19 of the Rolling Stones Greatest Hits

"Undercover of the Night" (1983)

Another top ten song for the Stones, "Undercover of the Night" appeared on the album Undercover. It is one of only a few Stones songs with a political bent, tackling corruption in Central and South America, with lyrics such as: "Hear the screams of Center 42/Loud enough to bust your brains out/The opposition's tongue is cut in two/Keep off the street 'cause you're in danger."
