"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Now Playing 

Someday I'll get around to trying one of those podcast things. Not today.

The Future Bible Heroes last album, Eternal Youth has been on my playlist since it came out over a year ago. On shuffle today, the song "Kiss Me Only With Your Eyes" is playing. A prime example of Stephin Merrit's lyrics, the story in this song could almost seem quaint and funny - a woman who coyly refuses to be kissed, and corrects anyone who tries by 'rapping his knuckles with her fan' - but the sounds, both the gorgeously atmospheric instrumentation and Claudia Gonson's airy swoon, convey a compelling sadness and loneliness.

It's probably not good for my mental health to listen to too much music like this, but it's so good, how can I not? Plus, Tuscadero and Ace of Base are coming up.
