Hi! I am looking for a song, I think it's from the early 80's, but I am not sure.

There's something in the words like "they don't ride like that anymore, they just don't ride like that anymore..." and then there is a bridge like "huh-huh-huh, huh-huh-huh-huh-huh" (Yeah, I know... the guy at the music store called security when I asked him.

Anyway, I hope somebody can help. Thanks!

The word is actually 'Write' not 'ride'.

The song is 'The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)' by the Greg Kihn Band (1981).

It's on his 'RocKIHNroll' album.

A New Orleans band called Dash Rip Rock did a version of "The Breakup Song" where they substituted the lyrics to the Beverly Hillbillies theme song for the verses. It was great.

"Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed,

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh, uh"

They don't write 'em like that anymore.

"They don't write 'em like that anymore," Greg Kihn put it in his own classic pop-rock single, "The Break Up Song" (1981)..

The Greg Kihn Band -- The Breakup Song. It goes, "They don't write 'em like that any more". Does sort of sound like "ride" in the song, though..
