I'm looking for a hiphop song that I think is fairly well known, and has a strong guitar sample going in the background. A sort of continuous "chic-ka chic-ka chic-ka", really twangy. Maybe from... end of the 90s?
Very vague, but could it be Quannum - I changed my Mind?

That's not it, hmm yeah I guess this is a little vague. The guitar part is a steady strumming, not a riff like in the Quannum track. It would have definitely got airtime on MTV or MuchMusic. It's possible it's a canadian group. I'm trying to check some clips from the rascalz and kardinal offishall, but no luck yet with what I've found.

Honestly, the thought I keep having is the Busta Rhymes song he did with Janet Jackson. This one. I can't think of anything else getting airplay at the time with the porn wah-wah action happening.

Edit to add: Something of my own here -- Remember that horrible Peter Gunz track "Uptown Baby"? What's that sample from anyways? It's obviously just a jack, and I love that beat, but can't stand the song, so I'd like to know where it came from.

You're both fuckin' banned!

This is a hell of a long shot, but here goes:

In the summer of 2005 I was staying in Canada and there was a commercial for Wal-Mart (I think) that was on TV every other minute. It may have been shown in the States, too-- I'm a Brit so I don't know. The commercial was animated, very stylised, and had lots of kids skateboarding or something. It was all quite slick and aimed at a teenage demographic I guess.

Anyway. It had an awesome song over the top of it. Some riff-driven guitar rocky number, with some singing that came in just before the ad finished, I think. I remember at the time hitting up all the "what's that song used on that advert" sites to no avail, and from time to time I still try. I guess it's possible it wasn't for Wal-Mart because all the other ads I've seen for it in my Youtube searches have been really lovely. Does anyone have the faintest clue what I'm talking about?

edit: demographic is not the same word as democratic :(

After a bit of searching, Wikipedia's article on deja vu tells me it contains samples of Steely Dan's Black Cow and Jerry Rivera's Amores Como El Nuestro. Not sure which would be the one you're looking for. EDIT: Definitely the Steely Dan song after checking.

Oh drat, this is gonna bother me for a while because I can see the commercial in my head and hear the song but can't for the life of me remember enough to go searching. Though something makes me think it wasn't Wal-Mart.

That damn green thing

I need help identifying an Ozzy Osbourne song. I didn't get the chance to hear virtually any of the lyrics, and what little I did hear was muffled by the retail environment I work in. What I do remember though is the long guitar solo at the end that has a melodic structure that sounds almost exactly like the refrain from "I Will Survive" by Aritha Franklin. Sorry that that is so little to go by.

While that is very little to go on, I'm assuming I can narrow it down to Ozzy songs that get radio play, and I therefore have a hunch that it might be Mr. Crowley because it's the only one that springs to mind with a long solo at the end and I can sort of see the "I Will Survive" comparison.

Also I Will Survive was Gloria Gaynor not Aretha

EDIT: Sorry that's a pretty poor quality video.

Okay, I will be totally blown away if anyone can help me with this.

Sometime in the early to mid 1990s, I heard a Christian album with a country feel, and I can't remember the name of the artist or the titles of any songs. The singer's name was Gordon (something) or (something) Gordon; the only song I recall from the album had something to do with Gabriel's Trumpet (and that may be the title of the song, I don't know).

It's driving me absolutely insane. I've googled and wiki'd and searched newsgroups to no avail. Please, end my torment?

I saw them on a newer Sprint commercial. It has a guy and a girl on stage, the girl is playing a keyboard and the guy is on the drums (I think). The commercial has people holding up cell phones and says something like "Your world is wireless blah blah".

Does anybody know if this is a real band, and if so, who they are and what the song is?

Ok, I've heard this song on the radio recently, but I think it is an older song (they play it on oldies or classic rock stations and it was followed up by Eric Clapton once). It is instrumental and is like classical Latin acoustic guitar with some 1/16 clapping at one point. Again, it is instrumental and is a classical Latin (rumba flamenco?) song.

Primary instruments involved that I've picked out:
-2 acoustic guitars
-hand drums
-clapping

I can't find it right now, but I'm almost positive that this song is off an album called "Friday Night in San Francisco" by Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, and Paco De Lucia, mostly because those are the only instruments used in those songs. Even if I'm wrong, you should check this out in case you liked the song you described.

Happy Sock posted:

All right, NMD, help me out here. I've had the tune of this song in my head but can only remember a little bit about it. I wrote it down on a piece of paper which fell out out my pocket at some point.

The only thing that I can explicitly remember about the song is that it's about this girl that's pleasuring herself in the bathroom. It's not like a "haha that's funny" but sort of "oh no that's kind of sad." It might be popular right now, I heard it on the radio.

Anyways, it was a really good song and I'd like to check out more by the same artist, but I cannot remember who they are!

Could it be "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls?

This is a really obscure request. I'm from Manchester but I live in Japan and often when I meet housewives in their 40s or 50s they have on many occasions tried to start singing a song to me that seems to have the lyric 'Manchester and Liverpool' but that's all they can remember and they just lah lah after that. They always try to tell me its by The Beatles but I'm pretty sure it's not. I have 2 possible clues although they may end up being red herrings..

1. One student told me the reason no one knows any more than the Manchester and Liverpool part is the song is actually in French and so of course the students couldn't understand French so don't know it.
2. Another student claimed one of the lyrics was 'kemuri tanabiku machi yo' 煙り棚引く町よ which translates to smoke trail town.

I googled for the second one but found nothing, if anyone could help me out here I'd be very happy.

I want to know what is the name of the song that plays very briefly when they are about to have like an awkward/intimate moment (and people are holding up lighters), all you hear is the guitar playing a calm part of the song. What's the name of that song?

To be honest, it's probably not a Zeppelin song at all, for copyright reasons or whatever. I may be wrong, but I think That 70's Show has done that before on a couple of occasions. I don't have the DVDs to hand at the moment, so I can't even check right now.

Edit: from that link...

-

This is driving me nuts, because I KNOW it's something I have, but haven't listened to in a year or so.

It's a rock song, maybe prog, probably late '60s or early '70s that has sort of a dirgelike tempo, and the only lyric I recall is the repeated line "oh... by... jiiiiiingo" sung like that, perhaps by a children's chorus.

Also, a different song that I actually really dislike, but I'm curious what it is all the same. Probably a very popular song, as I've heard it many times on the radio, sounds like your average late-'90s radio-friendly rock. The most commonly repeated lyric I'm almost positive is "it's in your heart, it's in your head" or "I stay in your heart, I stay in your head" but it comes out sounding like "a-stinninyerr harr, a-stinninyerr hehr"

No, not at all. Should have specified that it's a male vocalist who pretty much sounds like the prototypical alternative rock vocalist, and slurs his words. I wish I could say who it specifically sounds like, but it's too indistinguishable in my memory. It's not a heavy song... something like grunge-influenced acoustic pop. Absolutely inoffensive. It might even be Dave Matthews Band... I couldn't really say, as I only definitely know one song by them.

It's not "Love Like Winter" by AFI, is it? Beginning of the chorus is "It's in the blood / it's in the blood / I met my love before I was born" but the first time I heard it I wasn't sure what they were saying. Might be way too recent, but it WAS a single.

This a repost from the other thread. I'm posting it here because this one seems to be a bit more active, and because it came into my head again and it's driving me loving crazy.

I'm pretty sure it was called "Dig It", or something along those lines. The chorus was the words "Dig It" over and over again (I think). The artist was a guy, rather than a band (in name at least, there was a whole band playing in the song). It was a simple guitar riff, sort of blues-rock sounding. I seem to remember the music video having something to do with a fly, flying around while the band was playing. This would have been sometime between 1998-2002.

I don't even think it was a particularly good song. I just want to know what the gently caress it is at this point.

One person suggested Dig In by Lenny Kravitz, but it definitely isn't that. Whoever it is, I haven't come across their name recently from what I can tell.

There's a song that I've heard is by Joe Strummer, but I can't find the name of it anywhere. It's mostly instrumental, although it repeats a yelled "Hey You!" every so often. It's ska-ish, of course, and super bouncy and happy. A friend gave it to me on a mix and it was titled as a WWE wrestler's entrance music (Brian Kendrick), but I'd rather not label it as such. Any clues? I've tried Googling a lot of times, but I think I just don't know where to look.
