    Default Unknown song

    I heard a song a few months ago while driving through western Kansas. It had the phraze, Im alive, and repeated it a few times. I think it was the song done by Air Supply, But i cant find an album with that song listed???
    More info on the song, it has a 70's/80's beat to it, a song that you could drive to, and one that makes you want to speed.

    I know that is a needle in a hay field, but i thought i would give it a try.

    Ok... its early in the day and I'm sitting in the office, bored out of my skull. So here is what I found, bear in mind I am not able to listen to any of these so don't know what they sound like.

    1) Celine Dion - "I'm Alive"
    2) Jackson Brown - Looking East album
    3) Alice Cooper doing Jackson Brown
    4) Electric Light Orchestra - Xanadu album.

    I run LimeWire software at home, to find songs, but since I'm not there...... well just hope this helps.

    I might be going out on a limb but maybe it's "I'm Alive" by Air Supply.

    Ok. I did a search through most of their songs, but that title didn't show on the list I had.

    And Voyager... nope no confusion here - "Just the facts, M'am."

    Is it this one?


    I'm alive - and the world shines for me today
    I'm alive - suddenly I am here today
    Seems like forever (and a day), thought I could never (feel this way)
    Is this really me? I'm alive, I'm alive

    I'm alive - and the dawn breaks across the sky
    I'm alive - and the sun rises up so high
    Lost in another world (far away), never another word (till today)
    But what can I say? I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

    (Instrumental break)

    Suddenly came the dawn (from the night), suddenly I was born (into light)
    How can it be real? I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

    I'm alive - and the world shines for me today
    I'm alive - suddenly I am here today
    Seems like forever (and a day), thought I could never (feel this way)
    Is this really me? I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

    (Instrumental break)

    I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive


    "I'm Alive" by ELO

    (and I guess that Air Supply did a cover version of it too...)

    Now now boys....this is my era of music.....old hair bands baby!

    Can't forget "Live Wire" by Motley Crue


    Plug me in
    I'm alive tonight
    Out on the streets again
    Turn me on
    I'm too hot to stop
    Something you'll never forget
    Take my fist
    Break down walls
    I'm on the top tonight

    (pre-chorus)
    No, no
    You better turn me loose
    You better set me free
    Cause i'm hot, young, running free
    A little bit better than i use to be.

    (chorus)
    Cause i'm alive
    Live wire
    Cause i'm alive
    I'm a live wire
    Cause i'm alive
    Live wire
    Cause i'm alive
    I'm a live wire

    I'll either break her face
    Or take down her legs
    Get my ways at will
    Go for the throat
    Never let loose
    Goin' in for the kill
    Take my fist
    Break down walls
    I'm on top tonight

    (pre-chorus)(chorus)

    Come on baby
    Gotta play with me
    Well i'm your live wire
    You better lock your doors
    I'm on the prowl tonight
    Well be mine tonight

    (chorus)

    Come on be my baby
    Come on tonight
    Come on love me baby
    Come on tonight
    I'll give you everything
    You want inside
    Plug me in, plug me in
    I want you
    Come on tonight

    How about "Walk Tall" by John Mellencamp...

    The simple minded
    And the uninformed
    Can be easily led astray
    And those that cannot connect the dots
    Hey look the other way
    People believe what they want to believe
    When it makes no sense at all
    so be careful of those who kill in jesus' name
    who don't believe in killing at all
    Walk tall
    Yeah walk on
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    Somewhere out in the distance
    Is the death of you and me
    Even though we don't think of it much
    It's still out there for us to see
    If you treat life like a bar room fight
    You'll die stinking of gin
    No drunkards are allowed in heaven
    No sinners will get in
    Walk tall
    Yeah, walk on
    Walk tall
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    So be careful in what you believe in
    There's plenty to get you confused
    And in this land called paradise
    You must walk in many men's shoes
    Bigotry and hatred are enemies to us all
    Grace, mercy and forgiveness
    Will help a man walk tall
    So walk tall
    Yeah, walk on
    Walk tall
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Yeah, walk tall
    Then walk on
    Walk tall
    Then walk on
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    Walk tall
    Then walk on
    Walk tall


    (Hey, it might be close...)
    Be safe y'all!
