Top Ten Songs from Between the Buttons by The Rolling Stones (British Version)

Between the Buttons is one of their more underrated albums. Released in the middle of the 1960s, it features unusual instruments and more sophisticated, pop oriented arrangements. Feel free to add anything to this list if you missed it.

The Top Ten

1 Back Street Girl

A slow, acoustic number. Mick Jagger says that this is the one song on the album that he enjoys. - Gg2000

2 Miss Amanda Jones

This one is an uptempo, Chuck Berry type rocker. It's got some really cool guitar tone. - Gg2000

3 Complicated

I really enjoy the pulse of this one; it never loses speed the whole way through. - Gg2000

4 Please Go Home

This song is sorta like fuzzed out Bo Diddley, with the main guitar having a lot of tremolo. There are also oscillators in the background, for effect. - Gg2000

5 Who's Been Sleeping Here?

The verses are mainly accompanied by acoustic guitar, with the whole band coming in during each chorus. - Gg2000

6 My Obsession

Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys says that he saw them record it in Los Angeles. Apparently, it's still one of his favorite Stones songs. - Gg2000

7 Yesterday's Papers

The opening track. Some people claim it was written about Jagger's ex girlfriend Chrissie Shrimpton. - Gg2000

8 All Sold Out

This song is about getting stood up. You get the feeling that Mick isn't happy about the whole thing. - Gg2000

9 Cool, Calm & Collected

This song is almost like a music hall number. At the end, the band plays faster and faster until it descends into chaotic noise. - Gg2000

10 Connection

The song is unique in that Mick and Keith come up with a bunch of rhymes for the word "connection". They said it was about their time spent in airports, but a lot of people think it's about their fear of getting busted for drug possession (they did get busted a few months later). - Gg2000
