Just recently I've heard a new song on the radio which I was sure I had heard before, or at least the melody I had heard before. After a short think, it came to me, sort of, but I couldn't bring the old song quite to mind. Last night, right out of the blue, it suddenly came to me........... 75, 76, or something to that effect, by............ erm..........errrrr.......... Smokie??? No.
I admit, I have cheated, I used You Tube and found it.

An American band which did better in Europe than they did in the states named The Connells released the song on their album 'Ring' in 1993. It reached #14 in the UK and the song was ' -74 -75'. Well I was close.

Now, would you believe it? I've forgoten the new song which sounds so close to it.

Here's The Connells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2sXrDbEh18. If I remember the new song I'll post it here so I can discover it I am right, or if I have cracked at last.
If brains were made of dynamite, I wouldn't have enough to blow my nose.

"The Lumineers" are a new folk-rock group who sound similar ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4

or maybe "Mumford&Sons" ... http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Mumford+%26+Sons&oq=Mumford+%26+Sons

OK, so I have now identified that new song. Well, its new to me. It was actually published in March 2012.

I think I'm getting old...er!

Here it is, "Let her Go" by Passenger.

Now, do you hear any similarities? Must admit though, I do rather like both of them.
