10. Wild Horses

You know I can’t let you
Slide through my hands
Wild horses
Couldn’t drag me away

9. I Can’t Get No (Satisfaction)

That’s what I say, I can’t get no, I can’t get no
I can’t get no satisfaction, no satisfaction

8. Jumpin’ Jack Flash
Released in 1968

I was crowned with a spike right thru my head
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash

7. Honky Tonk Woman

It’s the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

You make a grown man cry
Spread out the oil, the gasoline
I walk smooth, ride in a mean, mean machine
Start it up


5. You Can’t Always Get What You Want
Released in 1969
On Album: Honky Tonk Woman (A-Side)
You can’t always get what you want nut hopefully you get what you need. A bit uplifting at the same time a slap in the face of reality.

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

4. Brown Sugar
Released in 1971

One of the greatest guitar songs of all-time too!

Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
Brown Sugar, just like a black girl should

3. Sympathy For The Devil
Released in 1973
On Album: Beggars Banquet
The song looks at life from Lucifer’s point of view.

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

2. Gimme Shelter
Released in 1969
On Album: Let It Bleed
A song that signified the times of the Vietnam War and violence.

A flood is threatening
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I’m gonna fade away

1. Paint It, Black
Released in 1966
On Album: Aftermath
Paint It, Black reached number one on the Billboard Top 100 in 1966. In the US, it was the first number-one single to feature the sitar instrument.

I look inside myself
And see my heart is black
I see my red door
I must have it painted black
