Friday Nineties – Edwyn Collins – A Girl Like You

You know what I’ve never met?  A guy who sounds more like David Bowie than the dude that sings this song.  Seriously.  And sadly for him, he is the kind of guy who gets stuck in the realm of a MINIMUM of three hints to figure out who he is.  I am willing to bet most of you have NO IDEA who he is right now, or the song.  But once you hear it you might be talking to your pal or parole officer and try to remind them of the song and you will have to give at least three hints and may actually be forced to play the song to convince the other person you aren’t crazy.

You:  Remember that Edwyn Collins song?  I heard it the other day.

Larry Bird and Skeletor:  Who?

You:  (singing poorly) never met a girl like youuuuuu befoooooore

LB and S:  What?

You:  COME ON!  He sounds like David Bowie?  Remember?

LB and S:  …

You:  GAH!  COME HERE AND LISTEN!

See, you will all have to come back and I will just rake in the page views.  *starts to counts money*

Suckers!

Pals?

    I stopped reading at “David Bowie.” Ultimate putz. I’m sure it’s a great post – did I get the Google email?

      Stop using words I don’t know when describing movies I haven’t seen. Or have you never seen: COW FIGHT? Pfft. Florker.

        I’m sorry that you can’t appreciate a movie that doesn’t have Milla Jovovich in it.

        Happy? You made me lug out this big 17″ bitch and ok, maybe sounds a teensy weensy bit like Bowie but it’s a stretch. Yes, I remember this song. No, I had no farking idea who Edwyn Collins was. I was wasted through a lot of the 90’s. Sue me.

        And I like Bowie. I will totes fight you dude.

    By “sounds like David Bowie” did you mean “looks like Quentin Tarantino”?
