Lacking the outrageously zany songs or the really deep songs of volumes 1 and 2, volume 3 of 69 Loves Songs should appropriately be the third of the three albums that you buy. But you should still buy it. At least, give it a listen.
While it doesn't have the the songs that stay with you for weeks like "My Only Friend," "Epitaph for My Heart," "Time Enough for Rocking..." "Very Funny," "Abigail..." "All My Little Words," "Book of Love" "Nothing Matters When We're Dancing" and on and on... it also does not have the serious misfires and crap of the first two albums. Note: "Love is Like Jazz," "Punk Love," "How F*ing Romantic."
Give these songs from Volume 3 a listen if you are still on the fence:
Busby Berkely Dreams
Wi' Nae Wee Bairn Ye'll Me Beget
Yeah! Oh Yeah!
Silly, sentimental, quirky and sarcastic. Just what you want from the Magnetic Fields.
