Belle & Sebastian talk and sing about “…Love”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This cracks me up and I’m pretty sure that’s intentional.  I think there’s some sort of BBC in joke I’m not totally getting.  Regardless, I’ll never pass up an opportunity to see Belle & Sebastian play their songs or talk or pick their nose or whatever.  Have I said yet how I think this is their best album since Arab Strap?  A return to form, if you ask Peter.

25 favorite albums

These are albums I love listening to from beginning to end and have a magical appeal no matter the time, place or mood. These are not necessarily the albums I respect the most. In other words: this is a list of what I consider to be my favorite albums—but not, in all cases, what I consider to be the best albums. I’ve listed them in chronological order of discovery (I guess I didn’t discover anything good during college years: 1995-1998.)

01 beatles_abbey-road abbey road the beatles [part of my earliest musical memories—thank you Mom]
All time favorite. The second side of the album is my favorite 22 minutes of popular music recorded.

02 thriller-michael-jackson thriller michael jackson [Dixon 1982, age 5]
Do I need to explain anything? Even if the only song on the album was Wanna Be Startin’ Something, this would be one of my five favorite albums.
