Difference (from revision 10 to revision 10) (minor diff, author diff)
(The revisions are identical or unavailable.)
'No Seven, no 8½, no Nine, and no "10"'
Seven (a.k.a. Se7en) refers the David Fincher film [link]. 8½ is the Federico Fellini film [link]. Nine is the Maury Yeston musical performed on Broadway in 1982 and 2003 [link]. And "10" is the Blake Edwards film [link].
In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt says that the arrangement is meant as a Tom Jones tribute, while Daniel Handler suggests Fellini's "campy, sentimental, nostalgic, ridiculous, sublime vision seems to fit right in with the vision of this album".
