Funny Little Frog
by Belle & Sebastian (2006)
Belle and Sebastian formed in Glasgow in 1996. They were a band that I had always heard of, but didn’t really OWN anything by the band until ten years later. In 2006, they released their most recent CD called The Life Pursuit. I don’t really know what prompted me to purchase that disc, but it went on to be one of my favorite CD’s of the year, if not the decade.
There are a lot of amazing tracks on the disc, but my favorite has to be “Funny Little Frog.” According to Wikipedia, the song went on become their highest charting single in the U.K. I had this song on my old MySpace page around the time that my wife and I had taken a trip to Vegas. For some reason, to this day, I still think of that trip whenever I hear this song.
After purchasing The Life Pursuit, I went back and bought several of their previous albums, which are all amazing. Unfortunately, they haven’t released a new disc since 2006, but I seem to remember hearing that they were recently recording something new, so I am definitely looking forward to that.
