The fragment of the lyric I recollect goes something like this:
"Old fashioned affection/Multiply that ten times ten."
(Chorus):"Times ten/Times ten/Times ten/Multiply that ten times ten."
There was also something about "exponential exploration."
Songs that were near contemporaries of the mystery work were ZZ Top's
"Legs," Chicago's "Stay the Night," and I think some of the songs
featured in "Footloose" (Denise Williams, "Let's Hear it for the Boy,"
Bonnie Tyler, "I need a Hero.").
Can anyone name the work and the artist? Full lyrics would also be
