Name that song played during a Patriots Foundation halftime blurb.

What is this song I heard in the background of the Kraft / Patriots Charitable Foundation presentation at halftime during the 8/28/14 exhibition game vs. the Giants? Lousy GarageBand interpretation of the main riff/loop attached. http://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-that-tune/411466.html [more inside]

Name that tune!

It's a short song, with a female vocalist and what sounds like acoustic guitar and violin/fiddle in the background, relatively fast-paced. I can't make out all the lyrics (it's on Store Radio at work) but the bits I've been able to work out are "remember the years when you and I were young and free" and "a knock at the door, I'm going to have company". Any ideas?

Name that Song, Acoustic Edition

Yesterday I heard this song in a Chipotle, but I regularly hear a snippet of it on some NPR (specifically WGBH, Boston) program. A link to my sluggish GarageBand interpretation is attached; the actual song is at a much, much faster tempo. I don't remember any vocals. http://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-that-tune/366507.html What's it called?

I have an unknown song stuck in my head!

I'm looking for a song sung by someone with a Seether-like, raspy-sounding voice. The only lyrics I can remember are "you will never be lonely (lonesome?) again." [more inside]

Ahhhh earworm song that needs identification!

The only lyrics I remember are "like Moses on a mountain bike". It was an early- to mid-90s song in the general alternapop genre. I thought it may have been Lightning Seeds but my Google-fu says no. My Google-fu is also failing to turn anything up other than Chumbawumba which I know it is not. Help! It's driving me nuts!
