The Devil's Music

#4: Sympathy For The Devil by Motörhead

Lemmy's been dead for a month and it already feels like forever. Fortunately he will be eternal in his music. The very last thing we got from him - the closing track on Motörhead's final album - was this awesome version of probably the finest song ever written about old Lucifer, told from the protagonist's own viewpoint. To be honest, if this really were the Devil singing, I'm sure his/her voice would sound more like Lemmy's than Jagger's. D'you reckon Lemmy was buttering up our friend down there in preparation? I mean, this is a storming, full-blooded version that (s)he would be proud of. Talk about going out on  high.

  1. It's a version direct from hell and I agree if the devil would it sounds like Lemmy.
