What was the name of this song

Postby Upasaka Sumana » Tue Jun 02, 2009 3:34 pm

Hi all,

I am looking for a song that I don't remember the title of, nor its lyrics. I can vaguely recall that the video featured two young men and a young woman, travelling, and staying at a motel. The song was pretty cool. Sorry for not being able to provide more clues, but would be grateful if you can help. I think the video was from th 90s.
Do not think lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not think lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

How does the tune go.....? :tongue:

Oh stefan, you sure do pose us some tricky ones, sometimes! :rolleye:

Was the group American?
British?

European?
Do you know what town/city it could have been set in?
Was the hit in the charts?

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

I am sure the video was shot in the US. It was a very popular song. I am sure you have heard it. I remember some of the tune, but I don't know how to sing it to you over the internet.

You'd think they'd have found a way....!

Being in the UK, not all songs made their way over....
I'll see what I can dig up....

The only thing IU could come up with was Warren G's "Regulate"
The lyrics contain the line "The next stop is the Eastside Motel"....

I don't think I would have found it in a million years - I have never heard of it!
Still, I'm glad you got it now....

So, Stefan - what's next? :jumping:
