I always knew he was good with words
Stephen Merritt, of Magnetic Fields fame, was once a proofreader at Spin magazine. How did I not know this?
The band's song "I Don't Believe You" (off its most recent release, "I") is on a mix that's getting nonstop play in my car now, and it lingers in my head because of such lyrics as
- "So you quote love unquote me; well, stranger things have come to be. But let's agree to disagree."
- "You tell me I'm not not cute. Its truth or falsity is moot. 'Cause honesty's not your strong suit."
- "I had a dream and you were in it; the blue of your eyes was infinite."
OK, back to being on topic.
