By Mary K There are times in your life when you hear a song and it impacts you immediately. That is what happened to me a few years ago when my husband, Tilden invited me to come downstairs to our music room to introduce me to a song that he had come across. Usually when that happens I know it's going to be special because: a he has great taste in music and b he has known me and my musical sensibilities for a very long time. So unsurprisingly, when he put the song on, it immediately shot into my heart like a bullet. The tears welled up in my eyes. I recognized the voice right away. I knew it well - Peter Gabriel, one of my all-time favourites. Peter is the epitome of a complete artist with a great eye and ear for design, spectacle, poetry, rhythm and melody. No one can lift the damn thing.

This is the th post in a weekly series. A new post about a different song is posted each Monday. You can listen to the songs in a Spotify playlist.

By the end of the s, Stephin Merritt had already shown he was a versatile musician, tapping into several musical styles and traditions with numerous projects, chiefly The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, The Gothic Archies, and Future Bible Heroes. Then I realized how long that would be.

So I settled on And whoever the audience liked best at the end of the night would get paid.

The theatrical revue never materialized, but the songs did. Merritt and his collaborators deftly weaved synth pop, folk, and approximately 37 other genres into a sprawling opus that nearly two decades later remains one of his most revered works. What if Merritt wrote a song that had the same name as an existing song? The song has become a hit at weddings, with Merritt having been asked to play it for at least three weddings.

And the shower.

Book Of Love lyrics

Though there are some more covers coming with other instruments and they are also pretty! The "book of love is long and boring". If love were a book, say a textbook, it's a deep, complicated subject and reading about it would be long and it would be boring. In fact it's too complicated, it's too heavy, so much so that "no one can lift the damn thing". And it's tedious to talk or read about it.

The best analogy for tediousness is the book would have to be "full of charts and facts and figures". And even more ludicrously, it has "instructions for dancing", as if you could learn how to dance by just reading about it!


You kinda have to do it to learn it, just like you do for love -- you learn about love by being in love. In other words, I hear a sensual signature. Taya is a gifted, strong, delightful, intelligent, funny, and wise woman. She is a good mother and an infinitely enjoyable conversationalist.

I love her for all of these reasons, and sometimes all at the same time. I love when she wears it because she looks beautiful and it wakes up my God given sensual desire for her.

In fact, it brought tears to my eyes several times when I first listened to it. It is emotional and a delight to the senses, but to my ear the arrangements allow a chance for the spirit of these songs to rise to the surface and be loved.

The few extra bucks is worth the Special Edition.
