    I am trying to find out the name of a song... the only line I can remember is the end of the song -the last lyrics -and it says --- sounds like distant thunder. -- Its not about thunder I think its a love song or a breakup song... male singer (don't know who) and not sure what year either...haha--- can you help - no one else (my family) has been able to figure it out. I googled those lyrics but all I see is a gospel song and a country song -- neither is the song as I think its more of a motown type song...Its driving me crazy!

    Bummers. I wonder if you got the lyrics precise. Personally I get them wrong all the time. All these years I got less than half the lyrics to Bennie and the Jets right.:goofy: What the hell is Elton saying.

    This one came to mind

    This City Never Sleeps


    “You can hear the sound
    Of the underground trains
    You know it feels like distant thunder…”

    Any other clues? Is it fast tempo or slow? When/where did you hear it? Tv show? Is he white or black? (this could be misleading)

    It is a slow song.... I have heard it on the radio- mostly when I was in Philly/NJ not so much here in Florida and haven't heard it for at least a month - I am thinking its an oldie but cant be positive.... not sure black or white...and the last word in the song is thunder

    Gus - wow-- not the song but you really tried... and I appreciate it so much..

    fenway68 -- I wish it was Bob Seger but nah, its not the right one...

    My husband thinks I imagined the song -- haha ---because no one knows what it was called....and I can't sing so I can't even try to sing it... crazy!
