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?
My husband and I were enjoying the new 'Godspeed, You Black Emperor' album, entitled 'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress.' We were digging it. Then we got to song #3, "Lamb's Breath"... at some point in the song (hard to say when, and I'm too spooked to listen to it again) the keyboard drops into a long droning sound... [more inside]
So I've fallen in love with this song, and am interested in any other songs of the ostensible songwriter Liz Thorsen. But there is zero information about her anywhere I can find. [more inside]
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.
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. It is Caribbean in flavour and I am 90% sure it was recorded in the sixties. Unfortunately about all I have is part of the chorus. [more inside]

What was that song from 2008 - 2009? [more inside]
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]

Lots of laboring jobs have a history of singing while working. Does mining? Are there miner songs?

I've got a riff from a saxophone solo stuck in my head and I can't remember what song it's from. I think it's from a Phil Collins or Genesis or similar track from the 80's. The riff sort of goes "doo dooo do do do, do doo do do, do DO do do dah da dum dah da". The general ambiance is sort of nighttime sultry. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
This is driving me nuts: I keep hearing this song in busy loud places and I can't identify the lyrics enough to find it. I haven't been able to ask anyone who the artist is, unfortunately. [more inside]

I'm ashamed to be using a question on this, but what 70s (?) song features a chorus that is the band singing the name "CJ?" It's about a girl named CJ, I think, and all I can remember about it is that the refrain goes "CEEEEeeeee JAAAaaay." (I presumed it was called "CJ" or something similar but Google and Rdio fail me.)
Sounds like disposable 80s pop, female vocals, chorus ends with "Five, six, se-ven, eight..." Help! [more inside]
Alternative/rock song, a guy with a deep voice singing, kind of slower than a typical indie song, it sounded a bit depressing. The singing was kind of muffled but the only lyrics I heard clearly in the chorus were "for tonight I say goodbye" and the very last line of the song was "For tonight I say my last goodbye" and he kind of slowed down for the very last line. [more inside]

I listened to a song sometime in the last year that was titled "The (something), the (something) and the (something) (or something very close to this). One of those somethings was "Law" and pretty sure the other somethings were somehow related. It was a rock song, but I don't know when it was released, but seemed < 15 years old. Ring any bells?

Hi AskMe. I'm losing my mind. I heard a cover of the Boney M disco song Rasputin on Pandora a few years ago. It came up in rotation a few times, but I can't find a version that matches the one I recall, either on my channel thumbs-up songs or on a Pandora song title search. I can't find it Googling 'Rasputin cover.' It's not the Turisas version, but it's similar. [more inside]

My SO heard this song on a DJ mix years ago and has been trying to find out the title/artist ever since. We’ve Googled the lyrics and tried to identify it using Shazam, but have had no luck. He’s uploaded a clip of it here. Since this was taken from a mix, it might be played back at a different pitch than it was recorded at. Can anyone identify it?
