    Best: Let it Loose or Midnight Rambler

    Worst: I don't know. There's probably some bad ones in the 80s.

    I'm surprised to see You Can't Always Get What You Want as considered the absolute worst ever.

    Best: Depends in the day and mood but "Can't Ya Hear Me Knockin'" or "Happy". Pretty much everything from "Beggars Banquet" to "Exile..." was solid. Hardly a bad track.

    Worst: Conversely even the "best" songs on anything after "Tattoo You" (being generous) are horrible. And compared to their peak output, embarissng.

    I would rather listen to nothing than anything after "Tattoo You" (I'm sure there's a random track that's good on some album, but I'm not going to sit through the dredge to find it.

    Gimme Shelter or Monkey Man for my tops, Emotional Rescue is low on my list.

    Best: that's tough, but "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" might be my favorite, forced to choose.

    Worst: There's also some competition here, but I'm going with "Fool To Cry." You seriously think that's a better song than "You Can't Always Get What You Want"? No accounting for taste, I guess.

    I am torn between Last Time and Gimme Shelter. But there are many great songs - it is tough. A couple more. It's All Over Now, Honky Tonk Women, and Brown Sugar. My band plays all of the above and we love playing them. Us older folks think this is real music.
    Satisfaction was and is a great song but I have played it so many times that it just does not muster the same enthusiasm as the others.

    Best - Stray Cat Blues or Jumpin' Jack Flash. Worst - possibly Fool To Cry but I haven't listened to a new Stones album in 25 years or so.

    Clearly none of you (so far) have listened to Bridges to Babylon. Some of the worst songs (ever) are on there.

    Best: Midnight Rambler live.
