Name that Tune

Recommended Posts

New tune

 

Any time of the year, don't you hear? 
Dressin' fine, makin' time
We breeze up and down the street
We get respect from the people we meet
They make way day or night

 

At a spot where the beat's really hot (Where we are bound)
If it's square, we ain't there
We make every minute count, yeah
Our share is always the biggest amount
Other guys imitate us
But the original's still the greatest

New tune

Any time of the year, don't you hear? (Havin' a ball)
Dressin' fine, makin' time
We breeze up and down the street
We get respect from the people we meet
They make way day or night
They know the in crowd is out of sight

At a spot where the beat's really hot (Where we are bound)
If it's square, we ain't there
We make every minute count, yeah
Our share is always the biggest amount
Other guys imitate us
But the original's still the greatest

Yeah, yeah

Got our own way of walkin'
We got our own way of talkin', yeah

Any time of the year, don't you hear?
Spendin' cash; talkin' trash.
I'll show you a real good time;
Come on with me and leave your troubles behind.
I don't care where you've been,
You ain't been no where 'til you been in - 
With

Song Title

Way to go George.  I'll give you the round.  It was The In Crowd originally done by Dobie Gray.  He was probably best known for the song Drift Away.  The Mama's and the Papa's recorded in also in 65'.

He came on a summer's day
Bringin' gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home

When I'm out walkin' I strut my stuff, man, I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite, I just might stop to check you out
When I'm out walkin' I strut my stuff, man, I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite, I just might stop to check you out

Body and beats, I stain my sheets, I don't even know why
My girlfriend, she's at the end, she is starting to cry
When I'm out walkin' I strut my stuff, man, I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite, I just might stop to check you out


Let me go on, big hands, I know you're the one

That was it.  I had just remembered of my post after some of those lyrics came into my mind.   I suppose the ? means you can't think of the band?  That's ok.  I kind of forgot myself.   ~Violent Femmes~ maybe.

 

You are up Bud.

There's that look in your eyes
I can read in your face
that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but girl you're only a child

Because it's not correct:

And I can dance with you honey, if you think it's funny,

[title] that you're out?

I honestly thought this would be easier...

 

You're so hot, teasing me So you're blue but I can't take a chance on a chick like you
That's something I couldn't do
There's that look in your eyes I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but girl you're only a child
Well I can dance with you honey, If you think it's funny
[Title] know that you're out
And I can chat with you baby, Flirt a little maybe
[Title] that you're out
Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That's no way to go
[Title]
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
[Title]
I can see what you want, but you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun
So maybe I'm not the one
Now you're so cute, I like your style, And I know what you mean when you give me a flash of that smile (smile)
But girl you're only a child
Well I can dance with you honey If you think it's funny
[Title] that you're out
And I can chat with you baby, flirt a little maybe
[Title] that you're out
Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That's no way to go
[Title]
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
[Title]

Depending on whether you heard the original or the more recently adapted version, the genders may be flipped. The title does not change though.

Then perhaps the lyrics are reminding me of some other song.

George

The rhyme-scheme keeps making me think the missing title should be the Beatles' "Your Mother Should Know."  However, I know enough of the song that I'm confident this is NOT it. I also don't think this is ANY Beatles song despite that.

It gets kind of confusing when you go back and forth between your monitor name and username Raf.  I thought you were another person and then realized that your not.  No idea where any of this has been going for almost 12 days now.
