Stephin Merritt interviewed, plays "I Die"

Above is a really beautiful video of Mr. Stephin Merritt playing "I Die"  for Xtra.ca on his ukulele.  It's the sparsest I've ever heard this particularly sparse song sound and I really adore it.  At this link, there is an additional video of Mr. Merritt playing "Andrew in Drag" and also one of him being interviewed, predominantly about queer issues.  Both are recommended, though I'm not sure we need any more videos of him playing "Andrew in Drag," thanks.

There's also a pretty great interview with Mr. Merritt by CBS here.
