"Take Ecstasy with Me (Magnetic Fields cover)" as written by and Stephin Merritt....
I want to slide down the carpeted stairs
Or down the bannister
I got a new kaleidoscope
And I got a stack of records
It's on your head so don't dare move
We could be happy just listening to your pulse

Take ecstasy with me, baby
Take ecstasy with me

I have to laugh, it's so unreal
To lay and laugh under the northern lights
We've got a lot that others have to realize
In a world where we get beat up just holding hands

Take ecstasy with me, baby
Take ecstasy with me

Take ecstasy with me, baby
Take ecstasy with me

Take ecstasy with me, baby
Take ecstasy with me

Ecstacy, ecstacy, ecstacy

    General CommentI like the original, but this is pretty great too. It's a lot happier than the Magnetic Fields', I think.

    General CommentI like the lines where we 'get beat up just holding hands' and 'be happy listening to your pulse'
    really capture the crest of that E-wave.

    I reckon it's hard to capture words to describe those feelings and that's not a bad effort.

    Now I gotta go listen to Magnetic Fields version.

    General CommentGood thing I got here after these lyrics were corrected, Mellow Harsher, or this would have been strike two for copy pasting different lyrics to a cover. You got lucky this time.
