The Rolling Stones Survivor - Beggars Banquet - Final Round

FIGHT.

At the last minute, a final vote swooped in to save "Factory Girl" from elimination, but I don't know if she'll be so lucky a second time.

This is the last thread for Beggars Banquet. The final five songs will move on to the Tier 1 semi-final. I expect I will need to mercy-kill this thread, but we'll see.

Please: VOTE FOR YOUR LEAST FAVORITE SONG

Haha, Factory Girl is the track that survived? That's a pleasant surprise.

That said, time for it to go.

At least I spared Factory Girl the indignity of being swept. It's a fine ditty, whereas No Expectations is a bit rote as far as Stones acoustic blues numbers go.

I like No Expectations, but its placing on the record is so daunting after the craziness of Sympathy. It just feels like too much of a downer. Let It Bleed has a similar problem with Love in Vain (a good track, but it's not a track 2).

The other two of Big Four have corrected this in the best way possible though.
