Have you ever wanted to download one of your favorite old songs and you couldn’t remember the title? Fortunately, you could Google some of the lyrics and the song would come up and you could add it to your ipod. But…what if the song is an instrumental? I am at wit’s end…
For the past week I have accosted everyone I know and hummed the bouncy swing lyrics of a song I loved in the 70’s to no avail. The common response I get is, “I know that song! It’s, ‘In the Mood.’” No, it is not.
It is just close enough to be, “In the Mood,” without being, “In the Mood.” This is maddening.
Maybe you can help me?
Here is the tune…”DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DAT DA, DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DAT DA…(change chords here) DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DAT DA, DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DATTA DAT DA…any ideas? Bueller? Bueller?
It had a drum beat after one of the DA’S. Now, do you know it?
I have never taken medication for anything up to this point in my life but I’m VERY close here…
I love this song. It is upbeat, fun, inspiriing, celebratory and most of all….elusive.
I remember it in the late 70’s. I even have it on a cassette tape but the quality is tired and old. I need to refresh it. It will be the lead song on my new CD along with, “Norman” “Please Don’t Talk to the Lifeguard,” “Born to be Wild!” and, “Percolator.”
With all the problems in the world, they seem to pale in comparison to my quest for a song that will revitalize my existence. I know it is out there…taunting me.
You know what I am feeling. You have been there, too.
