Note....these are all GREAT suggestions, but none are it so far.

I feel like I'm getting close though.

I just recalled the melody on either side of the "love me, love me, love me" part. The love me part is at the end of a a verse about midway though the song.

Undercover Angel

ETA - I can just hear good ol' Casey Kasem saying...."and for the 26th week on Billboard's Top 40 charts, and the 3rd week in a row at #1, this week's American Top 40 hit is...."Undercover Angel" by Alan O'Day!"...as the intro played underneath his voice. Man, what a memory!

O'Day would never chart again, making him a "one hit wonder". Following it's release in early 1977, the song shot to #1 on the US charts and enjoyed over half a year on the charts.

Ok, contextual question, where were you when you heard it, what year was it?


Reading your question a little more carefully... (I initially thought you asked when I heard it last, which is what my initial response was)

Where was I when I first heard it?

Well, believe it or not, I was actually an on-air personality as a disc jockey for a Top 40 hits radio station.

The year must have been early 1978. Thinking back now, it might have been one of the very first songs I ever played! I remember now why I liked the song too. It was a very 'radio friendly' song, and it had a good intro with a beat you didn't have to have too loud under your voice to figure the song out. Those were the days of talking intros to songs, where the DJ voiced over the top of the introduction to the song, usually saying something about the song. The intro was 0:15...just enough time to say something quick and snappy and not sound too stupid for a rookie.

Talk about butterflies! The very first time you flipped that mic switch and the "On Air" light came on, and it was real this time! Oh man! You'd usually throw the mic switch about 15-20 seconds before the previous song ended. This would trigger the "On Air" light which would make everyone else in the studio stop making noise, and the studio would go completely quiet. All the studio monitors would shut off and it would be complete silence. Only the DJ could hear what was going over the air in his headset. Then, as the previous song ended you'd "pot up" the mic (i.e. turn up the sensitivity basically so it was 'hot'). In the studio, the only thing you'd hear would be the DJ's voice, and nothing else.

Then as soon as the DJ said his piece he'd turn the mic back down, and throw the mic switch to the "off" position. (you did it in this order so you couldn't hear the switch click over the air). Then the "On Air" light in the studio would go off, and the monitors (speakers) would come back on...and you'd be listening to what was playing over the air in the studio.

The first time you went through that whole sequence (for real), knowing there were 10's of thousands of people listening, and worrying about tripping over your tongue (or worse, choking), was akin to jumping out of an airplane the first time parachuting. It was an adrenaline rush to say the least!

You got used to it after a while, but the first time was pretty nerve racking...Program Directors, Producers, news people and assistants all looking through the studio windows betting on whether the rookie was gonna' choke. Standby jock in the backup studio next door sitting there ready to jump in if you did. I think I was probably shaking after the first live shot...no turning back then! Then everyone went back to what they were doing. You were on your own.

I knew there was a reason I remembered these lyrics out of the blue like that. Now I know what it was.

It was a real pop up in the song....ba dah bah da bah, LOVE me Love me love me...badah bah da bah.

I know we'll all go "OH YEAH...THAT SONG!!!!" when we figure this out!


If you have a device that you can install it onto, might be worth downloading the shazam app, you can then sing or whistle what you can remember of it and it will try and do a match.

Responding on page one, apologies if someone has suggested this.

I asked because there has been a slew of newer music that sounds dated.

Would have never found that song you were looking for, ha!

I’ve never heard of Finbar Saunders ? ( I’m a old fart )

One of the reasons I like it is because of the lead banjo.

It’s not even the type of music I like, it’s to close to disco . But for me there’s just something about that one particular song . My taste is more in line with Willie Nelson or of the traveling Wilburys .

I run into a lot of people that say they don’t like it until it starts playing . Then involuntary peoples heads bob and their toes twitch. Lol

But to each his own .

Preacher gave a good portrayal of my feelings on the matter. Take a gander it’s kind of funny .
