Road Songs (Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra- For Whom The Bell Tolls

It is only apposite to finish this week's 'Road Songs' column with this track based on the novel with the same name by Ernest Hemingway, an author who symbolised machismo and who probably enjoyed speeding (I have no evidence to support this claim and for all I know Hemingway might not have known how to drive). The combination of the string section of the SFSO with the rock band render this track a beautiful and masterful beat, hard to match in pop music.
