What is this song I heard on the radio

Name this song! It was on 9.07 WFUV in NYC at 2pm a few Sunday's back during a Gaelic music show. Pretty sure it's in Gaelic. But I can't find the playlists for that show on WFUV. It is funky .

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!

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]

Name that mystery tune?

Can anybody identify this Chinese language song? At least, we think it's Chinese. A friend of mine found it somewhere totally devoid of context, and now we're wondering what it is and where it's from. Any help you can give us would be just fine.

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?

Interesting set of chord changes -- what was the name of the song?

Ska band with a horn section. Prominent piano (?) chords on the off-beat, following the pattern I i i iv. No, that's not a typo: the first tonic chord is major, the rest are minor. Name that tune?

Name that classical tune!

Most TI-99 games used classical tunes for their music. I'm trying to identify the main theme from the game Alpiner, which can be found here. I'm also trying to identify the tune that plays when you conquer the last mountain, which I couldn't find online but reproduced from memory here. Any ideas? [more inside]

Name That Other Tune

I've heard this pop song a couple times on the jukebox, full of bass guitar. The vocals sound like Steve Winwood and the chorus phrase I think I hear is "hearts on fire", but this song is nothing like Steve Winwood's Hearts On Fire. Hep meh?

Like an iPhone, only scarier

Name that science-fiction story (yes, another one): I recall reading an SF short story in which everyone carries around a little gadget that always tells them what to do, which everyone willingly obeys, and without which everyone is helpless. I think the gadgets were called "little brother." The story probably dates back to the 50s or 60s (I read it in the 80s—this has nothing to do with Cory Doctorow's "Little Brother," which I have not read).

What song is this?

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.

Song on H&M in-store radio

Name that tune! H&M on State Street in Chicago plays this song all the time and every time I go in, I try to get enough lyrics to look it up on the internet and I always fail. Girl singer (not Fiona Apple, but has the same rough edge and approximate range. Her tone is sweeter, though). The first lyric is something like "you've got her picture. you've got her picture. you've got her picture on your wall" and I think there's something about scars toward the end of the song.
