Self-referential song by Mason Williams?

Self-referential song by Mason Williams or Smothers Brothers 60's 70's; lyrics about the song structure, ex: "this is the bridge, it takes you to the end of the song", verse, chorus, etc., all in appropriate places. Saw it performed on U.S. television in that era.

Coda

I'm looking to compile a collection of a certain kind of codas or outros or tags. Like, when the song is over, and the musician or band has to tie things up into a neat package, they may play something like this classic. (OK, maybe that wasn't so neat.) I'm not just looking for the well-trodden, but also for someone's unique stamp on the well-trodden. The ironic or earnest. Rock, jazz, classical — any genre! [more inside]

I Won't Give Up Finding This Song

I heard an alternate version of Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up" on the radio that had a full band playing it with him or it was a remix, but I can't find it anywhere. My googlefu is failing me. Anyone know of a way to get a copy of that version (legally)?

You are like Gibraltar in a raging storm

For the past few days I have been trying to recollect the title of the song that has the line "You are like Gibraltar in a raging storm" or something similar, in it. And I believe this is followed by the line "Are you for real? " But this could also possibly be at the end of the verses of the song. [more inside]

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]

I don't really like hip hop (with the exception of older stuff like RUN DMC and Beastie Boys).

What is this song?

Extremely vague song description: I heard a woman playing acoustic guitar in Boston at South Station tonight. She was playing a fairly famous song from the 60's or 70's. The song is sung by a male with a deep scratchy voice, like hungover whiskey voice. He is singing powerfully and it is a powerful song. Not a happy song. It's a singer's song, not so much about the music. The song is definitely famous enough, but not something you would regularly hear, or hear at all on a classic rock radio station. I picture the man singing it to have a lot of facial hair. The lyrics may contain the word 'fire' or they may not.

Which Kate Bush song is this?

I've had part of a Kate Bush (?) song in my head for days & can't get it to "finish" and identify itself. At the end (or beginning?), a man (her dad or brother?) sings the first lines of "You Always Hurt the One You Love"... "the one you wouldn't hurt at all..." Googling has failed me. What's the song?

help find a song

Looking for a song for our Wedding! I have tried the hum to identify sites, and googled like crazy with no luck. The song is new (2011) and "car commercial popular". It has no lyrics and sounds kind of like something Sigur Ros would do. I know this offers nothing, but it is like, "Ahhhh, ummmmm, aaaaaaa uuuuu". It heard it on the radio, an "alternative" station. Its starts slow and builds (all songs I guess), and is quite emotional. Men are doing the vocals, and my last little evidence is that on the movie, If a Tree Falls, toward the middle they play a short segment of a song that sounds identical to the band in question but not the song. I check every song on the credits but it is definitely not there. Thanks all!

yum, drinking tea with a dormouse

I am desperately trying to remember a song from a mix-tape around 1996 that involved a male singing in a quiet, resigned, almost-verging-on-happy-about-giving-up tone about how he was going to just stay inside and live his do-nothing life in his crappy run-down home and drink tea with a dormouse. Something to that effect. Minimalist sound, kind of plinky and plonky. [more inside]
