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.

If you know the title of this song, better let me know it!

What's-that-song-filter x 3. What's that song where a young man plays an acoustic guitar and sings "better let everyone in your life who you love know it, better let them know it, yeah, better let them know it?" And for extra credit, you could tackle two unsolved "what's that song?" questions from years ago. [more inside]

Could someone please identify these two lieder? I think they are German art songs. I can't even make out any phrase to use as a search term (so if you can, that would be great): one; two. Thanks in advance.

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.

Yes I'm ask metafiltering nineties techno. Don't judge.

In the mid-ninties, there was this techno song with a vocal instructing the listeners to raise up their hands, "raise them up." His voice was calm and could've been sampled from a movie (it was not like the more cliched sample of a dj or singer revving up the crowd, it felt almost religious). What was the name of this song?

Trip hop song with male vocalist stuck in my head

Downtempo/Trip Hop/Chillout song stuck in my head in a huge way. It's something I've heard dozens of times before but now, of course, I can't identify it. It's got a male vocalist, possibly British-sounding. The song is somewhat popular - it may be on a bunch of compilations and chillout/downtempo internet radio stations. [more inside]

Coda

Hawaiian music for my grandfather's funeral?

My grandfather is 91 and we're helping him plan his funeral. At it, he wants Hawaiian music played. Apparently it's the music he used to hear at dances (in New Zealand) when he met my grandmother in the late 30s/early 1940s. According to the BBC, there was a fad for Hawaiian music in wartime Britain, especially a band called Felix Mendelssohn and his Hawaiian Serenaders, but I can't find much by them. Any ideas? I guess it would be a slow dance kind of song. [more inside]
