“All My Little Words” by The Magnetic Fields (1999)

1 01 2010

This track is from an epic album, “69 Love Songs,” by The Magnetic Fields (which is really Stephin Merritt, with a fantastic and talented group of friends and musicians joining in and making the music so eclectic and joyful).

Go, right now, and pull this CD album from the collection. You’re going to need it!

Be suspicious of everything you’ve ever heard/read/watched about relationships and romance. Discover it for yourself, because love is everything: beautiful, ugly, nourishing, toxic, divine, tragic….

No one has ever been able to fully describe it. But we try.

Just be prepared for a bumpy road. It’s possible no one in your life really tells you that, except for artists (and musicians). If you’re normal, you’re going to get hurt. We’re all hurt by love at some point. Maybe that’s our common thread.

So when you’re hurt, just know that it’s temporary. “This too shall pass”

Hopefully, you can laugh about it someday, even at the bitterest memories. Trust me, you’ll need to be able to do that.

“Now that you’ve made me want to die
You tell me that you’re unboyfriendable
And I could make you pay and pay
But I could never make you stay”

(Thanks to sharpiefinepoiny for the great vid upload to complement this song so beautifully!)
