The intro of this song is really familiar. DH says it's not, other than having a bit of an 80s vibe. I'm sure it's a sample or a copy of another song. Google is not helping. Can one of you?
Here it is.

It reminds me of the chorus of Eric Prydz Call On Me.

Reminds me of Bette Davis Eyes

I thought it was "She,s got Bette Davies Eyes" when I started listening to it (I think that was what is was called anyway)

Yellowbird54321 Tue 13-Mar-18 16:22:52

Ooops - Davis even!

Faze84 Tue 13-Mar-18 16:23:14

Sounds a bit like Kim Carnes, Bette Davis Eyes

CuriousaboutSamphire Tue 13-Mar-18 16:23:19

The music is definitely Kim Calnes - Betty Davis Eyes

Carnes smile

Jenala Tue 13-Mar-18 16:25:44

Aaaah it definitely sounds like that Kim Carnes song but that's not the song I'm thinking off.

I think it's the male sounding woahs at the beginning that sound like they're from something

PuppyMonkey Tue 13-Mar-18 16:25:57

Yep - Bette Davis Eyes rip off.

Jenala Tue 13-Mar-18 16:26:01

Thinking of*

Cross post.

The woah woah bits sounds a bit like Poker Face by Lady Gaga to me. grin

I have a picture in my head of a rock band in the 80s. Can't get it, but you're right, it's not Bette Davis Eyes. I'll have a think.
Sorry bit useless. My DH might know. He's good at this sort of thing.

CuriousaboutSamphire Tue 13-Mar-18 16:30:43

Oh yes... I am humming it, when I get some words I'll let you know!

It's one of those big "I wanna know what love is" type songs, I think

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Tue 13-Mar-18 16:31:24

Is it Turn Back The Clock by Johnny Hates Jazz?

CuriousaboutSamphire Tue 13-Mar-18 16:31:31

It's both I think... Betty Davis into .... argh, it's not coming...

DannyLaRuesBestFrock Tue 13-Mar-18 16:32:37

Deffo Bette Davis Eyes

Faez Tue 13-Mar-18 16:35:09

I know what song you mean but I can't think of it either!

Jenala Tue 13-Mar-18 16:36:58

Yes Elen some kind of rock/pop band I think and yes Curious I think it is a big song like that of some kind.

I'm almost able to hum it further than the intro

ShmooBooMoo Tue 13-Mar-18 16:37:06

Not read thread but opening bars...very like Bette Davis eyes by Kim Carnes

ElenOfTheWays Tue 13-Mar-18 16:38:08

We're good then? Lol

It's one of those big "I wanna know what love is" type songs, I think

Yes me too. It's driving me mad now grin

<Frantically starts rootling through back catalogue from teenage years>

CuriousaboutSamphire Tue 13-Mar-18 16:39:34

Bruce Hornsby and the Range - That's just the way it is

Way past the piano bit... I think!

It is a Bette David Eyes rip off, but the intro gives me a bit of this...

How many seconds in do you mean? It's a stretch but These Dreams by Heart? Or Lavender by Marillion, a lot slower though.
