From their 99' release "69 Love Songs" - a three disc behemoth - this weeks track is "A Chicken With It's Head Cut Off".

Stephin Merrit front man, multi instrumentalist, and lyrical genius brings us a hilarious analogy of being head over heals!

Usually brilliantly assembled with synthesised layers and electronica - this album showcases Stephin and Co's raw talents on a broad range of instruments throughout the 69 track monster.

Obviously subject matter involving barnyards and hens gives it mild country tarnish in my opinion. But regardless of boxing it up - it's always been fun track that kept me company out on the road.

Anyway, what's wrong with free love.....

Eligible, not too stupid
Intelligable and cute as Cupid
Knowledgable but not always right
Salvageable and free for the night

Well, my heart's running 'round like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard, falling in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat, getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?
Woah, nelly!

My wife doesn't understand me
Many dozens hope to land me
I'm for free love and I'm in free fall
This could be love or nothing at all

But my heart's running 'round like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard, falling in and out of love
The poor thing's blind as a bat, getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?

We don't have to be stars exploding in the night, or electric eels under the covers
We don't have to be anything quite so unreal, let's just be lovers

Well, my heart's running 'round like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard, falling in and out of love
The poor thing's blind as a bat, getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?
It ain't pretty
