Do you know or have this obscure song to share?

I just found this cool song on a mixtape I had done back in 1987 or so. I have been trying hard to remember who it is as the singer sounds very familiar. It's really a good song with nice synth lines. If you have a good quality of it to share, it will be just fantastic or if you know who it is, I will try to find a copy.

This is a nice little pop song! I'd also like to know wat it is! Been searching for songs relating to 'window box / picture window'... nothing yet.

This one is really driving me crazy as I MUST know who it is but my memory is not helping. Damn I am getting old. [:D]

Most likely you'll end up finding out yourself. When you do so, please tell me [;)]

I hope so. I don't want it to become another "Stay the Second Time" drama thing. [:D]

Wow, the voice sounds VERY familiar...I will dig through my archives to see if I can at least match the voice - I'm not familiar with the song, sorry.

The link to the SendSpace file is dead; however, if this is the thread I think it is, then yes ... I believe this was resolved and is "Boxbury Beat - Windows"

I've solved it.

But maybe this one was different song.

No. That's not it, but I remember that other thread.

Here is the original song Danielwaver shared in for this thread in March of 2014:

The vocalist sounds similar to the singer from Clox:

"Mountain To Mohammed" by Clox:

Such a shame there isn't more by This Fear. It really was an amazing gothic new wave band, but sadly only 7 tracks :(
