Blues Song

I am looking for a blues song about the dangers of a black man interacting with a white woman during the Jim Crow era. I thought it was an Otis Taylor song but I can't seem to find it in his catalog. I thought the song was called "White Woman."

help a girl unwind after a long day!

i've tried to go through the numerous "looking-for-sexy-music" questions that are out there, but none seem to deal with the specific type of songs i'm looking for: relaxing, sensual songs, usually slow with sexy female vocals and minimal or unobtrusive instrumentation. think along the lines of unwinding in a steamy shower with a candle burning as opposed to music to have sex to.

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.

Greek and Greek-related (even *super-vaguely* Greek-related&mdashlike songs from "Grease") music suggestions needed!

My friends have a themed New Year's Eve dinner party every year, and I'm in charge of putting together the background music mix. This year's theme is "Greece" (because, well, it might be the last year that Greece exists *g*), so I have to come up with about six hours of music from, about, or in any way related to Greece. I need suggestions from MeFites! [more inside]

What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary?

I remember the relief of hearing Sage Francis' Makeshift Patriot for the first time in October of 2001. It was the first song that voiced my fear of possible repression in the US. I thought there would be a wave of left-wing protest songs, but it seemed to be more of a trickle. In August of 2002 Sleater-Kinney asked in Combat Rock where the protest songs were. My question is the same as theirs: What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary? I am specifically looking for protest songs by American musicians.

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.

Patriotic sing-alongs for a Fourth of July barbecue

What are some patriotic songs that everyone in a group of early-twenties college-educated people would know? Accomplished accompanist (guitar) here, looking for songs most of these folks know the words to. Open to any American music from 1800s-present that captures the spirit of America on her birthday. Great sing-alongs are totally fine even if they don't quite fit the description.

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.
