Oh, Marcia, I want your long blonde beauty to be taught in high school, so kids will learn that God lives like music in the skin and sounds like a sunshine harpsicord. I want high school report cards to look like this:
I wish I had an evil twin running ‘round doing people in I wish I had a very bad and evil twin to do my will to cull and conquer, cut and kill just like I would if I weren’t good and if I knew where to begin
Down and down we go how low no one would know sometimes the good life wears thin I wish I had an evil twin
My evil twin would lie and steal and he would stink of sex appeal all men would writhe beneath his scythe he’d send the pretty ones to me and they would think that I was he I’d hurt them and I’d go scot free
I’d get no blame and feel no shame 'cause evil's not my cup of tea
Down and down we go how low one would not need to know all my life there should have been an evil twin
There are only a few bands whose albums I make it a point to collect, and The Magnetic Fields is one of them. So far, the count is up to ten albums (one of which has three volumes) and one EP.
I have never seen them in concert, but that will change in a few weeks! Wheeeee!
