"Principles of Lust" is a 1991 song created by musical project Enigma.[1]

Overview[edit]

The single was the third one released from their debut album, MCMXC a.D. though in reality Principles of Lust was never an actual song, but an overall title which had three parts, "Sadeness" (part a) "Find Love" (part b) and "Sadeness" (reprise) which was designated as part c. Therefore, the single release of Principles of Lust was actually a version of part b, "Find Love", as "Sadeness" had already been released as a single under its "part" name.
