My Top Ten Belle & Sebastian Tracks

Let's talk about Belle & Sebastian: first of all, who is Belle, and who is Sebastian, exactly? Well, Belle & Sebastian are these guys, a couple of French cartoons, from whom Stuart Murdoch, the leader of the band, took his whimsical name. Belle & Sebastian are all about soft, sweet melodies with lyrics bent toward the depressing details of modern life and romance. They make all the crap that happened to you in high school sound really dreamy, basically.
