Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste

Taken from the song Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones, from their acclaimed studio album Beggar’s Banquet (1968). I just had to add in another post for the English rock band as I saw them live earlier this year, to add to the songs of Gimme Shelter, Paint it Black and Ruby Tuesday

Line(s) of the Day #TheWinnerTakesItAll

ABBA Winner takes it all

I don’t wanna talk
About things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history.
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

Taken from the incredibly powerful ballad The Winner Takes it All by Swedish group Abba, from their seventh studio album Super Trouper. Although denied by its songwriter Björn Ulvaeus, the emotive lyrics are widely believed to reflect the break up of his marriage to fellow band member Agnetha Fältskog.
