PLEASE HELP!!! TWO TOUGH ONES FROM THE EIGHTIES
FIRST POSTING HERE, I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR YEARS FOR THESE SONGS. FIRST ONE WAS AN EARLY 80'S DANCE SONG. LYRICS GO SOMETHING LIKE THIS. "A MELODY SENDS ME OFF TO SLEEP AND IN THE MORNING GETS ME ON MY FEET. WHEN YOU LEFT I FELT SO INSECURE, I HAD MY FREEDOM ITS MORE THAN I'LL ENDURE. OH GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN REMENBER..." BAND MAY HAVE BEEN DAZZ DANKLE 109?
SECOND SONG WAS AN EARLY MTV VIDEO (MAY EVEN HAVE BEEN VIDEO JUKEBOX WHICH IN MY AREA PRECEDED MTV) LYRICS LIKE THIS JOHNNY'S ON THE PHONE WITH THE TAXIMAN, BILLY'S BY THE PHONE GOT A GUN IN HIS HAND...CHORUS BABY UNDER THE BOULEVARD LIGHTS WE'RE RUNNING THE STREETS TONITE, UNDER THE BOULEVARD LIGHTS, CAUSE THAT'S WHERE WE LIVE OUR LIVES.

PLEASE HELP!!! TWO TOUGH ONES FROM THE EIGHTIES



Song #1 Could be this song...

Artist: Chas Jankel

Song: 109 (Give Me Something I Can Remember)
The actual song title is "109"

Album Title: Questionnaire

Year: 1982


Note: Former Keyboardist/Guitarist for Ian Dury & The Blockheads

" Chas Jankel was one of the founding members of Britain's infamous Ian Dury and The Blockheads in the 70's: the vehicle of the late, great eccentric Ian Dury. In the early 80's Chas moved into dance/funk territory as a solo artist releasing Questionnaire (1981) among his other releases, which is where "109" hails from. Also featured on this album is the stupendous dance floor thumper "Glad to Know You", with quirky lyrics provided by none other than his old mate Ian Dury (appears on the Billboard Top Dance Hits 1982 compilation, by the way)."
