Nope but my Mother knew one of the band members in Dakota. I remember they played at the HS here and she took me. :) I was probably about 11 or 12 at the time.

aha.......... Synch, "Where are you Now" :mad: It was 1986, I thought it was early 80's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Harnen

Harnen was born and raised in Plymouth, Pennsylvania, a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania. In high school he played drums in the marching band. In 1985, he became the drummer for local band Synch, made up of lead vocalist Lou Butwin, guitarist Dave Abraham, bassist James A. Donnelly, and keyboardist Chuck Yarmey.

That year, the band recorded some of their songs, with Harnen singing on one song, "Where Are You Now?". He had written the song with a friend named Rich Congdon, and the band decided to release it as a single on the independent label Micki Records.

After receiving local airplay in the Wilkes-Barre market, Synch got signed to Columbia Records, and "Where Are You Now" was re-recorded at The Warehouse in Philadelphia with former Dakota members Bill Kelly and Jerry Hludzik producing. The band would release the album Get the Feelin' in 1986, and "Where Are You Now" reached #77 on the Billboard Hot 100, but fell off the chart the following week. Synch was soon dropped from Columbia. They spent the next few years trying to recapture the spotlight, before disbanding.

I don't know if anyone covered it, the Wikipedia articles says it was rereleased in 1989 though.

LOL, I actually thoughr it was released before that. A good family friend had a pizza place in Plymouth and his son was a fan. I would have been 15 at the time.... I was actually getting ready to call him it was driving me nuts so much.

Hahahaha, welcome to my world.

Must be Beiber.... :rofl:



Search for "where are you now " returns a few artists on Youtube with songs that have the same title, Britney spears and Nazareth are two big names other than Beiber. They aren't the same song.

Hard to believe that song only made it to # 77. :yearight: That's what I thought until I looked up what Kickass sounds came out that year. It was a tame year. ;)

It made it to number 10 in 1989. :shock: That's got to be some kind of accomplishment in itself to have a one hit wonder make it onto the charts 3 years apart.
