Heard a Sting (The Police?) song at the bar, never heard it before. Funky '80s sound, totally fit my mood that night. My google-fu failing me, I turn to the wisdom of metafilter.... [more inside]

We're trying to re-discover an album, but only have a vague description of the the album cover. Does anyone recognize this?
"it was mostly instrumental music, band had an abstract name. The cover art was a faded pink and grey background with a stag disipatiung into flowers or butterflies ...I'm guess it is not a popular band"

I've only recently started listening the the Beastie Boys' Ill Communication (after picking it up damn near two decades ago), and in the track Futterman's Rule, I'm hearing what I swear is a Zappa theme, but I'm darned if I can figure out which one. I thought it was Apostrophe, but it doesn't seem to be, and Google is offering no evidence that I'm hearing what I think I'm hearing. Anyone able to identify the Zappa theme, if there is one in there? I'm going nuts.

I think it's a recent song - The chorus has has a woman singing in a simple voice. She sounds young and has a neutral accent - the non-chorus parts of the song I think is a reggae hip hop deal, but not sure. [more inside]

Name this song: female singer, sounds kinda new, on an indie radio station. Lyrics say something about "the worst" or "what's worse?" and "people say I'm _____ because I have no plans to settle down." [more inside]

Name that song! Instrumental. Very recent. Overheard on the radio and in stores/restaurants where they typically play indie/alt rock. Bouncy. Very strong bassline. Kinda reminds me of Air. [more inside]

I'm looking for a recording of a song, but I can't find it anywhere, or even who might have recorded it! In Get Up
by Chinese Man there's a sample of a song (starts about 20 seconds in). From googling the lyrics I've found the song seems to be called Lazy Lout, but that's pretty much all I can find. [more inside]

Can you identify the song containing this guitar riff? It's probably from the 1980s, recorded by some well-known rock or metal band. Here's an mp3 I made with GarageBand.

Romanian speakers, get your radio ears on.
What's she singing
? I'm trying to discern the name of this folk tune.
(nb.: Radio Romania itself is useless for this. No e-mail contact info on their Web site and no links or information to the "Skylark" radio program.)

I saw a guy with an olive green shirt that had several rifles lined up in silhouette on front. In the middle of the rifles was a pink silhouette of a guitar. The back left shoulder had a small badge that said "Music is the weapon of the future" on it. Where can I find this shirt for sale? The person wearing it said it was a gift and he didn't know where it came from.

What is the sound first heard in Lazy Lover by the Brazilian Girls (heard at a later part in the song in samples found here
)? I saw them live last night and it was, as I expected, sampled/synthesized and possibly hawaiian in origin.triggered via keyboard...
It may be a unique sound, but I could have sworn I've heard it somewhere else, and that it's a real instrument, and I associate it with hawaii for some reason.

Please help me ID this song. Very slow french duet, a coarse sounding french male voice, with a light beautiful female. They go back and forth with sentence/answer lyrics in a loving tone. Set over melodic acoustic guitar track. Vague, but it's all I got.

I bought a tape at goodwill the other day. It's in a chinese dialect and there is no english on the packaging. It's got a great Mandarin/Chinese cover of Addicted to Love
and I'm hoping you guys can help translate the artist's name, and hopefully the name of the album, too. Copyright 1987, by the way. Here's a scan of the sleeve.

Six Feet Under's third-season episode "The Trap."
What is the song Nate's singing out the car window along with the car radio as he and William Aaron Jaffe blast down the road? Ralph Covert and the Bad Examples' "Not Dead Yet"?
If not, does anyone know what it is?

Desperately seeking Eugene! I have three chilled beats dj mix mp3s downloaded freely via some designer site in 2000/2001, all "mixed by eugene". The titles of the 40 minute mp3s are "round midnight", "heavy build", and "looking forward". I can't remember if eugene is/was a pro dj or a talented hobbyist, but damn his music collection is fine, and I need more!
