Female singers with male backing vocalists?

I really can't think of good examples of songs where women have the lead vocals and a man / group of men only jump in for the chorus / the la-la-las / whatever. (There's a song on Exile In Guyville, but that's all I've got.) Please help me out with some tunes. Thanks!

Realistic love songs

I love love and I hate most love songs. I feel that real love is incredibly beautiful in it's complexity yet knowledge of it's frailty. I want songs that express this sentiment without being cynical.

More songs for baby video, like M. Ward's "One Hundred Million Years"

I'm looking for more songs similar to M. Ward's "One Hundred Million Years" for a 20-minute baby photo/video compilation. I have found plenty of kids' songs and songs written about having children. I'm looking for more indie songs that echo the sentiment, "And this love, this love between you and I, Is older than that burning ball of fire up in the sky." Songs by indie singers about endless love, happiness, joy, the beauty of life, etc. would fit the bill. [more inside]

Is there a name for this (old-school) radio station song modification?

Back when radio stations were limited to AM/FM (no satellite, etc) I recall several occasions when individual stations in my area would alter a song if it suited their call letters. For example, WDRQ was referred as "the Q", and whenever they played Rod Stewart's "Maggie May" and got to the line "...or steal my daddy's cue" they'd stutter-repeat the word "cue" so it sounded like "Q-Q-Q". They would do the same with Brownsville Station's "Smoking in the Boys Room" ("the noon bell rings, you know that's my cue"). In a similar vein, whenever CKLW played "Fire" by the Pointer Sisters, in the line "I'm riding in your car, you turn on the radio" the word "radio" was replaced by the call letters "CKLW." Is there any specific industry term for this practice? (And, if it's not too chat-filter-y, did stations in your area do this with particular songs?)

Searching for a recently heard swinging French language kid's song.

I heard a kid's song that I would describe as French swing (a bit like the style of the Triplettes of Belleville). I didn't get a good listen to the lyrics, but two things stood out: a chorus that started with the words "Click, Clack...," and a couple of spoken interludes to someone named Michel(le), who may have been a cat. Can you name this song and artist? [more inside]

What Else is Like the Peter Gunn Theme?

The "Pink Panther" theme and the "Peter Gunn" theme are both jazz pieces created by Henry Mancini in the 1960's. But musically, how are they similar? If I add Lalo Schifrin's "Mission Impossible" theme ... is this a particular flavor or genre of jazz? If I like these as music, what other pieces (that are not necessarily theme songs) would I like?

iTunes Is Eliminating My Songs And I'd Like Them Back!

iTunes missing tracks filter: What can I do when I see the exclamation mark beside a song in iTunes and when I click on the song, I get the message "Song X could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?" Then, of course, it can't find it. So I have two questions about this: 1. How can I find the songs that are currently tagged with that exclamation mark? I *know* I haven't deleted them. 2. How do I prevent this from happening in the future? Tech details: Windows 7,about 17,000 songs, if that matters. I'm sorry if this seems elementary, but I can't seem to find a straightforward answer to this in the forums. Thank you *so much* everyone for bearing with me with this simple (but screamingly frustrating) question.

What are some songs to get over a broken heart?

To get over a broken heart (me all in, she in 65%), I'm compiling a song list on Spotify. So far, I've got "In Too Deep" by Genesis and "Some Other Time," by Bill Evans and Tony Bennett. Now I'm stuck. It seems that falling-in-love songs were more accessible to my mind than falling-out-of-love songs. Any suggestions would be greatly if not sorely appreciated. If they help anyone out there, all the better. Thanks.

What is this 90s R & B torch song?

A few weeks ago I heard a song coming out of my neighbor's window that I remember well from my youth in the late 90s -- or not so well, as it turns out. The singer is Janet Jackson or someone very similar, and the lyrics are something like, 'we can be freak (s) (y)/we won't get much sleep (?)/ blah blah blah early morn. Pretty sexy. Help!

Also like, and sharing the central, longing-filled theme of eagerness/waiting/emotional investment in a relationship that may or may not bear fruit of, Bright Eyes' "Make a Plan to Love Me" and Elliott Smith's "Say Yes". I look forward to you responses! Extra points for nominations falling under the indie umbrella.
