Every song is equally as amazing. I love this single/EP. 3 of B&S's very best songs are on this single/EP. Along with Legal Man and I'm Waking Up to Us, their best music is all there in increments. I'd recomend buying this along with both the Legal Man and I'm Waking Up to Us singles/EPs. 9 of the finest damn Belle & Sebastian songs to be released.

This is a bargain at only 6 bucks! "The Loneliness Of A Middle-Distance Runner" is worth the price of admission alone. Make a bag salad tonight instead of getting takeout and buy this CD.

Belle & Sebastian's cd single Jonathan David is buoyed by the title cut. It is another great example of the Scottish group's sharp melodic ear and supple melodies. The other two tracks are solid, but "Jonathan David" is amongst the band's finest songs.

This is, by far Belle and Sebastian's best work. All three songs are perfect examples of the band's varying sounds. The title track is a bouncy, retro sounding pop tune; Bacharach and the Beatles are definitely present here. "Take Your Carriage Clock..." has one of the most beautiful string arrangements I've ever heard, on a B+S record or otherwise. Stewart Murdoch's lyrics tell the tale of a man who can no longer stand his own mundane job and poor treatment. There is a great anger in his voice, but he pulls it all off in such a refined way, the listener hardly even notices it. The EP closes with "The Loneliness of A Middle Distance Runner", a more layed back track with a terrific chorus: "And no one cares, Oh you care I know, you care I forgot for a while". All in all, a wonderful collection, and a perfect introduction piece to one of the finest bands in indie rock.

At 3 songs and a bit more than 10 minutes, there isn't much material here, though fans will inevitably find this a worthwhile listen. I think it's more evidence that they are still going strong in their mature style. "Jonathan David" is an uptempo track with vocals from guitarist Stevie Jackson. The other two are lower-key, along the lines of the "This Is Just A Modern Rock Song" EP, I think.

I don't like the title track on this EP at all, nor do I like the second b-side "The Loneliness of a Middle-Distance Runner". They sound very similar to much of B&S's recent work, which I do not care for. "Take Your Carriage Clock and Shove It" however is one of the best Belle & Sebastian songs yet, easily making the CD worth the price. That peddle-steel that eases in with "honor forbids me but honor be dammed"... oh baby! It may be the most beautiful second of music you'll hear this year.

this is a really beautiful album. the title track, incidently, can be used on a compilation tape when your best friend takes the girl you like. take your carriage clock is again about this ppor guy who gets [tricked] . but the highlight i think is the loniness of a middle distance runner. a live favourite, rumour had it that b&s were considering releasing it as a single. but i guess that was before johnathan david.

Buy it now...I can't believe no one else has caught the cheeky reference to Iron Maiden in the last track, "The Loneliness of the Middle Distance Runner," which winks at the Iron Maiden song, "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner."
I'm glad to see that B&S have a large and diverse record collection, as it seems most of their fans do not. Pick up Maiden's "Somewhere in Time," and you'll see these bands have a lot more in common than you'd think. Both are excellent at describing people and places and most of all feelings.
In short, both bands are for intelligent, sensitive people who think too much. Get this, and then live dangerously and pick up "Somewhere In Time," it won't bite.
