I am in search of a rather rare 80s song I heard on the radio. I have heard the song played in vacation promotion commercials, but I know nothing specific. The group sounds British..or at least not American. The main part of the song is a woman or group of women singing notes. Its very new-ageish, yet somewhat Carribean. The chorus sings something like 'hey-a-na-na--he-ey-ey-yaaaa' very strange. any song suggestions are appreciated. i've searched through lists of 80s songs..downloading enough of 100s to eliminate them. Thanks.

I think you're thinking of 'Life in a Northern Town' by Dream Academy. Its chorus is very close to what you describe. And you're right: it's an 80s tune and I believe DA is a British group.
