The Devil's Music

Devil Song by Beth Orton

Here's one that'll have the hairs on your neck standing up. We all know Beth Orton makes some pretty wonderful music, but her third album, 1999's 'Central Reservation', was always something pretty special. One of its highlights is Devil Song, a track that for me is more about facing up to personal demons than to old Lucifer himself. Perhaps by way of some kind of atonement, Beth's next album 'Daybreaker' would include God Song.
