Your Woman (4:19)

Cover of Women In Technology

From Women In Technology and 115 other releases

White Town is Jyoti Mishra, who sings and records dance music using synthesizers and samples. According to the Your Woman Songfacts, Mishra recorded this on an 8-track in his spare room in Derby and played it to his girlfriend, who encouraged him to do something with it. He could only afford to press 5 copies, and he sent one of them to the DJ Simon Mayo at Radio One, who started playing it. It became the most requested track of the week and as a consequence he landed a deal with EMI. It sold 165,000 copies the week it was released shooting to #1 despite his refusal to appear in a video or on British TV to promote it.

Your Woman was inspired by the song My Woman, which was written by ‘Al’ Bowlly, a popular singer in the United Kingdom during the 1930s. He made more than 1,000 recordings between 1927 and 1941.

Just tell me what you've got to say to me
I've been waiting for so long to hear the truth
It comes as no surprise at all you see
So cut the crap and tell me that we're through

    @GrantMcbriar - the song is being sung from the perspective of a woman who has been cheated on. But it's sung by a bloke...

    Huh.. it's been so long since I last heard this song on the radio. I could have sworn it was a woman singing this, and it wasn't so much electronica, it was something else. But that sample is unmistakable. Nostalgia is such an odd beast.

    the tune, the lyrics, pretty much everything is perfect in this song. it's universal, catchy, chilling, makes me feel good :) and helps to get rid of crap memories about some idiots i used to hang around with in the past. ''Well I guess what they say is true I could never spend my life with a man like you'' ;)) Thx for this song, Jyoti Mishra ;))
