REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED WITH PEDAL STEEL

We got Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats, we got Dixie Chicks' Goodbye Earl; I would like more suggestions of country songs sung by ladies about exacting revenge or just seriously fucking up some no-good man.

Song ID: something about liking/not liking popcorn?

It's sung by a woman in some kind of retro rock-y style that I can't quite articulate. It's a list of foods that girls either.. like or don't like, and the chorus is about popcorn.. I think.

Settle a trivial question, New York New York, or New York New York?

There may be no way to resolve this question (and it's not one of the great mysteries, I'll admit), but I'll take a majority consensus if that can be achieved. In the song, "New York, New York", is Sinatra effectively singing, "New York (City), "New York (State)", or is he singing, "New York (City), New York (City)"? My belief is that if the song were about, for example, Chicago, Sinatra would sing, "...I want to be a part of it, Chicago, Illinois", however I've encountered more than once the opinion that it would be equivalent to "...I want to be a part of it, Chicago, Chicago". What says the Hivemind?

Trippy music video featuring a train with special effects?

I'm trying to find a trippy music video featuring a train. The whole video follows the train for the most part. As the music gets more elaborate, the train gets a bunch of effects including changing its color and brightness. Another music video by the same band involved a fake PSA or television broadcast that devolves into a song. Does any of this ring a bell? I think the band was electronic, but don't quote me on that.

Seeking music recommendations!

I tend to love specific songs rather than whole albums. My taste isn't hugely eclectic— I guess I lean towards melodic music, mostly folksy, some classical. I'm partial to hamonies, to the violin, to women's voices, and perhaps to melancholy music! I'm looking for new music and it's been a while since I found anything new I loved. Help me with recommendations—more details inside. I'd be absolutely thrilled with recommendations of specific songs from unexplored genres that I might enjoy. I'd also love any insights on the sort of music I seem to enjoy. [more inside]

Identify old guitar

Hello , can you please help me finding out more about this old guitar. I think it might be a Jazz guitar, my grandpa bought it second hand around 1958. If you read closely on the neck it says "Trademark Clove" and something else unreadable. Here is a couple of images: Guitar 1 Guitar 2 Guitar 3 Guitar 4 It is still playable and sounds good to.

Musical Seattle Wedding Gift?

My cousin is getting married in a couple of weeks on the east coast. I'm traveling there from Seattle. Both bride and groom (my cousin is the groom, if that matters) are active musicians in the Boston scene. I don't know them very well. They're in their mid 30s and were impressionable teenagers when grunge was just becoming an enormous deal. I was thinking they might appreciate a small wedding gift that had something to do with Seattle's musical history, but I myself am not very familiar with it all, with what's actually cool and what's just tourist junk. My budget is less than $50 (less would be better) and I need to be able to fit it in my suitcase and have it be modest looking at the wedding itself. My cousin plays guitar, drums, is a lead singer, and writes lyrics as well as music. His genre, as far as I can tell, goes around a central pillar of "rock". I'm looking for a token kind of gift. They have a registry but also stipulate they don't need or require gifts multiple times, it's going to be a super small wedding and I'm not sure I'm even going to be at the ceremony itself. Just something that will make them go "cool! I never would have asked for this but it's a neat thing to have!" Do you have any ideas?

Who is The Idiot? (A Flamenco Musician)

A thousand years ago (actually probably ..1998?), a guest speaker came to my music class to teach us about Flamenco. She played a recording of a singer/guitarist that I loved, but she said that he was called "The Idiot" and I have never been able to find his work. As I understood it at the time, this was a nickname rather than anything he'd published under, and it was probably an offensive word, because of something about his appearance? I'm probably asking for something hugely offensive, but I loved his music when I heard it. Anybody know his real name?

I am NOT thinking of Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy."

I'm trying like crazy to find the name of a song I heard playing earlier that I was unable to identify at the time. It is an indie-rock type of song with a long, slow build of an airy female voice singing in this repetitive rhythm. The voice is pretty heavily layered and processed, but it sounded like some of the lines were things like, "Parking our cars, sleeping on lawns" but the google's do nothing but bring up that damn Lit song, which is absolutely not what it was. So now this is driving me crazy and I really want to get this song. Hope me?

We Can't All Be Special Snowflakes

I'm a musician and sometimes when I see or hear other artists who are doing cool, innovative things that are somewhat similar to what I'm doing, I feel irritated or threatened, like my work is less important or less unique now, and it makes me bitter or less inclined to continue working on my own stuff. I hate that I feel so petty and competitive instead of just being happy for the success of others. I really just need to get over myself and stop being a butthead, but I don't know how to deal with these feelings. I was hoping the HiveMind could give me some words of wisdom.

Warm, modern, slightly epic classical music?

So there's classical music and then there's film score music, right? What I'm looking for is something in the middle that sounds modern, epic, but not overly bombastic (as cool as it can be, I'm not looking for Two Steps from Hell). Also, major bonus points if it's not actually from an existing film and not too purposely calming (by which I mean no whale sounds etc. the music I'm looking for would be calming but that shouldn't be it's reason for existing). A good example of what I'm looking for is this track from the second Thor soundtrack after the 50 second mark.

Playlist help: NBD breakup songs

I'm starting to date (after only having been in Serious Big-Deal Relationships previously) and am having fun, not looking for anything serious.

Help me identify this song based on the melody

What is the 80s or 90s pop song with a similar melody to the one in Super Freak/Can't Touch This? It sounds like the same intervals, but sung with the "words" da-dee-day-doh. I want to say it could be from the UK, possibly somewhere else in Europe. I think the album cover is black and white and could be a picture of people walking. Sorry for how vague this is! Any ideas?

Trying to ID 80s or early 90s music video - hard rock/hair metal

What I remember from the video: at the end, it featured a member of the band leaving a young woman's house (as if they'd just had sex), walking or driving down the block, and women from other houses on the block would come out of their houses, smile and wave at him, like he was the neighborhood gigolo. I believe it was filmed in California. Van Halen? Aerosmith? I'm drawing a blank.

80 Bob Dylan covers released as singles in one 1965 fortnight?

Yesterday I was reading an article written by Johnny Black about Bob Dylan in an old (November 1998) MOJO magazine, and was intrigued by the following statement: "In one fortnight at the end of 1965, 80 cover versions of Dylan songs were released as singles." Is there any way I could find out exactly what those 80 singles were, short of writing to MOJO or Johnny Black and asking for the source of an article from well over a decade ago? Have any official data been retained (by, say, recording industry bodies or Dylan's publishers) pertaining to single releases during the mid-60s? Or have any Dylanologists organized such data?
