lol!
To be brutally honest, I really dont think I have ever even heard it, let alone who recorded it. I was kicking myself because I usually have an excellent memory for music. With pop music it gives up about 1977. That was when I stopped listening.

I think you will have heard it WW.

It has been recorded by other people, so I had to be specific with the date,

and the version I wanted was the most successful sales wise.

And yes, I like you stopped listening to ‘pop’ in the Seventies.
