    Default Solved: A few unknown songs - please help me identify

    Hi all,

    I heard these songs on an old cassette tape and am wondering what the name of the song is and also the artist. From what I can remember, here are the lyrics of the unknown songs. They were around in the early 80s I think.

    Song 1: - Solved - One in a million by Lene Lovich
    "There's just one in a million people who can make me feel so fine, there's just one in a million people who could fascinate my mind"

    Song 2: - Unknown
    "he said goodbye (oh-woh-woh) I didn't cry, so my sailor boy said ship ahoy and joined the navy

    Song 3: - Unknown
    "Big girls don't cry, maybe that's a lie, well momma didn't warn me about this, momma didn't warn me about this. He's gone, oh my, have to find another guy, I thought that I was gonna be his, I thought that I was gonna be his. Momma tried to warn me, I didn't listen.....or something like that.

    Song 4: - Unknown
    South pacific, Ice pacific, leave it there...or something along those lines, haven't heard it for ages.

    Thanks

    Jamie

    No it's none of them, they had an late 70s/80s kind of beat and used synthesisers. I know the first line of song 2 starts of something like "m m m m my boys called moe, he's my own, I love him so he comes from tokyo."
