What is unfortunate about Get Lost is that despite the excellence of perhaps half its tracks, some of the songs are rather unmemorable. Overall the album is much darker than its precursor, both in its malicious lyrics and overbearingly depressive subject matter. Why I Cry’ epitomizes Merritt’s extraordinarily blunt wit, the irony of his music and how he can still maintain affection through parody – it is the perfection of his style. Any fan of his work will undoubtedly find something to grasp onto within the record, and like any Magnetic Fields album, will have its layers peeled away indefinitely. All the summer days Where we used to play Walking hand in hand Castles in the sand. So you said goodnight But you meant goodbye Now our love has died This is why I cry.

The Magnetic Fields is a New York-based group fronted by Stephin Merritt. Recent albums released under the name "The Magnetic Fields" usually consist of synth-pop music in a 1980s style underlying clever lyrics which are often heavily ironic.
Just as important, his largely theoretical group starts to resemble a band-although cheap synth rhythms remain their thing, the banjo, flute, and ukulele are felt as unique sound, not just arch affectation. Here and there, you'd even swear Merritt is singing about his own feelings. How'd he ever come up with that?
On the Fields' previous outing, Get Lost, you can hear Merritt beginning to lean toward simpler, more elegant arrangements; 69 Love Songs could easily be seen as a continuation of that trend. And the songs themselves? Well,.
