After playing concert dates in L.A., and observing Tinseltown's fast-forward society, Belle & Sebastian couldn't get Hollywood out of their heads.
"I Want The World To Stop" melodically expresses fascination, bewilderment and melancholy at seeing humanity's drift from the freeways to the suburbs and into the dusk.
Both musically and lyrically, "I Want The World To Stop" is one of Belle & Sebastian's most valuable gems --- even after 14 years of recording. The song gets stuck in listeners' heads with a cool beat and a kick-ass bass line.
It's definitely a California song for the headphones, like totally.
"I Want The World To Stop" is from the Scottish band's new album, Write About Love. The whole album rocks and is worth the bucks.
Visit the official Belle & Sebastian website and see when they're in concert near you. You'll totally dig it.
