Stephin Merritt's showtunes

Post by bluebottle » Sun Mar 26, 2006 7:06 am

got this the other day.

absolutely brilliant.

'Showtunes' is basically a collection of music/songs he wrote for three different plays 'The Orphan of Zhao', 'Peach Blossom Fan' and 'My Life as a Fairy Tale'.

Stephin Merritt is the guy behind the Magnetic Fields
(find 69 love songs if you haven't heard of them)

'something really witty/funny or profound here!'

I've got one horrible rip of the short title song he did the for the indie Internet film series The Lucky Ones, which was actually an elaborate car advertisement, but charming (in a flawed way) nonetheless. It's a fun little song.
