What is this song? All I have trapped in my head is a fragment that goes "Never gonna happen, never gonna happen; never gonna happen, never gonna happen." starting out at a high pitch and progressively getting lower; the first syllable of the word never in the first and third repetition of the phrase are stretched out. Googling it is getting me songs that are not this song.
In the late 90s to early 2000s, I found on Napster a techno (possibly trance?) song which had a quote from Carl Sagan's "Contact". It was not a sample from the movie. This dialogue does not appear in the movie. [more inside]
I have this nagging (yet unfounded) feeling that the lyrics in this song are referencing something that I should get, but I don't. Lend me your ears. [more inside]
I'm hoping someone can identify a mid-90s hip-hop track, which for a long time I assumed was by Thirstin Howl III, but now I'm not so sure. The only thing I recall, other than the rapper having what I would characterize as a laconic flow, is a line that rhymed Brooklyn Dodger with Joe Cocker. I distinctly remember the second part of this rhyme being delivered in a sing-song, "I la da da da da like Joe Cocker". (Literally la da da, not a placeholder for something I don't remember.) So, pretty specific right? Anyone?
What words are the chorus singing beginning here in Knee Play 4 of Philip Glass's “Einstein on the Beach”? Alas much googling has failed me.

Music filter - heard a song I liked and only caught snippets of the lyrics, "winter wonderland", "wanted to hold your hand", and "beers". Help?! [more inside]
Please help me identify this song from almost no information at all. [more inside]
[Geezer Filter:] Help me dredge up the name of a rock ballad from around 1969-1970? [more inside]
Help sought in identifying the song. Trip-hoppy, moody backing track with a male spoken sample saying: "Don't cry. You're gonna be a big man someday. This is a new dawn!" [more inside]
What are the words to this Sesame Street Song? - We hear "Everybody loves [something], as sure as [something] loves [something], and googling for lyrics isn't helping fill in the blanks.
Another "what's this song?" question. Google-fu and music search engines failed me. Lyrics that I can remember of it are inside. [more inside]
Help identify an awesome blues song sung by two guys. It is performed by two men, the harmony resembles Taj Mahal's Queen Bee (and he may be one of the performers, but I couldn't identify the song by looking at his discography). I remember some of the lyrics... [more inside]
Last night I saw Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Scout Niblett was supporting. They sang a beatiful duet, a call and response about her love being like a pine tree, and then like a willow, and an oak etc. Anybody know this song? Thanks in advance.
