Songfilter: There was a song that I was listening on the radio a while back that I'd like to listen to again but my google-fu is failing me. The song is a little slow with light female vocals, and one of the lines in the chorus was or sounded like "I assume, I assume, I assume." Does this ring a bell to anyone?

Can anyone tell me the name of the sketch from Kids in the Hall in which they do a musical act in the style of old stage shows climbing up stairs and such? The song consisted of people just singing the partsof the song to show how formulaic it was, such as "chorus" and "bridge." If you can find me a video of it, that would be even better.

Can you name any songs or movies which feature palindromic structures? In terms of music, I don't mean notes or lyrics, but the sections, eg, CVCBCVC. Movie patterns would be more loose, but one could be settings, eg, starts out in a house, then a car, then a plane, etc, ends in a car, then a house. Another pattern could be the entrance/exit of characters. [more inside]

Camarero something something me muero de sed: What is the name of this Spanish language song about being at a bar on the beach and trying to get the waiter's attention for a drink? I last heard it in 1995 and expect it was made only a few years earlier. I thought the name was just Camarero, but I am not getting the right song by Google. The singer is male, the music generically Latin, and I am pretty sure you hear the drink being opened.
