The considerable songwriting talent of Stephin Merritt, Part 2: The Book of Love

okay, so, maybe the scrubs finale was on the telly last night. but i didn't know this song last time i saw it... so... here is peter gabriel singing a magnetic fields song. (side note: i had 'So' at an impressionable age. it was on high rotation. pretty good album). anyway, back to magnetic fields. stephin merritt. damn.

here is the original version: (it's track 12 on '69 love songs')

(some more magnetic fields songs i particularly like).

that guy can write a song. here is the peter gabriel version from the scrubs finale, if you're into that kind of thing (and for some reason i think there's a reasonable chance you are...):
