OK, i've posted this before but never got an answer.

I heard this song on the radio sometime around 2000-2001. It had a punk poppish kind of sound. Think Nerf Herder or blink 182 or something along those lines. I know it had some lines about watching Party of five and hating Scott Wolf.

I know it's not much to go on, but i don't know who sang this song or what it was called. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I remember this too, I want to say it was American Hi-Fi or something but a search comes up empty.

In the first seen in Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj on the airplane, Taj and the blonde headed girl go into the bathroom where he pours hot sauce on himself and she licks it off, in the back round there is a rap song playing which is not on the soundtrack. I've searched for it everywhere and I cannot seem to find it, It says" slow it down now back it up, now back it up" but I can't find lyrics for that anywhere. Anyway, if someone could help me track down this song it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I heard this song on the radio a few days ago, it sounded electronic/experimental of some sort, with distorted vocals in some foreign language, maybe German. I'm quite interested to know who the artist is. Can anyone help?

I'm looking for a totally cheesy 80's(?) instrumental saxophone ballad. It's an incredibly famous song - everyone knows it. But without lyrics a Google search turns up five-billion smooth jazz songs when searching.

The memorable portion of the song is comprised of the saxophone riff, punctuated by this electronic sounding "peuuuuuu".

Here's how it sounds in my head:

"Fri nih nig, fri dih fri ne ig, fri neh neh feh der feuh der diaiaiaiaig, peuuuuu!"

Though i can't really put the riff to your version, the rest of the description makes me think it's Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street

edit: wait, Baker Street isn't instrumental. But try it anyway!

The only song from that time that was on the radio with lyrics about Party of Five that I can remember was The Bloodhound Gang - "Mope".

I'm at a loss with this one. Everytime I hear the Postal Sevice "Such Great Heights" cover by Bens Folds, it reminds me of a song from some time in the late 90's I believe. The vocalsit was a male with a high pitch voice. The only part I remember was the line "Never want to be left out". It is seriously pissing me off. Help me please you beautiful people.

Ninja edit: this is the ben folds song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4v8X_Zi-xY

The one I am thinking of has the same tempo and sound of the lyrics are almost the same. Each new line starts higher pitch then the rest of the song. Hope this helps.

The "Dee da dadda" part and the piano riff is from a Blackalicious track from their album "Nia" called "Deception" -- it's a great story song, the hook is "Don't Let Money Change Ya", if that helps you find it.

Have no idea what the vocal track is from, though.

I've got a case of malt liquor stashed in the trunk, Mr. Marvin Gaye on the CD. We are gonna get all the way down.

Ok this song has been driving me nuts for weeks. For the past week or so I was especially frustrated because I forgot how the song went completely, and all I knew was there was a song I couldn't figure out what it was. Then tonight I suddenly remembered things.

its kind of a folky classic rock song, they play it on classic rock stations quite a bit. Male singer(s?).

lyrics-wise, I'm sure these are probably no where close to how it actually goes, but its what I remember in my head (the chorus):

"lady, what you want to do,
blah blah blah so in love with you,
blah blah leave for a moment if i choose"

I'm not sure. I have a couple of their albums [and I know they have a lot more out] so I guess I could search through some lyrics or something to see if anything looks familiar. This specific recording was sandwiched in a mix between Think Tank's "Anticipatory Retaliation" and Rev Co's "We Shall Cleanse The World" so a couple beats and effects might come from them.

I hate that. I can't even really make out any lyrics to google

I have an existential map. It has 'You are here' written all over it.

Okay I'm starting to go crazy looking for who sings this song. I don't even know the words except for a rythm she does with her voice and I've seen the video. It's a good looking brunette chick that is singing in a house that is furnished with odd furniture.

she does her lines and the goes "ah ah ah ah ahhhhhheeeeaaaeeeeaaahhh ah ah ah ah ahhhheeeeeeeaaaaaeeeeahhh"


I was at the Claim Jumper and they were playing the song. I know I've heard it before and have seen the video. I also know that's the most obscure line of a song to remember but my kiddo loved the song and I want to try and find it.

It's also fairly new, like in the last 5 months or so.

'Your bum is the greatest thing about you; so that in the beastliest sense, you are Pompey the Great.'

okay quite a few songs - I thought this song was called One Cup Of Coffee but I can't seem to find it anywhere. It's quite literally about this guy and his coffee habit - begins with the lyrics....

"Starts me up, makes my day...It opens up my eyes all the way"

the chorus is

"The only way I take it is hot - now guess what I want One Cup of Coffee!"

and also includes the lines

"I count the cups of coffee consumed..in one afternoon"
I think this is late 80s pop but I could be mistaken.

The rest was on this weird compilation tape that was doing the rounds when I was in college - this would be around 1990-91. There was a song that had the lyrics

"Suffocation! It's the dawn of the crucifier"

A friend claimed this was by Slayer but it's definitely not.

The last request I have is the vaguest. I was told this was a song called Sheep Die by Treponem Pal. But the person who said that seems to have got both song and band wrong. It starts off with this ominous bassline and the faint sounds of sheep bleating and then speeds up with some rather chaotic blast beating accompanied by very weird yelling, chortling vocals. It's not the standard death grunt; just something very gurgly and disoriented.
The song then changes pace and there's a staccato riff that sounds suspiciously similar to Smells Like Teen Spirit and whenever it breaks the singer is bleating or yelling stuff that sounds like Yaaadeeeba. It then returns to the riff it started with and ends. I'd be incredibly grateful if any or all of these could be identified.

Ghost Town by The Specials.

Thank god there's one of these threads, there's a song that's been bugging me since Saturday when I heard it in a pub. Unfortunately I hardly heard any of the words since people were talking to me.
The chorus [I think it's the chorus] goes kinda like...

"[something something something]in the middle of the night.. and I know it's all right [or some other line that rhymes with night]"

And it's a very chilled-out mid-tempo kind of affair, pretty summery-sounding, reminds me a little of slower Fun Lovin' Criminals. Since I only remember a tiny piece of the lyrics and I have no idea who the artist was, it's been practically impossible to find via google.

There's this one song playing at work which has been bothering me for the past year. Searching what lyrics I could salvage on google and browsing the more popular 60s girl groups hasn't helped, either.

The store has satellite radio, and it's always tuned to the 60s/70s variety channel, which narrows it down a bit.

It sounds like a mid-60s soul/girl group song, with the female singer(s) and a chunky beat. The beat is something like four (or five) standard, then three in quick and rapid succession, and the bass and drums really kick in around the last three quick beats.

I couldn't make out most of the lyrics, save for "Don't you leave me, don't you cryyy," where the last syllable on "cry" and nearly every other line is held out for an extra four seconds. The singers are all singing in high falsetto, too.

Anybody?

This isn't exactly "help me identify a song," but hopefully someone can shed some light on this. I heard a Radiohead song on the radio ... don't remember the all lyrics, but Thom says something like 'it can be incredible,' and if I remember right, the DJ actually called the song "Incredible."

That's all well and good, but I can't find the song "Incredible" by Radiohead on songmeanings.net, I don't see it on allmusic.com, either. So I'm just curious if anyone knows the history behind "Incredible" by Radiohead or if I'm just imagining things.

Thanks!

Strictly speaking, I'm never supposed to do this. But have you got a better idea?

Hey, this is exactly what I've been looking for, I've been trying so very hard to remember, Googling lyrics, sifting through iMixes, but I just can't find the song I have running through my head and would top off my 80s playlist:

It's one of those ultimate 80s pop-dance songs (though maybe technically it's the early 90s, but when you hear it, you'd think 80s), all synthesizers, super cheesy.

Most notable feature: the synthesized voice at the end of a verse says something like (though not exact since a lyric search didn't help me) "move your body from left to right" and "(something something) broad daylight" and then a loud stab of synth.

It was probably the most popular song in the universe for some week in the 1980s, but damned if I can remember anything about it other than that little shred of music.
