As long as the user, say, presses a key on his/her keyboard in sync with, say, a flashing light onscreen, a sound file will continue to play. If he/she stops pressing the key, the song stops until the in-sync keying resumes. Can I get/program/build this? [more inside]

Here's the chorus: Too "something" too far apart (?)/ somethingsomethingsomething/ The master OR capture OR rapture of the heart... That last part I imagine would be the title of the song. But yeah. That's all I got. Sorry I can't hum it for you. More details inside. [more inside]

Song from the Wire, season 1 episode 6. Here's a Youtube of the scene uploaded by someone else looking for it. It is not "Respect the Nubians" by Positive Black Soul, that comes after. It's not on the soundtrack disc. There are a lot of google hits for people looking for it but no one has found it. Do you know it?

Greetings, there was a cover of The Cure's Just Like Heaven on YouTube, sang by a girl. It was a slow version, beginning with a line of vocals, before the guitar swooped in. She used a Samson G-Track mic. I listened to it once before it disappeared. I do not remember her name and the video is gone. It was great. I want to hear it again. And again. Anyone remembers?

Calling all guitar players: Looking for popular songs that can easily be played and sung by a single person with an acoustic guitar without losing too much. Basically, the kind of songs you can put in a set list where people's reactions are to immediately say, "Hey, I really like that song," followed immediately by "and hey, that sounds pretty close to the original too!" Also, very important: Any song should be playable by a *mediocre* guitar player. [more inside]

Is someone were moving to Denver and having a celebratory party, what would be a good Denver-themed song to play at the climax of this party, i.e. as the cake is being brought out? Rocky Mountain High by John Denver is an obvious choice, but it's kind of slow, not exciting. Something like Elevation by U2 or Gold Digger by Kanye West are better, more upbeat and indirectly related to Denver, but I'd prefer something a bit more obviously connected to Denver. It should also be a song a group of 20-40 year old American geeks would enjoy.

The chorus (sung by a woman) went something like: "Affair, affair - J'taime I love." Searching for those lyrics doesn't seem to help. I heard it often on JWAVE in Tokyo in about the early '90s, but it wasn't from Japan. Anyone?
Late '90s, '98-2001, Boston, local band. A female vocalist, and the lyrics: "My name is Laura, and I am not afraid!" - "You can crush my spirit, yes, you can crush my spirit, I am not afraid!" Google has failed me, now you are my only hope...

This is definitely a long shot, but I'm looking for a weird reggae-ish song I heard on a radio a few months ago. The only things I remember about it are that it was pretty long, and the lyrics included something about "a piece of leg" and taking off your clothes. [more inside]
