Help me identify this song Google has never heard of!

I've had the chorus of this song semi-stuck in my head for years and when I finally thought to Google it yesterday, I came up with nothing. Well, almost nothing. So I'm counting on somebody here to finally help me identify the mysterious "ooh girl, lost in time" song. [more inside]

Can you think of other hip hop tracks that sound like this?

I don't really like hip hop (with the exception of older stuff like RUN DMC and Beastie Boys). However, once in a while I come across some tracks that I really enjoy, like these two songs by Wiley and this one by Azaelia Banks. Any other artists / tracks with a similar vibe that I should be listening to? [more inside]

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]
