Song that goes something like AABBCCDD (literally)?

I have part of a song stuck in my head. The lyrics I can remember are something that sounds like "A A, B B - CCDD, CCDD" - that is literally what is being sung, it's not the rhyme scheme. Who is the artist and what is the track called? [more inside]

Song ID: something about liking/not liking popcorn?

It's sung by a woman in some kind of retro rock-y style that I can't quite articulate. It's a list of foods that girls either.. like or don't like, and the chorus is about popcorn.. I think. Challenge: pretty sure this is from a Portland, OR band, as I heard this on the local Portland-centric radio station KZME. [more inside]

Help ID this dubstep track based on lyrics...

There's an old song I had favorited on, but I no longer see it in my favorites. It's got a bit of a dubstep (original twostep/garage style, not "brostep") feel. The lyrics are something sung through a vocoder or voxbox, or maybe even synthesized. Definitely through electronic effects. "Lo-ove you, need you, ho-old you, clo-oser... I .. need... you right now" Or something to that effect? on the first two beats of each line, I think there's a half-step or so glide up (i.e. where I have the '-' in the words) The song starts with this sort of vocal stuff with keyboards.

What's that song with those words and that music?

Song ID: It was maybe ten years ago on the "alternative" station, and was more talking than singing. I only remember a couple of words. The line that I kinda [sorta, almost] remember is something like "... she unbuttoned my fly ... it was the longest thirty seconds of my whole life." [more inside]

"I've been driving around. / Can't believe I'm getting older." Yet another ID-this-song question.

"I've been driving around. / Can't believe I'm getting older." Looking for a vaguely Red-House-Painters-sounding song with these lyrics that some coworkers of mine used to play. This would have been around 2001, in SE Michigan.

Song ID: Indie/Electronic "love song"

Song ID request for help: Some time ago I was listening to an indie rock radio station (probably 89.3 the Current) and I heard a song that I really enjoyed. I wrote down the date/time it was played and as many lyrics as I could get down. Unfortunately, I have since lost the slip of paper and have only a few scant clues to go off of. Here's what I remember: - It was a heavily digitized (vocoder?) voice, and sort of electronica-y, in the sort-of indie rock fashion (not like in the club or at a rave fashion). -The chorus included the lyrics (as best I can recall) the following fragments: "even though you really love [him/her]" and "...only causes you pain." I know how terribly little this is to go off of, but I figured if I had a shot anywhere, it would be here!

Please help me identify this song, so I can buy it from Amazon and listen to it a thousand million times and maybe someday put it on a mix cd!

Hivemind, can you help me identify this song? Beat : strong, very danceable. Vocals : female, thick (like honey). For part of the song, she ends each line with "uh huh." I feel like it's a (recent) popular song, but every time I hear it, there's too much ambient noise for Shazam! to identify it.

Song ID: "but in a hundred years, I'll be right here..."

[SongID filter] So I heard a song while shopping in the Banana Republic outlet store this morning, and I really liked it. [Don't judge me, Judgy Judgerton...] It sounded a lot like the Magnetic Fields (I'm still half-convinced the voice was Stephen Merritt), a little like M Ward, a little like Jens Lekman. It had a bunch of jangling bells, some shushy instrumental bedding, and the only lyric I can remember being repeated: "but in a hundred years, I'll be right back here." It's not a lot to go on, but by your powers combined ...
