Garfunkel - a funny name like that funny man's name in some song from around the same time (sixties or seventies, but it could have been a fifties song). I can't think of the name or the song, though. Anyone?

The song is called something like Callie's 'Song' (or Kallie, Kylie, Caylie etc.), or possibly Callie's Boat instead of 'Song'. I think it's Irish & it's lovely. It's about a boy who takes his little boat out on the sea - the only refrain I can recall is 'Callie loves the sea'. Thanks!

How can I search lyrics in iTunes on Windows? I used a program to automatically add lyrics to many of my songs in iTunes. Some of the lyrics now consist of things like, "These lyrics are missing. Could you please submit them?" due to a failure to automatically retrieve anything. I'd like to search for common terms and either purge the bad lyrics or move those song to a playlist where I can then run them through a lyrics cleaner. Looks like there's a few good Mac/Applescript solutions but nothing I can find in Windows.

Country Song-ID help: very little to go on. A friend was in a bar in Nashville last weekend, and wants to ID a song she heard (DJ, not live music). The only lyric she remembers is "stay off my hit list". Not much to go on, I know. I assume it's a recent song, but can't guarantee that. Googling hasn't helped. Thanks for any help you can give! Hmm..posting at 7:30 on July 3rd might not be the best idea. Oh well.
