Title: Dumb ? But I need an answer.
Post by rockford_boy on Jul 17th, 2009 at 2:01am
The band played this song at the Rockford show (Come See Me / I'm Your Man). Which one of these is the title and who did the original. I love the song, but don't have any recordings of The Romantics doing it, and I want to find the original tune.

Any help?

That is a Pretty Things song, and its title is "Come See Me." Same guys who recorded "Midnight to Six Man."

Thank you much! Leave it to a Ramone to answer the question. Gabba Gabba Thanks.

Well, you are almost correct.  The Pretty Things did the version most similar to The Romantics version.  However, the "original" version is somewhat different.
