What is your favorite Rolling Stones song? If you'd care to, explain. →
[More:]I'd actually thought of posting this before I saw the Bowie thread

Mine is Tumbling Dice
. The last thing I wanna do is over-think a Rolling Stones song, so I'll just say it's one of the coolest songs ever - from the sloshed opening riff (if you could even call that a riff, but oh that guitar sound!), the perfectly slackened groove, the near-incomprehensible lyrics, the good-time backup vocals, to the kicker - that totally badass 45 second breakdown. Every time I hear it, it gives me that tingle that every rock song should strive for - the tingle that need not do but one thing - remind you that you are a sentient being. The thing about it that slays me is that, effortlessly and simultaneously, it is both a buildup and a breakdown. It is thee perfect example of a perfectly sloppy bar song.
