I heard a cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" at a Chipotle the other day. It seemed to be a bit slower and a lot darker, it had an almost haunting feel to it. It was really good and I have been looking all over for it but can't even find who it could be by. Please help.

BMI lists the following as having recorded it, besides Johnny Cash himself: Hoyt Axton, David Allan Coe, Ray Conniff, Little Jimmy Dempsey, Shelby Lynne, Carl Perkins, Bill Purcell, the Ray Conniff Singers.

And Wiki says this: "In 2006 Levi Strauss & Co. created three advertisements using the song, featuring cover versions by Megan Wyler and Adem Ilhan."

Dunno if this helps, but I tried.

In the liner notes, after the credits for whoever wrote the song, it should say the performing rights organisation they're a part of. For example, grabbing the nearest CD to me (which is Tori Amos' Strange Little Girls), the first credit says "New Age written by Lou Reed, published by Screen Gems EMI Ltd. (BMI)"

If you don't have liner notes, just go through and stick the person's name in all of 'em if you have to. As a kid I wondered what those acronyms I always saw in liner notes meant, and after looking them up, I realised I could see huge lists of songs that artists had written, which I found amazing for some reason.

Incidentally, as noted -- Johnny Cash's songwriting was through BMI, at least for that particular song.

Ok, I need help finding a song. I know it is an oldies type song, I only hear it on my local oldies radio station, I'm guessing 30's to 50's somewhere. I don't know the artist or title, just some of the lyrics. Part of it goes "Saturday night and I ain't got nobody, I got some money cause I just got paid. Oh how I wish I had some chick to talk to, in an awful way"

I keep hearing this about once a day on the radio at my work, and I really want to know who performs it and the song's name. Thanks.

This is Another Saturday Night by Sam Cooke. Cat Stevens covered it, too, in the 70s.

I am not a big country listener at all, but earlier today I was listening to a top 40 country type of station, and I heard one sappy sort of song talking about the little moments he spends with his wife and how it's all the little things she does that amazes him, and she doesn't even realize it. One part I remember is the wife was baking a birthday cake and burned it. It was very sweet song and I'd really like to hear it again

I cant find this song at all, but its very "militaristic" with drums and a very epic feeling. The chorus is like "I am the makings of a bomb...bang bang, bang bang". I googled those lyrics and various combinations but I cant find it at all.

This may be going out on a limb a bit, but the first thing that came to mind was Feuer Frei! by Rammstein.

The only lines I remember are "Love will make it right" and "We don't have to fight" with close to the ending being a long repeated bit ending with "Love will make it right" again. If that's not enough I can try listening to the radios again.

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"

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.

Bit of a longshot but eh, figured I'd toss that out

This is pretty vague, but it is a song that is usually put in the background of movie trailers for family-ish comedies. The most recent preview that had it that I know of is the beginning of the trailer for 'The Brothers Solomon'. It's an upbeat song and the words I think go something like "I know a place/way" and makes me think of Offspring.

I just watched a trailer for that movie, dunno if it's the same one, but the song they play is Bang the Drum All Day.

There is a song towards the end of rushmore that has been driving me crazy for years. I have listened to clips of the entire soundtrack and it doesnt seem like its even on there.

I belive it plays while Max is wearing goggles and riding around in a go cart. It only plays for a short time and the lyrics just say "you are forgiven" while high pitched voices chant "forgiven" in the background. Its a pretty upbeat song.

I'm thinking A Quick One While He's Away by The Who. It's a sort of medley song, and the last part is called "You Are Forgiven". IMDB says it's on the soundtrack, so I'll go with that.

Edit: Wiki says it's a different version of the song (the one on Rock and Roll Circus) which is actually used in the film, which may be one reason why it doesn't sound right to you.
Edit2: Beaten, but I have more info? Haha.

The song I can't ID had a man describing how he went on a date with an older woman, how they drove up into the hills about LA in her expensive car. Then the women climbs all over him while explaining some sort of life advice about relaxing and living in the moment. It was spoken word piece, maybe some singing (or more melodic speaking) on the chorus where he repeats the woman's advice. Vaguely ethereal electronica-type backing, if I recall right.

Does that ring a bell for anyone?

That would be Hey Pretty (Drive-By 2001 Mix) by Poe. The man reading is Mark Z. Danielewski (her brother), and he's reading an excerpt from his book House of Leaves.

Edit: Well, it could be, at any rate -- it's definitely the song Medium Bi is referring to.

Its a cover of "psycho killer" by Talking Heads. Its slower, I think it's acoustic, and the singer is male and sounds quite Kirt Cobain-y and grungey. It may be on a soundtrack to some film, or in an advert, because its in my head and its not something you'd hear on the radio.

Google couldn't help me

"The song has been covered by bands such as Brand New, Velvet Revolver, Rubin Steiner, Cage the Elephant, Carry The Zero, Local H, Barenaked Ladies, Phish, Antiseen, The Hypertonics, Moxy FrŘvous, Terrorvision, The Flying Pickets, Rico, The Faint, Bishop Allen, Farryl Purkiss and The Kransky Sisters, in an operatic version by Kate Miller-Heidke, and in Polish as "Psychobˇjca" by Mariusz Lubomski."

Melodic Death/Deathcore sounding

Not Killswitch Engange

Had tons of fast riffing and double bass

Has a part where the vocalist said ABSOLUTION

Had a few semi clean parts (chorus I think but maybe not)

Any ideas? I know that's super vague but the song was fairly generic.

Now, bear with me, because I haven't heard any of these songs, and I don't know that any of them qualify as melodic death or deathcore, but here are some guesses:

Trivium - "Rain"

I know some goons like classical, but this is a shot in the dark.

Back in high school orchestra we had a piece we played. The composer's name has left me, but I can still here the song in my head.

Anyways, the theme behind the song is:

You're floating down a river, and during this time the song has arpeggios going up and down. About halfway through the song, you float past a wedding on the bank and it turns from a minor key into a major key, and has really happy like music (think wedding music). After you pass the wedding, the song returns to the original river theme.


I can't for the life of me remember what this is, but it is a fairly common/popular sheet music song. Goons, help me with your collective brain power.

Every once in a while you can hear a male chorus shouting "oh!" in the background. if anyone can find this, I'd really appreciate it.

I was going to say "are you sure it wasn't "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')"?" but that's a T-Pain song mainly, so I am gonna guess Plies ft. T-Pain - "Shawty". Note that I have not actually heard this song, those are just my best guesses.

Okay, I remember hearing a song from a long, long time ago. It was kind of countryish or singer/songwriter style. The overall gist is the guy is talking to some mysterious cowboy or something. In the refrain, the cowboy tells him the meaning of life is "fast cars, cheap whiskey and easy women" or something to that effect.

I've been trying to remember/find the song for the past few days, and with what little I remember it's been really hard. Turns out there's a lot of songs about cars, whiskey and women.

It's a love song sang by a female, fairly old, say maybe 15-20 years.

Basically the chorus consists of a long "Whyyyyyyyyyyy-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhh" and then I'm pretty sure it's followed up with "did you tell me it's over?" or something similar. It's set to a really nice piano beat.
