    Suede's version is fucking wank. This is of course the definitive version of a spellbinding song. Graham Coxon did a great live cover of this on a John Peel session in 2004. Similarities with Wyatt's wonderful voice, same accent, always appearing to be on the cusp of cracking...not technically a great singer but who gives a fuck when its beauty is so fragile, so human and so moving.

    Man after Robert's voice nobody can pass... It leaves far behind mr Costello version ... not much people can make you forget the original... This is so amazing and yes that Voice is so Amazingly human... One of my 5 top voices of course.... I dive in it just for fun

    Plaintive fragility. Nice turn of phrase Owen, also agree with the Billy Bragg comment. "Instead of diving for dear life, we could be diving for pearls" And of course, this version isn't blighted by (the usually good) cheese-trumpet of Chet Baker

    this is one of the strangest songs i have ever heard disguised as a normal one... i am always dumbfounded when it comes on radio

    There's a wonderful plaintive fragility in Robert Wyatt's voice that is so haunting. Ranks with Billy Bragg's Between the Wars as one of the best anti-war songs.

    Mr Costello, who others have posited may be a bit of a musical chancer. Not sure myself but give me Robert any day

    Sublime, and better than the original with its almost-cheesy trumpet from Chet Baker. Not that I don't respect Elvis and Chet, but I love the humanity of Robert Wyatt, and that voice is wonderful

    borra_cuervo, who are you talking to? Ahhh, the internet; a plaform for people to shout at the world.

    You're welcome, dear shipbuilders, and sorry for that bombs that failed to explode... but hey, that wouldn't have happened if you had also built those nasty MK-17. Oh, and the ''Frogs'' did a hell of a good job with the Exocets (BTW, you should thank'em too): what a pity the ''Iron Lady'' and the Hollywood Star wouldn't let us ''Argies'' get more of them, that would've granted you work... And who would've cared about those far away islands, anyway?

    What a wonderful song-another classic from the pen of Elvis Costello.It was written around the time of the Falklands war,about the government only giving shipbuilders work to build war machines,that their own sons will be sent away in,not all of them to return.
