Ben Gibbard – “I Don’t Want To Get Over You” (Magnetic Fields Cover Live At Stereogum Range Life 2010)

There’s nothing like an unplugged Ben Gibbard set to remind you that the man has refined a signature style of storytelling. And there’s nothing like an unplugged Ben Gibbard unveiling his cover of another cherished lyricist to make you feel lucky to be within earshot. For those of you that couldn’t join us at our Range Life party down in Austin, we wanted to bring you a highlight of a week full of them. For the first time, Ben Gibbard covers the Magnetic Fields’ “I Don’t Want To Get Over You.” It was already Scott’s favorite Stephin Merritt Love Song. Something tells me it might now be one of his favorite anybody songs. Thanks for doing it, Ben.
