help find a song

Looking for a song for our Wedding! I have tried the hum to identify sites, and googled like crazy with no luck. The song is new (2011) and "car commercial popular". It has no lyrics and sounds kind of like something Sigur Ros would do. I know this offers nothing, but it is like, "Ahhhh, ummmmm, aaaaaaa uuuuu". It heard it on the radio, an "alternative" station. Its starts slow and builds (all songs I guess), and is quite emotional. Men are doing the vocals, and my last little evidence is that on the movie, If a Tree Falls, toward the middle they play a short segment of a song that sounds identical to the band in question but not the song. I check every song on the credits but it is definitely not there. Thanks all!

Last year she asked for a dragon scale...

My daughter has asked Santa for a "rubber pound coin" for Christmas, and with the delightful phrase of "Santa can get anything" we can't find anything in the UK. I'm open to suggesstions, with the caveat I'm a bit useless at arts and crafts, [more inside]

Shoes

I want to buy a pair of Vibram Five Fingers for a female. She wears a size 7 to 7.5. The VFF size conversion chart only goes as low as size 8 1/8. WTF am I supposed to do with that? Ladies, do any of you have a size 7-ish foot and wear VFF? If so, what size fits best for you? Looking at the Classic style.

Tactful CV help.

A friend of mine who is an intelligent, hard worker, is looking for a job. She's been applying for a while, and I was truly surprised that she hasn't had an offer yet (academic post-docs) - until I saw her CV/ resume. It is not at ALL well-written. [more inside]

Whats the time? Well let me see here...

I'm looking for a new watch. My current watch is a Lorus Fusion 7T92-X001 as pictured here, and I'm very happy with the look of it (its a lot more silver looking than that picture implies). Mostly it seems to have an organic flow to the look of it which I like, its not chunky or anything like that. However all the knobs have stopped working, I can't change the date/time, the pins keep breaking, and the cost to repair seems inordinately high, perhaps its time for a new watch. Can anyone have a look at that and pick something they think I might like? Don't worry about cost or anything like that :) Thanks!
