The intro of this song is slightly like the beginning of Alcohol by the Special AKA.
The rest of the song reminds me of Terry circa I Drew A Lemmon

The vocal phrasing is very similar.
As well as Alcohol, that intro had shades of 'Well, Fancy That'.

Great share Harry - well at at least I only feel fat not flat : ) and I don't want to sleep with Brigitte Bardot - did you see what Joni Mitchell said about Bob Dylan (as Dylan is in this video)

- then after this there are all sorts of refutations.....

"Jessica Mitford and Maya Angelou - Right, Said Fred"

Chris Difford always reminds me of Bernard Cribbins - I could not have dreamed this version into existence.....

I'd never heard of the Angelou / Mitford duet before - (apparently they did it for a charity project 20 years ago) - it's kind of great.
Bernard Cribbons is a legend and still going strong. "Bernard Cribbons Sings the songs of Squeeze" would be a record I'd like to hear

Harry - I wasn't sure if the Angelou/Mitford was for real - so I'm glad you found the year it was around and why?
I couldn't ever share this here - as they have no idea who Bernard Cribbins is - or just how sentimental and poignant an entertainer he is to us....

If I find a Harry Potter wand I will make the Cribbins/Squeeze album happen Smile
