Me 2010

Mystery from long ago finally solved!

Way back when I was in high school, I fell in love with a song I heard on the radio. I only heard it a few times; never able to catch the name or artist. I couldn't even remember the entire tune - just part of the refrain: "because you're there inside my brain" and the repeat of "because you're there" - plus there were chimes. This was back in the late 70's and there was no Internet, no Google-fu =)

For whatever reason, I was thinking about it this morning and so I goggled "lyrics: because you're there inside" and lo & behold, "Riccardo Cocciante - When Love Goes Away"

I tried Itunes & Amazon, trying to find a spot I could listen to the song to make sure that it was correct. I ended up going to http://www.coccianteclub.it/ and looking under Album: Discogrphia Inglese e Americana, and there was the song. It was the RIGHT song!

Now I just have to find a place to get a copy of it.
