Happy Birthday to Mick Jagger, who turned 69 on July 26.
There's not many groups that prompt lists of their top 100 songs. Among my personal favorites:
“Gimme Shelter“ (1969)
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want“ (1969)
“Sympathy for the Devil“ (1968)
“Street Fighting Man“ (1968)
"Dead Flowers" (1971)
