Ok, bit of a needle in a haystack but thought it was worth a shot. I just heard it being played in a shop and tried to memorise the lyrics but all I can remember is “table turning” or “turning tables”. Despite all my Spotify / Google searches I can’t find it - it keeps coming up with Adele - Turning’s definitely not that! Here’s all I can say about it:

* It sounds like a man with a high pitched Prince style voice (in fact it was in his style)
* It sounded recent
* It’s a sensual love song (not soppy, quite playful)

Sorry blush

Is it this, OP?

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 15:41:28

No, it wasn’t a sad song. And more high pitched. But thank you for trying smile

@MellowBird85 does it have a rap in between choruses? Could be turning tables by Mr Probz?

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 15:59:06

@br1anmay no not that either, too heavy. It was more playful.

Another sad love song by Khalid?

Anything by the weekend maybe?

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 16:25:10

@br1anmay I came across that one while I was searching myself but nope.

@Babysharksmom it certainly sounds like his voice.

Savage Love?

That's high pitched

PunishmentSnart Fri 25-Sep-20 16:51:56

Or this?

JunoJigglewick Fri 25-Sep-20 16:55:10

Tom Odell - concrete? I thought I knew what love was?

They are both high and remind me of Prince grin

Tables have turned?

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 17:20:15

No not those.

Is it an oldie?

Midnight Oil - Beds are burning

ThePissedOffWaitress Fri 25-Sep-20 17:52:22

Khalid - Another Sad Love Song?

ThePissedOffWaitress Fri 25-Sep-20 17:53:22

Oops, sorry, saw that's already been said! I heard it recently and it's been stuck in my head ever since so was excited to share blush

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 18:03:56

No not that @CuriousaboutSamphire.

I’m annoyed with myself for not being able to give more info 😑

Could it have been a Zayn song?

MaggieSansoni Fri 25-Sep-20 18:36:25

Is it Turntables by Janelle Monae?

Tiredmumno1 Fri 25-Sep-20 18:56:49

Could it be - "Tables Will Turn" by Todd Rundgren?

Tiredmumno1 Fri 25-Sep-20 19:05:12

Sorry just realised you said recent. Have you tried putting the lyrics into rhymezone and see if anything jogs your memory.

MellowBird85 Fri 25-Sep-20 19:49:52

Nope not those. @Tiredmumno1 I’ve tried so many lyric search engines 😩 I’m usually really good at digging for info on the internet.

I can only describe it as a similar style to Want to Want Me by Jason Derulo (not so much the chorus but the verses). Same pitch as his voice and recent sounding style of song.

James Bay? Can’t find any of his songs with lyrics relating to tables though

Tiredmumno1 Fri 25-Sep-20 21:59:54

Sorry I couldn't help more. Really hope you manage to figure it out 😊
