Got this tune in my head, the chorus is just some "ah,ah,ah" or "oh,oh,oh" with some hums and maybe some lines after. Anyway there is a strong backbeat guitar going on in the whole song, and I think it was some kind of love song in a movie score in the 80/90'ths or something like that. (I may be wrong) Sounds a little like EWF or Kool & the Gang, with beautiful voices. Btw. its a very slick song, type of ballad.
I'm going nuts here, can someone help me identify it????

Nah, not this one, its no "ah aha ah" or "umm umm umm" in the chorus of that, and I believe there is a guy singing also (in the one Im trying to find). Thx anyway Micke!!!

//Staffay

The chorus reminds me of the chorus in Lennons "Woman", the chords are nearly identical......... and I think the song startts with just a synth a the backbeat guitar.... Im goin crazy here..... blink.gif unsure.gif sad.gif

laugh.gif No, its not.... If it was that (dreadful Celine "I wanna sing like Whitney & Mariah, but I just simply can't" Dion, I would have remember it since every kid that is supposed to sing have done it in the endings for the summer in school. (which in fact also have caused a lot of headache & pain during the last 7-8 years since my kids started school - I have to listen to these wanna-be singers at least twice a year, before the summer & christmas) mad.gif
Btw. I just hate this movie, it has the worst actors, the worst music and the worst possible tear-dripping story ever made in the history of Hollywood....

If it's from the eighties, that doesn't narrow it down..
Just a guess here - it's not the Glory Of Love by Peter Cetera is it? *groan* how do I even know this stuff *shakes head*

Jonas Brothers; Mbop uh ah uhah mbop



EDIT: If you dare to confess you listen to them laugh.gif

EDIT2: Speaking of Celine, could it be "Power of love"? Maybe all this talk about fat old girlfriends and keeping them in your garage (huh yes I belive you said that once) got you in the mood. biggrin.gif
