In this age of (legally!) downloadable music, I have found just about every obscure song I can recall from my entire life. Save one.
The singer was a girl/woman. The song was on a 45. I remember the house I lived in when I had the 45, but not the exact year. I will say that I believe I lived in this house from around '67 to maybe '69, give or take a year on either end.
The name of the song might have been Down By The Sea. It could’ve been on the A-side or the B-side, dunno. I can only remember some of the chorus, and only paraphrased at that, most likely. As follows:
Oh how I wish
(that) you were here with me
down by the sea
My very very vague recollection of how the singer sounded makes me think it might’ve been Ronnie Spector, but I don’t trust that memory.
Thanks in advance for any and all help rendered.
