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]
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 .
Please help me identify this song I heard once and can't get out of my head. (Better description and lame partial recreation within.) [more inside]
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 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!
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]
A friend heard this 30-second clip of a Yiddish song as an interstitial on a BBC Radio program. He asked me to identify it; I love it but have no clue. I would love to purchase more of this artist's music if you can tell me who they are?
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.
Please help me figure out what this song is before my head explodes! [more inside]
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.

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]
SONGFILTER It's a good one. I consider myself a music aficionado, but I still am stumped on this one. My buddy thinks it's from a movie soundtrack, I' not too sure it is - but we both definitely recognize the hook. We transcribed it into notes for you all - more after the jump... [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.

Please help me name this tune. It was featured in "Summer Games" for the Commodore 64, but it's not the Olympic theme song nor a national anthem (or is it?).
I found this adidas ad over at YouTube (It's the one with the shoes running all over town).. The song is super catchy.. (and the ad isn't half bad either).. Can anyone tell me what the song is?

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.
