"This could be the Last Time". On their "Bridges to Babylon" tour they had this amazing articulating bridge that after expansion stretched from the main stage to a little stage (end zone to end zone) set up with small amps like a club gig. They walked across, plugged in, and lit into "The Last Time" and "Little Queenie" and it was like a time machine to the mid sixties for me.
I like this one because it's an autobiographical song that goes a long way in explaining Mick Jagger's perception of the world.
Like the old man who shouts at clouds, Mick howls at the morning driving rain, and frowns at the crumbs of a crust of bread under his feet after having been inexplicably left for dead.
In cleverly disguising Marianne Faithful as the "toothless bearded hag," who wields her leather strap, Mick diverts attention from the face in the mirror.
He is at once attracted and repulsed by what he sees there. He craves the savage praise of being called the ugliest of the Stones, but is instead only recognized for having lips meaty enough to engulf an entire mini-Cooper.
He accepts his crown of a "spike right through my head," as homage to the realization that his alter ego, "Jack", is in fact, "a gas, gas, gas."
If you put a capo on the 5th fret of of your acoustic guitar, and play a song in the key of C, fretting it as if you are in G, you will eventually find yourself playing the aforementioned "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
Love the opening riff of Can't You Hear Me Knockin' but, overall, I think Jumpin' Jack Flash does it best for me. I really like the Ya-Ya's version and Johnny Winter also has a killer live version on Johnny Winter And.
Gimme Shelter. But I love all of Get Yer Ya-ya's Out, live tracks from my favourite (Mick Taylor) Stones era. My favourite from that album is probably Midnight Rambler. The album brings back great memories: the year I left school it became a Friday ritual to play it after a night out, thanks to a friend whose parents kindly went away most weekends.

I already mentioned Gimme Shelter in that other thread -- but it depends on the female vocalist. I've seen a couple vids where Mick brings in a white chick to do it -- doesn't work for me.
"Paint it Black" is another that I've seen them do many times live -- I love it. They usually bring the lights down for a few seconds and Keith's solo intro comes out of nowhere. Then Charlie comes in to light the place up again. I'm glad I got to seen them as many times as I did.
