The chorus of Dynamic Calories by Stephen Malkmus reminds me of some older song I can't recall.

I think it's some classic rock staple -- my first thought was Night Moves by Bob Seger. It's not that, but maybe something like it?

It's the part that goes "Times are gonna change, you will be amazed", starting around 1.02 in the video.

Thanks for all the good suggestions, but it wasn't any of those.

I knew they were on the right track, though, so I went through a classic rock playlist, including half a dozen Bob Seger songs, and I think I found the one I was thinking of:

I know I heard this song in the background of some 80s or 90s movie...only lyrics I know are:

I...
wanna know your name...

I want to say it's Alice Cooper but that's not right. It's a rock song. I can't get that 5 second clip out of my head.

Does anyone have any clue who did this specific cover of Girls Just Want To Have Fun? https://vocaroo.com/17idhTWMhbVC

I've listened to dozens, possibly hundreds of covers of the song on Spotify and Youtube and cannot for the life of me find an actual match. The mystery has been driving me crazy off and on for years.

Thanks, now you've passed the curse onto me because it sounds like it should be solvable. What accent even is that? French? Russian??

There's a particular bit of instrumental classical music that is very common to old Looney Tunes cartoons. Here's a sequence I made for it: https://onlinesequencer.net/1963974

Does anyone know the title? It's driving me nuts because you can't search online for tunes; only titles.

Didn't think I knew the name of it, just that it's the stereotypical spring song, and welp.

This isn't 'identify a song', it's 'identify a specific cover of a song'. My dad had a CD changer in his car decades ago and one of the songs was Rocky Top Tennessee. When I went to look it up recently, it turns out 1) The original version was faster than whoever was singing it on that CD song, and 2) It's been covered a LOT.

So yeah, I'm looking for a cover of Rocky Top that is 1) Sung by a male. 2) Sung with a low voice, and 3) Sung a little slower than how the song is traditionally, or originally, sung.

It's hard to judge what's considered a low voice in comparison when a lot of old timey country singers are so drat nasal.

Is it Porter Wagoner or Bill Anderson?

Here's one that's been on my mind recently... This might be vague...

It's a synthy, slightly downtempo song that every once in a while has some videogamey sound effects sprinkled in, like a mario or a sonic ring sfx. It's chill, in a major key, and the bass line iirc just bops around on quarter notes in a I-V like pattern. It's not dubstep, but it's kind of synth-wavey with a beat. Heard it again on a Tik Tok fairly recently too, but I think the song's been around for a few years.

Random guess but it sounds like it might be Dan Deacon, I guess, maybe?

Might be Charli XCX - Boys? It has a Mario sample pretty consistently throughout
