Musicfilter: does anyone know the name of the new Ying Yang Twins song where the guy is whispering? It's sort of the exception that proves the rule, if you know what I mean.

I'm looking for a song. Not a specific one, but that fits the following: Something a bit retro 70s/80s, but not dated; energetic, with lots of life, and a little rock-starish. Along the lines of Electric Light Orchestra's "Do Ya".
Any suggestions from music buffs? My personal collection doesn't match this style, so I don't even know where to begin.

In the spirit of many "best [mood] songs" questions that have been asked... I need suggestions for songs fit for making out and well, taking it further if required. What are the sexiest songs you've heard?

Does anyone know of a website that lists songs and the tracks they stole samples from? My googlefu has failed me.

Six Feet Under's third-season episode "The Trap."
What is the song Nate's singing out the car window along with the car radio as he and William Aaron Jaffe blast down the road? Ralph Covert and the Bad Examples' "Not Dead Yet"?
If not, does anyone know what it is?

Best breakup music? Not
to get over it and cheer one up, but to wallow in the misery and pain of loss. After all, there are only a few times in ones life when those love songs really
hit home, so why not get something out of it. [more inside]

It's obscure-songs-from-French-movies time! The film "Cléo de 5 à 7" has a haunting tune sung by Cleo about halfway through called "Without You", which I cannot elaborate on much further except that some of the lyrics are about an empty house and (I think) the wind blowing through it. Since the soundtrack does not seem to exist any longer, is there any way I can get my hands on it anymore? Has someone in subsequent years covered it?

In episode 3 of Lost (which, by the way, rocks my cock) there's a nice, kinda mellow song that plays at the end of the episode. Does anybody know who it was? My Googling has brought me nowhere. [more inside]

When did "God Bless America" replace "Take me out to the ballgame" as the seventh inning stretch song in baseball? Is this just a NYC thing for the ALCS? Or did crackerjack sue someone?

I'm making a music playlist, the theme of which is music piracy. What songs would you recommend for it? Things like Bow Wow Wow "C30, C60, C90, Go" or I guess anything with words like "free" or "copy" in the title...

Every year I run a caravan from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for the annual Defcon hacker convention. We net about 50 cars and run a micropower radio station out of the pace car to keep them all up to date. Since listening to traffic updates for three hours isn't very compelling we liven up the mix by throwing down a mix of road trip friendly music spooled off a laptop in the off times.
Basically, I've played DJ [spinning everything from techno to punk to country] for the past five years and I'm starting to run out of fresh ideas. I thought I'd ask the collective at Ask.MeFi what they like to listen to when they take a road trip. Genre isn't an issue, as long as it has a driving beat I'd be likely to use it. Thanks!

What song is this? I was walking behind two teenage African-American girls one day and overheard them singing a song. I didn't catch all of the words but it contained parts that went something like "Ladies in the front, let me [see/hear] you [blank]" Ladies in the middle let me [hear/see] you [blank]" Ladies in the back ... etc."
It sounded like one of those songs that get everyone involved on the dance floor complete with shouting back responses etc.
What is the name of the song and who sings it? It's driving me crazy!!

Songs about the Assassination of JFK
How can I find out who might be interested in a particular collection of 45 rpm records? They are mostly folk songs and all of them are songs written about the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

I'm looking for a list of all lists of WBRU's "12 Cuts Above the Rest." I've e-mailed the station, and searched Google for hours. Does anyone know if such a list exists, and if so, where I can find it? I'm 99% sure that WBRU used to have a searchable archive, but after the site redesign a while back, it went missing.
In actuality, I'm looking for a song that was incredibly popular on WBRU during late 1999 or early 2000, being on the "12 Cuts..." list for over 3 months. The name of the band escapes me, and I think the song title included the word "morning." But the band's music was never released in the United States.
