Satisfaction stands in a class of it's own as far as I'm concerned. There's a "Book Of Rock Lists" I have, where some famous muso (forget who it was) listed his Top 50 Stones songs of all time in order. He put a reason for choosing them beside each one, and next to Satisfaction -which was his #1 - he put just one word:

"Because...". That said it all. :P

Do you like Glenn Shorrock's cover of 'Dream Lover' Oldfif?? He had a big hit down here with it didn't he?

Yes, very much so Katie. I didn't mention it because I didn't think anyone outside Australia would know it. I have it on a "Hot Hits 1979" or similar titled tape (remember them ?) somewhere.

He's great. I love his early songs with The Twilights and Axiom.
