A song to keep us warm: “Sleep the Clock Around” by Belle and Sebastian

I just came home from watching the live webcast from Belle and Sebastian’s final tour date in Glasgow at a friend’s house. Before giving heed to my sleeping needs I just wanted to share with you a song of theirs that continues to stun me with every listen, even though it has been years since I first heard it. It is called “Sleep the Clock Around” and consists of four of the most brilliantly used chords in the history of pop music (and pop music has been quite decent at making the most of four simple chords throughout the ages). If you have not heard the song before, put on your headphones and marvel at its beauty. If you have: do so once more.
