"Ain't No Doubt" is a popular song by Jimmy Nail. Composed by Nail with Guy Pratt, Danny Schogger and Charlie Dore, the song features additional vocals by Sylvia Mason-James. Six years after his debut album, Nail revived his singing career during the success of his television drama series "Spender".

ingle release

The song was released as the lead single from his second album "Growing Up In Public" in 1992, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart two weeks after its release [ [ Chartwatch] ] and spending three weeks at the top. [ [ The Official UK Charts Company] ]

As well as the standard recording, three remixes were released: "Lies Remix", by Charles Pierre and Francis Usmar; "Damned Lies Remix", by The Sumitomo Brothers; and a version subtitled "Statistic Edit". [ [ Discogs] ]

ubject matter

The lyrics discuss a failing relationship, and the difference between her words and what he believes she means. In the first verse, like in the second, Jimmy Nail provides the females line, by saying; "She says 'it's not you, it's me'", a statement which is cliched in break-ups and is usually considered to be a white lie.

During the lyrics sung by Sylvia Mason-James in the first part of the chorus, phrases such as "I don't want nobody else, I love you", and "there won't be somebody else, and that's true", Jimmy Nail interjects with "she's lying". This line, like many others is simply spoken, not sung.

The second part of the chorus claims that there "Ain't no doubt" that a "woman like you is no good for me".

The second verse has Jimmy Nail speaking the lines of the female character once more; "she says 'it's like in the song, remember? If you love somebody, set them free?'" After he describes her speech, he says "and then she kisses me, and somewhere I hear a door slam. So I say 'fine', and just hope that I'm a better liar than she is," exploring the idea that while she lies in order to keep from hurting him, he does so in order to prove he doesn't care and possibly hurt her in return.
