Revisiting Winter Spring

Way back when - probably when I first joined the Voices forum - I said that one of things that struck me about Winter Spring was that several of the songs seemed to be 'paired' with songs from the 70s repertoire. (Since I wasn't on the list when Winter Spring came out I don't know if I'm just a re-hashing a well-worn thread from 2003 or not).
 
I liked this - given the history, given the record title.
 
So with the older songs currently front of mind thanks to Val Jennings' excellent work, I thought it might be worth making the connections explicit (I meant to link these, but have failed to crack the hyperlink instructions):
 
So Loud -> The Man Who Walked Towards The Music
Dancing Master -> The Flowers and the Wine (from regret to resignation)
Daughter of the Sun -> No Dice (actually I'm not sure about this, it's just an association that came to mind as I was listening)
An Empty Table -> Between Us There Is Nothing ('but the shadow of the future that will never let us go to be together)
Prayer Against The Hitman -> I See The Joker (kind of obviously...)
Thought of You -> Lady of a Day, maybe.

The tune of I Have To Learn always reminds me of one of Pete's earlier songs.
 
Would MVs care to suggest which one it might be?

I have long since thought that I Have to Learn is as close to a perfect pop song as you are likely to find

Though he had no great gifts of personality or mind, he was quite well respected.

Is it just me then, that can detect strains of (the original) BCWTOYTM in I Have To Learn?!
