Inspiration Playlist Volume 1, Track 9 “The Book of Love”

Today’s Inspiration Playlist track comes from a favorite band of mine, The Magnetic Fields. Much like The Decemberists, the lyrics to their songs are often quite literary and manage to tell a story in very few words. Twitter pal Ksenia Anske recently said that “Every book is about love. The rest of the stuff is just layers on top of it,” which reminded me of the Magnetic Fields song, “The Book of Love.”


The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing but

I love it when you read to me and
You can read me anything
