Are you sure it wasn't the Tourists' version of "I Only Wanna Be With You"?

No, it resembled the style of Dusty Springfield, but not really the melody. I was able to catch that it was almost certainly 1970s in fact, it was Sirius '70s on 7'. I don't know if they publish playlists, but it would have been this Sunday ~ evening UTC.

So I heard a song too far away to Shazam this morning; the chorus consists mostly of the word "please" in a drawn out, harmonized falsetto by a male singer. So more like "Pleee-EEEeeEEEeeeEEeeaaase"--the capital Es being sung higher. It was in the style of like, a Frankie Valli song? Probably wasn't actually Frankie Valli, I just got Who Loves You vibes from it

The only other lyrics I could hear were something like "I want you, I need you" right before the last chorus but the number of songs that include all three of those lyrics make trying to Google it useless

I would maybe say something like Touch Me in the Morning (or something else from Diana Ross/Supremes), but that's just a guess based on female Motown acts in the 70s that weren't all disco.

You can use this site to see recently played songs on the '70s on 7 station, but they're only listed by "x days ago" and not time. So you'd have to do some scrolling and hopefully remember something else that was played around the same time.

Alright, so, I downloaded a midi off a website way back in 2002, and I've been trying to figure out what it is ever since. I checked the metadata recently, but it doesn't tell me anything other than the star theme is supposed to be vocals, so I'm fairly sure it's a band song, but it might be from an anime or video game??? I honestly don't know. Now I've got some friends going crazy trying to figure it out, too.

I exported the midi to mp3 here.

In midi form it sounds extremely Mega Man X-ish but I doubt it's that tbh

A slight bit of it sounded like the chorus to Night Ranger's Don't Tell Me You Love Me, which is a similar length. The beat doesn't seem to match elsewhere, though.

This got it for me, since I knew that 'Me & Julio Down by the Schoolyard' played some time after it.

The song is "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" and the style is a not quite as Motown as I thought it was. Also, many of the singers were men as well.

e: That midi song sounds like it could be Styx, but Night Ranger seems close too. Definitely of that era or a throwback to it.

Was the singing and/or general vibe of the song anything like this? Or am I totally off on the style/era?

Chris Isaak's "Somebody's Crying" maybe?

Do The Brown Nose

I'm trying to remember an album from around 2005 to 2007 at the latest. It's sort of dreamy, washed out electro indie pop. The band name started with a W, and one of the songs on the album had the word "Jupiter" in it. They weren't very popular, but I rediscovered them a few years ago (and have since forgotten their name ) and they had a bandcamp page, so they're at least still semi-active. Any help is greatly appreciated.

They sounded vaguely like this, except with a male singer:

Edit: This was driving me nuts, so I dug out my ancient iPod and found it was the album Heavensville by Wedge.
