In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt says, "I wanted to make a cello solo out of an electropop song. Also, I've been trying to do a two-note melody for a long time, and how better to do that than over a three-note cello loop".
Stephin Merritt's vocal is heavily treated, accentuating it's natural lugubriousness.
LD Beghtol writes:
Another super fun one to sing live because the backing vocals are so tricky — and it's really hard to sing without any inflection or emotion at all, unless you're a German new-waver at heart… oh, wait, we all are!
