I’ve loved Belle and Sebastian for a long time partially because their songs seem so literary. It’s like they’re 3 minute novels put to music. Case in point, “Wrapped up in Books.”
We’ve got a fantasy affair
We didn’t get wet, we didn’t dare
But the fantasy remains
You better come back to earth again
Our aspirations are wrapped up in books
Our inclinations are hidden in looks
The video even takes place in a bookstore and is ridiculously adorable. My favorite has to be the guy ringing a cowbell while reading.
