Help with an 80's song!

Does anyone remember an 80's band called Fisher' Ed (or something like that). Im trying to find them on Kaza but am having no luck. I believe they had one hit, but cant remember that either, lol.

Are you talking about Climie Fisher?

This was the duo of Rob Fisher (from Naked Eyes) and Simon Climie. They had one hit called "Love Changes (Everything).

Do I win the prize? It hit #23 back in July of 1988. It is the only 80's group or artist I have heard of with Fisher in the title.

Fischer Z (a play on Fish's Head - Americans pronounce it Zee but we pronounce it Zed) had a hit with "So Long".... a Greg Khin Band kinda sound..I think it was about 1990.

From an album in 1990 called Going Deaf For A Living.

So Long

When I read your letter I couldn't believe that you'd gone.
I dialled your number but no one answered the phone.
I asked your friends to tell me if they knew where you were,
they said they thought that you were ill.
I hired a detective to try and find out where you are.
He managed to trace you, he said you were living in France.
A watchman saw you climb into someone else's car and drive off
laughing in the night. Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way.
You could have told me and not waited for so long.

I've tried to forget you but I find myself walking the street.
I went to the doctor and he gave me something to sleep. I've sent
you telegrams but you haven't answered one. Your mother told me
I best leave you well alone. I hope you're satisfied now you've done
this thing to me. I hope you're pleased with what you've done.
Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way. Oh you could have told
me and not waited for so long.

For so long I never realized just exactly who you were. I never
realized just exactly. I've never realized the girl I had before.
I hope you're satisfied you won't hear from me again. I hope
you're pleased with what you've done. Why didn't you tell me?
Not leave me this way. Oh you should have told me and not
waited for so long.

Another 80's song

This has been driving me crazy for awhile, it was a song I heard on the radion a long time ago.

All I remember are the lyrics

"So this is how it feels to be lonely, this is how it feels to be small, this is how it feels when your world means nothing at all."


This should be easy provided any of the words I remember are right, and it was a British band. Thanks.
