Ree-Ree, "there's a rose in Black and Spanish Harlem"

I once met this guy, we went to his place and were going thru his record collection and he had that 45. I said "Ooo! Aretha!" and he said "oh yeah, a friend of mine gave me that as a joke .. he knows I hate all that (n-word) music".

I left pretty quickly after that...

I've switched over to SmoothFM and here's that H&O version of "If I Can Dream About You".  Different lyrics to some of the verses?  Disappointing. No match for the original, which is one of the great pop singles of the '80s.

indeed, it was the Stubbsmeister. "Don't Walk Away", I'd never heard that one, another UK hit that didn't do much here (early '80s).
