I had a friend in college my first year at Nazareth in Rochester, NY.

She constantly listened to this song and now I cannot remember what it is.
I think it involved a guy named Johnny and a car crash, classic Boston/Kansas era.

Please, if you think you know what it might be - post. It is right on the edge of my brain but no, not there.

It has been driving me insane for the last 7 hours and yes, I know I should have been asleep. But I've been pouring over lists of "hits" from the '70s and '80s instead and when I got to "Neverending Story" I had such bizarre and awful flashbacks I knew I had to just ASK you people for HELP!

PLEASE HELP!!!

Nope. No, that's Pearl Jam. 90's. or '50s?
This is late '70s or early '80's.

Crap. It is making me crazy that I cannot remember it! "Johnny was a ...." I have that much, and then it turns into "Jack and Dianne" which is just wrong!

Pearl Jam did have a remake of this song, which I don't think I've heard. It was played so much in the 60's I got sick & tired of it!

Ha. Hahaha...you guys are awesome.

Don't you know? :rollhappy:

I finally found it on a really weird search.
Bad Company.
"Shooting Star"

I was a bit off on the car crash, I'm afraid. Crash but not car related, I'm afraid.

(now that I CAN sleep, I have to get up. Clearly, I should have asked this question about 8 hours ago.)
