I've been watching a lot of Wes Anderson movies so I've gotta go with Timi Yuro. can't you just see the Owen Brother of your choice opening a bottle of champagne graveside for a beauty with alabaster skin?

The Jones Girls - serviceable disco, but it ain't giving me no earthquakes, as Henry Kissinger once said
I remember reading a list of Morrissey's fave artists many many moons ago and Timi Yuro featured - first time I'd heard of her. I don't think I've heard anything since then - until now. It's making my feet spin, as I think Bobby Ball used to shout
Both of these are more about the production, arrangement and vocal performance than the serviceable songs. Much closer for me than the comments suggest, although I guess that shows how much more early r n'b is prized over late period disco. Personally I like B, but love A. A has a really great groove and the vocals drive the thing along with a really infectious energy.
A's a pretty standard disco track, really hard to get excited about, but it has some kind of energy about it. From hatz' comment I thought it was going to be Autechre or something. I know I won't remember anything about this the moment it stops.
And B is being hailed as the second coming, and has a label-still image, so there's no doubt about how disappointing it's going to be. Would be fine on The Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
Damp squibs to start off the final. I guess B is just about more acceptable.
