I was working in a warehouse the past couple of the days. The music there seemed to be on a continual loop of Billboard top 40 songs.

One song got stuck in my head - it's lyrics went something like "When you love somebody and your heart goes haa" (where the haas a higher pitch than the rest of those notes sang)

Song is an upbeat song, not rap, but more like pop - but is very modern, likely from the last 5 years.

As stated the song had a real Billboard top 40 vibe to it. Singer kind of sounds like a Brandon Urie from Panic at the Disco or Adam Levine something like that.

Here are some songs I know it is not: -"Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi -"Somebody to Love" by Maroon 5

Please help.

It's not Sting is it?? "if you love somebody set them free"


  • Afraid not. It was much more modern sounding. Has to be from the last 5 years I would think.

  • Bugger. This probably isn't it then but another one in my itunes collection that I thought of was this - Mark Ronson - Somebody to love me. youtube.com/watch?v=EAZv7V4gkGs

It was 5 seconds of Summer, Teeth. I was lucky enough to hear on the radio 2 months later and hear the lyrics better.

I was definitely hearing the wrong lyrics - I am sure that would have helped.
