CSPC: The Rolling Stones Popularity Analysis
Streaming Part 5 – Wild Hits
Hits, hits and more hits. During the 60s, the Rolling Stones had as many as 8 #1 singles in the UK and 5 in the US plus countless Top 10s. Getting into the 70s, very few things changed as smashes continued to come in.
Their profile was even increasing once more. Sticky Fingers has been their first album to top charts in both the US and the UK. Then, Exile on Main St. reproduced the feat with ease.
While both albums appear to be insanely consistent, they do not match Let It Bleed total. Sticky Fingers does contain two mega-hits, Brown Sugar and Wild Horses, both over 40 million streams, unlike Exile on Main St. which is topped by Tumbling Dice at a relatively low – to the band standards – 13 million.
