    This great Northern Soul song is obscure enough that no lyrics are available online.
    I’m having trouble figuring out what he sings between :51-:58, and again at 1:23-1:30. I think it sounds like the same lyrics at both spots. The rest of the song was easy, but I got hung up on these two spots.
    Any help would be great.

    Fantastic NJD. I’m tied up right now and can’t check it, but that sounds pretty darn good! Sweet!

    Thanks for all of your responses thus far!

    You’re looking for someone to help you decipher hard-to-understand lyrics. That is exactly what the good people at misheard lyrics do. If they can make sense out of Eddie Vedder, I’m sure they can help you.

    51-57 seconds sounds very much like a melody in 'You know I'm no Good' by Amy Winehouse.

    "I have heard that do you just can't beat
    love is what is this xxx girl is gonna beat"

    Which I know makes no sense...


    Sorry, not much help

    Thanks!
    I posted another one on Friday evening, but it was hijacked by a troll who kept taunting me. The mods shut it down. Imagine that, a thread in Music To Your Ears getting deleted!
