Where's this from?

The opening bars are so familiar. It's some power pop song and the singer sort-of talks the lyrics like Mark Knofler form Dire Straits

There's a bit of hand clapping in it too.

For some reason it won't embed the video but it's Weller (to save Yomp the bother of clicking on it)

I think you might be thinking of Spanish Stroll.

It's a pretty poor track it has to be said.

I can see the Spanish Stroll bit but I think it's something else. The lyrics might go something like "Kid walks down the street.."

It's not My Best Friend's Girlfriend, but every time I hum it now to try and get a bit more, I keep drifting into the Cars song. :cry:
