    December 1985
    Tempe Arizona
    heard it on the radio -- the song.....
    "We drive by night.."
    was that the title, or just a phrase in the song?
    Anyone know what it was I heard on the radio ??

    Rock? Country? Male or female vocalist?

    Was that line the chorus?

    1985 does narrow it down, but are you sure of the lyric? can you add any more?

    Google, lyrics drive by night. Thats how I find what Im lookin for. Even if its not the title itll list those words
     

  5. You must have heard Radar Love by Golden Earring. Thats the only driving song that counts. :D. Went to their show last year right here in TIEL, man they still are a force to be reckoned with.

    They Drive By Night was a pretty good Humphrey Bogart movie, early 40's I think. Not what you're looking for but was the first thing that popped in my head when I saw the thread title. :confused:

    Been 25 years but I recall:
    rock
    chorus line -- I think so
    a group

    I've done a lot of googling without luck.... maybe it was a one hit wonder...

    Maybe it was this...
    This was a song that got some radio play in 1985, on a crappy radio it might sound like "drive by night".

    Almost makes me think of "This Ain't the Summer of Love" by Blue Oyster Cult.

    I worked at Flint auto parts at Mill and University in '85, lived at Lemon and Terrace in Tempe Park Place, and picked women at Graffitti's on Mill... Sorry, nothing on the song though.

    Sounds like a song that Rush sings. That line is a song they sing anyway.

    "drive all night" is a much more popular lyric if you start searching for something....

    Now that you mentioned this, it's been driving me nuts all morning. I can remember the line your talking about, but I can't place it either. It would help to better catagorize it if I knew what station you listened to back then... Key 103 ? KSTM "the storm at 107? KUPD 98? Probably not KZZP unless a girlfriend was involved! I'm guessing KSTM. How about "I drove all night"? Dave Edmunds maybe?

    BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN ??
    "Drive All Night"

    When I lost you honey sometimes I think I lost my guts too
    And I wish God would send me a word send me something I'm afraid to lose
    Lying in the heat of the night like prisoners all our lives
    I get shivers down my spine and all I wanna do is hold you tight
    I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
    And to taste your tender charms
    And I just wanna sleep tonight again in your arms
    Tonight there's fallen angels and they're waiting for us down in the street
    Tonight there's calling strangers, hear them crying in defeat.
    Let them go, let them go, let them go do their dances of the dead (let 'em go right ahead)
    You just dry your eyes girl, and c'mon c'mon c'mon let's go to bed, baby, baby, baby
    I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
    And to taste your tender charms
    And I just wanna sleep tonight again in your arms
    There's machines and there's fire waiting on the edge of town
    They're out there for hire but baby they can't hurt us now
    Cause you've got, you've got, you've got, you've got my love, you've got my love
    Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the wind, the rain
    You've got, you've got my, my love heart and soul
