I sometimes go through phases where I listen to one artist/musician almost exclusively for months. Currently I find myself completely immersed in The Magnetic Fields.

There are so many gems in the lyrics of Stephin Merritt, always makes me smile...this track has some of my favourites...

"When I was 2 and a half my mother said to me "love is funny you will laugh ...til the day you turn 3""

"Like a kitten up a tree needs a fireman to rescue it, so your fireman I will be and I'll really get into it"

"Where the flesh meets the spirit world,
Where the traffic is thin..."

And talking about lyrics of Stephin Merritt I can't go past this beautiful creation...
"Where the flesh meets the spirit world,
Where the traffic is thin..."

@SueC the moniker comes from a really dumb Burnistoun skit that made me laugh very hard.

The Stranglers are easily one of my all time favorite bands, but to me the cutoff point is 1983, nothing they did after Feline speaks to me. Maybe the b-side Hitman, despite some obvious imperfections in production. And one song off Hugh's first solo album, All the Tea in China.

But when they were good they were great.

Mine too, I like the first few albums, but the recent ones as well (even some from the Paul Roberts phase). The real weak ones were those from around '97/'98.

Those guys seem to write interesting lyrics, @piggymirror! :cool

The opening rhythm immediately made me think of this...


...and now I'm listening to it.

Thanks folks, for the Stranglers tracks - that's something less explored for me than I'd have liked, so it's good to get this on "Curefans FM"... ;)

SueC is time travelling
