something that's been puzzling me...

Is the Edywn Collins song 'A Girl like you' a cover or was he the first to sing it? I really like it

Thanks! Smile

I'm pretty sure it's his song - at least I hope so, because it's played often and should be a nice little earner for him!

The only other thing I know about the song is that the video was directed by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants (my favourite band).

It's not a cover. Apparently it took a Belgian DJ to make it a hit, the latter hearing it whilst in London, liking it and deciding to play it back in Brussels, where it became big before it was finally released in Britain.

You're not the only one to like it, Julia. Smile
