Here it is folks.  If you are as big of a Stones fan as us, then you should have been able to deduct most of the entries, if not the order, of our top ten Rolling Stones tracks.  What amazes me is the enormity of the popularity of each of these songs.  With many bands, the most popular tracks often seem to be simply the most accessible, but with the Stones we get the best of both worlds.  This top ten list came so easily to us, with little rancor or argument.  The Rolling Stones truly went from England’s newest hit-makers to England’s greatest hit-makers.  Please check out #’s 50-31 here and #’s 30-11 here.  Also, check out our top 5 Stones albums here.

While Little by Listen is certainly small in name and stature, that doesn’t mean we can’t assemble a huge list.

So while Time is releasing a commemorative book for the Stones this week and there is even a 50th anniverary tour to come, nothing says legendary like a LxL top 50 list for your band. Yesterday, we brought you the best five Stones albums, today we bring you Fifty Licks.

One of their best album closers (beside maybe “Salt of the Earth”), “Moonlight Mile” closes Sticky Fingers  on a gracious note, a song also brilliantly covered by the Flaming Lips live.
