I've had something shoegazey with a female voice stuck in my head for a couple days, parts of the lyric are, "lie to me, lie to me".

I was thinking Low but I'm not sure any more.

e: it was Devics, the song is funnily enough called Lie to Me

Salt in the wound eases the soul.

I have gotten the melody of a song from maybe six years ago stuck in my head. It was a really sugary EDM/trance song which I remember being called "Beautiful", but that is impossible to search for. I remember the lyrics going something like "something, something you and me together something, something you and me forever". The vocals being pitched higher.
I tried to whistle the main hook/melody as well. This is driving me crazy.

The lyrics immediately make me think Bronski Beat, but that's off on a few other counts.

e: oh the song itself is from six years ago, you didn't just hear it six years ago? Yeah probably not it then. Maybe a remix but more likely something else altogether.

Here's one that's been bugging me a little. Sadly, I don't remember much of the song at all, more the fairly-unremarkable music video. Mid- to late-eighties type indie, band full of well-scrubbed pale dorks, playing out of what looks like a well-lit dance studio with a sunny garden just out the windows.

I couldn't find a thread for this but I need to identify what the (repeating) lyrics are to this one song: Fact or Fiction by Beatamines

I've listened to this song from time to time for literally years and could never figure out what he says. Friends too. Maybe we're just deaf. Please give me the relief I need - thanks.

I'm looking for a song with an electrohouse sort of vibe, probably about 10 years old. 125 BPM. The first verse has a guitar tone a lot like the tonite only remix of 'Pictures' by sneaky sound system, also reminds me of No more conversations by Freeform five.

Here's the chord progression and a go at the (female) vocal line:
https://vocaroo.com/i/s0WG26xEW4yO

The little run at 0:27 is salong the lines of "don't you go away with another" (or 'brother' or mother'!) but otherwise I can't remember any of the lyrics at all.

I have two that I'm trying to figure out:

The first is somewhat well-known and I know I've heard it quite often, but never knew the name. It's from the 70s or late 60s at earliest, kind of a soul sound with an upbeat, positive vibe. My only clue is that the melody reminds me a lot of "The Muffin Man" (kid's song) if it were something like "Do you know the muffin man, the muffin man?" To clarify those aren't the lyrics at all, just the rhythm and almost the melody. I think the actual lyrics about peace or love or something similarly socially positive.

The second is maybe more obscure but probably more recent; I heard it at a cafe near a university. It was 5 notes repeated Philip-Glass style (electronic tones like a piano), and a female vocalist, but it wasn't clear if she was singing a cohesive song or just phrases. I thought it was the sound system but I think her voice is intentionally mixed to be difficult to hear. I think some of the words might have been 'you can go home' or 'you can go on' but I'm pretty shaky on it.

Some redditor had the same question, and it was The Spinners, Rubberband Man, which has similarities in both lyrics and melody.

This sounds a lot like EMA, she has many songs that fit that bill from her last couple albums.

"The Rubberband Man" was exactly it. Never knew it was just about a guy who's going to play the rubberband for you.

No, and not EMA either. What I heard was much more minimalist. EMA is close for the voice, but all the songs I've found from her have too much noise/fuzz in them to be it. The five-note pattern was repeated for at least a minute or more and likely the entire song.

Alright, this has been driving me nuts. At my workplace we have ISAN aka ISBN, InStore Audio/Broadcasting Network. As one would expect, I hear the same songs constantly. Usually if I don't know an artist or whatever I can just Shazam it without an issue since it mostly plays top 40 and stuff like that. But this one song I hear multiple times a day every day I haven't been able to figure out. I can make out the lyrics just fine, I've googled and I get nothing besides unrelated stuff (and another person trying to figure out what the song is). The other day I managed to record part of it: https://vocaroo.com/i/s1HejCuFTbtX

It's up to me to figure it out
Writing the story about
How girl meets world


As you can imagine if I google this I get pages and pages about the tv show. Shazam knows nothing. This song is in my head constantly too fml

Man, I googled that just out of curiosity and only found a post from someone asking about the same lyrics playing at a Walgreens in 2015. I went a few pages ahead and didn't see a response.

My question, hopefully this link carries over as its a facebook video and I haven't done any linking of those before. Sounds like a Hans Zimmer track, very familiar but Shazam doesn't recognize it.

I didn't find it in a quick scan, but maybe the "Girl Meets World" one is in this soundtrack to Barbie: The Princess & Popstar?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3veU7Ctne1Y

Not quite the same singer on the songs I heard, but close in style. Maybe another one of those movies has it. I doubt the lyrics would be posted.

More of the lyrics are:
-ready for the big world,
Oooh, I'm excited, get ready for this girl
'cause here I go!
['Let's go, the ??'s in my ?? or 'It's time to live in my head?']
It's up to me to figure it out...

Honestly, it sounds to me like your stereotypical Radio Disney type song, so it wouldn't surprise me if it was from the soundtrack to a kids' movie. It's just so weird, I literally hear this song multiple times a day every single day at work.

The part with ??? is "the pen's in my hand" btw, I'm pretty sure, going with the "writing the story" a couple lines later.

Edit: I gave in and emailed the network that does our music. I'm not expecting to hear back, but what the hell.

Looking for a song that sounds exactly like Separate Ways by Journey. I have a co-worker that thinks that Journey song was in a movie from the 80s. The more I think about it the more I think hes right. We might be both witnessing some Mandela Effect though. Or can someone identify the movie if were actually right?

We think it was in a sort of sports training montage, similar to a Rocky scene.

The problem is Separate Ways is one of those songs people think is in every 80s movie because it just has that sound, even though near as I can tell it wasn't used in any 80s movie. Google autocomplete suggests people search for Rocky, Karate Kid, and Footloose.

You probably already know the real songs for the first two (Eye of the Tiger and You're the Best Around), but maybe you're thinking of Moving Pictures - Never from Footloose?
