What is this song? All I have trapped in my head is a fragment that goes "Never gonna happen, never gonna happen; never gonna happen, never gonna happen." starting out at a high pitch and progressively getting lower; the first syllable of the word never in the first and third repetition of the phrase are stretched out. Googling it is getting me songs that are not this song.
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".

I really like the music in Apple's "Aluminum" video for the Apple Watch. Unfortunately, AppleMusic.info has no information about this video. Any idea who the artist might be?
The chorus of Barney's Castle So High, starting around 19 seconds into that video, is giving me a massive dose of "I've heard that tune before!", but I can't put my finger on where. Any ideas? A musical, maybe?
"Climb the walls like Peter Parker, now." what downtempo, Funky Lowlives-esque song from about 10-15 years ago does that line come from? [more inside]
I've only heard the song twice in my life. The second time I managed to slam a cassette tape into a tape recorder, capturing the 2nd half of the song. That was thirty years ago. Haven't figured it out since. [more inside]
I'm looking for help identifying a song I heard earlier today. I don't have a lot to go on -- I only heard the last 30 seconds or so on the radio at a store. It was jangly and reminiscent of the Susanna Hoffs / Matthew Sweet cover albums. It sounded like a woman and a man harmonizing (but could possibly have been two women) and was upbeat. The last line ended with something like "...to make up for all you left behind", and the song ended abruptly with no fade out.
I have been wondering for month about a song I sometimes heard on the radio sometime between 1992 and 1997. The chorus is very close to the instruments, beat, and tempo in D.C. Talk's "Just Between You And Me" opening verses (starting at this spot here) but the singer sounds kind of like Seal. It's sung kind of wistfully, but I don't know any lyrics, just how it sounds. Any idea what it could be? I went through Seal's discography one by one, and it's not him. It sounds closest to "Prayer For The Dying", the same sort of delivery and tempo, but that's not it.
What is the 80s or 90s pop song with a similar melody to the one in Super Freak/Can't Touch This? It sounds like the same intervals, but sung with the "words" da-dee-day-doh. I want to say it could be from the UK, possibly somewhere else in Europe. I think the album cover is black and white and could be a picture of people walking. Sorry for how vague this is! Any ideas?
I love the When Cheese Fails series! And I was wondering what that sound/tune in this video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybP5J4MSgxI at 4:16 - 4:33 I like listening to music, so maybe a music type or perhaps a link to a specific tune. Listening to it makes either want to A) Transcend this world or B) Kill myself Thanks.
I always hear the very end of this song on the local rock station, but never any other part! Since much of what the station plays (94.1 WHJY, "94 HJY" in Providence, RI) could be called "classic rock", I'm going to assume it falls into that category. A butchered GarageBand approximation of the outro is attached. (Note that the actual outro is played on an electric guitar - it's actually chords.) [more inside]
I found this song kicking about on my computer, and while I'm sure I took it off a record years ago I have no idea what it is. Nothing on Google searches or song identification software; anybody here know?

Downtempo/Trip Hop/Chillout song stuck in my head in a huge way. It's something I've heard dozens of times before but now, of course, I can't identify it. It's got a male vocalist, possibly British-sounding. The song is somewhat popular - it may be on a bunch of compilations and chillout/downtempo internet radio stations. [more inside]

Camarero something something me muero de sed: What is the name of this Spanish language song about being at a bar on the beach and trying to get the waiter's attention for a drink? I last heard it in 1995 and expect it was made only a few years earlier. I thought the name was just Camarero, but I am not getting the right song by Google. The singer is male, the music generically Latin, and I am pretty sure you hear the drink being opened.
