If You Don't Like This Song, I Don't Like You, Vol. 2

Welcome back to If You Don't Like This Song, I Don't Like You! This time we'll go a bit more modern. The song is "Lazy Line Painter Jane" from Belle & Sebastian's 1997 EP of the same name. The female vocalist is someone named Monica Queen. I've been in love with this song for a long time, but my fondest memory of it is from when I saw the band live back in 2006 at Chicago's Riviera Theatre. Stuart Murdoch said how a fan had written to say that his wife (the fan's wife, that is) should sing with them when they're next in town, and asked if that fan and his wife were there. And they were, so they brought the woman on stage to sing the female part. She was a bit tentative at first, but once we all started cheering for her she was great. I suppose it could've been a setup, but I doubt and I don't see the purpose of one anyway.

Here's the embedded file, though I'm afraid the computer speakers just don't have the same oomph as my stereo.

EDIT: The embedding didn't seem to work, so here's the link:
