The Boy With The Arab Strap

Posted by That Other Mike on 28/11/2008

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.

  1. I was a huge fan back in the “Judy and the Dream of Horses” days, but haven’t listened to them for bloody ages. Must find my old CDs.
