Belle & Sebastian - I want the world to stop

Belle and Sebastian are one of those 'fleeting' artists I only hear at very irregular intervals.

I had already worked out and posted chords for "If you're feeling Sinister" ( from the 1996 album of the same name, and "Step into my office, baby" from the 2003 album "Dear Catastrophe Waitress". I guess the Glaswegian band's quirky style doesn't sit that well with mainstream radio DJs.

I recently did hear "I want the world to stop" from their 2010 Album "Write about Love", worked out the chords and lyrics, and added them to my Rock Songs Guitar Chords page, along with the previous two. Hmmm... just looking at the gaps in these posts, I guess you can expect the next Belle and Sebastian song from me sometime in 2018!!

The song has a fairly playable bunch of chords: Am, Dm, C, E, A, G, Em and F, has a great melody and some nice harmonies.

You can check out my version off "I want the world to stop" at the link below:
