19 of the Rolling Stones Greatest Hits

"Honky Tonk Women" (1969)

"Honky Tonk Women," also from Through the Past Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2), is widely thought to be an homage to a prostitute. Aside from being one of the Stones' most popular songs, it also holds the distinction of being released in England the day after Stones founding member Brian Jones was found dead in his swimming pool.
