Heard a song on the radio several years ago (around 2003-2005), and liked it,
but I didn't pay much attention as far as the name of the song and who played it.
I was sure, though, that it was Pretenders. Then, after a while, I though I’d love to have that song; the radio station had already finished playing it. I thought it’d be easy to find, since I “knew” whose song it was, and the period when it came out. Much to my surprise, as I rummaged thru the Pretenders’ catalog, I couldn’t find it. I can’t find it ever since. I had taken it for granted the song was by the Pretenders because of the distinctive voice of Chrissie Hynde, you know; hardly can it be confused. One of the thoughts was that, since I ñouldn’t find it among the Pretenders’ songs, maybe it might be on one of Chrissie Hynde’s solo efforts.
Bad luck again. Then, there is Aimee Mann who has a more or less similar voice. Same again – no that song...
Well, the only 'remnants' of the song that remained in my mind were a chorus
melody and a handful of words (which I also wasn't too sure of, because I had never
paid much attention to the words while the song had been played). So, the chorus words were
you-u-u, you see me cryin'...
you-u-u, you hear me cryin'...
/ ta-ta-ta-ta stand for some real words /
Mot much, huh
...pity I can’t sing and show the melody here – that might help better…
