5 on Friday - Set 36

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

I'm actually at the writer's retreat as you read this.

(sighing with joy)

I'll be around to visit my fellow 5 on Friday participants once I return. In the meantime, settle in for some tunes that are devilishly attractive, each in their own way.

1 - Old Devil Moon - Frank Sinatra

You've got me flying
High and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside

Wanna cry, wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that old devil moon
In your eyes

- Harburg / Lane

2 - Sympathy For the Devil - The Rolling Stones

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who got killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

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

- Jagger / Richards

3 - Lil Devil - The Cult

She came on with an alligator smile
Dynamite lover, scorpion child
She came on with a cyclone kiss
Hey there baby - you don't never miss

Lizard in a bottle
Hey there little devil

Come on little devil, be my little angel

- Astbury / Duffy

4 - Angels and Devils - Echo and the Bunnymen

Note: The music ends at the 4:15 mark. Inexplicable 3:19 of dead air on this upload (?!?)

Call it a day
When night becomes our mad escape
Forgetting the things you mean to say
When all the right words come too late
And everything falls out of place
Under the pillow
Out of the race
Out of the window

Devils on my shoulder

So, so happy
When happiness spells misery
Mister, me hoping to be
Where ugliness meets beauty
And if you'll see
The demon in you
The angel in me
The Jesus in you
The devil in me

Angels on my shoulder

- de Freitas / McCulloch / Pattinson / Sergeant

5 - Devil's Haircut - Beck

Something's wrong, cause my mind is fading
Ghetto blasting disintegrating
Rock 'n roll, know what I'm saying
And everywhere I look
There's a devil waiting

Got a devil's haircut
In my mind

- Beck / Brown / Coulter / King / Scott / Simpson

Devilishly wonderful choices for this week! I have a Rolling Stones song in my set this week, too, but we didn't eat the nail right on the head this time!

Hope you're having a wonderful time at your retreat!

Drat! I knew you were going to be out of town, so I meant to come by yesterday so I could sign you up on Mr Linky.

Hope you're having a fantastic time!

You left out my favorite "devilish" song - the Dead's Friend of the Devil. It just doesn't get any better than that...
