Hi ... I've just stumbled across this site ... (looking for a song myself). Anyhow, assuming offered answers were NOT the song sought.. I believe this one fits the bill: 'The Friends of Mr.Cairo' ... from 1981 .. by 'Jon & Vangelis', from the album of the same name. Bullet shots, screeching tires,gangster references,  man/woman desperate dialogue ... even references to old movies (and Jimmy Stewart impression) . Surely THIS is the one ?

I can answer quite a few questions on early US R & B, as well as psychedelic folk and rock and late '60s hard R & B and (what would become known as "heavy metal"). I can answer most questions about band line-ups and band record labels from the 1970s. From 1981 to 1990, I was heavily involved in the alternative radio and punk rock scenes and can identify bands with cities (called "scenes") and record labels.


My brother was an avid album-oriented rock fan in the mid to late '70s and early '80s, and I idolized him and his vast 8-track collection of bands like Sweet, Boston, Styx, Queen, Foghat, and Nazareth.
Later, I got into punk rock, especially hardcore, and worked at a college radio station doing punk rock and psychedelic radio shows from 1984-1989.
