: : Doesn't seem like it gets the credit it deserves. I'd rate it as there best song before they cut SFTD. What do you think?
: I think PIB was one of the very first Stones songs I remember thinking, "Damn, the Beatles could NEVER have beaten this!" I still get chills listening to it, especially that intro. Dig the intro on headphones at a very LOUD volume... oh, baby!
Yeah, I'm with you on that. That song is one of the greatest and most important rock songs ever.
The Stones did quite a few tracks in that middle period that had something to them that the Beatles couldn't match: PIB, Ruby Tuesday, Dandelion, 2000 LYFM, JJF, SFM. Just a certain "feel" that the Beatles didn't have.
