Favorite obscure/catalog Stones songs?
I don't mean "Gimme Shelter or "Start Me Up", i.e. popular standards we've all heard a million times. I've recently discovered Between the Buttons, and I'm really in love with this album - "Yesterday's Papers", "My Obsession", and "Back Street Girl" have become instant favorites. The sneering, sarcastic "We Love You" is another great one - what a sinister piano intro! I always thought that would make a cool sample.So, what are your favorite Stones obscurities, those hidden nuggets that have eluded airplay and critical praise?

Even though it was a single in the 90's I don't remember "Saint of Me" getting a lot of airplay. Thought it was a decent song. Not a big enough Stones Fan to know many hidden gems.

"Moonlight Mile" is probably my favorite stones song - which hursts a little as it is one of the few to feature no imput keith - but an absolute beauty.

Does "Let it Bleed" count? Brilliant song.

Seconded. Exactly the song I thought of when I saw the thread title.

Besides that, I have a soft spot for a lot of the songs with Keith Richards singing lead (You Got the Silver, Coming Down Again, Little T&A, etc.).

Not really obscure, but not one of their greatest hits: "Play with Fire"

"Citadel" from THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST. Keith playing some killer chords and Charlie murdering his cymbals.

I somehow forget this in my first list:

Can't You Hear Me Knocking

During my formative years I skipped Goats Head Soup because I though I had all the 'good' songs from greatest hits compilations & singles. It was only recently that I discovered what are now two of my favorite all time Stones songs were on this album:

Star Star - textbook Stones swagger. Were it not for the filthy lyrics this probably could've gotten a lot of airplay.

Silver Train - I think I actually remember this being the flipside of the 'Angie' 45 but completely forgot what a great song it is.

I was going to mention that one. Not sure if it's ever been "officially" released, though.

A favorite of mine as well. Mick Taylor's leads are so fluid and gorgeous on that one.

Nope, CS is a download.

I've always liked:

Would have put Moonlight Mile but figured it wasn't obscure enough. Might be my favorite stones song.

The most surreal version of Moonlight Mile I've ever heard was by the 5th Dimension on their "Earthbound" LP. Worth checking out if You can find it.

Memory Motel
Hand of Fate
Waiting On a Friend (I know it was a top 20 single but it seems to be pretty much forgotten)
