I have a feeling that Scorsese will turn George Harrison into the Travis Bickle of the Beatles . . . I can just see De Niro looking into a mirror in a dramatic recreation, muttering over and over, "You within me or are you without me?"

I would have to agree with some of the others, the Stones are probably the 2nd greatest band ever.  

Gimmie Shelter
(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
The Last Time
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Let's Spend The Night Together
Honky Tonk Women
Paint It Black
Ruby Tuesday
Get Off of my Cloud
Wild Horse
Sympathy for the Devil
Under My Thumb
You Can't Always Get What You Want
19th Nervous Breakdown
It's Only Rock and Roll
Angie
Beast Of Burden
Brown Sugar
Start Me Up

Just to name a few!  They really have a wide range of hits and have been around for a long. Fans young and old love them. They really are a top-notch band.

Hi. I'm gonna make a mix tape for my dad who's turning 53 very soon. And I want to include a collection of Rolling Stones ballads. I got almost every RS album here in my home, but I'm definitely not a fan (love Beatles, hate Stones  :lol: ), so I'm asking to anybody who really likes them about their best ballads...

The ones I know are:
Angie
Out of Tears
Wild Horses
As Tears Go By
Lady Jane
Streets of Love (is this a ballad...?)

And that's it.
If anyone can help me I would be really grateful.  :D

Stones ballads? I'd go with "Lady Jane" from Aftermath and "Almost Hear You Sigh" from Steel Wheels myself. "Beast Of Burden" from Some Girls is pretty good too, and if you've got the nerve, use "Dead Flowers" from Sticky Fingers instead of "Wild Horses." "Sweet Black Angel" from Exile On Main Street and "Everybody Need Somebody to Love" from The Rolling Stones No 2 aren't really ballads but they're very good and would certainly fit. Unless your dad's got a taste for soppy football stadium ballads, just pretend "Angie" and "Fool To Cry" don't exist.  ;D

I love the Stones -- in my book they're in the holy trinity of rock bands, along with the Beatles and Led Zeppelin.  While I get the Beatles vs Elvis rivalry, and the fact that generally a fan falls into either one camp or the other but not both, I don't see that with the Beatles vs Stones.  I don't relate to the idea of being a fan of one of these bands but not the other.

A previous poster mentioned "Wild Horses" and how it was about Mick's reaction to Marianne Faithfull's OD; I'd heard it was written by Keith and it was to his kids and how he felt when he left them to tour -- I'll have to look into that.

The Stones did something that in my opinion not even the Beatles topped, in that they released five consecutive albums which could be considered all-time greats: Beggar's Banquet, Let it Bleed, Get Your Ya-Yas Out (one of the all-time great live albums), Sticky Fingers and my favorite, Exile On Main Street.  Exile is not that easily accessible, but on repeated listens it grows on you.  Now I think there's not one weak song on the album.

Mr. Mustard, great! The Beatles and Led Zeppelin - my favourites! However, i dont like everything from Stones. Nevertheless it `s no doubt they are beyond comparison and above a lot of bands.

I think I prefer the Marianne Faithfull version of As Tears Go By, to be honest.

So, i have seen the new movie with Rollings starring by Martin Scorsese! In English it is called Shine the Light (if i am not mistaken). In fact it is not so much a movie than a concert. I enjoyed it very much, watching these great rockers, and especially Mick Jagger, oh, how wonderful he is! And my favourite song: As Tears Go By! Is the film on in your parts?

I attended their show in November of '06 at the Oakland Coliseum, one week into the start of their tour, with Van Morrison opening.

Greatest show I've ever been to.

By the way, has anyone heard (or bought) their most recent album A Bigger Bang?  I listened to the whole thing shortly after it came out, and I really liked it -- the Stones rocked hard and it was probably their best album since Tattoo You, if not Steel Wheels.  But even as I was listening to it, I found it almost 'too clean' -- Jagger's vocals were very up front, not buried in the mix as in vintage Stones LPs.  I wasn't sure what to make of it -- I liked it, but it was a little foreign to me.  Any other opinions on that album, or memories of Stones shows?

You got Van Morrison!! Damn. I got Joss Stone. I feel gypped.  But the Stones' rocked. I cannot believe the energy of Mick Jagger. He didn't stop moving the entire two and half to three hours.
