I’m looking for a song from the 80s. My sister and I had it on a tape we made from a radio braodcast sometime in the early 1980s, probably the summer of 1981 or 1982.
I know next to nothing about the song, but here is what I do know:
The song, or at least the refrain part, was sung by a woman in an operatic, melodramatic style. It seemed like a sad song, but I was only 12 or so at the time, so who knows how well I understood it?
It was a fairly slow song, with some synthesizer or similar instrument doing the drum parts. I highly doubt it would have been considered New Wave.
These are the words I remember, from the refrain (though I am known for my mondegreens, so…)
I always think of you
Gone now, and forever
Oh, let the music play.”
I am pretty certain it was not done by Linda Rondstadt, Melissa Manchester, Lou Gramm, or ELO (though I could be wrong about the last). I’ve been able to listen to snippets of those on http://www.cdnow.com , and they don’t sound right.
In any case, I am looking to get my hands on the song for a project I am working on, but need to know who did it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
