Question
Hi Bong, I am looking for two songs. Una male singer very limited yung lyric na alam ko. Another day .... at/by your side. The other one is a female singer, nadinig ko ito  like a theme song going up to Baguio. Lets go up to the mountain and leaving....behind. Ito lang ang natatandaan ko matagal na kasi. Thank you in advance.

JR

Answer
Dear JR,

That first song is really difficult. Your clues are limited, like you said. But the second song, I had a feeling I can help you identify it. Could be SOFT MELODY by JOHN KAIZAN NEPTUNE from his 1981 album MIXED BAG. JOHN KAIZAN is the builder of shakuhachi or the Japanese bamboo flute which was featured very prominently on this song. Check it out!

What do you know...the other song has to be a jazz number like the second one. Tell me if it's STAY AWAKE by RONNIE LAWS from his 1981 album SOLID GROUND. Here it lyrics:


Another day, another place
Another night and youíre not here
Once again far from home
All alone to play my song
I know in just a little while
Iíll be right there to see your face
But until I can

I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side

In a special way I need your touch
To fill the warmth that comforts me
And you know itís true
All and all Iíd rather spend this time with you
But until I can

I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby

I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side, baby
(I stay awake and I want you, baby)
I stay awake and I want you by my side

(I stay awake and I want you, baby)

Expertise

I can answer just about everything from the 80`s, rock, pop, trivias, artist infos, Billboard chart positions, albums, etc. But songs that became hit in the Philippines and OPM songs are my expertise. I grew on 80`s music and still listening to 80`s music as it is the best era in music history for me. My friends call me the walking encyclopedia of 80`s music. I got books & collections of CDs and vinyl records, all from the 80`s.

Experience

Let's just say music is my life and my source is a lifetime of knowledge about 80's music and then some.
