i'll name that tune in one


you're oh so pretty oh so pretty so pretty and witty and oh hell just help a poor unfortunate out here and tell me what tortured soul sings this belter. please darlings i just gotta know who it is that just tears me up knowing that his ship just isn't coming in and his dreams still aren't going to be comin' true somehow and they never will. scott walker could almost convince me things were going to be different now but i just know that this poor dears schemes are going to end in tears just like they always do. and i'd keep hold of that shabby dress if i were you...

???? - my ship is comin' in

thankyou sweeties

The only non walker-brothers version I can find a mention of is the one by Walter Jackson, and I don't have that but I've downloaded a snippet of it from Amazon and I don't think it's quite the same. Maybe it's him but a different version?

That's Walter Jackson, that is.

I can't listen at work so I can't be sure what you've got here...Jimmy Radcliffe did it first, before The Walkers.

Great song.

Again it might be a different version but it doesn't sound like the Jimmy Radcliffe version that i have, again, found only a snippet of.

Matt Pimperl? There's a youtube video here -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXYhTe0NVao - but I can't make it work here at work, might be him. I'd like to think so, his name is so bloody great.

Actually I've found I can get through to youtube on iGoogle and I'm pretty sure it's him.

jeez how i wish it was matt pimperl but i don't think it is...

and what's shazam when it's at home?

i'm leaning towards jimmy radcliffe after digging out long after tonight is all over

shazam is where you ring the numbers down the middle of your phone 2580 play a minutes worth of recorded music and Shazam it texts you back the track artist etc. Works best for cd music it's the same system that recognizes stuff on itunes etc I believe, it cost 50p a time or summat.

Ok, I'm home now; it certainly sounds like Jimmy...but the only version of that I can lay my hands on is an alternate demo version or something that came out a couple of years ago. Sounds similar but....

That 'alternate' version of Jimmy's version is here:
