Ok so there’s this song I can remember, but I can only remember one line and the instrumental. It sounds like an 80s song, sung by what sounds like a black male. The line I remember is it goes, ‘NA NA NANA NA NANA NA’ then the instrumental is somewhat similar to the Daryl Hall and John Oates song ‘I can’t go for that’, obviously not the exact same but a similar ish sound. Any help? Thanks

(Life In a Northern Town- Dream Academy)
A Salvation Army band played
And the children drank lemonade
And the morning lasted all day
All day
And through an open window came
Like Sinatra in a younger day
Pushing the town away

Hey-y-yah

They sat on the stoney ground
And he took a cigarette out
And everyone else came down
To listen
He said, "In winter 1963
It felt like the world would freeze
With John F. Kennedy
And The Beatles"
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ah-hey-ma-ma-ma

All the work shut down
The evening turned to rain (The evening turned to rain)
Watched the water roll down the drain
As we followed him down
To the station
And though he never would wave goodbye
You could see it written in his eyes
As the train rolled out of sight
Bye-bye

But it was 1971..

Will Smiths Summertime was 1991, nearly 1980s
Ive run through my memory lists of 1980s UK hits. If your in US then maybe it less well known here
Question Author
Bobbin - I am in the UK but the singer was probably American. It’s similar to Alexander O’Neal, the Whispers, kind of sounding song, but not them as I’ve looked through all their songs
A pure stab in the dark here but could it be "Respect Yourself" by The Kane Gang ?
Maybe check out Colonel Abrams (Trapped? - didn't have na,na in it though) Roachford, Sidney Youngblood
Question Author
Fanriffic- no that’s not it unfortunately. The sound of his voice kind of sounds like a billy ocean type of singer, but it’s not him as I’ve been through his songs
What kind of song was it - soul, ballad, upbeat, R&B?
I tried Luther vandross, whispers, Bobby brown, new edition from your Alexander O'Neil suggestion.
Jennifer Stewart we don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time na na na na na
Jermaine!
Question Author
237SJ- it sounds like an 80s pop song with a black male singer
There are slow pop songs, fast pop songs, funky pop songs.
I'll try this suggestion again as you might of missed it

One example of nananas start around 1:50
Back to work now. Will look in this pm for any update
Question Author
Bobbin- Unfortunatley that’s not it lol
