That Summer Feeling #27

Second appearance from Belle and Sebastian here, and it was a toss up whether to post this or the equally lovely “Ease Your Feet In The Sea”, but this one wins because it compliments the recent post about “Unemployed in Summertime” rather neatly:

Belle & Sebastian – A Summer Wasting

Without wishing to tread over old ground (and by the way, thank you for the lovely comments, texts, emails and calls that my post about “Unemployed in Summertime” prompted; more than any others that I’ve ever received they meant a great deal to me), it seems to me the title of this song could be taken in one of two ways: a mournful, reflection on wasted time, or a bright and breezy recollection of a summer from our youth where the summer holidays seemed to stretch out to infinity in front of us, where time wasn’t an issue and where you could just ride your Chopper around the new build estates or simply laze around on playing fields, doing nothing, to your heart’s content.

It’s Saturday. Let’s plump for the latter, shall we?

More soon.
