I do hear what you're talking about in Uprising and I can kinda hear the structure in R U Mine, too.


Holy hell, that is really similar.

This DID spark my memory though and I'm pretty drat sure the song I was thinking of was If by House of Heroes. Which, now that I've listened to it, doesn't sound that similar, but the structure of the intro is what stuck.

Thanks for the help, both of you!

There is also System Shock by Hardwire. Great song that has a similar groove. It is pretty obscure (I liked them before they were cool), so probably not the one you are thinking of:

Okay so.. I am trying to find a song based on a youtube music video I had seen. I think it was from the EDM/House thread. ive dug around trying to find it..

The group was European, maybe Swedish.. Nordic.. newer music video

The standout scene I remember was on a bridge, the singer is walking on a bridge (large covered highway bridge) singing. its dark and brooding and flamboyant. might have been an SUV driving.. its dark and brooding. "edgy"

gently caress I cant think of any specific lines.

its so vague.

This certainly isn't it (it sounds like you want something slower and moodier), but it is electronic, non-English artist, under a covered bridge, dark and edgy.

There have been a couple commercials during the Superbowl (not sure what for) that have a acapella female vocalist covering parts of Take Me Home Country Roads. It is very slow and moody. Any idea who she is?

what's the rap song that goes Ride Till I Die but it lingers on the lyrics

riiiiii uh uh iiiidde till i diieeee uh uh iiieeeee

it's more like a chorus line i think. Think it's like 15-20 years old by now?

Brandi Carlile, and the commercials were for the CBS show Clarice.

It's not cute. It's all very serious.

I've got a doozy and I'm going crazy not being able to find it.

I found this off an old thing back when Limewire was still a thing. It was (probably erroneously) on a GWAR discography, but I've looked through their entire catalogue and have not located it.

Singer sounds like Dave Brockie, though I'm about 90% certain it's not.
The opening guitar riff is pretty straightforward and features really heavy distortion, 0 - 0 - 3 - - - 0 0 0 - 2 - 1 - (each being a sixteenth note) BPM around 85-90.

It's vaguely metal, but nothing really heavy. It sounds like it would be fitting on a White Zombie album (probably the groove-metal bit, not so much the noise rock).
The quality of this is really fuzzy, almost like it was recorded on a walkman.
I wish I had any of the lyrics, but I don't.

and if it's a lie, terrorists made me say it

I can’t remember this song for the life of me, and I’m starting to think I made it up.

It’s kind of an alt-rock song with spoken word narration. It’s NOT Nada Surf’s “Popular,” but it has kind of the same vibe.

The lyrics talk about a popular girl in high school and the boy she dated, and I THINK the song ends with one of them dying in a car crash? The lyrics were really detached and ironic, with the narrator saying things like (paraphrasing): “because they were both reasonably popular and traveled in the same social circles, it was accepted by their peer group that they would eventually hook up.”

Any help would be appreciated.


Edit: complaining on the internet works! I found it like ten minutes later: “Teen Love” by No Trend. I got the alt-rock part confused with Nada Surf, but the rest was on point.

I've got a real weird one and I don't have much to go on. A friend of mine made me a mix CD back in the early 2000s that had three or four songs from a group that was:

- Two or three women vocalists, singing in either Russian or Ukrainian with lots of harmony
- An acoustic guitar

And I'm fairly sure that was it. The songs were a mix of upbeat songs and slower ballads. They definitely weren't rock songs but also weren't really what you find if you search for Russian folk music, per se. I'm fairly sure she gave me the CD in 2005 or so, so the album they're from had to be from then or earlier, but given the quality of the recordings I think they had to be relatively recent.

If anyone here has watched Judas and the Black Messiah yet, can you tell me what song is playing when Bill is driving around in the car he just got from the FBI? I feel like I know it from a sample and not the original song, but it could be both.

EVERY FAIRY TALE NEEDS ITS HERO.



Artist not song: early/mid-90s alt-rock/folk-punk/anti-folk singer/songwriter who was very young compared to his contemporaries, maybe 14 years old? I think maybe had one bigger song and didn't really reach the mainstream outside of that.

Hopefully that's not ultra-vague.

Not a song, but an album.

in 1995 or so I had a compilation CD of either dance music or workout jams.

This remix of N-Trance's version of Stain' Alive was track 1, I'm fairly certain. I know it was on there somewhere.

So was a remix of Sade's And I Miss You

Sounds like Ben Lee, who was 14 when he started, had a minor hit on Grandpa Would, and was otherwise mostly known for dating Claire Danes and writing a song about doing acid with her

This feels like the best thread to ask this:

Nirvana's lyric "It's okay to eat fish, because they don't have any feelings".

I swear, absolutely swear, that line was based on a Berenstain Bears book, which I saw with my own eyes, where it was explained to the kids that the Bears were vegetarians except for fish, who it was okay to eat because they didn't have feelings (or words to that effect)

Google is making me think I'm insane because I'm finding no mention of this connection

Near as I can tell, Sade has never done that song. It's a very common mislabeling (old school Napster style) for the Everything But the Girl song Missing (usually referring to the Todd Terry club mix).

Top Hits 95 Vol 4 is a compilation album with the N-Trance song as track 1, but Missing isn't on it. Top of the Pops 2 has both tracks on the second disc, but neither are the opener. They also both appeared on Dance Mix UK, but they're on separate discs.

Edit: thanks to this article, I learned it was Deep Gully by the Outlaw Blues Band, sampled Cypress Hill on When the poo poo Goes Down.

It wasn't. I ended up looking up them and Death Piggy, since they were related. This track is a lot slower and much more groove-focused than anything on this album.
