"Some of it is just transcendental / Some of it is just really dumb."

Saw The Magnetic Fields last night. It didn't disappoint. The highlight for me: Stephin Merrit performing "The Book of Love" (one of the finest of the 69 Love Songs) alone on his ukelele. Of course the mood was killed when the song was followed with the news that Peter Gabriel has recorded the song (in a very different way) for the J. Lo/Richard Gere remake Shall We Dance. Shudder.
