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
One of the best, all time.
Jagger's best
Lovin war protest songs of the 60s and 70s
Merry Clayton the backup singer in Gimme shelter and also performed with Ray Charles , Carole King and many others was seriously injured in a car crash on June 16. She has a long road of recovery ahead. Please, say a prayer for her. She was featured in the documentary film 20 Feet From Stardom and began her career in the early 60's.
Led Zeppelin the Beatles were a better studio band. The Stones are better live. Mick is the best frontman. No one can compete with Mick. I have been to several of their shows they are simply the best.
Top three Stones song, the depth and wanting of the lyrics flow perfectly into the sonic waves of the vocals buoyed by the rhythm of the drums but seared to a fine taste of Keith
Haha, I had no idea that this song was by The Rolling Stones. Great Song!
Timeless classic!
Best Stones song of all time. Encapsulates everything that made them remarkable.
Great song when it came out and is just as good today. One of their best.
Great f ING lyrics man.
Nice.
Classic War protest song sadly never gets old
I liek it..
Oooo this is giving me chills!
Unlike most, not a big Stones fan, but this is a great song
OMG that female vocalist is amazing. Btw that voice crack was boss. Gave it some serious soul. Haha
Used to cruise to this never realizing the significance
