Dramatic Irony

While listening to the lemon jelly album for the 840th time today, I couldn't help but remark to the missus that all this joy, coupled with their use of guitars, might mean that they could be the people who did [my favourite track I don't know the name of, but keep watching the tail end of the last episode of Spaced to listen to].

"Well, you never know", remarked she. "Why don't you go and have a look online?"

And I did - going through the lemonjelly.ky site in detail, listening to all of the music clips...and there it was.

'The Staunton Lick' - possibly the happiest and most wonderful piece of music ever created.

It's holding your loved one. It's a pint in the country when you should be at work. It's turning on the christmas lights. A kiss. A tear held in, but only just. The knowledge that it's all going to be all right. That people love you. That it's not just you. And that the world carries on spinning and we'll all muddle through to find a happiness and joy that's uniquely shaped just for us.

Um, I suggest you track it down. And when you've checked what I've said, why not actually buy it?
