Is there a song with lyrics that contain the phrase "On the other side" followed by "The other side" repeated 3 times?

Asked by LostInParadise (17672 points ) December 23rd, 2012

I did a Web search and found nothing, though there are a number of songs that contain the phrase “the other side.” I have been carrying this refrain in my head for over 20 years, though it never occurred to me to try to figure out where it comes from.

Thanks guys, but that is not it. Unfortunately, I am lacking the music ability to explain this much better. The tune is something vaguely like the Beatles song Nowhere Man. I would not rule out the possibility that I grabbed a tune and subconscously put words to it.

I tried sounding out the tune and this is what I came up with for the note sequence. This should give at least a rough contour of the tune, again bearing in mind my lack of musical ability.

Could it be Otherside by the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

If you know the tune, try singing it into midomi.com.

@Mariah , The way I got the note sequence was from using the music search engine at Musicpedia. If you copy f’2 e’4 f’4 a’4 g’4. e’4 f’4 a’4 g’4. e’4 f’4 a’4 g’4. e’4 f’4 a’4 g’4 into the note sequencer and hit the play button, you will be able to hear the notes, and see them also.

@LostInParadise Very cool. Did you try midomi? It is a search engine that tries to match your singing to a known song. Very useful when you remember the tune but not enough words to do a proper google search on the lyrics. I’m afraid I don’t know myself, but midomi is my best suggestion.

@filmfann Do I hear an echo? :)

But seriously – the only songs I can find with the lyrics you’ve given us are these:

Know by System of a Down

Relight My Fire by Dan Hartman

The Other Side by Richard Marx

Probably only the last one is likely to be close to what you’re looking for.

I found it! I used this great site Lyrster for finding song lyrics. The song is On The Other Side by The Seekers. I did mangle the lyrics of the chorus and probably did not do a very good job of recreating the notes.
