Sometimes in the course of recording an album, I get inspired to play music that isn’t a candidate for the record. This morning, as I sat in my living room enjoying the sun, I started to play “Satan Is My Motor” by Cake. For some reason, that song has started to resonate with me more and more as I think about my motives for doing stuff. I think I am actually driven by something much greater than Satan, but every now and then I do something that I am ashamed of or I think of things happening in this world that are explained away by Christians yet are beyond morally responsible.
So anyway, I really like this song right now, and I recorded it after I woke up this morning: Satan Is My Motor
