Song(s) of the Day # 1,285 Olympic Swimmers

Sometimes you come upon a small perfect moment that makes you stop for pause. Such was the case yesterday when I chanced upon this, a song from rather obscure and possibly no longer existent Scottish band Olympic Swimmers. They made an album five years ago called No Flags Will Fly and this is track number four, Apples & Pears. The rest of the record is excellent too but it was this one that actually stopped my heart. At ten passed two to be exact. The Delgados, (friends of the band apparently), Big Dish and 10,000 Maniacs swam into view. Apparently Olympic Swimmers may be working on a follow up. I do hope so!
