Short and oh-so-sweet, for Friday [LotD #29]
Fact: There are few better lyricists than Neutral Milk Hotel and Jeff Mangum.

Fact: There are few better albums than "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"

Fact: There are few better songs than "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"

Fact: There are few better lyrics than this one:

"What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all 'round the sun"

I love this song so much, man.

In truth, I could pick out any lyric from the whole album and it would have a warm and welcoming home in the Lyric of the Day collection. But this one portrays love in such a visual way - as good as any piece of writing of any sort that I'm familiar with, frankly.

Have a great, great weekend.
