Step into My Office, Baby [US]

Step into My Office, Baby [US]

by Belle and Sebastian

Overview

"Step Into My Office, Baby" is the lead single from Belle & Sebastian's fine 2003 record Dear Catastrophe Waitress. Produced by Trevor Horn, the song is the most produced B&S song, with shifting moods and sounds, veering from bouncy, almost glitter rhythms to weepy string sections. It is a stunning song, easily one of their best. The other two songs on the EP are very good as well, certainly good enough to be included on the album. "Love on the March" is a sweet bossa nova ballad with many cute ba-ba-bas and the usual pithy lyrics, and "Desperation Made a Fool of Me" is a laid-back piano with stately piano and a wistful vocal from the ever graceful Stuart Murdoch. The disc also contains the very funny video for "Step Into My Office, Baby" as a bonus. Belle & Sebastian have always released very high-quality singles and this is no exception.
