My husband and I were enjoying the new 'Godspeed, You Black Emperor' album, entitled 'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress.' We were digging it. Then we got to song #3, "Lamb's Breath"... at some point in the song (hard to say when, and I'm too spooked to listen to it again) the keyboard drops into a long droning sound... [more inside]

I'm trying to remember a song I listened to many times years ago - it had a great spoken word part at the beginning of a woman talking about how we use wheels and doors for their emptiness - very similar to the Tao Te Ching chapter 11: http://earlywomenmasters.net/tao/ch_11.html [more inside]
This is driving me nuts: I keep hearing this song in busy loud places and I can't identify the lyrics enough to find it. I haven't been able to ask anyone who the artist is, unfortunately. [more inside]

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? Chorus: "iiiiiit's alllll-right" [more inside]
WhatIsThisSongFilter: What song is this?(link goes to my blog where I'm humming it) Recent-ish male singer, R&B/rock, angsty, heard in the US. SoundHound and Midomi fail me.

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?
Here is the song Starting at one minute, ending at the two minute mark. My Spanish is terrible, especially with the elongated words. Can anyone identify this song?
Name this song! It was on 9.07 WFUV in NYC at 2pm a few Sunday's back during a Gaelic music show. Pretty sure it's in Gaelic. But I can't find the playlists for that show on WFUV. It is funky .
When I was on vacation in Chicago last year I stopped by the Field Museum and happened to catch a video in the Senegal exhibit of a musician playing and singing a song that I thought was really beautiful. I recall that he was playing the kora and that the lyrics pertained to a shaman or similar person. I have tried looking on the Field Museum website and sending them an email but no dice so far. Does anyone know who is in the video and/or the name of the song?
Please help me identify this song I heard once and can't get out of my head. (Better description and lame partial recreation within.) [more inside]
I heard a song recently that sounded new and was dreamy and catchy, with a female singer, with the lyrics "grace and symmetry" or "symmetry and grace." Um, help me find her? [more inside]
I heard a song this morning as I pulled into my work and didn't hear the end of it as I was running a bit late and figured I could Google it later. Well, that didn't work, so now I'm asking you guys. [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've migrated all my songs to iTunes Match, because I don't have space on my hard drive. But some of my ripped tracks have weird names, dating back from when I manually ripped the CDs. Is there a way of (semi?)automatically correcting these without having to download my whole library, or go through manually? [more inside]

Putting together a playlist of congratulation/celebratory songs, please let me know your favorites.
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]
I'm looking for two songs I heard on the radio but, mostly due to current [read: popular] songs that share the same keywords, my google-fu is failing me. Help me find them based upon the partially remembered lyrics and topics covered. This ain't yo' grandma's google request... [more inside]
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 was in a diner the other day and heard a light rock song that had a chorus of Harrison, Harrison, Harrison sung by what sounded like a man. They were playing a lot of 80s and 90s stuff, so it's probably around there. What is this song? I tried to Google it but all that got me was lots of information about George Harrison.
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.
Years ago there was a song on A Prarie Home Companion, sung by a chorus with no instrumentation, that sounded almost like it was in Swedish Chef Swedish, and included banging noises. I know little else about it, but have been trying to identify it and find out who sung it. Googling doesn't help. Can any of you? [more inside]
I've got very little information about a folk song, possibly traditional, in some Germanic language. But I'd really love to hear it again! [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?
I have a piece of a song stuck in my head and it's apparently not enough for google to be of any use. It's an 80's or 90's song, with a guy's voice sort of chanting "ooh ma ma way" in an african-y sounding way with a heavy bass line. I feel like it was used a lot in soundtracks to represent a journey or something like that, because it reminds me of solsbury hill. if anyone can name this song, i know it's you lovely mefites.
A friend of mine's been watching the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun S", and he's been having trouble identifying one of the incidental music pieces. It's in episode 11, from 17:52 to 20:00--what song is this (mp3), used here, and which of the OSTs is it on, if any? He says he's searched them all, including a second Railgun S OST which apparently came out yesterday, but he can't seem to find it, though he admits that he might have missed it along the line. Any help you can offer he'd appreciate. Thanks!

Years ago on some local radio station I heard a silly jazz song with a guy singing about being surprised to encounter a bald woman. The chorus went something like, "Well, looky there. She didn't have no hair.....no hair up there." [more inside]
I fell in love with a song in a coffee shop today and unfortunately don't have a smart phone to recognize songs for me, so here I am hoping someone might know it. It was a lovely, mid-paced alt-country type of song with some steel guitar, a soprano female singer (with, I think, a female harmony part as well on the chorus), and I think the first line of the chorus ran, "Oh, baby, you're my one and only." [more inside]
I'm trying to source this haunting voice. Is this arabic? A sung prayer? Stumbled on this by accident, no idea what it is. Thanks for any tips...
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?
I’m looking for songs that contain the word “darling.” The word doesn’t have to be included in the title. Bonus points if “darling” is part of the chorus. Thanks!
Has the phrase "you so famous" and a list of artists including Willem de Kooning. Thanks.
Halp! I can't think of the song by a guy talking about different ages in his life; he names several ages like 15, 24, etc., throughout the song and for each one talks about how he feels at that time. It's has a slowish melancholy feel to it. Thanks Mefites!
SongFilter: I heard a song recently that went through a series of colors in the verses and ended with a chorus that included the color red and the phrase "ready for love". Google is failing me...please help me identify it! [more inside]
I heard a great song in spinning class today during the long, slow, hard hill section - slow and steady beat.. I almost remember the song and it's playing on and endless loop just at the edge of my consciousness. Female singer, strong vocal reminiscent of Adele, could have been a James Bond theme song, but I know it wasn't. I want to say Shadow Dancer, but I googled that and came up with a Bee Gees song, definitely not it. I won't sleep tonight unless I figure this out. Please help.
No worries, no spoilers follow. In last night's The Walking Dead (Season 3, Episode 12) there was a song playing just prior to the credits and I badly want the name of it (and the artist of course). The whole song was accompanied by an acoustic guitar and was in a blues style. Lyrics follow: [more inside]
