Song detectives, can you crack this crazy-tough one? Way back in the early '90s we had a mixtape with a song that included the phrase (we think) "the oysters were delighted!" I think the mixtape's theme was moon-related. [more inside]
What is this song? A toy plays it (hence the sound quality), and I'm sure I've heard it before, but can't place it.
There has been a song on the tip of my mental tongue, as it were, for about three weeks now and I am hoping some genius mefite can recognize it from my fragmentary description. It is Caribbean in flavour and I am 90% sure it was recorded in the sixties. Unfortunately about all I have is part of the chorus. [more inside]
This weekend, I heard a great song while in a gas station shop. I REALLY enjoyed it, but not being a regular pop listener, I don't know where to even start to look for it. [more inside]
This past week, I was in a Chipotle and heard an interesting song. However, Shazam couldn't identify it. It was "psychedelic"-sounding with a male singer (think Beach Boys or The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows"), but the only words I could decipher were "merry go round". See the extended explanation...

There's a song Mike & the bots half-coherently sing a couple of times in Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode 519 "Outlaw of Gor." What is it? [more inside]
Extremely vague song description: I heard a woman playing acoustic guitar in Boston at South Station tonight. She was playing a fairly famous song from the 60's or 70's. The song is sung by a male with a deep scratchy voice, like hungover whiskey voice. He is singing powerfully and it is a powerful song. Not a happy song. It's a singer's song, not so much about the music. The song is definitely famous enough, but not something you would regularly hear, or hear at all on a classic rock radio station. I picture the man singing it to have a lot of facial hair. The lyrics may contain the word 'fire' or they may not.
I am desperately trying to remember a song from a mix-tape around 1996 that involved a male singing in a quiet, resigned, almost-verging-on-happy-about-giving-up tone about how he was going to just stay inside and live his do-nothing life in his crappy run-down home and drink tea with a dormouse. Something to that effect. Minimalist sound, kind of plinky and plonky. [more inside]

Help me identify this mystery song that played on my iPhone so I don't think I'm crazy. [more inside]
Last night on the way home from work I was listening to Cosmic Commander's Sonic Radio on Faction. I heard a song and would really like to find out who did it. [more inside]
Can anyone identify this song for a friend of mine? Thanks in advance.
Help my father identify two songs he recorded off the radio in the late 80's / early 90's. One is bluegrass and the other is alternative rock. [more inside]
Can anyone help me identify this song, given a description of the first 45ish seconds (no lyrics)? [more inside]
Name-that-song filter. Male singer, lyrics (I think) contain the line: "as big as Saskatchewan, you're never going to see me again." Any ideas? Not much more inside, I'm afraid. [more inside]

Anyone know this song? Sorry, I only have that excerpt.) Sounds like a 1960s folk-pop tune. In case you don't feel like downloading it, the lyrics are along these lines: I gotta get the world off my back / Pretty soon I'm gonna crack / so I gotta get the world offa my back somehow ... I grew up and looked around me and I saw that the world was in a mess / thousands of hungry people, children starving in wars, injustice, and everybody kept picking on me ... I had no luck searching with the lyrics online. Thanks for any help you can provide!

SongIDFilter: Can anyone identify this song? It's from a compilation CD, and I have no distinguishing information other than the song itself. It sounds quite familiar, but no-one I've asked has been able to place it. It seems rather cinematic, making me think that it's from a film score, but that's really all I have to go on. Any leads would be much appreciated.
Asking for a dear friend: help identify a song with an unexpected short pause. [more inside]
Canadian song alert: I'm trying to remember a tune that was played incessantly on Canadian (or at least, St. Lawrence Valley-area) commercial radio sometime in the 1990s. [MI] [more inside]
