SONG OF THE WEEK #151: Belle & Sebastian - "Le Pastie de la Bourgeoisie"

Say what you want about this world, but it's the only world where you can get Push Barman To Open Old Wounds. That compilation is so blindingly perfect it should be in every household. Oddly, most of the greatest songs by Belle & Sebastian were recorded for EP's, and 3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light (1997) could be their second best. "Le Pastie de la Bourgeoisie" is a bouncy 3-minute classic that namechecks Kerouac, "Catcher In The Rye" and (Murdoch at his best) Judy Blume.
