I heard a crappy punk pop song that I kinda liked on the radio today. It's a love song and all I really remember is ...music slowed down then the singer sang " GO! blah blah blah that i want you now!"




EDIT-
It's fucking Weezer! Christ! It didn't even sound like Rivers Cuomo!
Thanks everyone! Especially for the video!

    Not familiar with the song, but I have two tips that may help:

    1.) Try Googling the lyrics and adding the word "lyrics" at the end of your Google Search the next time you hear 3 or 4 words in a row. I.e. "Surprises let me know she cares lyrics" or "you can find me in the club bottle lyrics"

    2.) See if your radio station has a website. If it does, any good radio station is going to have a list of songs recently played that stretches back for 24 hours. Look at the time you heard the song, then YouTube it to see if it's the one.

    Most stations list what they played at whatever time in a day. That + youtube = your answer

    Yes.com is where I go when I need a radio station's playlist.

    Especially when said radio station doesn't have a very good list/website of their own

    He also said punk.

    Definately not two words I'd associate with Weezer. Still, I think this is likely the song the OP was referring too.

    "Crappy" is a matter of taste, and pop/punk is an entirely different genre than punk. People also can have very different views on what belongs in a certain genre. I am almost certain that song is what the OP is referring to.

    At no point in "I want you to" does Rivers Cuomo say "Go!"

    Unless he misheard "Girl."

    OP heard the song once. He misheard girl as go, not exactly a hard mistake to make. Cuomo also never says "I want you now", OP just didn't remember the line correctly.

    Just listen to the same station again, and if you by chance hear it, check the time and then check the radio's website if it has a list of everything it played. I had a situation where I heard a song and liked it, but had NO IDEA what it was or who it was by, and it took me a few days to find it. But that's all I did.

    ... or just remember a few words in a sequence of the song and google it within quotation marks.
