I want to listen to the Rolling Stones 2.0. Can you point me in the right direction? To provide more specificity, I'm particularly drawn to the period bookended by Beggar's Banquet on one end and Some Girls on the other. Which artists from the 80s, 90s, and on--or which albums by certain artists--might have a similar feel? [more inside]

Help me to appreciate the Rolling Stones. I love classic rock and I practically worship Led Zeppelin and the Beatles, but I've never really delved into the Stones.

Where should I begin (album-wise) to appreciate the Rolling Stones?

I'm seeking examples of a full orchestra backing up singers (not necessarily the original ones) doing famous non-classical (pop, rock, etc.) songs traditionally known without that orchestration. For example, "Hurricane 2000
," or Symphonic Music of the Rolling Stones
— although ideally responses would be publicly accessible links (i.e. Google Video, YouTube, etc.), it's not altogether necessary.
