Topic: What is this song?

A thread for those who are looking for the name of a song and the artist.

Re: What is this song?

I'll start this puppy off, by repeating a question I asked many moons ago and never got a correct answer to.

It's a song from the mid-90s -- I'd say '95, '96.  It's a mid-temp, heavy distortion alternative rock song about a guy in love with an underaged girl.  The only lyrics I remember are "Stay with me Diana," and I seem to remember a mention of the girl being sixteen.  Which leads me to think -- I say think, I am not entirely positive -- that it could be a 90s alt-rock cover of the Paul Anka song Diana, which shares that same lyric line.

But before folks start dropping guesses, it is NOT a song by any of these bands:

Changos Del Rock
Warren Dean Flandez
Ricky Martin
Johnny Hallyday
Humphrey

Or any of the other first-page results from google.  I know; I've checked every damned last one of them.  And again, I'm not even sure it's a cover.  I just remember mid-tempo, distorted guitar, and a dude singing "Stay with me, Diana."

HELP!

Still looking for that one, eh?

Re: What is this song?

Always, man.  You know how you can be sitting around, reading a book, surfing the web, and next thing you know you find yourself repeating a single lyric of a song, the agony of your inability to remember more of it like a red-hot knife being twisted into your cerebellum as if by the hand of a gleeful Spanish inquisitor?

That, for sixteen years. hmm

Perhaps?

Re: What is this song?

Appreciate you taking a shot, 'rat, but that's not it.  Like most 90s alt-rock it's slower paced than that, with more of a laid back feel.  But thanks for taking the time to help, my man. smile

Re: What is this song?

HOLY SHIT!  I FOUND IT!  And it only took me 18 years!  It's called "Diana," by a band called 3 lb Thrill:

It's not a Paul Anka cover, and the lyric I remembered was "PLAY with me Diana," not "Stay with me Diana," but it IS about a guy in love with an underage girl (if the lyrics I found are correct, the guy in the song is actually the girl's uncle! lol ), it IS mid-tempo with heavy distortion guitar and it WAS released in 1995.

Almost two decades and the search is finally over!  YAY, ME!

Re: What is this song?

You have to understand, if I had to pick my single biggest point of personal pride (aside from my daughter, natch') it would be my steel-trap memory.  Be it movies, music or even the most insignificant of life experiences, I tend to remember damn near EVERYTHING, and usually without so much as an ounce of effort.  So I get genuinely infuriated when my memory fails me. 

This song has been my white whale for almost twenty years, and I finally caught the fucker.  It's an indescribably satisfying feeling. smile

Re: What is this song?

On the rare occasion I do imbibe, I tend to kick back and chill with a White Russian.  And if I had the ingredients to do so, I'd be kicking back and chilling with one right now in celebration. lol

Re: What is this song?

Well here's something that probably is part of the recipe, H3LL Russia = Vodka so enjoy this very cool thing... big_smile

Best bottle design EVER!!!
