Sympathy For The Devil (Neptunes Remix) – 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.

Christians once commonly used the pentagram to represent the five wounds of Jesus. The pentagram has associations with Freemasonry and is also used as a symbol by other belief systems.
