    Long a favoiurite Scottish songwriter and performer. Edwyn Collins is witty, funny and writes great tunes. Seen him live many times over the years since the first time when he was fronting his band Orange Juice back in 1980. He started releasing solo albums after OJ split and they are solidly crafted records of beauty. This video really makes me smile!

    And this is just class.

    • Is that not a dead mans tune?? If you know what i mean A David Bowie Tune???

      • Never Met A Girl Like You (Letra/Lyrics)
        I`ve never known a girl like you before
        now just like in a song from days of yore
        here you come a-knocking, knocking on my door
        well i’ve never met a girl like you before
        (guitar solo)
        You give me just a taste so i want more
        now my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
        ’cause now you got me crawling, crawling on the floor
        and i`ve never known a girl like you before
        (guitar solo)
        You made me acknowledge the devil in me
        i hope to god i’m talking metaphorically
        hope that i’m talking alegorically
        know that i’m talking about the way i feel
        and i`ve never known a girl like you before
        Never, never, never, never
        never known a girl like you before
        (guitar solo)
        This old town’s changed so much
        don’t feel like i belong
        too many protest singers
        not enough protest songs
        and now you’ve come along
        yes you’ve come along
        and i’ve never met a girl like you before
        Never Met A Girl Like You
        By **David Bowie**

      • No. It is an Edwyn Collins song. https://www.discogs.com/Edwyn-Collins-Gorgeous-George/release/378795 All that moosefucking has made you become confused over on your side of the planet and using a strange foreign language site which does not speak English.

        • @LordWankdust
          Thanks for correcting me brother as i always heard the David Bowie version. But This Guy Edwyn Collins (although i have never heard of him) until you posted his video is really cool man, as i like his comedic style, and he does have a good voice ta boot.
          Thanks for uploading-it, as i will look more into his stuff. And furthermore i can see why you like the dude brother. 🙂

          • Please show me a link to the David Bowie version of “A Girl Like You” that you know so well.

            • I Must be lying again right???
              The Edwyn Collins Version IS A COVER! ***A Cover***

              Pop Music. David Bowie lyrics I never knew a girl like you before? Wiki User It’s not a Bowie song or recording though it admittedly sounds like him.*** The Edwyn Collins version is a cover.*** He does a great imitation of David Bowie though. No, they made a comic book, ‘Return to Labyrinth’ but never made a film from it.

            • And here is a few more to add to the confusion, lol. 😉
              @LordWankdust

              I Never heard of Edwyn Collins before yesterday, but remember the Song A Girl Like You which was The David Bowie Song That He Covered So well. And because he sounds a lot like Bowie i think that this is where all the confusion came from.

              I Am Confused as to why Karm, does-it not say that The Edwyn Collins version is a Cover Then?? And His Absolute Beginners L.P. ??? also states that it was Written/ Produced by David Bowie? Sung by David Bowie.

              http://www.last.fm/…/_/Never+Met+A+Girl+Like+You+Before
              Iggy Pop (born James Newell Osterberg, Jr.; *(April 21, 1947)* is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Though widely known as an innovator and “godfather” of punk rock , Pop’s music has encompassed a number of styles over the years, including pop, hard rock, jazz and blues.

              Now,,, If ya read the second part of the comment (Right Below Karm) you will see why the confusion exists,, it’s really weird.

              “A Girl like You” was written and recorded by Edwyn Collins in 1994. Hmmm. Actually, David Bowie wrote this song (apparently with Iggy Pop) and recorded it on his Absolute Beginners LP.

              Very Strange And Confusing No Karm??? Cause I D’ont know W.T.F. Is Going-On, lol. 😉

            • No one is confused but you Andre
              There is nothing strange going on.
              I will try to explain. Lisa was right wasnt she? When you searched, you typed “Never met a girl like you before by david bowie” into the textbox of your search engine [google,bing, yahoo etc], and searched THAT statement. You DID didnt you?
              Andre, if you type an incorrect statement into a search engine…. the results that are presented are sites that also repeat or agree with you incorrect statement. THAT is why you got your awnings and answers sites/pages as top results… because on those sites/pages, in some similar form to the INCORRECT statement you searched.
              Is this how you research Andre? you just type in your opinion/belief, open the first couple of sites that show as top results, and hold up the inaccuracies written on these pages as ***100%mega proof***?
              It would explain a lot.
              But fuck, you know all this anyway.
              People arent stupid @thedre. Only narcissists think that.
              Its funny that you zoom in on this throw-away subject, write huge comments with many links and try to steer the narrative in this way.
              Another person might think that you are diverting from a comment that I wrote below, in fact your huge comments with video links are one of your standard ways to do this… bury the true issues.
              Its been established now that Edwyn Collins wrote and performed the song, so no need to discus this further.
              The comment, and issues i refer to are below, and asks some MUCH more important questions regarding the lying about, and trolling of @illegalsmile55 that you have been doing for a good
              amount of time now.
              Im expecting no answers or even acknowledgements from you regarding this… i just want you to know that those questions are not forgotten. No matter how much to attempt to divert from them
              begs retards
              Karmen

          • *shakes head in disbelief at total ignorance* He doesn’t know how to read…too much moose spunk.

    • Agreed. This song is velvet and rose petals . I always thought it was by the Psychedelic Furs as I never heard who actually sang it!

      • Since you’s think that i am lying again,,, HERE.

        Fuck-Man,,, Agreed! lol.

        • You should really try harder to get your truth about song writers from the internet on more reliable sources than a site that’s called “commercial awnings”, or possibly worse, “Wiki”. You literally cut and pasted the exact WRONG answer that someone dumber than you wrote!! You do know that wiki is not reliable at all. I guess you spend all your time on youtube FE videos to know actual “truths”. You just keep putting your big foot in your mouth. Your superiority on the subject is laughable, unfortunately, you’re once again wrong. Now where’s that apology that you always give when proven wrong? Andre, sometimes it’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

        • “A girl like you” was WRITTEN and recorded by Edwyn Collins. I believe it was his first single after his split with “Orange Juice”. The song was from Collins album “Gorgeous George”
          If you look after the lyrics on this link, you will see “Writer/s: Edwyn Stephen Collins”
          https://www.songfacts.com/lyrics/edwyn-collins/a-girl-like-you
          And just to further assure you Andre, here is an alphabetical list of ALL songs recorded by Bowie… “a girl like you” is nowhere to be seen…that is because bowie never even RECORDED a version of the song, let alone wrote it.
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_songs_recorded_by_David_Bowie
          Edwyn Collins WROTE the song. It is not “****A COVER****”
          So, @thedre , i assume we can be expecting an apology [as you always SAY you do]? While you are at it… now the site glitches have settled, you could also apologise to lisa for your lying, by accusing her of contacting Mark, and getting your precious friends reduced from thousand odd to 9?
          And maybe at the same time, you could explain to us about your lie last year. You know, “the plasma attack”… when you posted video after video, scaremongering, threatening of a plasma attack….you told people to get six months supplys, and hide in their basements…. you also contacted many female members and invited them to your home to be “safe” from the plasma attack. Funny, many asked when it would be and you avoided the question for a while until too many asked, and you HAD to reply. You said the attack would happen on 21st dec 2019.
          Ive never seen one of you famous apologies for this? this lie?
          What about people who hid and may still be hiding in their basements? what do you have to say to them? Imagine that the females you invited to your home HAD come, terrified of the plasma attack? What would you say to them now Mr “big heart”?

          Andre, i will leave you with a quote by you, outlining your VERY OWN thoughts on liars.

          “TheDre:
          Simply Lie, SIMPLY slid away from The Truth like A cowardly snake with a Forked Tongue in the night, or like Satan when shown A Cross. LIARS ARE EVIL BREED OF SUBHUMAN-SCUM ”

          • EDIT
            …your precious friends reduced from 9 thousand odd to 9?….

          • He’s busy right now trying to find a cover of Bowie singing this song….he’ll be awhile! He argues just like the flerfers do, by linking page after page that has nothing to do with nothing.
            BTW, I had Mark reinstate Dre’s ‘friends” so all is well in Best Gore-land. PHEW!!

            • Well, let me save him the time.
              This is the cassette tape insert from the cassette single
              'a girl like you' tape inset
              Note the part at the bottom @thedre, “Written and produced by Edwyn Collins”
              You see Andre, unlike you, i do my own research to present facts… and use credible and unarguable evidence.

            • @illegalsmile55 You’re so powerful, Lisa!
              I used to love this song and then I think it was used in an advert for hair dye or shampoo or some shit and now I just think of that when I hear it 😩😩

            • *blushes*
              It angers me when that happens with a song I like. How dare those artists sell their music to Chevrolet or Michelob. It’s even happened in a few movies, RUINED it for me.

              *shuffles feet* Will you be my friend? 😛
              @lady-lexis

            • @illegalsmile55 I guess I’ll be your friend, it’ll be some small consolation since I can’t be friends with the most, popular, helpful and smartest guy here. I’m too intimidated to request his friendship 😔😔

          • @karmen40 It wasn’t Edwyn’s first single after the OJ split. That belongs to “Pale Blue Eyes” (the Velvet Undergound song) with Paul Quinn. Then there was “My Beloved Girl”, “Don’t Shilly Shally”, “Fifty Shades of Blue” then “Coffee Table Song”. But “A Girl Like You” was his first hit (and he aint had many hits!) and set him up for life basically. Poor guy then suffered a series of catastrophic strokes which nearly killed him. He pulled through, got better, recorded again and moved his studio up to Helmsdale in the North East of Scotland where bands come from far and wide to record and have Edwyn produce their albums and singles. The guy is a legend. He is a beautiful Nature Illustrator and a gifted visual artist. My favourite clip of Edwyn (and there are amany) is the really wonderful spoof take on an old Eurovision tune which he transformed into a total fucking joyous thing… I give “Ding-a-Dong” https://youtu.be/eCS1qG12lgA

            • @lord-wankdust really? thanks mate. I doesnt surprise me that i was wrong about it being his first single – what i should have said is that it is the song from Collins that was most familiar to me.
              As i was looking this stuff up,.. i found many mentions of his health conditions. You sound like a real fan pal. I must admit, i know nothing of his illustration and visual art career. But this discussion has certainly peaked my interest

    • Why would you expect any of us to be nice to you?! You’re a fucking asshole to us whenever it suits you but you sure don’t like getting it back, do you? Why not just admit you’re WRONG instead of posting more links that are WRONG? Maybe, just maybe, then you would have to admit that not all internet links are right? Like your precious fart earth videos. Your memory problems are not related to a heart attack, it is related to your high consumption of opioids and benzos. You cant bullshit a bull shitter Andre. I’ve got your number buddy and I’m watching you very closely; you continue to post lies about me and I will haunt you like stink on a turd. You’re the turd, in case there’s any confusion, and knowing you, there will be plenty. Douche. Now you have a reason to be mad…bro.
