    I heard a song in a shop yesterday, and I really liked it but I don't know who it was by. I've tried searching google but it's useless. It was a male singer and it seemed to repeat the words 'glamour girls'.
    I'd be so grateful for any help.
    Thank you

    Is that the only clue love..did it sound old/new and what type of music?
    Only John Cooper Clark springs to mind but that's spoken word anyway.

    I listened to the John Copper Clark song, and it's not it because this sing basically repeated those words constantly.
    I remember thinking that the singer's voice reminded me of Richard Hawley a little, but the music was more 80s, kind of Roxy Music esque
    Failing anyone on here getting it, I'll try and ask the guy from the shop, it was a little independent one so maybe he will remember.

    There's a song called 'Glamour Girl' by Chicks on Speed, with guest vocals by Christopher Just.

    Thanks for all your help, and I will check out that Chicks on Speed song, Morning Star*

    * From the Communist paper?

    Yes from the Communist newspaper - the longest daily English language left-wing paper

    And Chicks on Speed are pretty awesome.
