Fran Why is a singer one of your favorites? (65* d) RE: Why is a singer one of your favorites? 23 Sep 04


My favourite singer is Gerry Colvin

He is so expressive when he sings and he really tells you the story, he sings 100% original songs and they are about everyday life and love and lost love in this time, he is a genius with words and sings about high rise flats, door to door market researchers, Penguin chocolate biscuits, dyson vacuum cleaners, the London Underground and old peoples homes.

Some of his songs are sad, some are just observations of real life situations but no-one could sing his songs with the same emotion and timing as he does here are a couple of verses from one of his songs, he sings this one unaccompanied and the full version is heartrending.

She turns to the man with the clipboard and says,
'put me down as a "don't know"
I don't know why my life has ended like this,
don't even know why God let me exist, to live with a man who just thinks with his fists, stares at the neighbours, fights with the kids, don't give a damn about anyone's views, and you want to know what detergent I use, go and ask somebody else.
Her home is a stain on the apron of London, they call it St Mary Crae, but if St Mary ever came around here she'd be mugged for her halo as passers by cheer, people who just keep themselves to them selves and woe betide anyone ask them for help they'd say go and ask somebody else.
