Either Bad Company by Five Finger Death Punch, or the original, Bad Company by Bad Company

Yeah, it's Bad Company by Bad Company off Bad Company. Another joke ruined thanks to Five Finger Death Punch and me being bad at jokes.

They're just a bunch of shapes. Don't read too deeply into it.

I just heard a song, man vocals, lyrics sounded kind of like "they pay their hand / to understand / how lovely it can be" and at the end there's some low key Cranberries style bellowing that I could imagine happening on an Irish hillside.

Please help

Found it from furious Googling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhJVRdf8b8k Nick Mulvey "In Your Hands"

~~**I'm Italian!**~~

Just heard a song on the radio that sounds quite a lot like a Jnsi song / A song from Sigur Ros' album Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust.
I only heard the chorus which sounded like him singing "I wanna live, oooh-ooh." Instrumentally, it sounds a lot like any song from Jnsi's solo album.
Anyone knows what I'm talking about? This was on one of Norway's most popular radio stations, and googling around for Jonsi did not help much.

Edit: after intense googling for a few minutes, I managed to find it.

I'm trying to remember a song with a kind of jazzy electronic sound, it would pop up when I listened to electroswing stuff sometimes. It wasn't in english, the chorus sounded like "jigo, hai, jigo, demo vas" and the rest was a woman going "da da da da DA da dadada". tia.

Found it! Demovast by deladap.

I'm trying to find out what this track is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjV-l2DIp-Y#t=754s

it's the hip hop style track that plays on Sal Barbiers part. The end credits claim that it's 'Swinging Fist' by 'Swat' but I've so far failed to find out anything at all. The credits are spoken by the skaters, so no ideas on spelling.
Shazam doesn't know either.

It may be hard to find. This page only briefly mentions SWAT as "bay area rap" while saying this era of videos used a lot of local artists, some of whom may never have had record deals.

Here's a post by someone else trying to find info on SWAT, with links to a few other songs that are also taken from skate videos. In fact, the only places I found people talking about SWAT at all were posts on forums in the context of "hey what's the music from this skate video", even on a forum entirely dedicated to rare vinyl. Nobody ever seemed to have any answers.

I did wonder if they were just a local band / friends of the skaters etc, I've been trying to find info on this track for years and years still got the VHS from when I bought it back in 1991

Sal himself has been active on instagram in the past couple months, there is a small chance he would be able to shed some light on it if you didn't feel like it'd be bothersome.

You could always ask H-Street themselves too as they're still about doing re-issues etc. Presuming it's just Tony Magnussen who's restarted it all. I was oh so tempted by their orange on black Hensley kingsize reissue recently, but at 100 over this side of the Atlantic I just can't.

Anyway a lot of those H-Street vids had soundtracks from local or at least unsigned bands. H-Street actually put out a CD of stuff from Shackle Me Not/Hokus Pokus, never went further than that though unfortunately. Wouldn't be surprised though if there's old demo cassettes or whatever floating around San Diego or SF or wherever the groups from. Sorry not much good for you I know but you never know what might get unearthed by somebody and chucked on Youtube or wherever..

yeah, the Hensley reissues were very tempting, but if I skated it I might as well have bought a normal board, and buying a reisuue for wall art, well I don't see the point

edit: oooh, though they are nice shapes, love a good ninties deck

good shout on the H-Street insta though, cheers.

I was in the grocery store and heard an Easy Listening/Pure Moods-ish song. I thought it might be Mike Oldfield because it had that kind of drawn out ethereal slow pop to it with male vocals. I only heard the end of it, and one of the lyrics near the end before the outro said "cannot be seen" or "can not be seen". I'm about 98 percent sure, since I was trying to shazaam and once I realized it wasn't going to work I thought "I need to remember at least one thing exactly so I can google it" and wrote down "cannot be seen". I've tried googling but there are a ton of songs with those combinations of words and none seemed right to me.

I feel like the words were long and drawn out but I don't remember the melody. It was probably something or someone who is relatively well known because it was the in-store radio and I recognized pretty much every other song.

Anyone have any ideas?

Which grocery store was it? Quite often its possible to look up in-store radio playlists for various stores.

I'm trying to find this Bireli Lagrene version of Les Yeux Noirs I used to have on one of those Gypsy Jazz Music compilations. I'm not positive it was Bireli but it was definitely extremely violin led. it had a really cool drum solo that was very brushes and bass, I think

Modernish

It seems like most Bireli versions of the song are pretty guitar-focused. Is it possible you're thinking of something like this?

Slow, if I had to guess it was made over 10 years ago. I don't remember much but it seemed like guitars or other string instruments. I kind of wrote down the lyric and forgot the details because usually if I have lyrics it's enough to google.

Trying to figure this one out. It was a 60s(?) pop-jazz instrumental, very popular, and mostly trumpet. It goes something like this:

Buh-da BAH BAH BAH DA BAH
Buh-da BAH BAH BAH DA BAH
Buh-da BAH BAH BAH DA BAH
Buh-da BAH BA DAH
