I never heard of The Magnetic Fields until I heard Peter Gabriel's cover of their song, The Book of Love, on his Scratch My Back album. I immediately fell in love with it and thought it would be a great anniversary song for Graham but didn't get around to making my own version until today (our 13th anniversary!). I hope you like it, sweetie! smiley

First of all, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! smiley Secondly, I misread the title, I thought this was gonna be a cover of Bacharach/David 'The LOOK of Love' ... That being said, I dig this ... the percussion puts me in mind of Janet's 'Runaway' and as always your instrument is SMOKIN' HOT! smiley

LOL - I figured a lot of people would be expecting a different Book of Love but I sort of dig that you thought you were going to get the LOOK of Love... that's a song I really love, too. I'll have to do that one day and put it up. I adore it. smiley

Thanks for the comments, Scott! Much appreciated!

You did this so different I almost didn't recognize it...It is such an experience hearing it done this way with the afro-carribean beat behind. It's more haunting when Leon Russell does it, both versions are wonderful.

Ah! Now that's a version I'll have to try and find... Leon Russell is a favorite of mine. Also, you should check out Peter Gabriel's cover - it's deep and dreamy. Thanks sweetness!

WOW! I thought I had heard this song before, but now I am not sure. I must be thinking of the Bacharach one. You have made it your own Carla. Happy late anniversary hope it was a good one. Love the vocal layering and the backwards? purple haze guitar. Cool percussion, snazzy snare and wood blocks/xylophone? Potent uplifting elixir.

Thanks for sharing with us, supremely masterful.

Excellent harmonizing! It's always pleasing to hear single vocalists layering their own recordings. It really makes for an enriched sound. Definitely lots of life and energy in this track, even though it's not speedy and pounding.

@Komit - thanks so much for your comments! On a forced sabbatical from my regular computer so didn't notice you'd commented here. Really appreciate your taking the time!
