    Oooh, but "I Feel For You" is clearly Prince living out his Chaka fanaticism ON the original song, so there's something about Chaka playing an idea or mold of her as opposed to being herself.

    Also Luka denying the opportunity for the 3 way dance is truly heartbreaking, but he knows "Clouds" would be a runaway winner.

    The thing about ain't nobody, in London if not countrywide, is that it's part of the landscape in a way no other chaka khan song is. That song was played every single hour of the day on both heart and magic fm. Which is how this debate started.

    Heart and magic are, or at least were, in my day, the stations all builders listened to. So when I was working for builders I heard that song 8 times a day and it's the only one that didn't suffer for it. Everything else was marred to one degree or another, but ain't nobody always lifted my spirits. It's rousing. It's life affirming. Very few people in the UK would know clouds. Everyone would know ain't nobody.

    Whereas I Feel For You had a solid, and loved, presence in provincial discos and nightclubs for years and years, which is why everybody else loves it.

    They're about different stages of the love journey aren't they?

    I Feel For You is the heart-stopping excitement of falling in love. Ain't Nobody is about the steady joy of having somebody.

    "Ain't Nobody" a thousand times.

    "I Feel For You" is gimmicky and bitty - lots of good bits, admittedly. A period piece, though - trapped in its 80s moment. Charming for that reason, but...

    "Nobody" is eternal.

    This is a great Chaka deep cut

    "Ain't Nobody" is a tremendous, tremendous song, the biggest selling song in years. Some people say biggest seller ever."
