Day 10: A set featuring a song lyric → Sympathy For The Devil - The Rolling Stones
Just as every cop is a criminal, and all the sinners saints. As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer, cause I’m in need of some restraint. So if you meet me, have some courtesy. Have some sympathy, and some taste. Use all your well-learned politesse, or I’ll lay your soul to waste. Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name.
How did I forget to list this song!!!!? It is one of the reasons I started Fandom Lyrics! And it is so perfect, it is going in both the Sherlock AND Hannibal playlists (albeit for different interpretations and reasons).
“We fight every night for something.
When the sun sets we’re both the same:
Half in the shadows,
Half burned in flames.
We can’t look back for nothing.
Take what you need, say your goodbyes.
I gave you everything,
And it’s a beautiful crime.”
Okay, this song is a pretty obvious one lyrically, but the original version by The Police did not capture Hannibal at all. Which is why I highly suggest THIS VERSION! Listen to it! The minor key change is pure, dark, perfection.
“Every breath you take,
Every move you make,
Every bond you break,
Every step you take,
I’ll be watching you.”
