Mother's Little Helper
You Can't Always Get What You Want
Wild Horses
Before They Make Me Run
Paint It Black
Sympathy For The Devil
Doo Doo Doo Heartbreaker
Happy
She's A Rainbow

I dunno, there are so many others, Get Off My Cloud or Under My Thumb kinda tie for being on the list but I can't take any others off either.

1) Street Fighting Man
2) Paint It Black
3) Tumbling Dice (and basically ALL of "Exile on Main St.", including--)
4) Happy
5) 19th Nervous Breakdown
6) Gimme Shelter
7) Dead Flowers
8) Get Off Of My Cloud
9) Let's Spend the Night Together
10) Under My Thumb
11) Ruby Tuesday
12) Not Fade Away

Plus a dozen others. It's funny, however, that most of our "essential" lists don't include the most popular, most played tracks. For example, I could go the rest of my life without hearing "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", "Jumpin' Jack Flash" or "Honkey Tonk Women". Those are great songs, no question, but they've suffered from mass over exposure, while a lot of great material has been overlooked.

18 technically, but everything from Exile On Main St.
