A song of... a lifetime?

My baby is turning one next month. To mark her first year of life, I'm mashing together 365 one-second video clips (one for each day of her life). Can you help me find the perfect background song? Some criteria beneath the fold... [more inside]

What's this song? 80s pop-ish sounding, female vocalist

A tune popped into my head and it's driving me nuts. I'm pretty sure this is a relatively accurate hum. If I remember correctly, it was a female vocalist and sounded vaguely like 80s pop. Kind of Cyndi Lauper-ish? Help! SOS!

I've had this song chorus in my head since 1990. Please send help.

I went to summer camp in northern Minnesota in the late 80s/early 90s. I was exposed to all kinds of awesome music there from kids all over the country, which was a huge big thing for young midwestern me. I remember sitting on a cold lake beach listening intently to a mix tape one of the older girls was playing, and there is a song that has stuck in my head ever since. The chorus is something like "So wave goodbye to everything you knew." I can still noodle it out on piano and guitar, but I can't identify the song. Please help. [more inside]

Identify a song: like a cross between Shinedown and alt-J...

Bear with me: I haven't heard this song in a while so my memory might be off, but I think this song came out in the last year or so. Genre: alternative rock or electronic, probably indie. The instrumentation is mostly electronic, and the singer is male. What sticks out most is the chorus - the melody descends then ascends and reminds me of the chorus of Shinedown's "Second Chance". More details inside... [more inside]

Can you help me find this "Sound of Silence" cover with a female lead?

I'm looking for a "Sound of Silence" cover I used to listen to ~7 years ago. The lead singer was female. I believe the band's name started with a W. The feel of the song was largely unchanged (not a rock/metal/etc cover if I remember correctly.) Not the Nouela version that's found on Youtube. [more inside]

song filter - slow hip hop

Underground-sounding hip hop song by a black male artist. If I remember correctly, most of the song is him talking to the very simple beat. Relatively slow song, with him talking/asking questions (in a lyrical, conversational way) 6-8 syllables at a time. Probably early 2000's. I don't think it was super underground since I heard it in the gym recently. [more inside]

late 90s r&b song identification

There was a duet in the late 90s sung by r&b artists...one male, one female. Only thing I can remember is that it was a love song, it had a lot of bass and one of the lyrics was about Al Green. The singers went back and forth as if they were in a relationship, I believe. [more inside]

Is there an X-Files episode that uses a Cymande song?

Here's my possibly false memory: the show is the X-Files (although maybe it's Millennium?) and the song is Cymande's "Dove." The song recurs, diegetically, several times in the episode, whenever something uncanny is happening, although only one character is aware of it. At one point, it comes over the PA system of a hospital, distant and phased-out sounding. Googling doesn't turn up anything, so I assume I must have some detail wrong. What am I remembering?

What is being sung in this French-language song?

If any Francophones are up for a challenge: can you tell this monoglot what is being sung in The Go! Team's song Ye Ye Yamaha? (YouTube link but should also be on all the streaming services.) He wants to sing along but has to resort to garbled nonsense words. It's a fuzzy pop song with a killer catchy chorus, if that entices anyone!

What song features a chorus of "CEEEeeee JAAAaaay?"

I'm ashamed to be using a question on this, but what 70s (?) song features a chorus that is the band singing the name "CJ?" It's about a girl named CJ, I think, and all I can remember about it is that the refrain goes "CEEEEeeeee JAAAaaay." (I presumed it was called "CJ" or something similar but Google and Rdio fail me.)

Who is the Senegalese musician in the video in the Field Museum?

When I was on vacation in Chicago last year I stopped by the Field Museum and happened to catch a video in the Senegal exhibit of a musician playing and singing a song that I thought was really beautiful. I recall that he was playing the kora and that the lyrics pertained to a shaman or similar person. I have tried looking on the Field Museum website and sending them an email but no dice so far. Does anyone know who is in the video and/or the name of the song?

Help me identify this song based on the melody

What is the 80s or 90s pop song with a similar melody to the one in Super Freak/Can't Touch This? It sounds like the same intervals, but sung with the "words" da-dee-day-doh. I want to say it could be from the UK, possibly somewhere else in Europe. I think the album cover is black and white and could be a picture of people walking. Sorry for how vague this is! Any ideas?
