Sympathy for the Devil" is a song by English rock band the Rolling Stones, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It is the opening track on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet. Rolling Stone magazine placed it at number 32 on its list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". The working title of the song was "The Devil Is My Name", having earlier been called "Fallen Angels".
In the second, a series of abstract vignettes, Godard proves topics as diverse as race, pornography and the irony of interviewing celebrities, which features a demonstration by Black power revolutionaries. Cupid Productions Presents a Film by Jean-Luc Godard 'Sympathy For The Devil'. Running time approx 97 minutes.
Jean-Luc Godard's 1970 film, which alternates late-'60s political propaganda with scenes from the Beggars Banquet album recording sessions. Although "Sympathy for the Devil" was once hailed as "a song of revolution unlike any that's ever been sung," by contemporary standards it is fairly dated, not only for its exaggerated "revolutionary" rhetoric, but for its artfulness. Studio footage of the Stones reworking the title track is interesting for fans, but many of the accompanying sequences drag on way past the point of being interesting.

The Rolling Stones hired, in their naievity, the Hell Angels bikers to control the security at it. And paid them in alcohol. As everyone knows with disastrous consequences. Check out "Sympathy for the devil time is on our side. The video of them practicing shows Kieth really picking a smooth, fast lead. I was not a believer that he could actually even come close to that stinging lead intro. Now I really think Kieif could have pulled it off. The whole damned solo.

Godard's use of a Rolling Stones recording session as a grand metaphor for growth. the informing idea is sheer genius. Joseph Morgenstern - Newsweek, 1970.
The Rolling Stones rehearse their latest song, "Sympathy For the Devil," in a London studio. Beginning as a ballad, the track gradually acquires a pulsating groove, which gets Jagger into a rousing vocal display of soulful emotion that Godard is lucky enough to capture on film. Showing that rock and roll is more than just partying and goofing off, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is a brilliant portrait of the creative process at its most collaborative and arousing. In May 1968, Jean-Luc Godard was permitted to film the Rolling Stones over several days in a London studio as they gradually fleshed out their now classic song "Sympathy for the Devil", and so one might expect simply a documentary about a rock band's creative process read the rest.
