I don’t know how much longer I can go on writing those four little words. Seriously tedious now. I love the songs and the whole ramble I do before it, but the title needs to change.

Anyway, today’s song… I’ve missed a few days actually (BAD) but oh well. It’s not like anyone actually cares amiright? Today’s song is going to have to be a Belle & Sebastian, because honestly, they’re awesome and I love them. I have… pretty much every album they’ve recorded thanks to my dad. The only problem I have with the music is that for some reason, it plays ridiculously loud on my iPod, so I’ve broken my eardrums and headphones several times already. Other than that, though, it’s pretty damn good stuff.

I first started listening to Belle & Sebastian when the film ‘Juno’ came out, I think. I loved that film so much that I went to find the soundtrack for it so I’d never ever ever have to part with some small piece of it. That’s probably an exaggeration. Whatever the reason for it, I searched for the soundtrack on iTunes. Obviously, iTunes is ridiculously expensive, so I couldn’t afford to buy it all – I had to pick a maximum of three songs (at 99p each, which is robbery, basically) and I ended up with my very first Belle & Sebastian song, ‘Piazza, New York Catcher’. (I just figured out how to rename links. Be very proud)

Another reason to love this band, if you need another after having listened to their music, is that they’re from Glasgow, which means awesome scottish accents all round. Love, love, love. Also, their official website is also worth a look, being super-friendly and all that.

There were so many of their songs I wanted to use for today, but be patient and they’ll show up several days from now when I run out of new bands to praise shamelessly.
