Devil's Spoke

Album: I Speak Because I Can (2010)
Charted: 97
  • This bluesy track introduces Marling's second studio album. It's a lonely, lusty tune that ends with two lovers "Eye to eye, nose to nose, ripping off each others clothes in a most peculiar way."

    Marling admits the idea came from a time when she tried to salvage a bad relationship. She told Daniel Rachel (The Art of Noise: Conversations with Great Songwriters): "Soon after writing that song I stopped romanticizing situations. It was an embellished situation in my life: the classic unchangeable, awful man."
