[Home]Boa Constrictor

In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt comments that he asked Shirley Simms to sing Boa Constrictor rather than singing it himself, "Because I always sound like love has wrapped around my heart like a boa constrictor. She doesn't." (cf. his similar comments about I Don't Want to Get Over You.)

"I think of the boa constrictor in The Little Prince," he continues for no apparent reason — [picture of this particular boa constrictor].
