Flip Your Wig – The Magnetic Fields "69 Love Songs"

Welcome a very special edition of Gay-Nerds biweekly highlight of music from members of the GLBT community and their allies. Today is that miraculous corporate confection designed to keep committed folk paranoid and demanding while their single peers face rejection, self-loathing, and an entire day spent weeping uncontrollably to “The Queen is Dead” in their bedroom. Rather than go straight to the gooey manufactured sweetness of puppy-love pop song or tear smeared journals of the haters, I decided a balance of both ends of the spectrum with Magnetic Fields’ “69 Love Songs”; three discs stuffed with Stephen Merritt’s sincere, sarcastic, sweet and sorrowful reflections on the subject.
