Five Best...Songs from Sticky Fingers


#5. "Sister Morphine"

Well it just goes to show
Things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last


#4. "I Got the Blues"

As I sit by the fire
Of your warm desire
I've got the blues for you, yeah


#3. "Bitch"

I'm feeling drunk, juiced up and sloppy
Ain't touched a drink all night
I'm feeling hungry, can't see the reason
Just ate a horse meat pie


#2. "Dead Flowers"

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave


#1. "Wild Horses"

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Really, you leave off not one, but three of the best songs from a ten song album?

Leaving off Brown Sugar may be a statement against for the quality of the album vs it's singles, or maybe a knock at the overplayed feel of it (as it's been the most played song off the album for 35 years, and even the best songs are tiresome after spin 15,000). I don't agree but it's interesting.

But to leave off Can't you hear me knocking in addition is a considerable gaffe. A seven minute classic with one of the best bass lines The Stones ever did and an organ piece that puts anything The Doors did to shame.

And you don't even mention the wonderful closer, Moonlight Mile!?! If not for You Can't Always Get What You Want being the finale on Let it Bleed, this would be the best album closer the Stones did. A ballad with a lyricism that expresses ache instead of the normal agony of being away from a loved one, it's almost blasphemy to not include this track.

Given you have chosen half of a 10 song album for your list, I could actually claim you chose 100% of the lower 50% of the quality songs, and I would if I didn't like dead flowers so much.

Anyway, glad I came upon this.
