A song of... a lifetime?

My baby is turning one next month. To mark her first year of life, I'm mashing together 365 one-second video clips (one for each day of her life). Can you help me find the perfect background song? Some criteria beneath the fold... [more inside]

What's this song? 80s pop-ish sounding, female vocalist

A tune popped into my head and it's driving me nuts. I'm pretty sure this is a relatively accurate hum. If I remember correctly, it was a female vocalist and sounded vaguely like 80s pop. Kind of Cyndi Lauper-ish? Help! SOS!

Help me identify a 1980s dance track from this brief description?

I've had this song chorus in my head since 1990. Please send help.

I went to summer camp in northern Minnesota in the late 80s/early 90s. I was exposed to all kinds of awesome music there from kids all over the country, which was a huge big thing for young midwestern me. I remember sitting on a cold lake beach listening intently to a mix tape one of the older girls was playing, and there is a song that has stuck in my head ever since. The chorus is something like "So wave goodbye to everything you knew." I can still noodle it out on piano and guitar, but I can't identify the song. Please help. [more inside]

Help me find this song?

Hi. I have a really vague description of a song, and I'm wondering if it rings a bell for anyone. Looking for an 80's/90's song with the possible chorus lyric of "hush now, don't say a word." Female vocalist. I also remember some synthesizer in the song as well. I've uploaded a really bad humming version of the song you can listen to here. Driving us crazy! Thanks for your help.

Need a title-quote referencing past year + coming year

I have a line: "The Year in Review, The Year Ahead". I'd like to keep that sentiment but specifically have it be a quote. Could be a song or book title. Could be a single title or if you've got two that work well together, that's fine too.

Getting her back from the dead presidents

Looking for songs where the girl (or boy) is telling the boy or girl who left them - even though the two had found true love - for an opportunity to be financially or societally secure - to come back to their relationship and to real love.

Identify a song: like a cross between Shinedown and alt-J...

Bear with me: I haven't heard this song in a while so my memory might be off, but I think this song came out in the last year or so. Genre: alternative rock or electronic, probably indie. The instrumentation is mostly electronic, and the singer is male. What sticks out most is the chorus - the melody descends then ascends and reminds me of the chorus of Shinedown's "Second Chance". More details inside... [more inside]

Can you help me find this "Sound of Silence" cover with a female lead?

I'm looking for a "Sound of Silence" cover I used to listen to ~7 years ago. The lead singer was female. I believe the band's name started with a W. The feel of the song was largely unchanged (not a rock/metal/etc cover if I remember correctly.) Not the Nouela version that's found on Youtube. [more inside]

song filter - slow hip hop

Underground-sounding hip hop song by a black male artist. If I remember correctly, most of the song is him talking to the very simple beat. Relatively slow song, with him talking/asking questions (in a lyrical, conversational way) 6-8 syllables at a time. Probably early 2000's. I don't think it was super underground since I heard it in the gym recently. [more inside]

late 90s r&b song identification

There was a duet in the late 90s sung by r&b artists...one male, one female. Only thing I can remember is that it was a love song, it had a lot of bass and one of the lyrics was about Al Green. The singers went back and forth as if they were in a relationship, I believe. [more inside]

Is there an X-Files episode that uses a Cymande song?

Here's my possibly false memory: the show is the X-Files (although maybe it's Millennium?) and the song is Cymande's "Dove." The song recurs, diegetically, several times in the episode, whenever something uncanny is happening, although only one character is aware of it. At one point, it comes over the PA system of a hospital, distant and phased-out sounding. Googling doesn't turn up anything, so I assume I must have some detail wrong. What am I remembering?

What is being sung in this French-language song?

If any Francophones are up for a challenge: can you tell this monoglot what is being sung in The Go! Team's song Ye Ye Yamaha? (YouTube link but should also be on all the streaming services.) He wants to sing along but has to resort to garbled nonsense words. It's a fuzzy pop song with a killer catchy chorus, if that entices anyone!

Airport announcement song on NPR today?

Today on my local NPR affiliate (KUOW), there was an interview with someone who sang a song using the standard airport "unattended baggage" announcements as the the lyrics. It was during the all things considered time slot, but I'm not sure if it was actually ATC, or if it was a local piece. I'm trying to figure out who the artist is, or if I was suffering from an extended hallucination. I have checked the ATC and KUOW websites, and also googled every combo I could think of. Who is the artist and what is the piece called?

Trying to find pop song w/ lyrics that sound like "I believe in my self"

Was at Planet Fitness and over the last week they kept playing a new pop song that has a refrain that sounds something like "I believe in my self" or "I be leading myself". It's a guy singing, and it's an upbeat pop song definitely issued very recently. Anyone know this one? I'm going insane trying to find it with no luck. I must have misheard the refrain.

Birthday songs sung in the US before "Happy Birthday To You"

Looking for music and hopefully audio for birthday songs that might have been sung in the states before ~1860, ideally in English. I feel certain that I have seen a list of such songs in the past, but several decades worth of hubbub about the "Happy Birthday to You" copyright and the generic nature of the possible search terms seem to have have rendered Google helpless. Thanks!

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.

ID a beautifu song - lost in the streets in front of a statue or chapel

I think the song is about two people who lose each other in a crowd in front of a the church, basilica, or statue of a saint. I think the song is named after that saint. This song is hauntingly beautiful, the rhythm twinkles and meanders throughout, and in the middle, any classical melody or rhythm completely lost for a minute, the parts/layers of the music overlapping out of phase. Then the same parts are played together, locked in phase at the end. [more inside]
