Spectral Display: It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love

Petit Fantome's interactive music video, Superhumanoids' i-D mix, our Valentine's theme song and more in the music we tweeted this week

On what many might argue is a manufactured holiday, it’s still love we’re celebrating, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But among all of the sappy Valentine’s Day sentiments, it’s important to take a cue from Spectral Display’s Michel Mulders and remember that—like all great things—love takes work. The Dutch composer’s 1982 hit, “It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love,” mostly relies on a simple beat and enticing synths, with a few lyrical twists and turns thrown in—much like love itself.
