how f___ing romantic

i just remembered the best example of the over-the-top displays of love i mentioned in my last blog: the magnetic field's 69 love songs. they take love songs to such absurd heights that they somehow regain some meaningful sentiment. the album contemporizes love songs full of cycicism, detachment and irony showing how sincere, honest love songs are probably an impossibility. but at the same time, you can't help wishing you could sing these exact songs to your lover.
