Ugh, I love this song so much: “All My Little Words” by The Magnetic Fields. Perfect for a melancholy Sunday (oh, hello you, hangover).
I think the combination of cheesy and real is what makes this track from 69 𝘓𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘴 charming (those infectious guitar licks, too!); and this comment on Song Meanings says it all: “I feel like the most important line in the song is ‘it is your wings that make you beautiful.’ It isn’t just that it can’t work out, it can’t work out for the very reasons he is in love.”
I don’t know who those duos are. I find both—can I say “cute”? Hope you enjoy these covers as much as I do!
You said you were in love with me (you said you were in love with me)
Both of us know that that’s impossible
And I could make you rue the day (I could make you rue the day)
But I could never make you stay
