    Default Help me find an oldie

    Hello,
    I have an oldie recorded from a cassette, which I can't find anywhere.
    The title is probably "Sing a song", but I don't know the artist.
    Here is the recording: [url]http://picosong.com/3CGv/[/url]

    I don't recognize it at all. You might want to put the lyrics here, to help people quickly decide if they've heard it, and to mention it has a male vocalist. It also has a strong eastern influence, with an instrument like a balalaika and strange modal chord progression, something like "Those Were the Days" (Mary Hopkin, 1968) ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ulI-T0YxAw[/url]). It sounds very '60s to me.

    Hi, it's very likely that it's what wurzlsepp ^ suggested. [url]http://www.45cat.com/artist/chris-mcclure/uk[/url]

    If you listen to Chris McClure the voice is very similar.
