100 Songs: 005

Wrapped Up In Books by Belle and Sebastian

My bleeding Scottish leftie hippy dippy artsy heart will love Belle and Sebastian forever. This song is everything. It is the past, the present, the future. It's growing up in Glasgow as a slightly pretentious and eccentric young woman, who reads too many books and has big dreams. It's being painted as the manic pixie dream girl, and kind of liking it, because it gives you an identity, and you like feeling like you belong somewhere. I definitely over-identify with Belle and Sebastian! Another really lovely thing about Belle and Sebastian is that their music is really helping my friend who is very ill with a serious brain tumour. They are her favourite band and she has been blogging about her illness, using their song titles as titles for her entry. Stuart Murdoch also tweeted about her blog, which made me happy. I will always love Belle and Sebastian.

Our aspirations are wrapped up in books
Our inclinations are hidden in looks
