Sufjan Stevens is an incredible artist who takes common experiences and cracks them open, showing the beating heart of emotion within. “Pleasure Principle” is a song about a relationship where one partner wants so much more, while the other merely wants pleasure. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking. Enjoy!
