"Find a way before it gets too late" song

"Find a way before it gets too late" song

Postby CanzetYote » Sun Nov 30, 2014 4:07 pm

Okay, so around 2005 or 2006, I hear this new wave-esq song on a radio station by a group that sounded similar to The Go-go's or Bananarama. It had a female singer and the chorus was something along the lines of "Find a way before it gets too late". I've tried Google with no luck so it must be one of those songs that's so obscure no lyrics website lists it. I've also asked on Tvtropes with no luck.

Songs that have been ruled out:
*Swing Out Sister - Breakout
*Madonna - Hung Up
*Dionne Ferris - Find A Way (Too slow tempo and r&bish)
*Edguy - Paradise (It's heavy metal and barely matches the description)

If it's any help, the radio station was a San Diego station called FM 94.9 which mostly plays alternative hard rock nowadays but used to dabble in new wave as well as alternative rock back then. I even emailed the station and got no reply back. The song sounds like it's from te 80s but considering the fact that new 80s style hair metal and AOR artists like Wild Rose, Work Of Art and Brother Firetribe are popping up, new New Wave artists wouldn't be too big a stretch. It could be from anywhere from the early 80s to 2005/2006 with that being said.

The tune sounds like it's from te 80s yet considering the way that new 80s style hair metal and AOR specialists like Wild Rose, Work Of Art and Brother Firetribe are flying up.

It sounds like the song you may be looking for is "Talk To Me" by Fiona.

Part of the chorus lyrics are "Just give it to me straight/Baby now, before it gets too late."

I could be wrong, but that's the first thing that popped into my head. Here's the "Talk To Me" video, so you can check it and see if it's the right song.
