I need help identifying a song

I heard a song on the radio this morning that I hadn't heard for years, but since it was used as bumper music they didn't identify the artist. I tried to call the station because it was really bugging me, not knowing the name of that song, but the number was busy and I didn't particularly feel like redialing numerous times. I felt I could take this problem to A2K and solve it here.

I can't give you any words for the song, the best I can do is to hum a few lines.

It goes like this...

Hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hmm -- hmm hm

hm hm hm hm hm -- hm hm -- hm, hm hm hm hm

Anyone? This is really bugging me.

Gus, I'm surprised you didn't recognize Frank Sinatra singing "New York, New York."

Sofie Tucker singing "Mama He's Making Eyes at Me". Trust me, I'm always right about this stuff.

So far, no one has identified that song. What the hell kind of site is this? Ask questions -- get answers. That's what they say, right?

I WANT ANSWERS!!!

I don't know how I got it wrong. It must have been the way you hmmmed it.

It's not Frank Sinatra after all but instead is the Sex Pistols doing "God Save the Queen" Maybe if you had slammed your head a little more when you hmmmed it, I would have got it the first time.

All I can tell you about the song is that it is somewhat mellow, along the lines of some of Phil Collins kind of crap, and that is was quite popular in its day. Also, the song had the word "talk" in it, leading me to believe this song was used as bumper music since this particular station deals mainly in talk radio.

This is perhaps A2K's greatest challenge. Whoever can correctly identify the song will win a baseball or football card of my choosing.

Phil Collins Long, Long Way to Go

http://www.mp3lyrics.org/DucU

While I sit here trying to think of things to say
Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I wanna see today

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can
Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere
And it would seem that we've still got a long long way to go
But I can't take it anymore

Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off it will go away

Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more
Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I wanna hear today

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

(If I win, I want something better than a stoopid sports trinket)

I have never even heard of Coldplay, but that, my friend, is the song. I knew I heard it somewhere along the line and it was bugging me because I couldn't quite place the singer.

Good job, Slap. Baseball card or football?

I'll take the baseball card, please.

And deliver it in a protective plastic sleeve, to keep out debris.

Here's the song and, might I add, these guys are a bit like The Monkees of modern day.

Any preference as to the team? Red Sox, I presume.

I'll dig around and see what I have. Oh, and I will need your address, which I will receive at a later date via pm, since I am sure you do not want the A2K women to know of your home address lest they beat a path to your door with funky sexual aids and accompanied by gyrating midgets.

I was just upstairs digging around and the first Red Sox card I uncovered was this one...

I actually considered, briefly, sending that card to Slappy, but then I figured the card is probably worth a couple hundred and that would be overpaying for having someone identify a Cold Play song.

I'll keep looking.

Yup, the Monkees are a good comparison.

Overpaying? I was thinking you had a Mickey Mantle rookie card? I guess Yaz would work...
