White Town is Jyoti Mishra, who sings and records dance music using synthesizers and samples. This is by far his best-known song. This samples a song from the 1930s by British singer Al Bowlly called "My Woman." Mishra heard it on the Pennies From Heaven soundtrack. Mishra sings the song from a woman's perspective, making it a rare example of a hit record with a gender reversal. Al Bowlly's vocals was first recorded in November 1932, and they finally reached the top of the chart 64 years later as part of this song. No other UK #1 single has such a time gap before reaching the summit.
