Not only are The Rolling Stones one of the oldest rock n’ roll bands of all-time, but they are also one of the greatest. The band has been around for the staggering 55 years (55 that’s right!) with its founding members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts. That’s why, we've decided to come up with the perfect selection of the top 10 Rolling Stones’ hits for you to enjoy. Ready? Let’s go!

#10 Mixed Emotions (1989)

The song "Mixed Emotions" was on the Rolling Stones' comeback album “Steel Wheels”, which was released in 1989, after Jagger and Richards had spent a few years working on their solo careers. Reaching No. 5 on the USA charts and also No.1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, the song was the Stones’ last U.S. top ten single until today.

#9 Start Me Up (1981)

“Start Me Up” is a song that was featured on the 1981 album “Tattoo You”. Being released as the album’s lead single, the song reached No. 1 on Australian Kent Music Report, and spent three weeks being No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song scored No. 7 on the UK Singles chart, where it remained an important single, as the Rolling Stones have not been back to the UK top 10 since. Furthermore, Microsoft paid about $3 million to feature the song in their Windows 95 marketing campaign.

#8 Under my Thumb (1966)

One of the band’s most popular songs from the 60s, “Under my Thumb” first appeared in 1966, in the album “Aftermath”. Two years later, it was released as a single in Japan. When it comes to Jagger's lyrics, the song celebrates the success of finally having control over a previously dominating woman.

#7 Angie (1973)

Just like most of Rolling Stones’ songs, “Angie” is also credited to both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Released as a single in August 1973, “Angie” reached the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and scored No. 5 on the UK singles chart. Also, the song was a No. 1 hit in both Canada and Australia for five weeks each and topped the charts in many other countries. There were some speculations that the lyrics were inspired by David Bowie's first wife Angela or by Keith Richards’ new-born daughter, alongside other theories.

#6 Ruby Tuesday (1967)

“Ruby Tuesday” was released in January 1967 and appeared on the “Between the Buttons” album. It had a major success in both the UK and the US. Namely, the song topped the American Billboard Hot 100 chart, while reaching number 3 in the UK's Record Retailer chart. According to the Rolling Stone interview with Richards, he wrote the song in a hotel room in L.A. about a groupie he knew.

#5 Paint It Black (1966)

Yet another perfect pop-song “Paint It Black” (originally launched as "Paint It, Black") was released in May 1966, as the opening track to the US version of the album “Aftermath”. The song is written from the perspective of a miserable man who wants to paint everything black to match his depressing mood. Due to the popularity of this song, it was subject of multiple cover versions, compilation albums and movie appearances.

#4 Tumbling Dice (1972)

In case you want to make a compilation of your favourite songs while playing at online casino, there’s one song that definitely needs to be on your playlist - “Tumbling Dice". As Mick Jagger once explained, “the song was written to fit Keith's riff - it's about gambling and love, an old blues track.” Who would’ve thought that a song about Craps would make it to the No. 7 in the U.S charts and No. 5 in the U.K charts? Not to mention the song was listed as one of the Best 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in the Rolling Stones Magazine.

#3 Get Off of My Cloud (1965)

From the album “December's Children (And Everybody’s)”, “Get Off of My Cloud” was created by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Recorded in September 1965, the song was penned in response to the band's instant popularity to follow the successful “(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction”. The song topped the charts in the UK and the USA, and reached No. 2 in Australia and Ireland.

#2 Time Is on My Side (1964)

Written by Jerry Ragovoy (Norman Meade), the song “Time Is on My Side” was first recorded by jazz trombonist Kai Winding and his Orchestra in 1963. It was the Rolling Stones' first top 10 hit in the United States, being listed as No. 6 and spending 13 weeks on the charts.

#1 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (1965)

“(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction” is probably the best-known Stones’ song. Written by Jagger and Richards, the song’s lyrics refer to sexual frustration and commercialism. After it was released in July 1965, “Satisfaction” became a huge hit – No. 1 in the US and the UK. At first, the song was played only on pirate radio stations, as its lyrics were considered to be too sexually expressive. Later, it became the Stones' fourth No. 1 in the United Kingdom.

These 10 hits were among our favourite ones. If you want to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of old-school rock and roll, you gotta put on your leather jacket, decorate your finger with a skull rocker ring, and let these songs get you in the right mood!
