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.)

What song did I just hear? Who sings it? "For tonight I say goodbye"

Alternative/rock song, a guy with a deep voice singing, kind of slower than a typical indie song, it sounded a bit depressing. The singing was kind of muffled but the only lyrics I heard clearly in the chorus were "for tonight I say goodbye" and the very last line of the song was "For tonight I say my last goodbye" and he kind of slowed down for the very last line.

Looking for a song

I listened to a song sometime in the last year that was titled "The (something), the (something) and the (something) (or something very close to this). One of those somethings was "Law" and pretty sure the other somethings were somehow related. It was a rock song, but I don't know when it was released, but seemed < 15 years old. Ring any bells?

Metal-ish cover of Rasputin that ISN'T Turisas?

Hi AskMe. I'm losing my mind. I heard a cover of the Boney M disco song Rasputin on Pandora a few years ago. It came up in rotation a few times, but I can't find a version that matches the one I recall, either on my channel thumbs-up songs or on a Pandora song title search. I can't find it Googling 'Rasputin cover.' It's not the Turisas version, but it's similar. [more inside]

Help identify this funk tune

My SO heard this song on a DJ mix years ago and has been trying to find out the title/artist ever since. We’ve Googled the lyrics and tried to identify it using Shazam, but have had no luck. He’s uploaded a clip of it here. Since this was taken from a mix, it might be played back at a different pitch than it was recorded at. Can anyone identify it?

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?

What's the name of this song?

I feel as though I've heard this song in many places, but its lack of lyrics have made it difficult to search for. I've most recently encountered it in an episode of Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends. I suspect that it might be by Esquivel like the show's opening theme, but I haven't been able to find it based on that alone. This has been driving me crazy!

Morbidfilter: What Jazz greats should I see live...before they die?

So I was lucky enough to see Ray Charles before he died at the Hollywood Bowl. And Sarah Vaughn at the Blue Note in the 80's. And Ella at Radio City around the same time. But I never got to see Sinatra. Or Sammy. Or Nina Simone. Largely because I couldn't afford it. So now it occurs to me I can. And Southwest tickets aren't that expensive if I want to go anywhere in the US. So who should I see among the greats - who are still out there playing - before it's too late?

Navigating Tom Waits

Songs that make you grit your teeth and kick life in the ass

Pretty straightforward, really. What are your favorite songs that speak to grappling with real, significant struggles, keeping your head up, continuing to fight and plug along? Songs that say "things will get better" without minimizing the depth of the current pain? Songs that give you a burst of fight and grit when you're feeling helpless? Not relationship-specific. I've been listening to "Ooh Child" and of course the classic Tupac - any genre welcome.

What is the song in the new Jeep Commercial, September 2014?

The song has been stuck in my head - I believe it is a Michael Jackson song (it is NOT, I repeat, NOT "Love Never Felt So Good"). I can't seem to find it on YouTube or ISPOT, but it shows people doing "autumn" outdoor activities in various Jeep models. One of the scenes is a pick-up game of football lit by the headlights of two Jeeps.
