"You Sound Like Louis Burdett" is the lead single by The Whitlams from their 3rd album, Eternal Nightcap. It was released on January 11, 1997[1] and did not chart. It was included on The Whitlams compilation album, Truth, Beauty and a Picture of You. The single was placed at number 53 of Triple J's Hottest 100 of that year.

Louis Burdett is an eccentric inner-west Sydney personality.[2] Tim Freedman once shared a cottage in Tempe with Burdett, who is described on the Whitlams' official site as "an underemployed avant-garde musician." The song's narrator repeatedly scolds himself for sounding like Louis Burdett.
