I read jagger played the guitar on moonlight mile. No Keith. Anyone else?

How come jagger is not known for his guitar playing skills?
Leslie West has complimented Jagger's guitar playing more than once. He also invited Jagger to play on "The Great Fatsby".

"Hide your love"
"Miss Amanda Jones"
"Turd on the run"

Overlooked by many.. but great tunes
Wow - I thought I was the only person who loved "Hide Your Love" - one of my top 5 blues songs, guitar-wise.

Also "Monkey Man" - listed so many times, I'm not sure we can call it overlooked. Best rhythm riff in the history of music in the known universe.

Also "Mixed Emotions" - best of the modern era Stones, sez I.

Great thread.
Another vote for Moonlight Mile, though Sway, Worried About You, Sister Morphine, Dead Flowers all get a nod as well. Yeah, OK, so I love Sticky Fingers, anyone wanna make a deal out of it ??
Anyone else notice that the first side of all the Stones albums had the up tempo radio friendly stuff,m but on the flip-side there is all this other slower magical stuff.
I wanna do a Stone tribute too.

Dead Flowers, and Sweet Virginia for me

I can sit and listen to the Stones for hours, I don't even want to think about how long I've listened to Exile and Sticky Fingers, great stuff on both of those.

2000 Light Years From Home, She's a Rainbow, or Sing this Song All Together

I love the Satanic Majesties album. NEVER gets any play time. Too bad as young RS fans never get to hear some great songs.

I suppose you could make an argument that, notwithstanding that some of the songs mentioned in this thread appeared on greatest hits compilations, or that many of those Mick Taylor-era chestnuts gets played on the radio fairly regularly, they are still "underrated". But I think the criminal negligence when it comes to the Stones involves their later work. So my nominee is "Tie You Up (The Pain of Love)" from Undercover. Easily one of the most rock-ass songs in the entire Stones oevre. I'm also partial to "Had It With You" from Dirty Work.

I agree with on people overlooking the more recent stuff. On that note, check out "Look What the Cat Dragged In" off of A Bigger Bang. Great groove, rocks hard.

I think that lyrics are pretty funny, I always imagine it's Jagger watching his kids come home from a night of partying.
