Are there any well-known songs that were (or might have been) recorded while the artist was stoned/wasted/tripping/etc? Not counting concert performances, unless the song charted. [more inside]

Last night I heard a great version of this song recorded by what sounded like a string quartet. Does anyone know anything about this cover? Google has failed me.

For a Friend: What are some songs about about people who used to see eye to eye, but now they hate each other and can't understand each other? Or about righteous people trying to smash down lower people?

Many years ago, WGBH (NPR) in Boston had a Saturday afternoon folk music program. One day they played exerpts from an album by a singer/guitarist who had recorded rude songs that children sing when they think that there are no adults around. Who could this be and what is name of the album?

Does anyone know the URL of a site where you entered a band you like and it showed connections to other bands based on a recommendation system? The whole thing was done in flash and looked very cool.

This song is about a letter found in the glove compartment of a used car (maybe a chevrolet) The letter says something to the effect that "If you read this, I have died." Want to get this song as a Christmas present for my dad.

Some guy once impressed me by humming the theme from "The Munsters" and joining it seamlessly with "If I Were a Rich Man" from "Fiddler on the Roof." In idle moments, I try to repeat this amazing feat, but I can't figure out how the songs fit together. [more inside]

I'm looking for weed-related songs to listen to. I'm thinking along the lines of Ben Harper's "Burn One Down", Tom Petty's "Last Dance With Maryjane" or Sublime's "Smoke Two Joints". Try to stick to chillin', rock-type songs as opposed to Hip Hop (but if you've got a Hip Hop one that you love feel free to add it to the list). Thanks in advance!

What are some songs that remind us to be thankful for our good fortune? Just the fact that you are sitting at a computer reading this probably puts you in the top 10% of wealthy people in the world.
I'd like to make a CD of songs that have a positive message about appreciating and being thankful for what we've got.
I remember singing as a child:
"Be thankful for the good things that you've got.
The good things that you've got are for many just a dream,
So be thankful for the good things that we've got."
That's the jist I'm going for, but not children's songs.

I need karaoke song suggestions suitable for my voice. My range is somewhere between Bass and Baritone. I can go higher, but it's difficult for me to keep in the right octave, and I almost always end up dropping songs made for Tenors down an octave or two. Examples: Blink 182 songs, Inside Out, even Creed songs I tend to lower without realizing it. [more inside]

: a friend into shortwave radio picked up this song
over the airwaves, recorded it to tape for posterity, and has been transfixed since -- but doesn't know what it is or who's singing. It's a long-shot, but can someone ID this?

I'm looking for the lyrics to the "Ballad of the MI Soldier." It was a joke military song about the stereotypical qualities of intelligence professionals. I had it a while back, but can't find the disc it was on. I tried googling, but it doesn't produce anything useful.

I would like help with the identify of a song I heard on NPR a few years ago.
It was something of a "metasong" with lyrics stating the part of the song currently being sung. Such as "this is the bridge" and "Here comes the chorus".
I would like to hear this song again.
