Here’s an interesting video showing the songwriting process of the Rolling Stones creating their classic song, “Sympathy for the Devil.” What’s not to like about this clip? You get to see the Stones at their prime in 1968 working on their classic record, “Beggar’s Banquet.” The footage was shot by French new wave cinema icon, Jean-Luc Godard.

I find it interesting to see the song develop from it’s original concept to the classic song we all know and love.
