  1. I'm having a temporary "brain fart". Who performed the song, On and On?

    Saigon Kick also has an "On and On", although I doubt it's the one you're thinking of. Shame, as it's got a pretty little picked 'n muted bassline.

    Sting's 'Fragile' has a sort of hook line before the actual chorus, that goes "on and on" - as I find that song and most of Sting's output pretty dull, it kind of sums up how I feel about it - a sort of whine, that goes "on and on".......:meh:

    Stephen Bishop, if it's the "On and On" you're thinking of. I nearly hemmoraged trying to think of it about 3 months ago.

    Hopefully you aren't still wondering after 2 months.
  8. SciFiGuy is correct-- it's Bishop.

    That is, if the chorus goes "On and on, he just keeps on trying / and he smiles when he feels like crying / on and on, on and on, on and on..."
