This is likely my only shot. Assuming I get to see the Stones at Summerfest, it may well be the one opportunity left to see a legendary band I’ve never experienced live before, despite having been a fan since I was a kid.

Here, then, are the 10 songs (in no particular order) I’d love to hear the Stones play on June 23 at the Marcus Amphitheater, regardless of whether or not any of them is likely...

"Get Off My Cloud"

One of the best moments in rock and roll. As a drummer, I want to see Charlie do this one.

"Dead Flowers"

This one seems like a gimmie since the Stones are expected to play "Sticky Fingers" in its entirety.

"Memory Motel"

A sappy, long-time favorite from "Black and Blue," the first Stones record I can remember being released and the first one I devoured, along with the "Hot Rocks" comps.

"Out of Time"

Two reasons: it’s a brilliant song and, secondly, because it would surely start a discussion about the experience itself.

"King Bee"

Down and dirty Slim Harpo cover from the first record.

"Far Away Eyes"

Hearing the b-side to "Miss You" will make me feel 12 all over again and remind me of plugging coins into the jukebox in the Pizza Hut in Glens Falls, N.Y. to play it.

"Wild Horses"

Keith's love song to his infant son – and Mick's to Marianne Faithfull – is one of my all-time favorites. See "Dead Flowers."

"She’s a Rainbow"

This send-up of, or tribute to, psychedelia is one of the band’s most alluring compositions, whether or not John Lennon was right that it was an attempt to copy "All You Need Is Love."


Gotta hear Keef belt out at least one, and this is surely the best.

"Honky Tonk Woman"

Because I can’t imagine a more rock and roll experience than the Stones playing "Honky Tonk Woman" ... even when they’re in their 70s.
