    Ah, now it´s clear!

 

    Problem was not in Natileite or The Carpernters themselves, knowing that was their Lyrics now, I got these in lyrics´ sites:

   Maybe there is an explanation to that one, it´s because the listener tought it was a "silent" verb, one that gets ED in the end but it sounds like the verb in pure form (aka bare infinitive.)   So, more than one got the lyrics wrong.

 

+++++++++++++++++

   As Orlando pointed out, in the case:

   "If I had listened to the radio when I was young I would have listened to that song too."    (Se eu tivesse escutado o rádio quando eu era jovem, teria escutado essa música também.)

 

   It would have the HAD because there two actions happened (two verbs), whereas in

"When I was young I used to listen radio.", it wouldn´t because there is only one verb.

 

 

   The use of  I´d  was another contributing factor to think that HAD was in the sentence...it wasn´t.       "I´d"  meant "I WOULD".

   Obrigado, Orlando.
