Another tense, riddling song – everything in the tune is pitching and yawing, rising and falling, the brothers howling and sea-tossed in the middle of it, spun around by a whirlpool whose name is woman. “Give me your heart, I’m your slave! I’m your slave!” – the temptation is clearly strong and obviously fearful. You can guess why it’s irresistible easily enough; the song’s strength is in refusing to explain the dread temptation brings. Though you might feel it, and remember for yourself, and shudder.
