It must have been a fairly obscure hit back then, because I've never heard it either, and I'm old enough to have heard it when it was out.

Gotta love the oh so creative title of the album: "The Carol Douglas Album". At least you know what you're getting, I guess.

And is it just me, or does she sing just a touch flat throughout the song?

And one more thing: The reason it wasn't a huge hit is quite simple. The chorus comes in at 1:02. That's 3 seconds too late. Any record mogul knows that if the chorus - or "hook" as they call it in "the biz" - comes any later than 0:59, the song sucks.
