I recently heard A Piece of Ground by Miriam Makeba. I am certain that I have never heard these lyrics before, but I am almost equally certain that I know the tune. But I can't think of where I know it from, and it's driving me crazy! What other songs have this tune? Vague ideas about where I might know it from inside. [more inside]
NameThatTuneFilter: heard a song earlier tonight while trying on shirts at Nordstrom Rack. Meant to Google the lyrics. Promptly forgot. Am now heartbroken. [more inside]
Name-That-Tune Filter: uptempo pop/rock, female vocalist, and the hook contains the lyric "I just wanna know, where did she go?" Or something like it… [more inside]
[Name-that-tune-Filter] Looking for the name and/or general translation of a Danish song my mother learned from friends as a child. [more inside]
I’m looking for a song I heard a few years ago. It was some kind of techno song, and I remember a spoken line that sounded awfully like "My name is Benny the killer fuck beef truck." I have a feeling those aren’t the actual lyrics. [more inside]

What song is this? Ethereal and moody vocals (not quite spy, not quite gothic, but leaning ecletic), jazz rock background, sounds a bit like early Goldfrapp, or Morphine, or maybe even Darling Violetta. (All pretty approximate.) Very rough lyrics: I call you Tracy, You get along, You lovely... sing me your song. I call you darling, I know it's strong. I bet... ...and on. Show goes on. Show goes on. I call you ... ... I call you Liza B. I wish I could see That maybe it's only my dream. It's only my dream. Show goes on. Show goes on. I miss... ...queen of bees (beasts?). That honey Suzie, bewitched by me. I think you're... what else can be? ... ... Be my promise breaker, ... delusion maker, ... I wish I could see, It's only my dream. Show goes on, The show goes on.
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 me find this rap song.. the chorus is something like "20% sweat, 30% tears, 50% ambition, 10% dreams.." and on the verses, each rapper talks about how great his co-rappers are, not about himself. [more inside]
Name that tune!! It was used in commercials to advertise the HBO film "Empire Falls", and now to advertise a new show coming in the fall - E-Ring maybe? Anyway - it's kind of pop-rock sounding, male vocal. Lyrics: Something like - even when you cannot hear me ... I'll be right beside you dear.
