One That Got By Me

I owe forum participant Blue for alerting me to this utter obscurity from `66 or so: ... izCjvQp_yf
(This can also serve as a post-script to my reply below which, I now see, reads a little on the snotty side. It`s an oft-mentioned flaw of internet communication: vocal inflections are not included).

I think one of the reasons for the songs scarcity is that it was a UK only release from 1965.
Apart from Anita Harris, I don't know if anyone else ever recorded it ?

I'd love to be proved wrong.

Sounds like something that could have been on the Lost Horizon soundtrack maybe because of the cheesy lyrics. Also get a slight "everybodys out of town" vibe. I notice all Burts songs have dopplegangers.
