    No, I am saying that the original version sounds too modern to be a 1960s hit - in other words, it sounded ahead of its time.

    However, as Richard and HG have both just reminded me, there was that Marc Almond cover version which didn't have that on - I couldn't quite remember who had that version of it.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Thinking about it, I am sure I saw the video for the song, probably on YouTube, where McWilliams goes into a phone box and sings the chorus.
