Sounding like Anita Garbo on helium crossed with Minnie Mouse, the lanky haired Argentine Norah belts out both sides in a very individual and total singular fashion. The Battle For My Love is built upon a frenetic tempo with squidgy Moog and sports a tremendously catchy tune. You’ve got to hand it to the song writers for recognising a good chorus when they wrote one and returning to it over and over like an infernal groundhog day leitmotiv. The backing vocals are a real hoot –check out the Hispanic waiter overtones which elevate the chorus into a curse that will engrain itself into your brain (Battle, it’s the battle, it’s the battle for your LOVE!); I bet you’ll be singing along and alone, when you least expect it...The B side is a more straight forward crunching Glam affair with its HEYs and is very similar to Bobbie McGee's Rock ‘n’ Roll People with a dose of Sparks, loud proud and vehemently on the Hell raising side. Bloody Norah!
