My Stones list would be:
and then some individual songs from the rest. I always really liked the Stones version of Silver Train
Maybe I'll put that on my next compilation.
Sounds about my speed.
iTunes makes it too easy these days.
I finally decided to just create two Stones compilations - one with all of my favorite tracks from the 60s and another with faves from the 70s-early 80s.
