Seth Lakeman told the Daily Mirror July 3, 2008 about this track: "We did it in one take. It's a ghostly story about a rich lady, Lady Howard from Tavistock, coming to visit a guy who makes love to her, takes her money and kills her. But she haunts him for the rest of his life. I've got a fascination for a good story. I always have a good narrative. I do research, but I'm not always bound by facts. I just like a good story - whether it's true or not."
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."
