i've never heard either track.
the only kiki dee i knew in the 70s was the single with elton (leave me alone. i was a hardcore elton junkie then.) i like this and i get it. she's got a wonderful voice, and i can handle that kinda emotional register. what's in the song fits with the song. but i don't love it. i am often accused in my own faves of being dated, which really doesn't bother me. i am a child of the 70s... my 70s, which rarely lines up with anyone else's, mwhaha. but this one does have a nagging sense of... datedness, even for me. holds it back. i wonder if my response would be stronger if i *had* heard it in the 70s.
B is sweeter. i love the way it moves.
(i also hafta say i love the juxtapositions in so many of these match-ups, so cheers for variety, pickers.)
