What was this song? 80s or early 90s, female singer. Mainstream pop.
OK, finally a song identification that's not for some obscure song. This one is totally mainstream, like, I hear it in supermarkets and when holding for customer service on the phone.
It sounds like it's from the 80s or early 90s with a female singer. It has a Janet Jackson-esque production sound, very heavy on the synthesized drums and other totally synthesized instrumentals. Sort of Amy Grant sounding too. The beat is a shuffle, like "My Baby Takes The Morning Train." or a slower version of "Lido Shuffle" just to name two other well known songs with shuffle beats.
I can't remember any specific lyrics other than part of the chorus which sounds like "Oooh oooh, baby I love you." Yeah I know how generic those lyrics are...but I actually don't think those are it, since a search did not bring up the song I'm thinking of. At any rate it's something that rhymes with "oooh, oooh" and then "baby, I..." and then two more syllables.
If I could just play the melody that goes with those lyrics (which are probably all wrong) you would recognize it quickly. It's a totally cloying, mainstream corporate '80s pop song that most people would probably change the radio station to avoid.
