7. "2000 Light Years From Home"

The Rolling Stones would be the first to admit that their 1967 psychedelic LP, Their Satanic Majesties Request, didn't quite go as well as planned. They simply weren't playing to their strengths, and the experiment felt a little forced. That said, the album does have some amazing gems, like the penultimate song "2000 Light Years From Home." Brian Jones plays mellotron, and Jagger supposedly wrote the lyrics in prison following his drug bust. "It's so very lonely," he sings. "You're 2,000 light years from home." Most songs from this album haven't been touched in over 40 years, but the Stones played this one on the 1989/1990 tour and brought it back at Glastonbury in 2013.
