I'd say it's quite playful, could be an advert song. It's not very 80s sounding tbh, more like commercial rock. Big chorus and then at the end that "play on, play on, play oooon" thing.

Yeah :(

I just hope it doesn't end up being fuckin' Shania Twain or something like that

Close. It's definitely Kim Wilde's cover of You Keep Me Hangin' On. Hangin' on, hangin' ooon.

No (too soft) and no (too 80s). But we're on the way!

Fucking mad, just had absolute radio on in the bath and this song came on, was quite enjoying it then it got towards the end with the repetitive lyrics & I thought "holy shit this Barny's song!"

Barny, It's Fade To Grey by Visage.

For a moment I thought it could be Can The Can by Suzi Quatro but no, it is not.

Yeah it's pretty sad at this point. But I think it's Truck On by T-Rex. Marc Bolan can sound feminine.

NO! IT'S DEFINITELY A WOMAN. But thanks, tbh the bit where the title is repeated is not very different.

You don't really know how sad it is. Today I've browsed songs by Siouxie, Kate Bush and Patti Smith... The closest might be the verses of "People Have The Power" with that bit from T Rex after.

This song came on Baywatch the other day and even though I knew that it wasn't the song it made me think of your quest. Plus I'd not heard it in years and it ROCKS

Yeah, it's a good song and sounds quite like THE SONG. But it's not.

Fuck, I'd say it's Pretenders related. Not quite Blondie and rawer than Fleetwood Mac, which is the Pretenders innit?
