The considerable songwriting talent of Stephin Merritt

That was tracks 5, 6 and 7 from "69 Love Songs" by The Magnetic Fields released in 1999. (Yes, it contains 69 love songs).

More about Stephin Merritt (Wikipedia).

Some background on Reno Dakota (which is sort of a repost, (apologies to any long time readers actually paying attention to my various obsessions..)):
  • Reno Dakota is a documentary film-maker (Stephin is gay),
  • Nino Rota is a composer who scored some Godfather I & II and some Fellini films, and
  • Pantone 292, well, duh.

(Come back later and listen if you are busy right now. Each of these songs is perfect I think).
