He sings: “would you like a list of my dislikes?” which immediately made me think of “Sing Your Life”’s proclamations.Yes it is only a demo, and if it’s sound and potential were fully realized, regardless of hearing Sandie’s version with its horns, etc, then I think judgement placed on it would be much fairer. Though as it is, we unfortunately only have a demo, or to my ear, an unfinished production.
Interesting. I never thought of “I don’t mind ...” as a ‘Motown stomper’.
But “Please Help ..” does have a Motown/Charming Man pop sound and feel to it, that works for Sandie, taking into account her vocal delivery and background of 60’s pop.
Phil...Collins? PHIL COLLINS!? Bloody phil-istine! (I actually wrote the same thing as you wrote about the start, in an act of funny synchronicity, but looked above and saw you had written it)Start always reminds me of 'You Can't Hurry Love' - Phil Collins (1982).
I don't mind it at all. A jolly little number with good singalongability.
I love that he did something with one of his idols, & 60's icon, Sandie Shaw.
