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'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.)
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]
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?
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?

Can you name the song [29-second excerpt, 462k mp3] that's playing all too quietly in the background of a scene from season 2 episode 8 of Happy Endings?
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]
Name that song! Instrumental. Very recent. Overheard on the radio and in stores/restaurants where they typically play indie/alt rock. Bouncy. Very strong bassline. Kinda reminds me of Air. [more inside]
NameThatSongFilter: Looking for a 90's song that used the horns from Soul Finger by the Bar-Kays [more inside]
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!

Name That Song: A friend of mine first heard this song 31 years ago when he was in Goa, India, but he says that his location isn't siginificant to the question because he's sure it's an American or British pop song. The only lyrics he remembers are as follows: [more inside]
