On Argentine singles, the B-side is listed as Confusion, but it's really Fullhouse.  I guess Fullhouse doesn't translate in the Argentine Spanish dialect?
The A-side is an edited version of Wow, although it's not labeled as such. On this and nearly all other Wow releases, the first :12 of synthesizer chords have been cut off. (Brazil and Canada used the full-length LP version.)
Kate says Wow is her attempt at writing a "spacey" Pink Floyd song -- but not surprisingly, no one recognized it as such!
