I was on a walk, my iPhone was on Shuffle, and here comes a song that at first I thought was Arctic Monkeys, but something wasn't quite right. It seemed a bit too laid back, not as punky and slightly more danceable. I pulled the phone from my pocket and read "Jamie T." I thought to myself "do I really have so much music on this thing that I don't even recognize a musician's name?" Well, the answer to that was "yes," however, I won't be forgetting this track any time soon. Read more and watch the video after the jump.
I love Jamie T.'s heavy accent and smooth and humorous lyrical delivery, and when it's topped off with a great dance riff it makes me wonder why this guy isn't a huge success.
Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do.
As it turns out the embed code for the video has been disabled so you will have to go over to YouTube to watch it.
I also like this acoustic version. I imagine it's how it must have sounded when he wrote it on his front porch.
