Belle & Sebastian
I never listened to Belle and Sebastian much before 2010. But when "I Want The World To Stop" came out, I became obsessed INSTANTLY. The mellow, poppy tune with that flirtatious riff and the jovial strings and horns and organ have made it one of my favorite songs not only of 2010, but probably ever.
I was SO pleased to find out that the rest of the album followed suit with this song. "I Can See Your Future", "Sunday's Pretty Icons", "I'm Not Living In The Real World" and "Write About Love" are my other favorites because they all make me so happy! But really, I love every song on the album. It has the perfect balance of up beat songs to more mellow songs. There is something for everyone on this album.
