But that's why I need help.

They were a keyboard-pop duo, beginning-mid of the 80s, both of them playing standing behind their keyboards, they had a video-clip of the song, they were European, and the tune went

"Where can I go
(then here they told a different country in every verse and rejected it from some reason)

and the chorus went

I think I'll will go to Luxembourg
that is not that far from here"

What makes me think about a Belgian, German, Holland or Swiss duo. It may be a real lost obscure song, but it's been sounding in my head for 20 years.

Recently I thought I had been close, when I remembered The Twins (that duo of "Heart to heart, face to face" fame) but I couldn't find that among their lyrics, which they have in their site, that BTW I recommend you if you don't know the band: www.the-twins.de

I'm not a mp3 user or soulseeker, so I need extra help for this.

Thanks

I don't know if you already found the video by now, but in case you didn't...



I'm looking for a better copy of the video, or of just the audio so I can overlay it because this audio has two glitches, but I appreciate that you posted about them at all here. Yours was the only post I found about this song. It was in my head, too! :)
