“Bees are buzzing up in my head
I’m trying to think of all the things that you have said
Now I’m finding the words to say
But the springtime takes me so very far away”
Just a heads up, it’s springtime (that is not the heads up, the heads up is forthcoming), so I’m going to be posting a lot more breezy, prettier songs. Spring time for me usually consists of twee, John Cale, and shoegaze
and the stress of trying and failing to find a summer job but yeah.
I get oddly sentimental when it comes to the changing of seasons, only because I have specific songs that I can only seem to listen to during certain seasons. I listen to Belle & Sebastian during every time of the year, but it always brings me back to the spring of grade 8.
My class and I went to Quebec, and I had a pretty impressive amount of spending money. I bought about four Belle & Sebastian albums, even though (slightly pathetic and embarrassing confession alert) I already owned one or two of them, I bought the same ones again, just in case of the slim chance that someone in my class occasionally listened to B&S but didn’t have any of their albums and wanted to hear one. I carried all of the albums in my hand proudly, specifically making sure that my hand wasn’t covering the part of the album that said “BELLE & SEBASTIAN”, so everyone would know what I was holding (I still do this with books and whatnot).
No one noticed/cared/had any interest in listening to them, but I don’t regret it, because most of the ones I bought (If You’re Feeling Sinister, Tigermilk, Live At The Barbican) have become some of my favourite albums. And what I did with the extra copies of albums was I cut up the album artworks and made binder covers out of them, so I could proudly hold my binders as I walked, and people would know what I listened to.
