No. 21: ‘Tumbling Dice’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
As the first single from ‘Exile on Main Street,’ ‘Tumbling Dice’ introduced us to one of the best Rolling Stones albums of all time.
This bluesy boogie-woogie tune was first recorded during sessions for the band’s previous album, ‘Sticky Fingers,’ under the title of ‘Good Time Woman.’ However, the initial recording lacked the opening riff that makes us all go wild for the Stones.
Once that final piece was locked into place, it’s hard not to see ‘Tumbling Dice’ as anything but a classic piece of rock and roll music. It’s one of the true standout songs on ‘Exile,’ and remains a live favorite to this day.
