: : But how could any song POSSIBLY be better than "Sympathy?" I mean, even come close??
: Yes, that's a puzzler..the vote of "Rocks Off" as best leadoff was a shocker even to me, a dyed-in-the-wool Exile freak. I mean, "Rocks Off" is okay, but geez..better than Sympathy? Better than Gimme Shelter? Better than Brown Sugar? I dooon't thiiiiink soooooooo....
Sympathy is my all time favorite song, period. But it is not my all time favorite kick-off song, which the poll was about. Even though I am not a big fan of Exile, I would agree that Rocks Off is one of the best kick off songs for the Stones. Sympathy is an ok, maybe better than average kick-off song, but it also would have fitted in almost anywhere on the album, its just that kind of song. But take a song like Start Me Up, a better kick off song, but it would not fit in anywhere else on TY.
