> Actually 'Sympathy for the Devil' is a nasty shot at God, if you listen closely to the lyrics:

Sounds like a much nastier shot at mankind, verse by verse. Mick's singing about someone in an observatory role in many of those incidents, or someone who along for a, well, "joy"ride.

> "As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer, as I am in need of some restraint."

And the next line is more of a "don't blame me -- it's your soul that's in peril" comment.

> ...So, you have to consider the source of the lyrics and realize that this group only wrote the song for publicity ... One shouldn't let a profit-motivated band influence what they listen to.

Unless you buy into the "Paul McCartney is Dead" conspiracy theorists, who say this particular tune is the Stones giving the Devil his due, and an acknowledgement of the "Here come the Rolling Stones" message on the cover of Sgt. Pepper.

> Turning off the radio if a song comes on that annoys or disturbs you is a good thing (I do it when Bobby McFarrin's 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' is playing).

Ah, but what's so wrong with getting a little sunshine blown up your butt? Repeat after me, "I, [state your name], have a Cheerful and Sunny disposition." Lather, Rinse, Repeat.
