Caleb Followill recalls here on this rumba-flavored song his "favorite friend of all" - a band associate who died of cancer. The entire WALLS album, in fact, is a tribute to his influence on the band.
"He was a very challenging guy," Jared Followill told NME. "He would come on the road with us and be involved in setlists and he wanted us to try new things and keep us on our toes. His passing was a big part of why we challenged ourselves."
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
