Getting stuck into a good Nick Cave ripsnorter like Brother, My Cup Is Empty is just so much fun.

I do Brian Ferry singing the "Land Of Hope And Glory" bit at the end of It Ain't Half Hot Mum.

I do a pretty good Bob Dylan. I do the old apartheid national anthem (the Afrikaans/English bit that follows the real anthem) in my Dylan voice.

The Dylan and the Ferry are pretty close together, really. Ferry was clearly 'doing Dylan' on "Virginia Plain", for starters.

Jerry Lee Lewis. Wavering between yelping, whispering and shouting with no real reason.

John Lydon, circa Metal Box.

"Drive to the forest in a Japanese caa-a-r"

The bloke out of Wilderness is great fun to do, too. I got some very odd looks walking down my road shouting "it's a post-plethoric rhetoric" with very pronounced letter os, once.

Can't believe Mark Morrison hasn't been mentioned. Just pinch your nostrils shut and you're away.

Agreed with SR, every Welsh person on this board and, indeed, everywhere does a Tom and an Elvis.

Can't believe nobody's mentioned Johnny Mathis, who must be the easiest to take off (and on a similar vein Roland Gift)

Oh yes, Roland Gift. He's really easy to do. I wouldn't recommend impersonating Mathis singing "Misty" though; that is a fucking tough one to sing.

Last night Dreamgirls was playing on TV while Mrs G and G-Teen were sitting around talking. That woman who won the Oscar was doing some overwrought soul number, which gave me the opportunity to launch into my Patti LaBelle in soul-emo mode. Alas, Dreamgirl's big note was more restrained than Patti; somewhere between Aretha and Whitney. But my Pati was spot-on.

The one I do is the one where he sings "Guess it's over, call it a day, sorry that it had to end this way", or occasionally the one where he sings "If I could I'd like to be the first man on the moon, there would be no neighbours, no population boom"

(The latter is particularly good, because even if people think the impression's crap they get a laugh off the lyrics.)

I have no idea what any of these are called, since the only songs I have ever heard JM singing are these 2 and Mary's Boy Child.

The first one's "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late" (a duet with Deneice Williams). Dunno about the other one.

Don't you mean "When A Child Is Born", not "Mary's Boy Child"?

Yes, I do.

And I think the "no neighbours" one might be called "Stone in love with you"
