Dear Catastrophe Waitress is the sixth studio album by Scottish indie pop band Belle & Sebastian, released on 6 October 2003 on Rough Trade Records. Producer Trevor Horn, former member of The Buggles and producer of groups like Yes and Frankie Goes to Hollywood, oversaw the production of the album, and gave it a more polished, pop-friendly sound, which stood in sharp contrast with their previous lo-fi, folky albums (although songs like "Lord Anthony" hearkened back to their old sound).

Dear Catastrophe Girlfriend Dear Catastrophe Girlfriend I'm sorry if he hit you with a full can of Coke It's no joke Your face is bleeding You'll soon be leaving this town to the clowns who worship No one but themselves No one but themselves. I hate feeling this way, oh I hate feeling this way, oh I know you hate it too, oh Now that your coffee's growing cold, oh All of the customers look so old, oh Honey if I could be so bold. Belle & Sebastian Lyrics. album: "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" (2003). Step Into My Office, Baby Dear Catastrophe Waitress If She Wants Me Piazza, New York Catcher Asleep On A Sunbeam I'm A Cuckoo You Don't Send Me Wrapped Up In Books Lord Anthony If You Find Yourself Caught In Love Roy Walker Stay Loose.

Dear Catastrophe Waitress collects Belle and Sebastian’s greatest strengths: sugary, melodies and jangly indie pop. The title track offers up a jaunty acoustic strum pitted against orchestral flourishes, and Stay Loose harks back to ‘60s-era English dancefloors, combining classic pop and New Wave sounds. Piazza, New York Catcher is a sweet, folky love song stripped to just acoustic guitar and Stuart Murdoch’s gentle vocals, and Lord Anthony feels like classic, poignant B&S, with a gentle melody and fluttering strings. Dear Catastrophe Waitress Belle and Sebastian.

Dear Catastrophe Waitress" is one of those rare, cherished albums whose every song is good, either in part or in whole. There's no need to skip tracks while listening to this album. Each track is equal in quality, but that's where the equality stops. All songs on this album have something unique about them that helps to make every listen a slightly new experience. I've listened to other B&S albums hoping to find more songs along a similar vein, but all others seem to be an inchoate, sometimes simplistic, version of the musical mastery on this album. DEAR CATASTROPHE WAITRESS has provoked such listening addiction as most of the band's earlier work.
