Can you talk about the best songs of the 1960’s and NOT include Dusty Springfield. She entered the Australian charts on ten occasions during the 1960’s and anyone of those songs could have been considered as a possible inclusion in, say, a Top 100 of the 1960’s.

Personally, I like this song more than any of the other Dusty songs – not sure why. Written by the songwriting machine that was Burt Bacharach and Hal David and eventually covered by Marcia Hines in the mid 1970’s.

Classic Bacharach and David. Classic Dusty. How can you go wrong?
