Looking for an equivalent to Songza as it was in jukebox format, not internet radio/streaming/build your own station format. Essentially, I want to be able to link to any specific song and share that link with anyone. Bonus if the link is compatible with most social networking sites (Google+, Facebook, etc).

Name that song! Instrumental. Very recent. Overheard on the radio and in stores/restaurants where they typically play indie/alt rock. Bouncy. Very strong bassline. Kinda reminds me of Air. [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.

"I'm really enjoying Melanie Safka's Brand New Key right now for a particular mood I'm in.

I never thought I'd say that, and I always thought it was baloney. [more inside]
