Explain the Diva Plavalaguna song to me, please?

Please explain, in simple terms, the Diva Plavalaguna song, from the film The Fifth Element to me. I'd like to know more about the technical aspects of the song. I'm looking for the terms I'd need to plug into Google to find more music of the same style. I'm specifically talking about the first part of the song where the singer is singing in Italian, not the electronica-y second part. Also, I'm looking for recommendations for other similar music.

Help me choose a song that's fun, inspirational and unique.

I won an award. They're going to play a song in the background while I walk up on stage and receive the award at a formal reception/event (with families, executives and other industry reps present). 30-45 seconds of the song will actually play and I can queue it up to the right spot if I don't want to play it from the beginning. My initial thoughts were to use a TV theme song since they're fun and catchy but all the ones I came up with were a little campy. Now I'm considering more classic songs - something everyone will recognize - but am freaking out. Help.

Finding the name of a certain Japanese music group (shakuhachi / piano)?

What I remember is that it was a 2- or 3- or 4-man Japanese music group whose name started with a "K". One of the members plays a shakuhachi, another is a pianist, and I think some of their music falls under the ambient/electronic genre. [more inside]

Losing sleep over ska

Help! I'm going crazy over a song I know, heard a part of in a restaurant today - and can't put a name to. Can any of you help me name this song? The song is ska-ish, I would say nineties, not so fast for a ska song (maybe 80-100 bpm?) The riff that sticks in my mind is a horn riff, starting with 2 very accented half notes at the beginning of the bar (same note), then 3 beats of staccato unaccented quarter notes (varying notes). I know that's not much to work with - but I'd be forever indebted! Thanks!

Buddada buddada boom? Song ending.

I'm looking for the correct musical/technical term (if such a thing exists) for that last part of a live song, where the band lingers on the last note(s) before ending it. We're all familiar with it: bass and guitar shredding, cymbals swelling, culminating in that final, sweet, satisfying crash. I'm asking because my band never seems to get it right. [more inside]

Most interesting/unique studio performances of "Amazing Grace?"

I'm getting married in May. We want to play "Amazing Grace" during the ceremony. I'm hoping to find an interesting, unique, and overall awesome version to play. The funkier, the better, but traditional and beautiful versions are welcome as well. Basically, if you have a favorite performance, by a particular person or group, I'd like to know about it.

It's not Adele, or the Bee Gees

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.

Looking for a "song", maybe created by scientists, required headphones?

I am looking for a "song" and I believe it was created by scientists. About 10 min long. Headphones were required. It begins with an industrial, pulsating sound like taking a kitchen faucet and spraying it into a stainless steel bowl around and around. After a few minutes, it bursts into loud but clear music with harps and strumming of various instruments. There are no human voices. [more inside]

Name that record: dinosaurs edition

I'm trying to find the name of a dinosaur record that I listened to endlessly as a kid in 1980 or so. It was a 2-record set, I recall the covers (or the records?) being one red and one green. Songs and maybe some narrated info on various dinosaurs. I'm nearly certain it wasn't The Dinosaur Record. Anyone here happen to remember it? And if not, anyone with a tip on a shop that specializes in long-ago children's music that might be able to help me identify it?

Help me identify a song

I heard a song on the radio the other day--heavy bass, female vocalist, the bass almost made a wah-wah,pulsating sound. I couldn't catch much of the lyrics. It had something to do with dying. Maybe the word "madness" or "sadness" was in there. Still it was a great song, and I can't find the title or the band. Any ideas--it's a new song--never heard it before. I live in the DC area, and I don't recall the radio station either.

What song is this?

Heard this chorus to a song, but cannot for the life of me find what it's from. The lyrics in question are, "inside/into each other". If I was to try to replicate the melody it would be like, "iiiiinsiiide each ooother", or, "iiiintoooo each oooother." And it repeats a few times. If I was to write the lyrics for the whole song down, this phrase would be standing alone, and take its own line. Either the song is unknown, or I have the lyrics wrong, because what shows up on Google isn't the song. The song itself was sung by a female, and at a calm pace throughout with a melody of, or just a chorus melody of: Dooooo-doo, do dooooo-do. Thanks! This has been really bugging me.

In the mid-ninties, there was this techno song with a vocal instructing the listeners to raise up their hands, "raise them up."
