Help With Track - Sounds So Familiar?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been on here before, But I have just purchased a 45 purely

because it sounds so familiar.

I only have a tiny sample of the record, about the first 20 seconds

or so, and I am sure I have heard it before but can't think where and what it is?

Something in the back of my mind it telling me that is is the instrumental of some Northern

vocal track?

Has anyone any idea or am I going mental in my old age?

Hi Steve

Slowed down version of the Deadbeats - Who Do You Think You Are?

Is that what it is? I haven't knowingly heard that, and this sound so familiar to me.

Has anyone reviewed this before on here?

That's what it sounds like to me mate - i haven't the best ear, but they are so similar it's uncanny.

Sounds similar I must admit, but not convinced that it is the same, also they are written by different writers, if that is anything to go by? it's the horns at the end of the clip that ring a bell with me. Edited by Steve Luigi

Ah. Sorry, I'm not convinced it's the same thing either. Misunderstood your original post - I thought you were interested to know what it sounded like. Still, it is dead similar - mm, bit of a pun there!

:facepalm:

Thanks for the thread link Godzilla, but still doesn't give any tips on what it is, was, or whatever :-)

Thing is I have only heard the first 20 seconds of the track, I hope it doesn't break down into a C&W hoedown,

line dance monster after that LOL! :dash2: There are no clips of it anywhere!

I've found a full version on Youtube, not to bad actually> Worth what I paid anyway.

Would def' sound better with a vocal over it though!

Mm, the full thing sounds far more like a James Bond theme than the Deadbeats and or Yvonne Baker put together. :yes:

More Deadbeats than Yvonne Baker in my book though - before the Deadbeats probably in terms of Sir Dickies wigan context.

:thumbsup:

:hatsoff2: HI ALL I can't remember the vocal (thank GOD) But remember it being played at WIGAN + EASC by RS, I think he said it was ARTHER WRIGHT ORCH? *(CU) and yes it does sound like JOHN BARRY, Nice record would like a copy myself, :g: DAVE

Steve, read Godzilla's thread again, the entire discussion is about this record, it was a very minor cover up spin and I remember people describing it as the instrumental to Yvonne Baker. yeah right.

It's terrible.

I love how 'minor cover up' relates to the fact that this track is deemed nowt - for the record I think it's not worth knocking mate, thanks for posting.
