No. 10: ‘Ruby Tuesday’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
Released at the beginning of 1967, ‘Ruby Tuesday’ is a classic slice of the Rolling Stones‘ gentler side. A beautiful melody and lyric is spiced up with brilliant piano and recorder parts from Brian Jones. The track hit No. 1 in the US and the top three in the UK.
It was featured on not one, but two different US Stones albums, ‘Between The Buttons’ and the hodge-podge LP ‘Flowers.’ The song carries itself in a very baroque style, as opposed to the soon to arrive psychedelia, and it’s simplistic beauty has made it a consistent favorite since its release.
