The song became a regular part of the band's live sets in the ensuing decades.
4. Fool to Cry

Answer: Black and Blue

Released in 1976, "Black and Blue" topped the US album chart and made number two in the UK. This was the first Stones album to feature Ronnie Wood on guitar in place of Mick Taylor. Wayne Perkins played guitar on "Fool to Cry", which was released as a UK single, reaching number six.

"Harlem Shuffle" was a cover version of a song by Bob & Earl, and reached number 13 in the UK and number five in the USA.
6. Love is Strong

Answer: Voodoo Lounge

Released in 1994, "Voodoo Lounge" was the Stones' first UK number one album for 14 years. It was their first album not to feature Bill Wyman on bass. Darryl Jones was his replacement on this album. "Love is Strong" was the opening track on the album, and reached number 14 on the UK singles chart.

Jones does appear on two tracks ("Midnight Rambler" and "You Got the Silver") which had been recorded at earlier sessions.

The track has been a live staple of the band's well into the 21st century.
