    What are the odds that this is the SECOND mention I’ve seen of this song today (which prompted me to listen to it again)? I mean, I never never ever think about this group or song and suddenly it pops up twice! Freaky.
    It is a good song. Heck, this Stephin Merritt outfit is a good group. They’ve just fallen off my radar.

      im6, That is weird and freaky as you said. This is not the song I’d expect anyone would see or hear twice in a single day. It is my favorite among all the versions of this song.

      It is a good song!

      Kat and IM6 after the brilliant 69 love songs I didn’t really get why the Magnetic Fields were not gigantus. For a while I would chat with Claudia Gonson especially when they came to town.
      Slowly the music has faded, “Quickies” felt exactly like that.
      Following a show in Pontiac Claudia promised me that one day she was play The Death of Ferdinand de Saussure for me in a gay piano bar….I am sure you get the joke but I loved the song to bits along with Sweet Lovin Man
      When the Prince was around 3 I caught him in front of the speakers putting on moves to SLM..

      Love the band and will always make the effort with releases and shows

        My Dear Hedley,
        I found the Magnetic Fields late. I don’t even remember how I found them. Right away, I was then by their music and those lyrics!! I’m with you in wondering why they were, “not gigantus.”

        The other piece is I wonder why I missed them as they hailed from Boston.

        It doesn’t matter where or when I found them, just that I did!
