I heard this great 80's pop tune on the radio the other day but have no idea what it called or who it's by. It could possibly be a german band as I was in germany when i heard this on the radio but the lyrics were in english. A female singer repeated the line "Forget me not" a bunch of times but i have searched every song with that title and couldn't find it. There was a simple drum beat and cool plastic sounding guitar riff and some synths. There was also a guitar solo. please help me as I can't get this great song out of my head.

If it's not "Forget Me Nots" by Patrice Rushen, it's probably a sample of it.

Ok this song has been driving me nuts for weeks. For the past week or so I was especially frustrated because I forgot how the song went completely, and all I knew was there was a song I couldn't figure out what it was. Then tonight I suddenly remembered things.

its kind of a folky classic rock song, they play it on classic rock stations quite a bit. Male singer(s?).

lyrics-wise, I'm sure these are probably no where close to how it actually goes, but its what I remember in my head (the chorus):

"lady, what you want to do,
blah blah blah so in love with you,
blah blah leave for a moment if i choose"

I have had a song stuck in my head and it is driving me crazy and I only have a very vague recollection of it so I hope I will be able to explain it well enough.

It's a early to mid 90's alt/rock song that seems to remind me of something along the lines of the Violent Femmes.

It carries a lot of nostalgia and the only lyrics I can remember is something along the lines of "only happy when it rains" and something about "going outside"

I google searched the lyrics and only saw something by Garbage, and that isn't it.

Any ideas?

Heard this one on a commercial the other day and it has been irritating the hell out of me since: A chicks voice saying "Forever, Forever" or something like that, I didn't hear anymore since the commercial switches to several different songs over the course of it. It sounded like a pop song, probably 80s/90s. Commercial was some hair thing or something, sorry, that is really vague but it is all I've got.

There's this dance-pop song that keeps playing at my work. It comes off kind of theatrical. The only lyrics I can remember are when the guy belts out "Allllll myyyyy liiiife". Even if I guessed that was the song title, "All My Life" is probably the most common song title in existence. I have only heard the song on my employer's pre-selected music CD, so its not exactly a popular radio tune. The song must have come out in the 21st century, as these CDs only contain new music. I know its definitely of the pop/dance persuasion and nothing incredibly obscure, I just don't know the genre very well. I can't check what songs are on each CD as the player is locked up.

I actually like it, so help if you can. Sorry the details are so lovely.

Here's a ridiculous one that's been bothering me for a good while -- it's a piano piece actually, no vocals or other instruments.

I think it played during a drama film trailer that was otherwise silent, except for the piano tune. It's fairly simple and slow (and I know I've heard it more than one place so it can't be too obscure) and its defining characteristic, at least from the part I remember, is that there are three low piano notes repeating in the background while the main melody, which is higher pitched, plays over them. It's very soothing, but the fact that it has no lyrics and I can't recall where I heard it, means that I'm stuck on its name.

This is probably not enough to go on, but I really want to hear this one again. It was beautiful

Heard this song in subway the other day, and I can't get it out of my head. I know it's from the 70's maybe early 80's for sure. Unfortunately all I caught the other day, and all I remember is the chorus at the end, which doesn't have any identifiable words except for bah, dah. The ending of the song has a male almost discoish chorus. I know it's a long shot, but I'm hoping someone might recognize this.

The end of the song just has a male chorus and goes like this (probably not even spelling it right):

Bahdahdahdah
Dah dah dah dah

Bahdahdahdah
Dah dah dah dah

Bahdahdahdah
Dah dah dah dah
Dah dah dah

Could you hum it in an mp3 or something? "Bah" and "dah" doesn't tell us much.

B - 0.25 beat
