Some Girls (album)

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by the Rolling Stones, released in 1978 on Rolling Stones Records. Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of their prior album, Some Girls reached number one on the Billboard 200 album chart, and became the band's top selling album in the United States, certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000. It was a major critical success, becoming the only Rolling Stones album to be nominated for a Grammy in the Album of the Year category. Many reviewers called it a classic return to form and their best album since 1972's Exile on Main St.
Several hit singles emerged from the album which would become rock radio staples for decades, including "Beast of Burden" (US number 8, Australia number 12, top ten in several European markets), "Shattered" (US number 31), "Respectable" (UK number 23), highlighted by "Miss You", which reached number one in the US and Canada, number three in the UK, and was a top ten hit in dozens of worldwide markets.
