The interseting thing about this song concerning the chorus which sounds like it is being sung through a megaphone was acheived by phoning in from a public call box outside the studio; who needs high tech!
    Here is the original and definative version (OK not seventies I know), I love this song.

    Yes I know it's 'too disco'. It's just something quite obscure that I liked at the time, though I didn't actually know the original then. I quite liked Marc Almond's version too.

    I didn't intend to dis any ones taste I just meant it was too disco for my taste, if disco is any one's thing that is fine. Yes the Mark Almond version is very good also.
