All the boys think she's a spy. Which reminds met that I never understood why the critics and Betty Davis herself all hated Kim Carnes's song. I don't know why; I think it stands up as pretty great pop.

You're right, Who, it was a catchy tune, and a gigantic hit back in the day.

Not surprised Bette Davis didn't like it, though -- by that point in her life, she didn't like anything. Or at least pretended not to. She dined out on the crotchety routine for years.
