The Devil Is In The Details
The needle reached the end of the track and there was silence for a short while but what was this strange sound that came from the speakers? It was a voice, but strangely distorted, gospel like! I’d never heard anything like this before and had played Dance With The Devil hundreds of times...
...“little one better heed my warning.”
It seems the Devil Is Fine and living in my stereo!
I think occasionally each of us has a little Devil Inside and we do push the limits of acceptability, not in a nefarious illegal way where your soul is gonna burn because you’re such a Devil Man, but a white lie here or there you know how it is The Devil Takes Care Of His Own.
Hades' Half Dozen:
Cozy Powell – Dance With the Devil
Zeal & Ardor – Devil Is Fine
Van Halen – Runnin’ With the Devil
INXS – Devil Inside
Blues Pills – Devil Man
Band of Skulls – The Devil Takes Care of His Own
You know it’s hard to dance with the Devil on your back, so Shake It Out and shake him off oh whoa!
My Mother and the Devil can be relied upon to be there for me but will The Devil always tell you the truth, or simply the truth that you want to hear.
A union between a woman and the devil could give rise to the Devil’s Daughter no Cupid’s arrow but a pitch fork, right clean, through my heart. If you want to marry her don’t let vanity get in the way though you’d better smarten up and copy the Devil’s Haircut.
If you’ve got a vice, or many: moonshine, gambling, cheating at poker and times are tough, you maybe so far down you’re Where The Devil Don’t Stay.
The Devil enjoys a hand of poker but the stakes are much higher than in the woods of Alabama where daddy played but He’s cheating the same as from beneath his cloak He slipped another ace winning many souls that ride that Spanish Train still.
