from.

No favorites in either category, Beatles or Stones. No major dislikes either. I must have been asleep...

I'm not a huge fan of either the Beatles or the Stones, but they both have a large library and many very good/great tunes.

For me, the Stones had a rougher rock edge that I liked, and those would be among my favs:

Satisfaction (one of the greatest 'riffs' in R&R: der-der, der-der-der)
Get Off My Cloud
Jumpin' Jack Flash (It's a Gas!)
Under My Thumb
Sympathy for the Devil

edit - forgot Paint it Black - I like the steady driving drums with the kinda twisty melody weaving in/out of that. Fairly innovative at the time I think.

Yes,
Blue turns to Grey and
She Smiled Sweetly
The rest suffer from overplayed syndrome
