"Sooner or Later"
Hi

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me who sings a song entitled "Sooner or Later".

I think it was late 70's. The singer was a male, singing fairly high up in his register, and based on the accent, probably an American.

There are a number of songs which all share this title, but I've not found the right one yet.

Amazingly enough, I've just discovered that the TV show "The Saddle Club" has spawned some albums(!), and on one of them ("Friends Forever") is a cover version of this song (!!)

Courtesy of the Saddle Club lyrics sites then:

CHORUS:

Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind
(Make up your mind)
Don't waste my time anymore, sooner or later!
So take it or leave it, baby I see that you're messing around
Please don't let me down, baby come on and love me


An excerpt of it is available, but be warned, only girls under 12 who love horses, deaf people over 60 or cast members of the "Jackass" TV show may actually enjoy the experience:

''Sooner Or Later''
It's certainly not the Grass Roots 'Sooner Or Later' (1971), (which incidentally was an Aussie hit for Girlfriend in the '90s). The lyrics are totally different...

First, the saddle club song...
Oh, I'm not a fool boy, I know you've been hanging around
I think it's time a way was found to open your heart to me
So, take my advice now, stop this masquerade
Aien't it time we made a start to our romance

Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind
(Make up your mind)
Don't waste my time anymore, sooner or later!
So take it or leave it, baby I see that you're messing around
Please don't let me down, baby come on and love me

So, what do you say now?
I'm tired of playing cat and mouse
Baby, let's play house, baby come on
And give me your answer

Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind
(Make up your mind)
Don't waste my time anymore, sooner or later!

Hey, come on, do you wanna be by my side
Or are you gonna stay home and cry you've got to hold me
(Sooner or later)
Love me (Sooner or later)
Kiss me (Sooner or later)
Come on, oh yeah!

Sooner or later
Sooner or later
Sooner or later
Sooner or later

Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind
(Make up your mind)
Don't waste my time anymore, sooner or later!
So take it or leave it, baby I see that you're messing around
Please don't let me down, baby come on and love me

Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah
Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah

Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind
Sooner or later you're gonna have to make up your mind

Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah!
Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah!

Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah!
Sooner or later, sooner or later
Sooner or later, yeah!

...and now The Grass Roots...

Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya
Sooner or later, girl you got to give in
Sooner or later, love is gonna let ya
Sooner or later, love is gonna win

Its just a matter of time
Before you make up your mind
To give all that love that you've been hiding
Its just a question of when
I've told you time and again
I'll get all the love you've been denying

Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya
Sooner or later, girl you got to give in
Sooner or later, love is gonna let ya
Sooner or later, love is gonna win

You say you'll never be mine
But darling they'll come a time
I'll taste all that love that you've been hiding
Its just a question of time
Before you make up your mind
And give all that love you've been denying

You've been looking for love
In all the wrong places
You've been looking for love
All the wrong faces
Gotta get ya girl
On this illusion
Gonna save your heart
>From all this confusion

Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya
Sooner or later, girl you got to give in
Sooner or later, love is gonna let ya
Sooner or later, love is gonna win
Love is gonna win

Its just a matter of time
Before you make up your mind
And give all the love that you've been hiding
Its just a question of when
Told you time and again
I'll get all the love you've been denying

Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya
Sooner or later, girl you got to give in
Sooner or later, love is gonna let ya
Sooner or later, love is gonna win
Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya
Sooner or later, girl you got to give in
Sooner or later, love is gonna let ya
Sooner or later, love is gonna win

''Sooner or Later''
Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I've done a search on YouTube and found a video of Rex Smith singing "Sooner Or Later" on (and I quote), "the 1979 smash hit TV show Califgornia Fever".

It's the most obsequious video I've seen in a long while. Rex sure did give teen hearththrobs a bad name...

But anyway, it was a wild goosechase. It's not the right song, sorry.

There do seem to be a lot of songs with that title.... I downloaded quite a few from Napster way back when.

cheers
Grumpy

''Sooner or Later''
I know who it is......

This one was a doozy. I have for a number of years been trying to find who sang this song and the only lyrics I could remember was the whole "Sooner or later, you'll make up your mind" Anyway to cut a really long story short. I followed the trail to YouTube where yes the song has been covered for the Saddle Club. I then had a look at the copyright on the song and the composer was Charles Touber. I wiki'd his name and came back with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Innocents_(band). So the inncoents were a Tasmanian band that had some limited success and to quote from wikipedia
"As The Innocents they were picked up by Trafalgar Productions/RCA in early 1980 and relocated to Sydney. Here they recorded their hit single 'Sooner Or Later' which, after a performance on the TV show Countdown, peaked at number 2 nationally," Countdown was where I first heard the song. Here is the YouTube link to the Countdown episode BTW: The presenter is Rocky Burnett: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du2K81JvCbM or type in 'The Innocents sooner or later'

Good luck
