My daughter and I were having a nice "discussion" when she playfully put her hand in my face and said "Goodbye to you". Of course, that reminded me of this song by Scandal, so I downloaded it for my daughter who has never heard the song before. Now, I am playing it over and over, and I can't get the song out of my head. Oh, my 12 year old daughter likes it too.

While I'm someone who normally seeks underrated, forgotten or rare music and prefers to claim those as some of the best songs ever written just to spark some excitement and show some appreciation for bands that never got a fair shake, I do have to make some exceptions from time to time. Scandal's "Goodbye To You" is a MAJOR exception! Nothing and I mean NOTHING gets my adrenaline pumping quite like Scandal's "Goodbye To You".

As many of you hopefully know, Patty Smyth is a gifted singer. Her solo career and Horses perfectly reveals this, but WOW did she ever nail a perfect song with "Goodbye To You". We're talking the right vocal range, the right set of emotions, the right conditions, the right singer for the role, the right period in time... everything was spot-on for this particular occasion. The lyrics illustrate how frustrated she feels from all the times she waited for a love that's not worth the aggravation, and she elevates her vocal range to proportions in so many different categories that when I'm not enjoying the vocal melody, I'm paying close attention to her amazing vocal techniques.

And the part that floors me the most? When her voice dramatically builds revealing heartache and despair as she sings the line "And my love, and my love, and my love, and my love won't stand the pa-a-ain. And my heart, and my heart, and my heart, and my heart can't stand the stra-a-ain" and how this kind of melodic chaotic confusing carnival-like synth part plays immediately afterwards. THIS WHOLE PART IS AWESOME! And then there's all kinds of "Ooooh oh oh oh ohs!" that Patty uses that all sound perfectly natural. I feel a strong connection to this song and Patty's voice in particular. No doubt about it!

What a shame this song isn't heard on FM radio anymore. A dog on shame. Please enjoy this song!

Download worked. I like the fact that it went to the cloud also. The amazon app that downloaded with it is pretty good and easy to use and I'm 62

Love this song-it has a good beat and makes me want to dance. Love Scandal and the songs from the early 80's

This goes on my "woman scorned" playlist. Quintessential 80 s music you just can't say no to. One of my 80s faves.

What it's a great 80s song pick it up and rock out. This was played on various mix tapes, radio stations and the sort whenever 80s music is playing.
