Song that goes something like AABBCCDD (literally)?

I have part of a song stuck in my head. The lyrics I can remember are something that sounds like "A A, B B - CCDD, CCDD" - that is literally what is being sung, it's not the rhyme scheme. Who is the artist and what is the track called? [more inside]

Song ID: something about liking/not liking popcorn?

It's sung by a woman in some kind of retro rock-y style that I can't quite articulate. It's a list of foods that girls either.. like or don't like, and the chorus is about popcorn.. I think. Challenge: pretty sure this is from a Portland, OR band, as I heard this on the local Portland-centric radio station KZME. [more inside]

I think it's a recent song - The chorus has has a woman singing in a simple voice. She sounds young and has a neutral accent - the non-chorus parts of the song I think is a reggae hip hop deal, but not sure. [more inside]

Yes I'm ask metafiltering nineties techno. Don't judge.

In the mid-ninties, there was this techno song with a vocal instructing the listeners to raise up their hands, "raise them up." His voice was calm and could've been sampled from a movie (it was not like the more cliched sample of a dj or singer revving up the crowd, it felt almost religious). What was the name of this song?

Find me that lazy lout!

I'm looking for a recording of a song, but I can't find it anywhere, or even who might have recorded it! In Get Up by Chinese Man there's a sample of a song (starts about 20 seconds in). From googling the lyrics I've found the song seems to be called Lazy Lout, but that's pretty much all I can find. [more inside]

Korean Song Identification

Hi, I need some help identifying a song. It was a slow Korean R&B song by a male solo artist. I don't remember much about it, I think there was a sole electric keyboard at the start playing a simple accompaniment. (not sure though) I know it is vague, but if you post some songs, I will try to lead you into a more specific direction.

Name that song?

For those who are awesome at identifying songs from next-to-nothing - why does the guitar part from this song ("Aaron and Maria" by the American Analog Set) sound so naggingly familiar? I know I've heard it before, but for the life of me I can't place it. [more inside]

Identify the mystery song, win a cookie!

SongIDFilter: Can anyone identify this song? It's from a compilation CD, and I have no distinguishing information other than the song itself. It sounds quite familiar, but no-one I've asked has been able to place it. It seems rather cinematic, making me think that it's from a film score, but that's really all I have to go on. Any leads would be much appreciated.
