Big braai at our place today, so I’m writing this in advance. That’s not to say that I wasn’t going to share this amazing song anyway. As a follow up to We Were Beautiful it ticks every B&S box. The oboe box is particularly well ticked from the very first bar.

As a message of unfaltering, unconditional love it hits the mark completely. I see it as a parent’s reassurance and commitment to a child, but it could be any caring, nurturing relationship I guess.

This is the teaser for the second of three EPs that Belle and Sebastian are releasing over the next few months.
It’s worked. My interests are piqued.

I don’t love anyone

…(but you’re not just anyone).

Here’s the latest offering from ex-Babyshambles lead singer Pete(r) Doherty, with the clever subtitle.

It’s actually a very gentle, very honest, deeply intimate love song, simply crafted and openly delivered. Maybe there are some people out there who need their declarations of love accompanied by fireworks and flamboyantly-dressed exotic animals. Each to their own.
Pete(r) Doherty sees no need for that sort of decoration, which is why this song is as beautiful as it is.
