Name That Other Tune

I've heard this pop song a couple times on the jukebox, full of bass guitar. The vocals sound like Steve Winwood and the chorus phrase I think I hear is "hearts on fire", but this song is nothing like Steve Winwood's Hearts On Fire. Hep meh?

What to do about a frog?

Whilst spring cleaning the large light well in front of my house (inner London UK) I came across a 2½ inch frog perched atop some leaf litter. I have no idea how long it has been there or how it got there but it looks healthy enough. I am a little concerned as to its future though. It is a barren environment with a concrete floor, an adjacent coal store, glazed brick on the head hight walls, a mesh covered drain, the aforementioned leaf litter and a few potted ferns. Should I leave it where it is and keep it damp over the summer or move it to the small but leafy back garden where he will have the neighbours cat to contend with?
