About 10-12 years ago, I was in a Dollar Tree store when I heard a song (barely) playing on the intercom. I remembered the tune, but I did not know what the song was or who sang it. It reminded me a little of "True" by Spandau Ballet, but I knew that was not it.
I sort of forgot about the song and thought eventually that I had probably misremembered the exact tune and would not recognize it again. Then about six months ago, I heard it in Applebee's. Unfortunately, I was not in a position to listen carefully enough to find out more about it. But I realized that I would likely hear it again, and maybe in another few years I would finally be able to hear it so that I could identify it.
Then I heard it today on the radio coming home from work. I tried to memorize one line in order to look it up in Yahoo! at home.
"Now as the rain beats down."
Well, I found the song. "Walk Away Renee" by Left Banke (I'm pretty certain that the first time I was listening to the Four Tops cover).
That is all.
