  1. "Wild Horses" is easily one of the best songs of all time, but is not higher on this list because The Stones have perfected country in a few other songs. "Faith has been broken, tears must be cried. Let's do some living, after we die. Wild horses couldn't drag me away. Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day" 6.

    • "Gimme Shelter" (1968) What if I told you Chris Columbus beat Martin Scorsese to “Gimme Shelter” by three years? I mention this because Scorsese has used the leadoff track to “Let It Bleed” in three movies, but the ultra-commercial director who’d give us “Home Alone” first used the LP recording in “Adventures in Babysitting”.
    • "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (1965) According to Rolling Stone, this is the second greatest rock song of all time (behind Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”, which is so effing twee).
    • "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968) The greatest side one/track one of all time. The title provoked charges of Satanism, and Jagger’s first-person performance as Mephistopheles encouraged these surface readings, but it’s pure mischief.
    • "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Hearbreaker)" (1973) I understand “Goats Head Soup” isn’t “Exile on Main St.” , but any album that contains “Angie”, “Starf***er”, “Coming Down Again” and this all-timer deserves a little more love than it typically receives.

  3. May 24, 2019 · The slow, emotional ballad "Wild Horses" stands out as one of the best ballads recorded by the group. The song has a country rock feel, and Mick Jagger has reported they began writing it when hanging out with Gram Parsons. "Wild Horses" was recorded over three days at the legendary Muscle Shoals, Alabama studios.

    • The Allman Brothers – Ramblin’ Man. More than any southern band, the Allmans distilled the very essence of American music into their freewheeling sound.
    • Lynyrd Skynyrd – The Ballad Of Curtis Loew. The most beautifully observed of all Ronnie Van Zant’s story songs, this highlight of Second Helping spins the tale of a vagrant musician idolised by a 10-year-old boy, pulled together from strands of the frontman’s childhood in Jacksonville.
    • The Rolling Stones – Dead Flowers. On the Stones’ 1971 masterpiece Sticky Fingers were two great country-influenced songs: love-and-death ballad Wild Horses, and the swinging, stinging Dead Flowers, the bitter tale of a socialite and a junkie.
    • Neil Young/Waylon Jennings/Shooter Jennings – Are You Ready For The Country. Originally written by Neil Young, and featured on his classic 1972 album Harvest, this song was picked up by outlaw country singer Waylon Jennings for his 1976 album of the same name, his more overt country version giving him a big hit.

    • Brad Paisley, 'Welcome to the Future' (2009) Mainstream country's most prominent liberal ambitiously overloads this nearly six-minute single from 2009's American Saturday Night, explaining that he wanted "to serve up a little multigenerational truth with a strong sense of hope and possibility."
    • Harry Choates, 'Jole Blon' (1946) One of Bruce Springsteen's lesser-known influences is the late, hard-drinkin' Texas fiddle player Harry Choates. After playing for spare change as a teenager in the Thirties, Choates started making records by his early Twenties, and his aching 1946 reworking of the so-called "Cajun National Anthem" hit Number Four on the Billboard charts.
    • C.W. McCall, 'Convoy' (1975) This loving, jargon-filled novelty song took the insular world of trucker culture to the tops of both the country and pop charts in 1976.
    • Gretchen Wilson, 'Redneck Woman' (2004) Originally a collective of Nashville outcasts and outsiders known for their open-minded open mic night, the MuzikMafia went mainstream with the twin successes of Big & Rich's "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" and Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman."
