She's a critically well-respected singer-songwriter who almost had a hit in the mid-1990s with a song called I Should Have Known.



She specialises in somewhat depressive songs about relationships. Mostly she flies beneath the commercial radar but has had her songs featured in movie soundtracks and made a guest appearance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

She is also very very very insanely tall.

Apart from I Should Have Known, probably her other best known song is Humpty Dumpty, which got a lot of airplay at the time.

I would say that, if singers were football managers, she'd be Arsene Wenger. :yes:

So she wears an ankle-length puffa coat, has a face like a chagrined tortoise and writes songs about how she never saw the incident where her star player elbowed the other teams goalkeeper's jaw off and how none of anything was her fault? :dunno:

She also writes songs about the 1939 New York World's Fair. :excited:



You don't get many people who write songs about the 1939 New York's World Fair. :box:

No of course 50 years is how long he's been in the music industry for. :yes:

I heard an unfamiliar 1970s-sounding song on the radio earlier and after a while thought that the voice sounded a bit like a ropey Marti Pellow, despite it obviously being a 1970s disco-era song.

Then it finished. "And that was the new single by Marti Pellow". :llama:

TLC have a new single out - their first in 15 years! :gasp:

Left Eye seems to have been replaced with Snoop Dogg doing the rapping. How does HE put the 'L' in TLC?! :rant:
