No. 4: ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Decca

The Rolling Stones wash off the grime and present themselves at their regal, melancholy best on the heartbreakingly gorgeous (and somehow not at all cliched) ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’

The song — one of many on this list from the band’s 1969 album ‘Let It Bleed’ — is one of the Stones’ most sophisticated, from that famous french horn intro solo to the London Bach Choir-boosted finale.

The verses — three main ones with the fourth varying in themes — tackle topics that were quite profound in the ’60s: love, politics and drugs. Weird, those seem to be pretty prominent today as well.
