The Book of Love testo

I accidentally caught a biography of the composer Stephin Merritt on Netflicks, which led me to download the original song. Merritt is an interesting artist, complex person and satisfying performer. The lyrics are so offhand and honest as to make you feel a little guilty or not already knowing some of the words before you hear them.

It feels that familiar - like listening to an old favorite from the first two strums of the guitar.

I also recommend Strange Powers, a documentary about Merritt and the band. And you may also want to peek at the Wikipedia page for the band: This is such a simple, but beautiful love song.

It's got great lyrics that are practical and poetic without being flowery.

I'm absolutely captivated by the singer's deep voice, too One person found this helpful. Awesome song, it's been covered very well by other artists, but I still really like the original. I walked down the aisle to this, its a love song with out being overly sappy.

Magnetic Fields sings an amazingly moving version. He did an excellent version. I walked down the aisle to this song.

From the album

So beautiful. This is the good version of this song. I love it!

The cover version done by Peter Gabriel is sappy and uninteresting. Magnetic Fields is the original version. A far deeper and richer musical experience.

When moments are recapitulated, commiserated, or ego-syntonic, they are most palpable. Hence, the text becomes all the more sublime when read by a lover, as the process of reading itself can substantiate the text. The book of love really is a metaphor to describe the various behaviors we assume or more accurately: Love often is described as an altruistic commitment to another.

However, in reality, we generally love those who "love" us back for our "loving" actions.

Thus, being read to from the book of love is analogous to being loved as the mere act of "reading" is analogous to "loving. My Interpretation I personally think this song is about a person who's madly in love with someone and tells his thoughts on The Book Of Love, which in my opinion, visualizes the love itself, the love society showcases in Hollywood movies.

However when his loved one does the things he doesnt think much of such as reading TBOL to him, he loves and enjoys it although it still doesnt make sense to him but because he loves that person so much. Only my interpretation: Song Meaning When you think about love, it's really pointless and stupid, but when you feel it, you don't care.

General Comment Im yet to find a MF song that doesnt appeal to me.

General Comment Anyone complaining about Peter Gabriel's cover should be ashamed. If Merritt's music wasn't written to be covered by other artists, then how do you explain The 6ths? Also, keep in mind, Gabriel's version is a tribute from a legend to an indie band. I'm sure Merritt was flattered like any artist would be. It's not to say that Stephin isn't a legend in his own right, but Peter Gabriel has made some of the most beautiful unconventional music in the past 30 years.

Washing of the Water being my favorite. Both versions are beautiful. The bareness of the MF's version is amazing, while the production and voice on Gabriel's is incredible.

It's a sad trend to see obsessive fanboys and girls bash something as beautiful as a thoughtful tribute. Brodie Banks. General Comment what can i say? Well, what I think is incredibly cool is how the song describes a cynic who surrenders to his heart. I mean, it's funny! A love song that says "boring" in the opening line--ha! Then the singer waves his big white flag, allowing the "you" to read--anything--to him.

Check out his voice in the second verse. Some of it is just really dumb. I bet he was proud of that line. If you haven't heard this song, ot the album for that matter, definately make it a point to do so.

Excellent pop songwriting. Rate These Lyrics.
