Question
Just recently, I heard this song on one of my local radio stations(magic 104.1, Oklahoma City,OK.) but the station would never say what the title or artist of this song was but I all I can remember right now are these lyrics that go like this; "Just for a moment I was back in school, felt that old familiar pain" (I think it said pain in that last part anyway but I'm not completely sure) but if you might know what the title and artist of this song is I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks.

Answer
Hello again David,

The song is "Same Old Lang Syne" by Dan Fogelberg. It's a wonderful bittersweet song that's usually played around the holidays, because of the setting of the story, but I've never thought of it as strictly a holiday song. It reached #9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking the last week of 1980.  Here's a YouTube recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmVXYOJzAJM

Thanks,
Erick

I can answer all questions related to hit songs and pop artists of the rock and roll era. My specialty is U.S. Billboard Top 40 chart history and one hit wonders from 1950's through the 90's. I can also research lyrics to songs. I am more knowledgeable in the area of pop and rock songs, but I am willing to research soul and country songs. I cannot answer questions relating to classical, jazz, or rap songs. Also, I'm not an expert on music videos.

I am an avid reader of Joel Whitburn Top 40 books and a collector of all pop and rock hit songs.
