Edwyn Collins – A girl like you
This guy came up in conversation last night when I was at a buddy’s house for dinner. What an interesting (and prolific) life he has lead. I didn’t know he was the lead singer of 80’s favourites Orange Juice or that he had recovered from a stroke in 2005 and managed returned to performing.
More than anything though, this is a fantastic song. I first heard right about the time I was becoming conscious of music and it sounded like nothing I had ever heard before. It is dark and brooding and has a great retro sound. Also, what KILLER guitar?
You’ve made me acknowledge the devil in me. I hope to God I’m talkin’ metaphorically…
