YAY!

My mood should be RIGHTEOUS because Elbow just won the Mercury music prize for The Seldom Seen Kid. How many times have I said that this was an amazing, heart-warming and beautiful album? I am now listening to them on Radio 2 singing One Day Like This slightly drunkenly in the style of Chas and Dave. Radcliffe and Maconie are just as overjoyed for them. I LOVE THIS BAND. They are fantastic live, they make you laugh and they can make you cry just as easily. And I know this means I am going to have to share them now, but I'll live.

Just in case you have not been assimilated yet, here are four magnificent tracks from the album:
Grounds for Divorce, used in the trailer for the current Coen Brothers film
Some Riot
Mirrorball. This is beautiful.
And finally, a slice of joy in recorded form, and the song of the summer for all sports broadcasters: One Day Like This
Buy this album. It will make your life better.
