Name that tune: rock/pop, heavily-repeated catchy "na na na na" chorus, nylon-strung open guitar chords, heavily-reverbed Asian-language (or French) female vocals, and string section. Slow, lilting, sad, and haunting. Reminiscent of "Crimson and Clover", but a little less psychedelic. [more inside]

Okay, I heard this song once on the radio. It was kinda motowny and real catchy, with your fairly standard "I own that female" theme. The band was (iirc) five brothers from Cambodia or some other SE Asian country. I remember finding them in some Wikipedia list of one-hit wonders from the 60s or 70s. I seem to recall their name had something to do with New York, maybe Brooklyn something, or something. Anyone know what I'm talking about here? [more inside]

I'm trying to figure out the name of the song or band associated with a music video I saw on New York Noise about a year or so ago. It was an animated music video involving birds flying across the sky for a song that I believe was instrumental. I'm guessing the band might be Icelandic since the song was played when I went to a Bjork festival at a bar in Williamsburg.
