I don't know about best song, but I'd say "Bitch" is up there for best riff. Or at least best horn riff when they come in.

"Harlem Shuffle" is really good. Or that song where they are really big in the video and walking around the city.
Did you guys here about Keith Richards smoking his dad's toenails after he died? That's sick!

The correct answer, of course, is "Monkey Man". Or perhaps "Wild Horses", depending on the situation. But y'all are entitled to your opinions.

Don't misunderstand me; "All Down The Line" is a great song, one of their top ten. But even "Rip This Joint" cleans the latrines with it; if you could distill just the badass part of "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'" (and divorce it from the meandering ending), you'd have a stronger song than "All Down The Line". I'd argue that "Jumpin' Jack Flash" as it's performed in the Gimme Shelter movie slays all contenders, depending on the day.

Ridiculous topic of course...but Dead Flowers always does it for me. Picking a song that doesn't even feature Brian Jones is naturally absurd to begin with.

I like Ventilator Blues and Let It Loose

Stoned is a funny song. They should play that one now

I greatly approve of the first sentence of this post. In fact, I'm gonna go play Monkey Man right now.

Best Stones song? Gimme Shelter. For the win....

"All Down the Line" is great; fuck, everything on Exile is great, but that's not even the best song on Exile. That honor goes to the tie between "Rocks Off" (also contender for greatest album opener. Ever) and "Happy."
