POPINJAY AWESOME SONG OF THE DAY
The Magnetic Fields - Love is Like a Bottle of Gin
The Magnetic Fields are just one of those bands. You either know about them, or you don’t. This song is taken from their 3-volume concept-album, “69 Love Songs”, originally written as the frontman / writer’s introduction to the world. This slightly camp revue has since gained huge critical reception and is widely considered to be one of the best albums of its time. “Love is Like a Bottle of Gin” is my favourite so far. The lyrics are just bang on and the mood of the tune just makes me think of sitting in a piano bar somewhere, drowning my sorrows in a martini and being serenaded by the melancholic chanteur in the corner. Enjoy.
