Recommendation: Andrew in Drag

Someone recommends…

Andrew in Drag
A music video

Just a few days ago I’d discovered a band from the 90′s called Magnetic Fields and have been listening to them a bunch.

I was surprised to see a song of theirs posted on my youtube feed from Domino records. The whole song can be summed up by a single line: “The only girl I’ll ever love is Andrew in drag.”

NB: The video features brief nudity. There is also a music-only version.

    Thank you for putting this up! I didn’t know the Magnetic Fields had a new album (even if 2012). They are fabulous and anybody and everybody needs to listen to their 69 album. In fact, I think I’ll go do ‘When My Boy Walks Down the Street’ again.

    Also check out ‘The 6ths’, ‘Future Bible Heroes’, ‘Gothic Archies’; all other projects by the man behind the Magnetic Fields, Stephin Merritt

    Many Magnetic Fields songs reference gender-bending and related issues. One great example is the song ‘You’re so Technical’ off the House of Tomorrow EP, where the chorus ends with ‘are you a boy or a girl?’

    MF – Wayward bus / Distant plastic trees (90-91)
    MF – Holiday (1994)
    MF – House of Tomorrow EP (1995)
    The 6ths – Wasps Nests (1996)

    I very very highly recommend the above 4 albums =)
