A Baby Ruthless Top Tip

I'm mostly posting this so I'll remember it in the future, but I thought you guys might be interested in it, too.

You know how sometimes you want to just post a song, but you don't want to upload it and you don't want to put up a distracting video? But unfortunately, the music industry has yet to come up with a sensible way to let you link to a song?

Here's what you can do: if you can find the song on YouTube, copy the Embed code from the video's page. When you paste the code on your site, change the height to 25.

For example, here's my absolute favorite song in the entire world right now, M83's "Kim & Jessie":



Believe me, you're going to be hearing A LOT MORE on this blog about M83. If you want to get a headstart, watch their mindblowingly great video for "Graveyard Girl." I mean actually watch it. It's totally captivating.

Kim and Jessie
They have a secret world in the twilight
Kids outside worlds
They are crazy about romance and illusion

Somebody lurks in the shadows
Somebody whispers
Somebody lurks in the shadows
Yeah yeah yeah

Dream dressed in blue
It's all they need for now
And forever

Chased by the moon
They shatter their whole peace
With singing

Somebody lurks in the shadows
Somebody whispers
Somebody lurks in the shadows
Yeah yeah yeah

Somebody lurks in the shadows
Somebody whispers
Somebody lurks in the shadows
Yeah yeah yeah

So we can drown our towns with voices
So possible to like it as one
And soon they'll be flying
Say "of course," say "you're lovely"

Somebody lurks in the shadows
Somebody whispers
Somebody lurks in the shadows
Yeah yeah yeah
