Hello,

I was pleasantly surprised by this remix. It's a cool remix, they didn't just go with the beats, but made something more of it. I love the part at the end with the acoustic guitar, it has such an impact!
As for the video, it faithfully visualises what the song is about.

Speaking of the devil...
I saw the Stones perform last night! Yep, they played here (or rather in Amsterdam). It was a good show. As they're going on 60 the voices of Mick and Keith aren't really good anymore. But they had enough pyrotechnics (sometimes literally) to keep me interested. No, they won't make my top 4 list of this year to date (Bruce Springsteen, REM, Coldplay, Solomon Burke) and with 5 concerts ahead (Admiral Freebie, Elvis Costello, Daniel Lanois, Bob Dylan and Emmylou Harris) I don't think they even make the top 5 (or 7). Still, I think this really was the last time I saw them live and I'm glad I went.
But even my father noticed that I didn't dance/jump as much as with U2. That should say enough on this board...

C ya!

Marty (who's still doubting whether or not to buy the single of the remix)

And a hit it is again. Here in the Netherlands the Stones have a top 10 hit with the new remix, surpassing the highest position of the original version (#13 in 1973). It's also their biggest hit since Like A Rolling Stone in 1995 (#10 for 1 week). It's not the highest position of Sympathy For The Devil though, since the Guns 'n Roses cover (talk about pushing some knobs and leaving rock 'n roll alone... ) reached #9.
The Stones do have a new record now. With their average age of 59 1/2 years they are the oldest act ever to reach the Dutch top 10.

C ya!

Marty (who probably will buy the single)

i happen to like it... just puts a different spin on it... and i agree... the little accoustic thing at the end sounds cool as hell. nothing can top the original, but this is pretty cool none the less. but yeah... the video sucks.

I'm not saying I don't like their cover. But it is a cover that's fairly similar to the original. So why is that more rock 'n roll than the Neptunes remix?

Besides, !

Oh yes it is!
It is a great song. And I considered is a truly evil song too. It's good to be bad.

C ya!
