This is not going to be easy! grin I'm showing my age and will probably come across as a bit weird but here goes....

I used to listen to Terry Wogan on R2 on my way to work and he played this song almost every day for quite a while... Could have been any time 2000-2007 grin I've not heard it since but I loved it!

I have NO idea who sang it ... I don't know what it's called and I don't know any lines...

I'm not religious at all but It's got a 'Christian' message .all about God loving us etc. and how wonderful life was quite repetitive at times.

It was by someone well known and I remember thinking at the time that the person had been part of a group at one point. Even as far back as the '70s
They had other songs with a religious message too but not all of them did...

I thought it was Van Morrison, Aaron Neville, James Taylor but I don't know...

That's all I've got!

I don't stand a chance finding it do I?!

Little Drummer Boy?

No! I think it was a single around 200-2007.... I remember thinking at the time that this person hadn't been on the radio for years...

Is it ‘I don’t know much’ by Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt?

Wasn't That'll Do by Peter Gabriel was it?

Elodie2019 Fri 08-Nov-19 20:54:50

It's that kind of song!
I was sure it was Aaron Neville or Van M as they have done a few 'christian' songs but if it is them I can't find the song!!

Elderflower It wasn't as slow or gentle as the Peter G song!
It was quite upbeat!

I wish I knew more! grin

Elodie2019 Fri 08-Nov-19 21:11:58

Drink I think that's 'Your song' Elton J.
Everlasting Peri- Menopause has destroyed my brain! I said in my OP that I probably sound a bit weird.!! grin

Elodie2019 Fri 08-Nov-19 21:15:29

You know I used to HATE 'From a distance' when I was younger... I now blunt like a little baby when I hear it!

The song I'm thinking has a similar kind of message...
