Instamatic - Sympathy for the Mastermind (Taylor Swift vs Rolling Stones)

from 21​/​22 Instamatic & Captain Obvious by fingertrouble aka Reality Engine



"The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist." - Baudelaire.

Last and final Taylor Swift - Midnights mashup, honest! Between me and Ian Fondue we'll have an album at this rate...

When I heard Mastermind, I thought of various devilish tracks, and Sympathy for the Devil worked best - the bit about the childhood hit hard, and also as a Taurus I do quietly possessive love-bombing quite well, so that resonated. Also it was fun to make Taylor into the devil at the end.

Thanks again to Ian Fondue for the feedback and advice,

Taylor Swift - Mastermind
Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil
