The song you are describing sure sounds a lot like Ah! Leah! by one hit wonder Donnie Iris. The chorus goes Ah! Leah! here we go again!  It Came out in 1981 and was a great pop rock song!

I had the same question. Its definately not Bryan Adams or Van Halen. I was thinking the Cars, but I dont think so. Probably a one hit wonder.

I can answer general questions about rock era bands, record labels they were on, and names of songs. Often I can tell the name of the record company that released a song, as well as the name of the song, and the year of release based on some of the lyrics. I grew up during the rock era and I am a musician myself, and always read the album and 45 info for production credits as well as lineups. One of the chat rooms I go to is quite amused at my ability to name a song along with it`s year of release and record label. I was also a record collector for years.
