Nail, Jimmy – Love Don’t Live Here Anymore

1980's music. Top Geordie crooner!

What gave this apparently large, course Geordie bloke the right to have a god voice, I am still yet to fathom.  However, he did.  I loved this song when it was released, w/e 27th April 1985 so I went out and bought it on 7th June.  However, I must admit that whenever it comes up on whichever 80’s compilation I’m listening to nowadays I do skip to the next track (I prefer 1992’s raucous sing-along Ain’t No Doubt).

The song is, as we all know, Miles Gregory’s composition and was a big seventies hit for Rose Royce – number 2 in 1978.  Jimmy’s version made it to number 3 in the UK Singles Chart and spent a total of 11 weeks in the chart.  The art work shows a brooding Jimmy in sepia tones as he walks in the park lamenting his lost love.  The b-side is the self penned Night for Day, can’t remember that I ever turned it over and played that side, but I might have, just once or twice.

Any road up, why don’t you take a moment to have a listen to the track:
