Something "on the tip of my memory" as it were.
A friend has just posted an image of some desirable location to his FB feed with the caption "where I'd rather be".
And the words "I'd rather be" are now driving me round the bend with some half=triggered recollection of the chorus of some crappy song. I have a feeling it's some MOTR popular pop song from the 70s or 80s, bordering on the "novelty song" genre perhaps, or perhaps not.
Edit: and it has bugger all to do with that crappy Clean Bandit song which is what comes up when you google "lyrics rather be rather be"

I've now picked up a similar "rather be" earworm, also not revealing its title, and so the answer will come to me when I least want it. Will it be the same song? Stay tuned (no don't, it could take days ... )
ha! I knew OTF would not let me down! Thanks tee rex, it was indeed that god-awful Baccara hit that was at the back of my mind. And thanks Gero for your suggestions.
This message board community, even after all the regrettable departures, is a thing of wonder where such queries are concerned. I'm sorry I can't remember who it was, but a while ago I summarised a few aspects of the plot of some 1970s TV drama episode, without more, and somebody was able to identify it for me as an episode of Macmillan and Wife.
God-awful Baccara hit? Take that back, you heathen! True, it's no "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie", one of the greatest pop-disco songs ever committed to vinyl. But "Sorry I'm, A Lady" is great fun. That spoken intro...
G-Man, I'm afraid that on that question I'm with comedian Tony Hawks, who once gave the song a minute or two in one of his routines, noting that the message "I'm a lady" should not need any apology, and that "sorry I'm in Baccara" might be more appropriate.
