Song of the Day

Sweet Virginia
The Rolling Stones
Exile On Main St. (1972)

Because the blues is awesome, that's why.  A lot of the Rolling Stones' acoustic blues songs have a swinging country feel to them, like this.  It makes the songs really fun and easy to play on acoustic guitar.  This is from their biggest selling (and best) album, Exile On Main St.  The Rolling Stones were lucky that their biggest album came out after the Beatles had already broken up, because otherwise it probably would have been overshadowed like all their previous albums.  Fun Fact: in the movie The Departed, the CD of phone recordings that gets sent to Matt Damon's house near the end of the film was in an Exile On Main St. case.
