hello there,

i'm not sure if i'm on the right track....but i had this song pop into my head from the 80s with a very fast synth bass line with similar lyrics to what you've i googled it with various combinations of the 'into the night/ into the light' as i wasn't quite sure which was correct. and what i found was lyrics to a song by Joe Jackson called "Steppin' Out". the lyrics to the chorus are:-

'Me babe - steppin out

Into the night Into the light

You babe - steppin out

Into the night Into the light'

and one of the verses has lyrics close to what you questioned....

'You -

Can dress in pink and blue just like a child

And in a yellow taxi turn to me and smile

We'll be there in just a while

If you follow me'

i really hope this is the tune that you mean. i'm pretty darn sure it's the one skipping through my head. it's one of those old 80s numbers that was pretty well aired at the time but you hardly hear it these days. i'm gonna try and download it and find out. it's a great tune if we're thinking of the same one.

anyway, good luck!!!

This is so bad but when i was little...this song came out around the same time as the movie E.T. and we used to think he was singing 'E.T.'s ALIVE! E.T.'s ALIVE!'

Just stumbled upon this this morning, looking for a song from the early 80s for about 10 years that I can't find from my childhood.  Really bothers me sometimes.  Anyway. no idea if you're still wondering, but your answer is Joe Jackson - "Steppin' Out", knew it right away when I read the question...

I know a lot of 80's music from the UK. I can tell you who sang what and when. I can possibly help out with questions about music videos and music lyrics. I may be able to answer questions on the American charts but this is NOT my strong-point.


I have every 'Now that's what I call music' compilation from no 1 to no 50, have every 'Hits' compilation from 1 to 5. I have lot's of 80s music videos.
