Help me find a tune,please folks!

Found 26th Mar 2010
I was in Mcdonalds earlier eating some lunch(most unsatisfactory meal but that's another story!) and this tune was being played.I know I have heard it before, on R1 I think,but I have no idea who it's by or what it's called!

It's a very 80's sounding song imo,with synths being played on the chorus(80's sounding synths lol) it's a guy who is singing....if i could remember any lyrics...........forgive my ageing brain!
The only lyrics I can recall are in the chorus.....another guy in a high pitched voice,singing 'you are,you are'....or something like that,slightly off key

Not much to go on I know,but can any of you trendy young things with fingers on the pulse of current music help me out please...................it's driving me mad,I need to know what this song is!!

Nope I'm afraid........can you not get in my head and have a listen?:oops:

Its kinda melodic and ethereal but with a heavy synth riff in the chorus........I'm not very good at this

No female vocalist,only males...................I think some of the other lyrics could be

'I'm only going to be your one night stand'................I may be making that up in a desperate attempt to remember though..........or harking back to my fast and loose days before marriage!:whistling:;-)

how about this, you wanted 80s and it contains "you are"
