Title: Been driving me mad for years! Pleas help.
Post by: Tomo on June 17, 2014, 18:12:50 PM
Hi, trying to ID an early 80's obscure track i heard (back in the early 80's on the radio.) The song contained the words "one nine eight oh" (oh being zero) - the chorus went something like: "biblical numbers ---------- one nine eight oh" and then "blah blah blah numbers ---- one nine eight oh") (not a religious tune, reference to a calendar date.)  I can't remember the words for the blah blah blah bit.

Thanks for any help/suggestions, I've tried every search possible to no avail.

Again, thank for your time and effort :)

Thanks for having a stab at it Claybricks, but that's not it. It sounded in a style somewhere between the Jam and XTC and definitely (if I dind't mishear it, -doubts creeping in! i was just a kid at the time) contained the words "one nine eight."

Thanks again.

Not Europe, but the CC Mann looks very promising. Now to hunt a clip and find out! I much appreciate your time and effort Dan. Thanks :)

Looks like a pretty obscure record and expensive...
