I'll take a second of the day to think
About the things that we have done this year
The dog lies down, the pouring rain
I'm underneath the smokers railway arch again

  • incredible tune
  • Ever heard several hundred members of the audience whistleing you along a song? One of my bestest concert memories ever. (2)

  • Korvkonungen - It's a reference to the Alan Sillitoe book 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner' from 1959, and/or the 1962 film adaptation. Iron Maiden seem to have been inspired by the same material. Probably one of the few instances of Iron Maiden and Belle and Sebastian sharing influences.
  • is the title of this song a iron maiden-refference? :(
  • <3
  • The future's looking colorful :)
  • best on jonathan david.
  • Fantastic sound, B&S at their very finest, and that's saying a lot.
  • coregamer, that's a Wurlitzer electric piano. Very distinctive sound, it pops up all over their work since Boy With The Arab Strap.
