Robert Owens: "I'm In Love With My Sister" / "It's Too Late Now"
"I'm in love with my sister / she's in love with my friend / he's in love with another / where will all this end? / I just keep on loving her / I can never change her name. / You can't marry your sister / Who ever heard of such a thing?"
If that's not a hook, then I don't know what is. Sure, Robert Owens offers what is, I guess, a good explanation of how this is possible, but by that point, it's too late. Especially when he comes back later in the song with a can't miss line like "how do you tell your sister that you want her for your wife?"
Speaking of which, the B-side "It's Too Late Now" is okay, I guess, but with an A-side like this one, I rarely make it to the point where I turn the record over.
