"Gimme Shelter"

The most passionate and yet gloomy catalogue song The Rolling Stones in particular and the '60s in general. "Gimme Shelter" - is a true madness, a harsh tirade... The composition was dedicated to the terrible events in Vietnam and addressed to the entire American society. Considering its dark lyrical stuffing, it becomes clear why it sounds so bellicose and heartbreaking....

Keith Richards more beautiful than ever! А Mick Jagger teamed up with Merry Clayton - a brilliant gospel singer whose voice brought out her missing colours. A great classic with deep meaning and historical value.

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."

This composition owes its name to Chuck Berry.or rather his song. "Thirty Days."which sings, "I won't have the pleasure of a judge." Although it was Richards, who was on holiday in Florida and experimenting, that gave birth to the tune. He left his tape recorder on and the iconic sounds were recorded.

This is the first song that defined the Stones and how cool rock stars they were in the 60s. Anyway, that's what he said about this masterpiece. Johnny Marr.

"Sympathy For The Devil"

One of the most famous and beloved compositions, which has become a classic for centuries! There is hardly a music lover who has never heard this masterpiece....

Brian FerryFerry, co-founder and leader of Roxy Music, was always fascinated by the track and even made his own version. In an interview, Ferry said:

"It's my favourite song of theirs. It's a great classic, it's unique lyrically. It's extremely majestic and captivating. The percussion is amazing, that's the first thing I particularly remember..."

"You Can't Always Get What You Want."

The song started out as a sketch that Jagger composed for acoustic. But in the end. "joke song" was a landmark musical statement - the final moment on Let It Bleed, the band's record that ended the '60s.

In his interview, Jagger said that the lyric resonated with listeners because of the lyrics, in which everyone could see their own reflection. Specifically, it sings:

"You can't always get what you want.
But if you try it sometime, maybe,
You'll realise you're getting what you need..."

"Paint It, Black."

Bill Wyman

A very innovative track in which Bill Wyman added a special twist by playing the Hammond B3 organ. As Richards put it:

"Bill's game has become iconic here!"

That's a bit depressing songbut it certainly seems ahead of its time. However, Jagger has always downplayed talk of her originality, noting:

"It's not an original thought, it was before our time..."

"Jumpin' Jack Flash."

The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger.

The riff alone makes this song one of the most legendary in the band's catalogue! Brian Jones described it as "a return to the essence of the Stones". And by all accounts - the audience loved this track!

And lastly, there's more 3 great trackswithout which it is impossible to imagine both the "Rolling Stones" and the period of the 60s! Enjoy listening to them.
