The Rolling Stones’ Top 100 Songs

In a birthday wish to Mick Jagger (born July 26, 1943), the DMDB presents an updated version of its list of the top 100 Rolling Stones’ songs originally posted as a Facebook note on May 31, 2011, in honor of two Rolling Stones’ birthdays: guitarist Ron Wood was born 6/1/1947 and drummer Charlie Watts was born 6/2/1941.

As always, DMDB lists are determined by creating an aggregate list from multiple other best-of lists and factoring in chart success, sales, airplay, and awards. In addition, 16 lists were figured into the mix which were exclusively best-of the Stones’ lists. I’ve also factored in appearances on 21 anthologies and live collections and 22 best-of lists focused on Stones’ songs.
