Sympathy For The Devil (Original) – The Song
Sympathy for the Devil is a song by English rock band the Rolling Stones, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It is the opening track on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet.
It is considered one of the best songs of the popular music era, and it is ranked number 32 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. “Sympathy for the Devil” is credited to Jagger and Richards, though the song was largely a Jagger composition. The working title of the song was “The Devil Is My Name”, having earlier been called “Fallen Angels”. Jagger sings in first person narrative as the Devil, boasting his role in each of several historical atrocities. The singer then ironically demands the listener’s courtesy towards him, implicitly chastising the listener for their collective culpability in the listed killings and crimes. It was reissued as a single in 2003 as a remix. Side A featured the Neptunes edited remix, While Side B contained the original 1968 version.
The Devil – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a horned and bearded devil. A devil is the personification of evil as it is conceived in various cultures and religious traditions. It is seen as the objectification of a hostile and destructive force. It is difficult to specify a particular definition of any complexity that will cover all of the traditions, beyond that it is a manifestation of evil. It is meaningful to consider the devil through the lens of each of the cultures and religions that have the devil as part of their mythos.The history of this concept intertwines with theology, mythology, psychiatry, art and literature, maintaining a validity, and developing independently within each of the traditions. It occurs historically in many contexts and cultures, and is given many different names—Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub, Mephistopheles, Al-Shaytan—and attributes: It is portrayed as blue, black, or red; it is portrayed as having horns on its head, and without horns, and so on.
