And now I'm 19 again, thank you! Wonderful writing about wonderful music. I just love how his lines run into one another. Ps. Just been singing along (those lyrics are still in there) and when does he breathe?!

I remember (during early Rookie) you once helped me and Jamie see a show, and I had never heard more than a couple songs by the Magnetic Fields before that, and I was BLOWN AWAY. Lifelong fan now!! These are suuuuuch good songs, than you for writing about this. (And for sharing your wedding songs, I LOVE knowing what people's wedding songs were!!)
