Was this Man Tran track trying to borrow Bee Gees styles and failing?

Had the pleasure of seeing Elvis Costello at the Barbican a couple of years ago. He was a surprise guest at the end of a show about London based songs. Although, weirdly, he didn't sing 'I Don't Want To Go To Chelsea'.

Between that girl's breast and her waist.
Yep - described in a lot of dating manuals as "the sweet spot". If you look carefully on one Office series 2 ep - Tim had his hand there on Rachel at one point.

This has been my favourite song from them, way better than the more famous one.

Yes.

Even when I was a child I detested Chanson D'Amour.

I only discovered Walk In Love about five years ago and liked it almost straight away.

The first sight of the fag-end of punk here, I think. No recollection of this one at all.

Automatic Lover by The Vibrators.

Not quite as cryptic as Turning Japanese by The Vipers.

Not playing well either.

Rather 'meh'.

Yeh I discovered it in the last decade as well. Should have done better at the time, they could actually be a very good jazz vocal group.

Blimey, they're still going! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vibrators

I wonder if Kate Bush is still number one.

Is it me or is Automatic Lover reminiscent of Mary of the 4th form ?

Man Tran had 8 top 40 hits between 76-84 including 4 that made the top 20 including Chanson D'amour.
