** "100,000 Fireflies" is a very lovely-sounding song driven by Susan Anway's beautiful vocals. The opening lyrics are "I have a mandolin / I play it all night long / It makes me want to kill myself" and it doesn't get much more positive from there.



* NewSoundAlbum: The albums following 69 Love Songs did away with signature synthesizers and ventured into various new styles, with mixed approval.

Merritt's other band, The Gothic Archies, released an album of [[FilkSong songs about A Series Of Unfortunate Events]]. Drummer/vocalist/business manager Claudia Gonson is the non-Merritt musician who's had the most staying power.
