This list has significant value, and is worth booksmacking.  The author is able to locate the majority of songs in the appropriate quintile, exhibiting a knowledge of the breadth and quality (declining) of Stones music.  And his commentary shows that, like many of us, the author sees his Stones as a historical and intellectual pursuit, as well  enjoyable.  Making each and every song on the list electronically selectable with a computer by means of a "URL" is a great touch as well.  I somehow didn't know they covered Marley/Tosh's Get Up, Stand Up, and now I've heard it, as well as a number of B-sides in the lower puff ranks that I didn't know existed or had forgotten about in a drug haze.

Unfortunately, he also goes with the now fashionable bashing of Indian Girl, which led to the biggest factual error on the list.  It's an in-crowd thing around here to bash IGgie (ER), all skeechie/sheckie.  Indian Girl is a quality country song, and we're lucky for it.  "Lesson number one . . . that you learn while you're young . . ." has all the aspects we love in Stones country.  This trend is like in the 70s when it was fashionable to bash Italians trying to stuff socks into Jordache jeans.  Look at where that led, now we have to account for those people as strict-scrutiny minorities with all their Chef Boyardee baked defamation suits and stuff.  Indian Girl bashing at 373 and the relative ranking of Dirty Work (album) as a whole are the only huge biffs that I can see on this comprehensive list of Rolling Stones songs.  This is an admirable achievement by this guy, and it looks like a ton of work went into this annotated list.  This guy/author is applaudable.

That list of blasphemy.
No Spare Parts is abysmal.

I reckon this guy's a Steely Dan fanatic who got the Stones list by mistake. A 6 week run thru the catalogue, a pint with  a Stones convention, and Bob's your Aunt.
Who'd even bother with Sing This All Together, at all?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

me, tauk, say:Beautifully put, gypsymofo60. I love your description of your reactions to GS..I feel the same way.

I agree "Gimme Shelter" is the #1 for me. However, also, really, the 2nd one listed in that vulture.com list YCAGWYW" is almost TIED for #1 for me. 

As far as YCAGWYW goes--I'm far from a musician-so I can't really talk in specific musicology terms...but starting with those first notes from the solo horn---so sad it is beautiful-.....comparable in poignancy only to the solo horn of the USA's military "Taps."

Hmm, funny, it only just now occurs to me that both songs, GS & "Taps", have a military connection (assuming GS refers to Vietnam War).

To continue my last post re. YCAGWYU:

Interesting info is written on the video screen for "TAPS":


Of course y'all know this but just thought I'd post specific horn opening which follows the choir's opening verse for YCAGWYW-

HORN starts at .54 for 22 haunting seconds.

Then paste the link

Then mark the whole link, from the http to the last carácter

Then click the "YouTube" button ...

ALso the instructions are on each button, just right click on them

I'm so sorry I still can't get it to work. I post videos all the time on eoms, probably close to maybe 500 videos by now. Once in a great while I'll run into a YT that will only post as a link but usually I can get it to work as a fully posted video. I tried 2 different Taps videos & also the Stones GS video. I've tried every possible code.
I'm making sure the YT media brackets are positioned exactly right. Sorry to take up your time, thanks for trying to help.

O.K. So I can at least post the videos as a link. I've tried these 2 Links- they both DO WORK Yay! (I just omit clicking on the YT icon in order to at least get the Links to work right).

This is the US Military Taps, with some interesting info re. the history of "Taps."



This is the Stones'YCAGWYW After the opening choir verse STARTING AT .55 seconds are the haunting,mournful 22 seconds of the horn.

I wasn't aware that you possess a "Pontificating Old Rubbish". Is that some type of an antique? A painting or perhaps a recycled material sculpture like a bust of an old speech-making politician? If I ever encounter it I'm sure I'd like it just fine.  Smiley


And re. my "entrance"-thanks for noticing my prolonged entry. But to be honest, it was so prolonged of an entrance that it was becoming embarrassing. Ya, sure, I like to make a good entrance once in a while but I don't like staring into the Great White Abyss of videos that won't post. It's such an empty feeling.  Sad

Which film was it from? Oh, I dunno; "Feeling good is all that matters!"
I liked your descriptions on pontificating old rubbish.
How come you've only posted these few times? You should definitely post more often.
Anyway, it's nice to see you post, so post away baby. Wink

I warned you all I'd be like a fly on shit forever with this list stuff. Here's a few from a dickhead in the UK in some nonsensical crap I borrowed from a library, that's the old building falling to pieces down, or up your street. The one with the creepy old vines wrapping themselves all around, where you may chance to spy some wizened old crone waffling about the degradation of the written word.

Anyway, list thingy, Number one, and I shit you not people is....BUS STOP by the Hollies? Shocked
Now; I have long thought The Hollies to be somewhat under-rated as far as the 60s are concerned but, Bus Stop? come on.

My "I'm in heaven. Feels so good" comment was my way of saying thanks to Voodoo Child for saying
"you rock tauk"
because I find that to be just about the highest compliment anyone could ever give me. ...(which, now that I think about it, might be the ONLY thing anyone can ever think of to compliment me on)  Smiley  Naturalust said that "tauk you rock" to me way back like 2 1/2 years ago when I very first started posting which was on iorr. It's a good sign that I'm in the right place.

So, good going so far here....although I always go through a initial period of anxiety when starting on a new Stones forum...Everything goes at first so well that I'm always anxiously waiting for my Freshman Hazing/Initiation to come upon me with no specific forewarning-Surprise can be the best tactic of course for the Hazers. So I'll brace myself.

So I guess that tells ya a little about how my mental state functions.

I'm actually the happiest when I'm being harassed (or as Freya Gin might say, being "punished" in some way) because it's only then that I'm not anxious about when it will start.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for encouraging me to post. Y'all know how to say the right thing to actually encourage someone to continue to write posts on your forum.   

It looks like I joined here back on April 8th but I had some technical problem preventing me from logging in until just a couple days ago.

Sometimes, in the face of yet more new technicalities to constantly learn in today's world, I rebel and react by shutting down all use of technical things. But then I get real hungry when I refuse to use my microwave.

However, I'm promising myself I have to exercise more restraint and not spend EVERY waking moment addicted to this...IT FEELS LIKE I'VE BEEN ENTRAPPED IN THIS STONES OBSESSION FOR 2 1/2 years now: 1200+ posts on iorr in about 6 months before my banning in spring 2015. Now I have 1200+ on eoms plus 48 in last year or so on shidoobee.

My point being, I'm wondering how can I possibly have anything new to say? Well, I guess I've had my ways of getting around that...at least I amuse myself if not anyone else by rarely saying anything of any real substance. (No, that's not a drug reference.)  Grin

mofo-Yes, you're right..Like we said in the 70's "If it feels good do it."  Cool

Also, "Have a nice day!" (Come to think of it I'll bet that there would be no smilies/emojis today if it weren't for that ubiquitous 70's yellow round circle with the smiling face on it that said that about have a nice day! And we didn't think that fad would last! Ha!  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley Smiley  Smiley

O.K. I'm up for all the rankings now..."the tauk abides."

Ta Ta for now.

And in re. to "Bus Stop", you're right mofo= nice little confection but certainly not #1 on any list. That's so dumb it is actually weird-o strange that anyone would think that. If that's where that guy starts his #1 ranked song then I'd hate to be at a record listening party at his house and get treated to what he would play as his 50th greatest rock song. Can you just imagine???

Oh but I should clarify something-I have nothing against weird-o's per se...as long as they have good taste in music.

me, tauk say: "What do you mean--the bars and locks on all my windows and doors are to keep ME IN?? I always thought it KEPT OUT all those with bad musical tastes!"

First Doors song on this list; 'Hello I Love You', no. 402. WTF? Huh I know Americans didn't really take to the Jam, but Gazza how do you feel about 'That's Entertainment at 259, and Tube Station at 483?
One Joy Division song, as I said earlier, 'Love Will tear us Apart'
at 89.
Immigrant Song at 568? Angry3 Sex Pistols songs, God Save The Queen at 116, Submission at 124, and Anarchy at 490.
Now here's a quandary, I absolutely adore 'Are Friends Electric' by The Tubeway Army, what an atmospheric diamond, no. 483? Shocked
No Stone Roses, She Sells Sanctuary at 777, Bittersweet Symphony at 224.
What an absolute tosser. Blind folded, I think he drew these out of a hat, and probably the next best rock song ever after Gimme Shelter, 'Welcome To The Jungle', no. 199. PATHETIC!
