Belle and Sebastian: 12 Great Songs and Stories


    Stuart Murdoch’s Glasgow band started off as a college project, with Murdoch turning in the first Belle and Sebastian record, 1996’s Tigermilk, as his finished assignment. While he found himself wrapped up in books, we eventually became wrapped up in his music.

    It’s with that scholastic notion that we present to you as a group the following 12 great songs and the stories that lie within from Belle and Sebastian’s discography. These tracks aren’t ranked, but offered up in a chronological order to better see Murdoch’s evolution over the years.

    Before you dive into this week’s B-sides compilation, The Third Eye Centre, let’s read through some classic B&S. Pay attention. Quiz follows.
