Does this musical percussion technique have a name?

I have a vague memory of seeing someone perform a percussion piece where they swung a rope in each hand with a weight on the end. They would sometimes allow the weight to strike the wooden resonating chamber to make a "clack" sound. In so doing, they were able to clack out some surprisingly complex rhythms. Does this instrument/technique have a name? What is it? And most importantly, where can I find some videos of people doing it?

Get this earworm out of my head! (and onto my ipod)

I have a piece of a song stuck in my head and it's apparently not enough for google to be of any use. It's an 80's or 90's song, with a guy's voice sort of chanting "ooh ma ma way" in an african-y sounding way with a heavy bass line. I feel like it was used a lot in soundtracks to represent a journey or something like that, because it reminds me of solsbury hill. if anyone can name this song, i know it's you lovely mefites.

A Certain Irritating Soundtrack

A friend of mine's been watching the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun S", and he's been having trouble identifying one of the incidental music pieces. It's in episode 11, from 17:52 to 20:00--what song is this (mp3), used here, and which of the OSTs is it on, if any? He says he's searched them all, including a second Railgun S OST which apparently came out yesterday, but he can't seem to find it, though he admits that he might have missed it along the line. Any help you can offer he'd appreciate. Thanks!

Name That Tune #964,323...

Early 80's hip hop. The only fragment i can remember is a single male voice repeating (something like) "just a rockin and a shockin and a burnin it up/c'mon everybody, pump it up." Possibly Zulu Nation, but i think I've ruled out Trouble Funk's "Pump Me Up." Oh great hivemind, unfold your wisdom and kill this earworm for good!

What's this tune. March/Guinness edition.

When you tell me the answer, I will likely nut-punch myself for forgetting it. I can play this damned song on the fiddle, yet can't remember it's name. From like :30-1:38 here. And I know the name of the third reel as well. Little help?

Name that tune: church video edition

Name that tune: this morning, the guest preacher played a video about Myanmar. He was from OMF International. I remember too little of the song in the background to do a fruitful search: something something 'what does it mean to live this life' and something about a shore, maybe. Sung by a man, sparse instrumentation. Can you help me? [more inside]

you know, the mercurochrome song, the french one, with kalimba ...

Heard a catchy as-all-get-out song on CJBC-FM Espace musique early this afternoon. All I remember:
  • In French
  • Female singer
  • Had kalimba/mbira featured pretty heavily
  • Had "mercurochrome" and perhaps "petit pansement" in the lyrics.
Anyone able to ID it, please?

name that tune: an ancient transmission from Mars...

So... nineteen years ago I recorded the top 30 countdown on Mars FM, a radio station in L.A. Four years ago I dumped those cassette tape recordings to MP3, and in the process I found this song that I've been wondering about all this time. The end of the tape comes right as the announcer is about to say what it is. All I can tell you, which I highly doubt will help at all, is that it was #16 on the Mars FM Top 30 for January 4th, 1992. I asked some friends about it at the time, but nobody knew what it was, and Tunatic wasn't able to decipher it, so I forgot about it for a while, but just the other day I remembered it for some strange reason, so now I'm posting it here to Ask MeFi. Can anyone name this early-90s rave anthem?

Name that song

Can anyone on the green tell me if Mit Viel Gluck by 2 Raumwohnung is a cover of a song and, if so, which song? The first time I heard this song I was instantly confident that just about anyone could tell me what song the tune came from. Several attempts to find out later and I'm wondering if I'm simply imagining that I know it. It's so maddeningly familiar -- particularly around the 1:12 mark. Can anyone help?

Spare your wrath about 80s music, please, this is my childhood we're talking about.

I've been looking for an old CD my parents used to play when I was little, caled "here come the hits", but it doesn't seem to be anywhere visible. In fact, it seems to have dropped out of existence entirely; I can't even find a tracklisting on the internet so I can gather the songs from other sources. I know "shout" by tears for fears was one of the songs, and "black cars look better in the shade" and "one night in bangkok" are likely contenders. Can somebody help me find an official tracklist for this album of 80's one-hit-wonders so I can get some closure?
