Stones at their pinnacle. The tension in this song is exquisite.
The movie Apocalypse Now had one of their songs in it
This is a great song, but why does Scorsese have to use it in all his films?
Really love this song, a lot! Blues-rock goodness, ahoy!! \m/
Cool
Awesome!
The background singer makes that song! Pandora needs to acknowledge Merry Clayton

@Aridz9494 the stones kill babies. Only adds to their cred as the most dangerous rock and roll band .
Stones are stoned during this time period...suc h a dynamic group to still be around after all these years enduring the drug culture...an d much more...This song is an example of their Stellar abilities... . .
This is the best song by the stones.
This song goes down as having THE best background vocals ever---I just love to hear that woman screaming her heart out in the back!! =h=

When Stephen King used this song as a quote in the bginning of (I believe it was Roadwork) one of his books, I discovered what is still my all time favourite Stones' song.

Martin Scorsese approves this song
It sounds like he's saying you got to shower
Grew up with them in the 60s and still rocking
This is from when Keith still looked human!
It's over the top
It brings back memories of driving a round town with windows and loud music

One of the best<3<3<3.
The woman who's voice cracks during the song ended up having a miscarriage after recording this song. The cause of the miscarriage was of the stress she put on her voice during the recording. Strange yet amazing.
Surprised the list doesn't have mystical qualities.
I'm 13 and I've been raised on this music. Really great music and I'm glad people of this generation still listen to it.
From when I was a wee lad..
I never really looked at the lyrics amazing
On the girl's solo, when she hits the high note, you can hear mick jagger yell
