But I can't find any information on google about it. It has a prominent flute part and there's parts where the person (I think male) doesn't sing so much as talk in a cadence. It's been on the radio recently. That's all I can remember at the moment.
There's a song called "Spill The Wine" that fits that description and I'm pretty sure that that's the song you're talking about. I was watching Remember the Titans last week or so and it's in there and it's credited as Eric Burdon & War.
Yep. The flute is playing in the background while the guy talks about being "a leaping gnome as the star of a hollywood movie" and stuff like that. There's also a woman yammering incessantly in Spanish in the background.
It is indeed "Spill The Wine" I love that song. The beat of the song makes you feel like you're walking down the street on a beautiful summer day just checking stuff out.
