I've only heard the song twice in my life. The second time I managed to slam a cassette tape into a tape recorder, capturing the 2nd half of the song. That was thirty years ago. Haven't figured it out since.
Shazaming this won't work, nor will the Googling of any lyrics. I've been trying awhile. I tried to find it when Napster was brand new. I tracked down one of the old radio DJs that worked at the station this was recorded at. He didn't recognize it.
I digitized the original cassette recording and uploaded it to YouTube: http://youtu.be/aBgsukkN5W4
Reddit took an initial stab at it, and came up empty handed. Perhaps you'll fare better?
- This recording was made in 1984, but isn't necessarily the year of the song's release.
- I lived in Canada, specifically Parksville, BC, on Vancouver Island.
- International hits got a lot of playtime on Canadian radio, it could be a local (Vancouver) unknown band, or they could easily be from somewhere else.
- The radio station that played this was CKLG (LG73)
