In my opinion, this is a great song that stayed great in its many versions. It is hard for me not to take up for the Bay City Rollers, and I love the version by The Tourists, but, in the end, I had to give my vote to Dusty.

And quite right too...all other versions are pale imitations in comparison...

I have a spot in my heart for the song used in the infamous Samantha Fox 1-900 commercial.

It used to be that I was only familiar with the Bay City Rollers version...

...but ever since Paul^^ made me aware of Dusty's original, that's the one that's grown on me!  8)

This is a no-brainer, IMO.  Dusty Springfield.

Dusty Springfield's 1963 version is a classic, I love it to death. Maybe it's just because I've always had a soft spot for Dusty Springfield.

I've always been more partial to the Bay City Rollers version.

I am the only one to vote for the Tourists  :\'(

I thought this song fit Annie Lennox's voice like a glove :)
