Scott Fitzgerald and Yvonne Keeley: If I had words

Well, half-Dutch in this case. Yvonne Keeley, sister of Patricia Paay and later a member of the Star Sisters, scored her only hit in this duet with the British singer Scott Fitzgerald. A haunting reggae-style tune, based on the main melody of the organ symphony by Saint-Saens, and one of the biggest one hit wonders of the decade. I always have problems with this song, first of all because I much prefer the Saint-Saens composition, and secondly because I can't stand the falsetto voice of Scott Fitzgerald.

Year: 1977
