a different kind of musical challenge.

“If you enjoy the view, it’s a mighty nice life.”

I’d love to say that I’m quoting a famous actor or entertainer with this quote, but truth be told, I was almost 100% sure that these were the lyrics from an R&B song I have not heard (and lyrics I obviously don’t remember) since 1983.

And that’s my new musical challenge….trying to find a 38-year-old obscure song of which I don’t remember the lyrics. For my friends who grew up with me in Woodstock – it was in a steady rotation on WDST in the mornings….yes, the odds are snowball-in-Hell, but I’m determined to find this song if it kills me….I loved the bouncy groove of this song, and I especially loved the chorus. I remember that the singer sounded a little bit like Irene Cara, but I’ve gone through her entire album catalog with no luck.

I look forward to the reward of this musical quest.

I’m hopeful that someone is familiar with this song, and that my description is enough to match it up. The last time I was on a quest like this was 2003, when I was trying to find D Train’s “You’re The One For Me” (thank you Ken Wine, for helping me find that!), so I hope to have the same success.

Although I’m not losing sleep over this, I know that when I do find it, I’ll have an incredible nostalgic flashback when I listen to it for the very first time.

That’s what makes this challenge so enjoyable!

One thought on “a different kind of musical challenge.

  1. I know what you mean about finding a song you only half-remember… I asked every musician I met for 10 years until I got the title of “The Poor People Of Paris”… because all I could recall was the melody, and not even one lyric!! Good luck, Lane! 🎶
