looking for info on a song-need help!
« on: October 05, 2008, 03:20:58 PM »
ok..I was listening to a radio show this morning-The Blueseum of Fine Arts-and a song came on that I am embarassed to say I have never heard-I can't remember the title, but it had a late 60's/early 70's vibe-a British blues-ish electric guitar,some resonator, and even piano....there was a chorus that was something like"Its hard to get ahead when ...blahblahblah........"I thought it sounded like a young Joe c--ker, but the dj said it was the late John Paul...something??...he was talking way too fast and I almost ran off the road-a few minutes later my short term memory ran out of space and I can't even hum it!!!!help!!!

With so little information to go on your best bet is to call the radio station and check with their scheduling for the day and time you listened to the song to figure it out. However, it would seem an arduous task to learn a song you can't remember.

I have-its a syndicated national show...Chris Jagger is a host-waiting on reply...I swear it sounded like he called the artist John Paul Baudry , or something to that effect-dude sounded a lot like Joe c--ker..had an early 70's blues rock vibe..funny, thought I had heard all that is bluesrock70's style
