I woke with this in my head this morning and I don't really know why, but I'm betting the old popclock is at work again and the day I found it in that Paignton junk shop was a wet one in late July.
We had the A side a good while back* and since this is a 45 you flip over and back again and over and back again, loving both songs equally and all the more because they're so contrasting, I think it's time the B made an appearance here, don't you?
You'll forgive me I'm sure that this Friday spin is a Philly ballad not a funk or disco tune, and you'll pardon the crackles too if I know you as well as I think I do because you'll be too busy lying back and diggin' Teddy to carp about such nonsense.
It's raining, so pour me a gin.
