Best. Dexys. Song. EVER
All 14 minutes. Up there with Because of You.
This Is What She's Like is peerless. Also it was a single, a totally unmarketable single that sank without trace after the successes of Too Rye Ay - I love people being obtuse in the music industry. There should be mroe people like this.

Prole's Dexy's Collection
along with other people incase MarlowX thinks we're noel coward and Dirk Bogarde or something. Or the two 'heroes' from Hitchcock's 1947 classic, 'Rope'
in The Servant?
but Rope is better - the fake manahatten sunset is the work of genius. and the one camera thingy
I like it better than Rope. But Rope is great too. As is the score.
Two words: Elmo Putney
Theme tune innit?
who's since moved onto bigger things. eg. Flash!
I still think My Beauty by Kevin Rowland is one of the best albums EVER made.From certain angles anyway.
Didn't Elmo work in the pub?
? It's all a very vague and distant memory.
yes. yes, we did but this is three albums and a lot of cocaine later.
Someone should write a book about this maverick lunatic.
Or have they and NO ONE TOLD ME
even Lolin tried to help in this quest- he's impossible to trace!
he was on 6music the other day, but sadly anyone can get on there so that's no indicator is it?
I've just gotten into the 3rd LP and can be found dancing like a loon to This Is What She's Like most evenings.
ad hoc arrangement. Timeless
i love the fiddle on it.
dexys are one of my favourite bands.
one of many highlights in the song and the coda is my fave coda EVER
just halfway through.
yet better than i'd remembered.
you can just see him in his aaron sweater advising on patience on Bill's side
if they did that conversation before they played it live? The reunion DVD is £4 in HMV I may buy it to see.
