UPDATE: A mystery song may have been identified.

I got this link from reader Scott who is hoping for some help with this mysterious song that seems to have gripped–of all places–Brazil.

You would think with my long history with CFNY/102.1 the Edge (est. 1986) that I’d be able to identify this mystery song, but I can’t. It’s New Order-ish, but I’m pretty sure it’s not them. My guess is that it’s mid-80s Cancon, although it also might be an obscure English import that we played back in the day.

Can you solve the mystery? (Yes, the post is more than a year old, but hey, it’s still a fun mystery, right?)

UPDATE: According to a comment on this YouTube video, the song is “Subways of Your Mind” by Randall Turner. That doesn’t ring any bells with me, but maybe my memory is faulty. (Thanks to Darren for the update. He did all the work.)
