For the love of XTC
A very overcast sky on my way to work this morning made me think of one of my favorite albums of all time, XTC's Wasp Star: Apple Venus, Vol. 2, and specifically the song "You and the Clouds Will Still be Beautiful."
When I first heard this album (thanks to the Gilmore Girls, reinforcing the point that you just never know where good music is going to turn up,) it was like falling in love with someone new... every time I heard this song, I got the same, stupidly warm glow you get when someone you want to make out with smiles at you from across a room.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
