Help Identifying a Song!

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.

Help me identify this song based on the melody

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?

Tom Waits-ish pop song

There's a popular track on the radio these days that sounds a little like Tom Waits. Maybe like his tune "Clap Hands" (though not exactly). Its repeated chorus ends with a dude with a distorted voice saying something like "[word] up." [more inside]

Preppy dude gets the cold shoulder in mid-2000s pop song?

I've been searching for a pop song by a young female vocalist, US, ca 2005? Most of the music video was of her on the school bus, with the story being that her boyfriend fucked up, how she doesn't want to see him anymore, etc.? I think she had an Italian-sounding name. Halp?

What snake-themed song did I hear?

On the radio I heard an old-sounding (1960s?), female-fronted pop-rock song that had the lyrics "you tremble and you shake / when he moves like a snake". What song is it?

That Blacklight Sound.

Electric Day-Glo Acid Music? Looking for songs that invoke a feeling of hot pink and neon fantasia that isn't largely electronic (analog synth is oky. Moody is okay but upbeat preferred. Bonus points for songs that reference color in the lyrics.

What's this song?

What's this song? It was on US Top 40 radio in the late 80s. It's a mashup sorta thingie of musical styles, starting out with a big band playing "In the Mood" and moving forward through different popular music styles to the modern day. IIRC at the very end there is a brief return to a little bit of In the Mood.

Whoooooooooooooooooooooooo does the f@%$!ing track?!

I can't believe I'm going to blow a question this, but here goes: I keep hearing this really lame hip pop track that features the artist calling out: Whooooooooooooooooo? Yoooooooooooooooooou! and then some references to superman. It's stuck in my head. I can't seem to google it. I've listened to everything on the charts. Help me go to sleep.

Help me find the artist

SongLyricFilter : I heard a song on a local semi-indie radio show, and would like to know who it was. I remember precious few details, however. Sparse arrangement, just a singer and a guitar at first. I remember the phrase "space and time" coming up a lot, and something like "I could write a long letter."

Sorry to be so vague. Any ideas?
