I hate it more than anything when people look me up and down in the subway. I want to yell at them to please stop because it feels vulgar and impolite.
I call this: "Variation of looking miserable on a photograph."
"Variation with hat." Ahahaha!
I think the very first chords of "Funny Little Frog" are an hommage to the Shangri-La's "I Can Never Go Home Anymore". If that would be true then Belle & Sebastian join Jens Lekman in being blatantly inspired by them, though I suppose chord-similarity is something entirely different from using a chorus as a sample... I love Jens Lekman's almost-criminal-sample-technique more than anything though, it's like a jigsaw puzzle.
