When I'm feeling sad, or in love, or hopeful, I find myself listening to Magnetic Fields love songs. They're tragic and beautiful. It's hard to listen to anything else after listening to a few of them in a row. They're truly desert island music.
This love song, Take Ecstasy With Me, is so good it's hard to believe it's not on 69 Love Songs. Perhaps this is the song that made Stephin Merritt decide to write love song after love song.
P.S. Did the Magnetic Fields really only perform all 69 love songs in order only 7 times? Because I saw the whole performance in order twice.
