So, as previously threatened, this is another of my older mixes. This need to make this one kind of struck like a bolt of lightening when I first heard the song that has since become track no. 1.

This is, as should surprise no one who knows me and my tastes in characters very well, a Lucifer playlist. Not Supernatural Lucifer --though there are, of course, elements-- not any specific Lucifer. This is the archetype of the devil as a literary figure, and to my great satisfaction, I believe it is both narratively and theologically sound. Fundamentally, it's about pride, the destructiveness thereof, and how redemption can be had for the asking but not at any other price.

An unfortunate number of the songs on this playlist turn up on other lists I've made, but it can't be helped; I think I managed to be using them all very differently here. This is conceived as a dialogue between the Devil, God, and Man, and is one of my absolute favorites of all the mixes I've made.
