This is a long shot, but I've been looking for a specific instrumental classical song that sounds like something between Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, but I don't think it's by either of them. It might be from a movie score inspired by Copland or Bernstein. It's got an energetic Americana/frontier feel that immediately starts off with mighty orchestral hits and the rapid clacking of a wooden percussion instrument. As far as I can remember there are no fiddles like you hear in some of the well-known Copland pieces. The distinguishing thing is the wooden clacking that's present through most of the song. It sounds like music for an Old West journey through the Rockies. I know it was used in a 1990s-era commercial in the U.S. where a train is rolling along through a picturesque landscape, but I forget the company. It might have been a retirement fund or something about fine dining on the train. This is probably not enough information to go on, but who knows?

I'm trying to remember a band, not a song. Early 90s pop but with a kind of fusion-y character. The band was mostly a collaboration between two guys and it fizzled out after around '95 or so. It had the name "fish" or "trout" or something aquatic like that. Not a very well known band, I'd never heard of them until this year.

Hi everyone,
So this song I’m not even sure how it goes but I remember it coming up on the Pandora indie rock or indie electrónica radio station. I remember it was a female fronted group with two women and the album was green and it looked drawn. I think their album either came out in 2004 or 2005. Anyway, I’m trying to remember more information. For some reason the name garden keeps popping up in my head, but idk how accurate that it.
Thanks y’all!

School of Fish..?

School of Fish was an alternative rock band which formed in 1989 and disbanded in 1994. The core members were Josh Clayton-Felt (lead vocals and guitar) and Michael Ward (guitar). School of Fish released two albums and are remembered for the hit single "3 Strange Days" (1991).

Chad Fischer went on to form the band Lazlo Bane, known for original opening credits of the TV show Scrubs. He also established himself as a record producer and composer.

This was at the end of an episode of Johnny Pemberton's podcast, it was his most played song of 2018 on Spotify. I looked through whosampled.com for both Alton Ellis - Mad Mad and Yellowman - Zungguzungguguzungguzeng but found nothing. I recorded it really crappily, this is driving me nuts:

edit: it was this

Years ago someone on here linked a video of a two-man rock band playing a slow and heavy blues rock song at some small outdoor concert. Their sound was super primitive, lots of starts and stops, no polish whatsoever. Seemed to be a small-time local band. It would be cool to hear it again.

Heard a song today that I hadn't heard in years. Indie song, female singer who is kind of sing-talking. The chorus changed after each verse (and I'm probably misremembering the lyrics) but one of them was something like "come on over baby, come on over baby baby" and another was like "we're having a party, party, we're having a party party".

Heard a bit of this at the grocery store, but could only make out a tiny bit of it before people started wondering why I was just standing there by the exit, and now it's stuck in my head.

It had a 70's-ish rock/pop sound, with a fair bit of motion and a loose style. Couldn't really make out any clear instruments but probably electric guitar. Sounded like a male singer, possibly with backup singers at the same time. I kind of thought of Boz Scaggs' "Georgia", but maybe only because of the slight similarity to what I heard.

I couldn't make out most of the words, but I think part of it went "[when/then] [you/I] realize, [that/just how much] I love[?] you/[that I'm in love with you?]." The first option is my best guess of those.

The music just before those words went up a scale (almost major but the seventh note was flat, so Mixolydian) and stopped on the seventh note. The first two notes were quicker and the rest were I think even quarter notes; possibly syncopated but again it was hard to tell.

If you listen to the first four seconds of the Mixolydian that's pretty much it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_mode. Using those notes, the rest continues "G[when]-A[you]-Bb[real]-A[i]-G[ze]" then it maybe goes back down to F at the end of the phrase. In my mind the end of it started to blend with "We Close Our Eyes" by Oingo Boingo so I'm less confident about whether I've constructed my own earworm or I'm actually recalling it properly.

Not either of these. Philadelphia Freedom is much closer in sound. I would almost be willing to say I heard 'through the eyes' as 'realize' but it's not the song I heard.

I doubt it's this, because the third note rises more than a Bb would be, but Kid Charlemagne by Steely Dan? The "Did you realize, that you were a champion in their eyes?" at 0:30:

You may also recognize this by the brilliant lyric "Is there gas in the car? Yes, there's gas in the car."

No, not Kid Charlemagne. it's a bit faster tempo than that. Also thought it could have been "Smoke from a Distant Fire" which again is close in the feel but isn't it.

I heard a track on the radio recently by a woman singing lyrics like "out of love" or "how to love" repeated three times and then followed by "I'm coming" probably three times.


Not any of these:

Indiia - Out Of Love
Cash Cash - How To Love
Tove Lo - I'm Coming
ALLY - How To Love
Alessia Cara - Out Of Love
The Buckleys - I'm Comin' For Ya
