As the biggest God Help the Girl fans this side of Glasgow, we spent the week thinking about Belle & Sebastian.
A panel of esteemed sad bastards fans voted on the list of The Top 25 Belle & Sebastian Songs of all time until now. Song write-ups have wistful reminisces abut the Mets, the Virgin Megastore in Times Square, bad temp jobs, and, sometimes, the band.
If you need something to listen to while reading the big list, we put together a Spotify playlist. Magic words: put spotify:user:sportsalcohol in the search bar in Spotify to start following us.
The Outcasts posts talks about the songs that hovered on the fringes of the list.
Jesse argues that God Help the Girl revives the movie-musical genre that Rex Harrison tried so hard to kill.
And, if you don’t believe it, try not to be charmed by Belle & Sebastian Week’s Track Marks (yes, we’re still calling it that): “I’ll Have to Dance with Cassie,” by/from God Help the Girl.
