Oldies/searching for song title and artist


Hi Erick, my name is Nancy.  I'm searching for a song title and artist name for a song I've been hearing on the Turner Classic Movie channel when they do their advertisement(movie clips).  Some of the lyrics are as follows:  "It's very dangerous the things we do" thought it sounded like Edele but not sure.  I really love this song, can you help me....

Thanking you in advance,

Hi Nancy,

This is actually a new song by a new artist.  It's called "Under The Influence" by Elle King.  The song is on her debut album called Love Stuff, which was released in February 2015.  Here is a link to a YouTube recording of the song:  It appears to be available through popular download sites such as iTunes and Amazon.

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.

My educational credentials include a college degree in history and over twenty-five years of life experience as a fan of popular music.
