Asking for my wife... There's a Gap TV ad running in the U.S. this month, featuring a "Daddy-O" song. Any one know the artist and actual song title? Sorry I don't have more info.

SongLyricsFilter: First line (and refrain throughout the song, I believe) is "Getting down to business." Sounds vaguely 70ish with a sort of pump-up beat. Google is getting me nowhere. Any ideas you may have are much appreciated.

(SongFilter) Dear mother recently lamented that she could die happy if only she could find a song (perhaps from her childhood in the 50s?) that names all the presidents. A key lyric seems to be "Doin my homework with you." An old woman's hyperbole to be sure, but we do try to please our parents. [more inside]

IPod help for a friend....
Sorry if this was asked before, I looked but didn't see it...
My friend has an IPod Nano and her laptop died. She lost her ITunes folders but still has all the music on the device.
How can she get it back without having to re-purchase all the songs? She'd afraid that when she syncs again, everything will be gone.

There is an oldies song, probably from the 50's, and I would consider it a makeout song. There is a male solo singer with backup harmonies.
The main lyric is "I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you"
The first "I" begins as a pick-up note to even triplets.
I|love you I|love you I|love you I|love you I|love you I|love you I|love you
And that last love you is duple.
The 6 in measures 4 and 6 is low, below the tonic.

While watching the olympics I've seen a few ads with Visa's new slogan, "Life Takes Visa" and I really like the song playing in the background. It seems like a pop/rock song (with a little classical in there too), though it may have been composed specifically for the commercial. So my question: if you've seen the ad, do you know what song that is? (And where I could get it? - hopefully iTunes)

Name that tune please :: PBS is great, and the songs in their promos are actually just as good. Currently running is a promo that ends with the words; "Be More ~ ThirteenHD" (this is PBS Thirteen's High-Def channel which they broadcast in NYC & possibly elsewhere?). The music which accompanies it is a piece that I'd classify as sort of a Blues/Rock/Jazz instrumental.
My Question: Name that tune!?!

MusicFilter: What's this song - the only lyrics I can recall are "Mila Hoo Mila Haa" or something like that, which is the chorus. It's techno, robot-like/warped vocals, loud bass, and I've seen people dance the robot to it.

This song is about a letter found in the glove compartment of a used car (maybe a chevrolet) The letter says something to the effect that "If you read this, I have died." Want to get this song as a Christmas present for my dad.

OK music geeks. I was having lunch the other day and this song
came over the speakers. I knew that I'd heard it before, but I didn't know who sang it. Sorry about the lousy recording quality, but it was loud in Chipotle and the recorder on my phone is crappy. Anyway, if you can make it out and identify this song for me, that would be great... because it's stuck in my head!

I was in Mexico City and went to Lipstick, a cute loungy gay bar and they played this song that I cannot for the life of me find. It had a female singer, and was a kinda dance/pop/gay song, thought dont remember if it was in english or not, but the chorus was this catchy whistling tune that everyone in the bar knew as they imitated the whistling in a funny/cute/innocent way. Anyone know what Im talking about?

My close friends are about to finalize their adoption of a baby from Saratov, Russia. The baby has spent some time in an orphanage in Saratov, and I think a nice gift for him would be a CD of songs that might have been sung to him during his infancy. Can anyone recommend a good source for Russian children's music?

I just want to remember a video song.
hint : All the video is made of Alphabet letters, it's all Big building alphabet, Motorcycles Alphabet, Car Alphabet... and we can see the traffic in Alphabet and even an helicopter in Alphabet.
I can't remember neither the song's name, neither the artist.
But if you have already seen it you could remember it.

Name that tune!! It was used in commercials to advertise the HBO film "Empire Falls", and now to advertise a new show coming in the fall - E-Ring maybe? Anyway - it's kind of pop-rock sounding, male vocal. Lyrics: Something like - even when you cannot hear me ... I'll be right beside you dear.
