Thanks to the Empire Records soundtrack and some heavy airplay for the video, "Girl Like You" was one of the great songs of the Summer of 1995. Oh to be 16 again!
I am happy to write that Edwyn Collins is recovering from the stroke he suffered in 2005. Last September he released a new album Home Again [currently available as an import in the US] and received some good reviews.
