We have 'Now 73' and it has 'Candy' on it whihc i think is wonderful (much to dc's disgust!).
Tesco have a good offer on his cd 'sunny side up' whihc inculdes this track. I've never heard any of his other stuf, would youi sauy that 'Candy' is typical or is it a one off and is his usual stuff different?
Thanks

no idea but he is very nice to look at.

GentleOtter Thu 03-Sep-09 08:13:23

Agree with fishie. Worth buying the CD for the picture inside. What a beautiful man.
He sometimes sings like an old man with no teeth but it is part of the charm.

If only he would sing in his normal voice and not put on a drunk old man voice!

I always think the test for these folk who americanise their voice would be to sing happy birthday to a 5 year old. THAT would be their normal voice!

I defy anyone to listen to "New Shoes" and not feel happy!

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Thu 03-Sep-09 08:24:40

i love him buy his first cd.

agree new shoes is a v. happy song.

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Thu 03-Sep-09 08:25:07

i would like to hear the proclaimers singing happy birthday to a 5 year old.

GentleOtter Thu 03-Sep-09 08:26:56

or Johnny Rotten grin

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Thu 03-Sep-09 08:29:53

oh can i nick this concept for a new thread?

Why HAS he changed his voice like that? I like Candy too, but there was nothing wrong with his 'real' voice?! It sounds pretentious, like he's trying to be Dylan or something.

Every track on Sunny Side Up is different. But a real, feel-good listen.

I would agree - every track is different. I wouldn't say that either of the singles from the ablum are typical though. Can you have a listen to some of them on Youtube first?

I really like it but I would agree he does sound more Scottish now than he did on the first album.

I was listening to his 'Tracks of my Years' on Ken Bruce last week (I know, I know but I am old) and it was very clear where his influences come from. Not stuff I have ever heard of before like old, obscure reggae and soul tracks but he does sound like he is copying them on the Sunny Side Up album

hmm, thanks folks. I think i'll risk it!

I saw the name and swooned my way in grin

Both his albums are fab IMHO! These Streets is very different from Sunny Side Up and Sunny Side Up is an album of two halves. His voice is amazing, there are some tracks that remind me of Bob Dylan and some that remind me of Otis Redding.

I highly recommend them both grin

He's touring too.

I think I might sell a kidney if I could have an afternoon under a duvet with this boy man. My secret passion. Not so secret grin

watch the video for Coming Up Easy It will give you no end of smiles grin

So handsome.

i love paolo nutini.
i like that you can hear his scottish accent.

said Sat 05-Sep-09 18:26:59

I wish he'd stand up when he sings though and desist with the bending-over-eyes-closed silliness.

seb1 Sat 05-Sep-09 18:28:03

His family have a great fish and chip shop, thought I would add that in, not that it is particularly relevent grin

frumpygrumpylovesPaolo Sat 05-Sep-09 18:35:42

seb, that bit is most important grin I'd never marry him without it grin
