Subject: "Mystery" Song and Band Names?

Written By: WLIRFan on 05/26/10 at 9:41 am

I've grew up in NYC and have been a big fan of New Wave since the early 80's.
I have great memories from those times...

Listened to WLIR and have a lot of songs that I kept on cassette.
Eventually transfered them to CD then to mp3.

Some of the tirles and bands were known.
And I recently found out the names of some of my favorites..."Say You Will" by Blanket Of Secrecy, "Softcore" by Maurice and the Cliches, "Right Now" by Hilary Blake and "Sex Beat" by Sex Beat.

But there are still a few that are unknown.

Tried searching with some lyrics and listening to XMs 1st Wave.

Any other suggestions as to where I might be able to find out the name of these New Wave songs?

TIA-Chris

Here are 4 examples...

Male singer, long instrumental intro, then..."That's love that it is (TLTII)...when you come rushing into my arms. TLTII...when you come running out of the fire. I think I'm the only one, that's got an idea and I come running full of desire..."

Female singer...Right now, let me take you by the hand, Right now put your lips at my command. Right now, fly me off to lover's land..."

Male singer...Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.......I was walking on Broadway when I saw this incredible looking Swedish girl having a cappucino across the street from lincoln Center....her name was Lola..."

Female singer begins...Hey mister, hey mister. Hey mister, hey mister. Then male singer...I've got my world, why should I think about the rain falling..." Dominant lyric is "one step away from you".

What do you think?

This is "AEIOU (Sometimes Y)" by EBN-OZN.

I found it by Leon Jackson as well....

here are the lyrics.
Right now let me take you by the hand
Right now put your lips at my command
Right now fly me off to lover's land
Baby, don't you leave me at the post
Kiss me, you can feel it coast to coast
Right now baby, need your love the most
You have set my soul on fire
Only you can satisfy this great desire
Right now let the fool world break in two
Right now stars can tumble from the blue
Right now just as long as I'm with you
Right now it's the time and it's the place
Right now for a ride to outer space
Right now let me have that wild embrace
You have set my soul on fire
Only you can satisfy this great desire
One time let the wine of love flow free
Right now be the lover you can be
Right now come and give yourself to me

Great! I really appreciate the replies.

A few more for discovery...

Male singer... I won't bother asking you what you've done
But the rumours all point to something going on
See, the past is the past and I'm not gonna dwell
So I'll put it to you once, nver again.......S-W-E-A-R

Male singer...Was it really only yesterday
when you left in such a rush....
....I am on fire and it's the rainy season

Male singer...I'll give you love tonight, champagne and candlelight, black limosine
Just another party boy
and one more down the line
...how can love be so unkind.

Male singer...Give me light,
give me action
...flying through outer space
...Living on Video

Male singer...You came around the corner in your big, black car
and the light danced on your windscreen
...you slipped a smile that could have killed a cat
you should have run me down.

The song is "Swear" and I know it by Sheena Easton from 1984, but here's the original from Tim Scott:

Thanks members...great stuff....you have made my day.

I have a few more that i'll list another day.

But for now, I just orderd "One Step" in 12" vinyl from germany and soon the Blancmange CD. But buying some of these songs seems very difficult...does anyone know how to get Right Now, AEIOU, Swear, Rainy Season, Run Me Down and Party Boy.

Thanks again!...

Have you tried GEMM Music?  That's where I usually search for purchasing hard-to-find music.

Written By: WLIRFan on 05/27/10 at 11:53 am

Members...a few more challenges (?)...

Male singer-sounds like Billy Idol-(with female singers in middle of song)...Some people get high, with a little understanding
Some people get high, with a whole lot more
I don't know why you've got to be so undemanding
...I want more...and I need all the love I can get...

Male singer...Blind hope
Blind vision
Blind center(?), one center
Blind living and seeing
Blind hell, blind hell

Male singer...Take time to see the wonders of the world
To see the things you've only ever heard of
Dream life the way you think it ought to be

See the things you thought you'd never evr see

Subject: Re: "Mystery" Song and Band Names?

Written By: WLIRFan on 05/27/10 at 12:02 pm

continued...

male singer...I only knew you for a while
I never saw you smile til it was time to go away
....We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

Male singer (a very frantic song)...(I cannot make out clearly many of the opening lyrics)
The damage, the damage is done
The damage, the damage is done...yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah...woooo

A very complex song with an instumental intro, male telling a story...JoJo Sands was her name...take it away JoJo
Then an operatic female part
Then a female talking softly...should i run to him or run away...he's my man until I die
...Oh sweet butterfly, she's waiting

Male singer...Standing in the morning sun
Wonder how it may come(?)
...We can dance a thousand years
We can dance forever and ever

Thanks again everyone...

Well, I asked for some lyrics to help find the songs but I see everyone else has already solved them! lol


WLIRFan,

Before you buy those records, contact Vic Ferri.  He can save you a lot of money plus he can transfer the original music and album art to CD.  He charges only a modest fee.

HOW CRAZY!  I was just listening to some old mixed tapes that I taped from WLIR and the Higsons "Run Me Down" was on there!  That was just my favorite radio station growing up!

Many thank to everyone that figured out so many of these "long lost" (to me anyway) songs.
For me, the early 80s were a great time in my life...lots of fun, a great gf, WLIR and few responsibilities...

I am really surprised and thrilled that there are so many members that are knowledgeable and helpful New Wave fans.

Dan-thanks for the recommendation...i will contact Vic soon.
And Ladybug316...where did you grow up?...WLIR did not have a long reach.

Best wishes to all-Chris

A few more mystery songs to be listed soon...
