HELP, DL sleuths, I'm looking for a 70's song

I haven't heard it in decades, but it was played to death in the late 70's. Can't remember anything about the actual words, except something sounding like " daaa, daannny booon, danny, danny boon.....tuh tuh, tuh tuh tuh tuhtuh tuh tuh tuhn tuhtuh..."it was a long melancholic ballad, sounding vaguely native american...That's all I've got

This reminds me of the time I was desperately trying to figure out the title of the song that I would later discover is Francis Lai's theme from "A Man And A Woman". It went on for several years, because NO ONE I sang it to had any idea what I was talking about, and I could only remember that it was used very briefly in one episode of "Will & Grace".

Keep us posted OP. Now I'm invested.

I just re-read your description and I posted Daddy Cool upthread. It's German, not Native American. And it doesn't have the syllables you mention, but I could see how Daddy Cool could sound like Danny Boon.

In related Datalounge music sleuthing, I was so happy when someone in the old Disco thread was able to identify a song that I'd been looking for years. The only part of the song I'd ever heard was the intro, and it had no lyrics so I couldn't search for it that way. It was the song used on The Facts of Life on the episode where Tootie's in a dance contest with a white boy. I linked the video of that scene and had my answer pretty quickly. Still grateful to that DLer and am listening to the song now and sending the poster my gratitude.

Hope you find your song too, OP!

My deepest apologies, R66. I didn't read the description fully before posting. I'm a caregiver for my mom, and as I was reading it, I heard a clatter in the kitchen, and I ran out there thinking she had fallen. When I came back, I posted the song that came to mind that sounded like Danny Boon. I then went back to read the original post for further clues and realized the song didn't fit all the criteria. I beg your forgiveness., as your approval and regard are of utmost importance to me. I promise I will never let it happen again.

A song could be played to death on "easy listening" stations in the late 70s, even if it came out in the early 70s.

I know this is true, because I know songs from early 70's The Carpenters that I only heard when my Mom drove us to kindergarten and elementary school in the late 70s.

And the songs probably weren't played to death. But to kids trapped in a car without control of the radio, it felt like "to death".

I don't know what to say.

With all due respect, r296, if someone was singing the words daaa, daannny booon, danny, danny boon.....tuh tuh, tuh tuh tuh tuhtuh tuh tuh tuhn tuhtuh it would have been solved by now. The melody to Midnight Blue could fit Op’s piss poor description. Also their assertion that it was a hit in France…Midnight Blue was it was number 1 for 31 weeks. It was covered by a French group too.

And, clearly you haven’t read most of the thread…a good portion of the songs don’t fit daaa, daannny booon, danny, danny boon.....tuh tuh, tuh tuh tuh tuhtuh tuh tuh tuhn tuhtuh…but sure, be an asshole.

No, it couldn't. It utilized the melody of the second movement of "Sonata Pathétique" by Beethoven! Beethoven NEVER wrote anything that even remotely sounds like "daaa, daannny booon, danny, danny boon.....tuh tuh, tuh.tuh tuh tuhtuh tuh tuh tuhn tuhtuh", for fuck's sake.

This song tells a story about Native Americans. Not from the 70s, and no Danny Boon, but it does sort have a "tun tun tun tun" in the background.

So it’s a plaintive ballad sung by a man which has a new-agey Native American vibe and it was really popular in the late 70s.

The song can’t possibly be that well known if all of these people have not been able to find it after several weeks. Have you considered that maybe you’re not remembering the song correctly (it’s easy to misinterpret lyrics) or it’s way more obscure than you think it is? And where is the recording you promised?

[quote]Something by Redbone?

That's what I thought. A couple of their other hits were linked earlier, but I was thinking specifically of this one. Native American-influenced group. '70s. Indecipherable lyrics, including "Boo-lah rooka hook and chain" and "Boom boom like a shi shi hand." Not a long melancholic ballad, but it's...rueful.
