No. 74: ‘Stray Cat Blues’– Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
If you want swagger, sway and attitude, here it is. One of many gems on the classic 'Beggar's Banquet' album, Stray Cat Blues' is pure raunch to the hilt, with one of the greatest grooves ever. It's pure blues dressed up Rolling Stones style with one of Mick Jagger's nastiest lyrical and vocal performances.
Many bands would try and replicate the feel and sound here over the years, but none would come close. This is pure blues sleaze the way it was meant to be. Just listen to Keith Richards' guitar merge with Charlie and Bill's groove...it's irresistible all the way. 'Beggar's Banquet' is an absolute classic from start to finish.
