The Magnetic Fields’ frontman stops by the WFUV studio to perform his song “Your Girlfriend’s Face,” armed only with a ukulele. With Stephin Merritt handling the lead — and also walking out of the studio while playing — the song’s humor and wit shines through in a different way.

Allo Darlin’ - My Heart Is A Drummer

As I am preparing myself to say farewell to my pride again
I remember how it was back then:
Id see you light a cigarette, and then you’d ask me to pass your asthma inhaler.
I’d say ‘Don’t you ever think about cancer?’

I woke up with this song stuck in my head.

You’d say ‘Baby, you don’t know but my heart is as strong as a drummer’
‘My heart is as strong as a drummer’

It’s a pretty great song.

You make me feel like apologising for being like this:
do I have to, say I’m sorry for my happiness?
You see it’s like loving ‘Graceland’, it’s not allowed to be but we know it’s everybody’s favourite
deep down in the place where, music makes you happiest.
In the place where my heart is a drummer,
in the place where my heart is a drummer.

Seriously, this song, and this band, so fully embrace pop music and what it stands for, which is accepting the things that make you happy. This song is about sincerity triumphing over posturing and cynicism. And knowing that you’re really cooler than the guy who makes you miserable.


…and when you call me, on the telephone my fingers will twist through the cord
and I’ll slide my feet up and down the wall,
…but I know that I’m stronger than you are
…but I know that I’m stronger than you are

I went to see my psychiatrist who looks exactly like John Slatterly, and realized that I was dressed exactly like a Mad Men character and it weirded me out. I listened to this song again on the subway platform coming back and I almost cried.

…and when you call me, on the telephone my fingers will still twist through the cord
and I’ll slide my feet up and down the wall, 
…but I know that I’m stronger than you are
…but I know that I’m stronger than you are. 

Yeahhh, one of my favorite songs of last year.
