    Belle and Sebastian - Write about Love

    3:30

    Belle and Sebastian - Write about Love
    Album Write about Love (2010)



    I know a spell
    That would you make help
    Write about love, it could be in any tense, but it must make sense

    I know a trick
    Forget that you are sick
    Write about love, it could be in any form, hand it to me in the morning

    I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
    At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
    The city's right below, I'll ride upon a friend
    He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

    The seconds move on (if you watch the clock)
    And the sky grows dark (if you're looking up)
    And the girls move from thrill to thrill on the tightrope walk (on the tightrope walk)

    I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
    At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
    The city's right below, I'll ride upon a friend
    He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

    I know a way (so you know the way)
    Get on your skinny knees and pray (Maybe not today)
    You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room (of your living room)
    You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room

    THE BOY WITH THE ARAB STRAP - Belle and Sebastian

    5:15

    Fan video for the Belle and Sebastian song The Boy With The Arab Strap from their 1998 album of the same name. Image montage from Kenneth Anger films. Lyrics:

    A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
    The odour of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by
    Day upon day of this wandering gets you down
    Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

    Hovering silence from you is a giveaway
    Squalor and smoke's not your style
    I don't like this place, we better go
    Then I compare notes with your older sister
    I am a lazy gett, she is as pure as the cold driven snow

    What did you learn from your time
    In the solitary cell of your mind?
    There was noise to distract you from anything good
    And the old prison food
    Colour my life with the chaos of trouble
    'Cause anything's better than posh isolation
    I missed the bus
    You were laid on your back
    With the boy with the Arab strap
    With the boy from the Arab Strap

    It's something to speak of the way you are feeling
    To crowds there assembled
    Do you ever feel you've just gone too far?
    Everyone suffers in silence, a burden
    The man who drives minicabs down in Old Compton
    The Asian man
    With his love/hate affair
    With his racist clientele

    A central location for you is a must as you stagger about
    Making free with your lewd and lascivious boasts
    We all know you're soft 'cause we've all seen you dancing
    We all know you're hard 'cause we've all saw you drinking
    From noon until noon again
    You're the boy with the filthy laugh
    You're the boy with the Arab strap

    Strapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop
    Comic celebrity takes a back seat as the cigarette catches
    And sets off the smoke alarm
    What do you make of the cool set in London?
    You're constantly updating your hit parade
    Of your ten biggest wanks
    She's a waitress and she's got style
    (Sunday bath time could take a while)

    Belle & Sebastian - Is It Wicked Not To Care?

    3:23

    Belle & Sebastian
    Album: Boy With The Arab Strab(1998)

    Is It Wicked Not To Care?

    Is it wicked not to care when they say that you're mistaken
    Thinking hopes and lots of dreams that aren't there?
    Is it wicked not to care when you've wasted many hours
    Talking endlessly to anyone that's there?
    I know the truth awaits me
    But still I hesitate because of fear

    Skipping tickets making rhymes
    Is that all that you believe in?
    Wearing rags to make you pretty by design
    Rusting armour for effect
    It's not fun to watch the rust grow
    For it will all be over when you're dead

    Counting acts and clutching thoughts
    By the river where the moss grows
    Over rocks the water running all the time
    Is it wicked when you smile Even though you feel like crying
    Even though you could be sick at any time?

    But if there was a sequel
    Would you love me as an equal?
    Would you love me till I'm dead

    [Instrumental]

    If there was a sequel Would you love me like an equal?
    Would you love me till I'm dead
    And if there was a sequel
    Would you love me as an equal?
    Would you love me till I'm dead
    Or is there someone else instead?

    Belle and Sebastian - Another Sunny Day

    4:05

    Lyrics:
    Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden
    You were digging plants, I dug you, beg your pardon
    I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
    It broke the heart of men and flowers, and girls, and trees

    Another rainy day, we're trapped inside with a train set
    Chocolate on the boil, steamy windows when we met
    You've got the attic window lookin' out on the cathedral
    And on a Sunday evening bells ring out in the dusk

    Another day in June, we'll pick eleven for football
    We're playing for our lives the referee gives us fuck all
    I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
    Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds

    Now, everybody's gone you picked me up for a long drive
    We take the tourist route the nights are light until midnight
    We took the evening ferry over to the peninsula
    We found the avenue of trees went up to the hill
    That crazy avenue of trees, I'm living there still

    There's something in my eye a little midge so beguiling
    Sacrificed his life to bring us both eye to eye
    I heard the eskimos remove obstructions with tongues, dear
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, I didn't complain
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, please do it again

    The lovin' is a mess, what happened to all of the feeling?
    I thought it was for real, babies, rings and fools kneeling
    And words of pledging trust and lifetimes stretching forever
    So what went wrong? It was a lie, it crumbled apart
    Ghost figures of past, present, future haunting the heart

    (I do not own this song.)

    Nobody's Empire

    Lying on my bed I was reading French
    With the light too bright for my senses
    From this hiding place, life was way too much
    It was loud and rough round the edges

    So I faced the wall when an old man called
    Out of dreams that I would die there
    But a sight unseen, you were pulling strings
    And you had a different idea

    I was like a child, I was light as straw
    When my father lifted me up there
    Took me to a place where they checked my body
    My soul was floating in thin air

    I clung to the bed, and I clung to the past
    And I clung to the welcome darkness
    But at the end of the night
    There’s a green green light
    It’s the quiet before the madness

    There was a girl that sang like the chime of a bell
    She put out her arm and she touched me when I was in hell

    Someone sang a song and I sang along
    Cause I knew the words from my childhood
    Intellect, ambition they fell away
    They locked me up for my own good

    But I didn’t mind cause the silence was kind
    And you spoke to me in whispers
    There was the sound of the wind in the cold cold dawn
    And the quiet hum of business

    Let me dangle a while in this waiting room
    I don’t need to go I don’t need to know what your doing

    Lying on my side you were half awake and your face was tired and crumpled
    If I had a camera I’d snap you now ‘cause there’s beauty in every stumble

    We are out of practise we're out of sight
    On the edge of nobody’s empire
    If we live by books and we live by hope
    Does that make us targets for gunfire?

    Now I look at you you’re a mother of two
    You’re a quiet revolution
    Marching with the crowd singing dirty and loud
    For the people’s emancipation

    Did I do ok, did I pave the way?
    Was I strong when you were wanting?
    I was tied to the yoke with a decent bloke
    Who was stern but never daunting

    And he told me to push and he made me feel well
    And he told me to leave that vision of hell to the dying

    Belle and Sebastian - The Rollercoaster Ride

    6:38

    Album: The Boy with the Arab Strap
    Lyrics:

    Hey people, looking out the window at the city below
    Hey people, looking out the window, full of fun and sorrow
    Hey people, looking out the window at the city below
    Hey people, looking out the window, you'll be gone tomorrow

    The rollercoaster ride
    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    Take Judy, with her bow and arrow, she's a mastermind
    Too frumpy for the teenage population of her kind
    Car coat, she has a quilted jacket with a hood if it rains
    Big pockets for the pharmaceuticals she takes to fix her brain

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    A puzzle, for the moment settle down to do it with him
    You're happy cause your cosy and the rain comes rattling in
    It tickles, and it's something that is very good for the skin
    You're waiting for a baby, Baby, watch the idiot running

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    You're hanging from the balcony upon the riverboat glass
    You're watching with your mouth wide open for the top of the class
    She came on with the boys while you were stuck in various poses
    If you were to remove your clothes d'you think the singer would notice?

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    The celebrated Scottish indie pop group Belle and Sebastian are welcomed back for a second Late Night Tales, the 27th in the esteemed compilation series. Belle and Sebastian formed in Glasgow in 1996 where the success of college recorded cult debut album 'Tigermilk' led the band to signing to Jeepster for 'If You're Feeling Sinister'; listed by Pitchfork at #14 in its top 100 albums of the 90s and is widely considered the band's masterpiece. Following the critically acclaimed 'The Boy With The Arab Strap' B&S signed with Rough Trade (UK) and Matador (US) and have released a further five albums, most recently 'Belle And Sebastian Write About Love' in 2010. Other
    accolades include being voted Scotland's greatest band in a poll by The List in 2005, their own Bowlie Weekender festival, a Brit Award and Mercury Music Prize and Ivor Novello Award nominations. The current line-up is founder Stuart Murdoch, Stevie Jackson, Chris Geddes, Richard Colburn, Sarah Martin, Mick Cooke and Bobby Kildea.

    Their scene straggling 2006 Late Night Tales included pure pop, 60s psyche, 70s rock, West Coast harmonies, beat groups, folk balladering, punk, indie, girl groups, bossanova. This new selection only delves deeper into their shared influences and inspirations, along with a subtle nod to digging for rare sampled beats: not perhaps an trait usually associated with B&S. World-wise psychedelic breaks thread the mix together; significantly so with two tracks from Broadcast bookending a first half that includes late 60s dreamers The Wonder Who? and Joe Pass, father of Ethio-jazz Mulatu Astatke, harpist Dorothy Ashby and the 21st century beats of Gold Panda.

    Following a mid-section detour through dissonant post-punk and deep jazz courtesy of The Pop Group and Stan Tracey Quartet; recent releases from fellow Scots Remember Remember and South Carolina's Toro Y Moi rubs shoulders with Ce'cile's 2002 Cure referencing riddim 'Rude Bwoy Thug Life' and Blood, Sweat & Tears classic version of 'Spinning Wheel'. For the obligatory Late Night Tales cover version, Belle and Sebastian have chosen The Primitive's 1988 pop-punk classic 'Crash', recreated in the band's own inimitable style. Two beautiful records close the mix: Steve Parks haunting soul vocal 'Still Thinking Of You' and an excerpt of the calm improvisation 'On The Other Ocean' from David Behrman's 1977 experimental album. As ever, the trip concludes with our bedtime story with the third part of Paul Morley's 'Lost For Words'.

    This is music for the Celt in all of us. Holed up in a West End of Glasgow apartment, the wind yowling mercilessly about us, we drift off to the sound of bliss. There is only warmth here and, obviously, a draft or two fired in the direction of Belle and her good friend Sebastien.
