Help A Brother Out

posted by on March 13 at 13:56 PM

The song goes something like:

Making it/This time in life I’m making it. Oh oh/Oh no. Making it/This time in life I’m making it.

That is all I can remember. Who sang these words? What’s the name of the song? It was a one-hit wonder around 1980.

That was Makin It by the American Werewolf himself, David Naughton.

You'll probably remember the song more than the short-lived sitcom of the same name.

Aw, someone beat me to it.

I have the 7" single around here somewhere. It was out in early 1979 if I recall correctly. I was in 8th grade at Jane Addams Junior High.

He was in the Dr. Pepper commercials around the same time. "I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper," etc.
