  1. The later versions by Helen Shapiro and Millie Foster actually fall into a fourth category on MusicMaster Oldies. They're "Answer Songs" because they take the original song and change the lyrics to the girl's perspective. It's a subtle change, too. "Can't he see you're still in my arms," becomes, "Can't he see I'm still in your arms." Cool, eh?
