A little Belle & Sebastian tonight, I think.
This is one of my favourite songs ever, which is something of a puzzle to me – I don’t really know or like much else of Belle & Sebastian, or didn’t the last time I checked them out. I don’t even know the lyrics to this song, to be honest.
I just like the way it sounds, which makes the actual lyrics irrelevant to me. My absolutely favourite part starts at around 2:10, if you actually decide to watch it.
The video is kind of fun, too; it just seems like some guys driving around and doing stuff, and somehow it seems to fit with the song.
