Stuck in my Head
After a day spent finalizing the stuff in an author information questionnaire (apparently I am a complete stranger to me when the word "bio" enters the equation) I have one thing first and foremost on my mind: what the sam hill is the song in my head?
I first encountered mystery song while a friend had CMT on. I haven't listened to the radio for years, so while I know darned well the song must have a real title and the gent who sings it, a proper name, I am drawing a blank.
What I remember for sure:
Video is in black and white, blondish guy in tuxedo wanders beaches and bars while looking utterly miserable, singing about his beloved who has apparently either died or split (personally, I like to think that she's passed on and he's gone round the bend, but you know me) Searching scenes interspersed with smoochy From Here to Eternity type (memory?) scenes of narrator and aforementioned beloved.
Lyrics list several places in California, where the thing is apparently set.
Chorus has a refrain of "I been looking for you baby/I been looking for you baby/all night long."
What I'm fuzzy on but think I remember:
I *think* the title is "El Cerrito Bay" but could be wrong.
My instinct is to say that the singer's first name is Jimmy, but I'm ninety five percent sure it isn't.
Big help, huh? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed.
