Today's "Best Song Ever"

The Magnetic Fields "Born On A Train"

This is the most synthed out ode to the rail that has ever been sung. Stephen Merrit's voice plays it dead robotic like straight. The music is mechanical and full of cascades of very not-glossy synth melodies.

Stephen Merrit = the only gay showtune writer to ever claim to be birthed on a train.
