“Heaven and Hell” – Black Sabbath – Ain’t it True?

My GF was talking to me as she was driving to take care of a patient who is a schitzo fundy xian who accuses her of being a Satanist, which will stop soon as they can refuse to see certain patients who have religious prejudices against Witches. Anyway she was singing Ozzie Osbourne’s “witches at black masses” and i got on the pc to find it  but can’t, think it is in their War Pigs Album, messaged MG to give me the link.

Anyway, that brought back my favourite Black Sabbath song Heaven and Hell with the late Ronnie James Dio as lead vocalist. I Love this song, especially when half way through they break into some of the best lead guitar, bass and drumming in a crescendo that just Makes me get up to play “air guitar” mostly the bass, but also the lead guitar. I’ve been up since 1am so after the coffee a second boost from the music. I know i probably posted it over a year ago but then took out a lot of music videos just save space here. Enjoy!

And here are the words from YT –

Sing me a song, you’re a singer
do me a wrong, you’re a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
the less that you give, you’re a taker
So it’s on and on and on, it’s Heaven and Hell, oh well

The lover of life’s not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
the sooner you’ll know that you’re dreaming
So it’s on and on and on, oh it’s on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!

Well if it seems to be real, it’s illusion
for every moment of truth, there’s confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
and it’s on and on, on and on and on….

They say that life’s a carousel
Spinning fast, you’ve got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they’ll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
you get to keep the gold that falls
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You’ve got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

And here is a live version, not imbedded but linked.

  1. Love Black Sabbath (I was musically corrupted as a kid by my much older brother who was a total metal head). All respect to RJD, but I have to admit Ozzie was my fav. I love the cheesy OTT dark drama of Mr Crowley!
