64. Sticky Fingers, The Rolling Stones, Rolling Stones Records, 1971

Drummer Charlie Watts remembered the origin of Sticky Fingers as the songs Mick Jagger wrote while filming the movie Ned Kelly in Australia. “Mick started playing the guitar a lot,”Watts said. “He plays very strange rhythm guitar . . . very much how Brazilian guitarists play, on the upbeat. It is very much like the guitar on a James Brown track ”“ for a drummer, it’s great to play with.” New guitarist Mick Taylor stretched out the Stones’ sound in “Sway,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “Moonlight Mile.” But “Brown Sugar” is a classic Stones stomp, and two of the best cuts are country songs: one forlorn (“Wild Horses”) and one funny (“Dead Flowers”).
