So, I have to try and pick my favorite 20 out of the thousand songs they've recorded? That could take a while. I will say that Paint It Black is probably number one though.

Well, my goodness.  I was 10 years old when Satisfaction came out.  I'm 67 now.  They're still around.  

So, yes - this isn't easy to answer.

Some great 80s numbers on there. I couldn't seem to fit them in through the 60s classics, but it's all great!

As with the Who, I'm not a huge fan of their early stuff.  But the ones I do like, I love.

Since the 2002 Forty Licks 2CD compilation contains 20 songs per disc, I'm going to choose all 20 per each disc as my favourites, LOL.

Does anyone know if the ape on the cover of the GRRR! compilation is the same one in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey?

The Rolling Stones songs that Keith sings are also classics in some way.

'Happy' and 'Before They Make Me Run' are great.
