A very distinctive song recorded by Kiki Dee in 1973. I was kind of reminded of it by a TV interview she did, though it's one of those songs you never really forget:

Dee - Amoureuse (Amazon)

Leave Right Now

World's Greatest Music writes...

continuing a theme of songwriters singing classic songs made famous by others, here's Eg White singing Leave Right Now, which was a huge hit for Will Young. I heard a demo of this before Will's version was released and it sounded wonderful, even though Will himself didn't want to record the song and delivered a very half-hearted vocal at the first attempt. I wonder whether he likes it now.

This Jane Siberry song from k.d. lang's excellent album 'Songs of the 49th Parallel' is truly amazing - one of those songs you can't hear too often.
