The above post is fascinating. I heard “American Pie” a while back and intended to look it up and find out what all the references in the song were to – now I know one of them, and that apparently the Rolling Stones wrote “Sympathy for the Devil” in response. I will probably spend hours on the internet now, following link after link about old rock songs… 🙂
I searched for “Sympathy for the Devil” to begin with because it seemed to fit my antagonist, and I wanted to find another song to fit him as well. I’m still having a hard time finding a second song, but I’m glad I read that post!
