#50. Gimme Shelter By The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones are a classic, and no one makes music better than them. Did you know that “Gimme Shelter” was written within twenty minutes by Keith Richards? Yes, it only took twenty minutes to write, and yet this song was a hit everywhere.
“Gimme Shelter” was kept as an opening track for their album “Let it Bleed.” It has been a part of all the live gigs that the band has performed ever since then. When The Rolling Stones were on their 50th-anniversary tour, they sang “Gimme Shelter” with three other amazing singers: Florence Welch, Mary J. Blige, and Lady Gaga.
