Songs that remix dialogue from films?

PF Project's song Choose Life is constructed from samples of a monologue by the lead character of the film Trainspotting. Similarly, This Is Your Life by the Dust Brothers is built around samples from the film Fight Club reformulated as a monologue and overlaid on some trip-hop beats. Neither was actually featured in the film, but were released as singles and appeared on the soundtrack. What other songs like this are there?

Slowdancing through two decades of tunes...

I run a Slowdance Night every few months, complete with dancecards, a mirrorball, and designated dancers (for the wallflowers). It's a fabulous time, but here's my problem. The music that hooks my nostalgia ends in the late 80's, early 90's. After that, for some reason, I kind of stopped listening to music. Thus, my playlist climaxes with a lot of 80's songs. But I've been noticing the demographic has been skewing younger the past couple of dances. Could you suggest some slowdance songs and ballads from the last two decades that I might dovetail into my established set? Thanks.

Updating your own copyrighted work

I have written a number of songs that I have gotten copyrighted through the US Copyright Office. Each copyright runs between $35-$45 to have done. If I change the lyrics or add a verse to one of my songs, do I have to go through the whole process again to re-copyright the updated version of the song including paying the fee, or I am still safe because the original song is copyrighted?

Please help me identify these songs!

So I recently came to the end of correcting all the ID3 tags on my massive music collection. The last 14 or so took me more time than I'm willing to admit to track down information on. But I knew at the end which two would remain. I've had these two songs in my collection for at least a decade now, and every time I've tried to find any information on the song titles, artist, or even lyrics, I've turned up nothing. I've tried all kinds of tricks I know for finding even the most obscure information on the internet, but still nothing. As a firm believer that anything which exists can be found on the internet, I find myself troubled that these songs, which clearly exist, apparently do not. Help me out, and try to cure my madness?

What are the songs in this video?

Please help me identify the songs in this video and this video. Curiosity is killing me. I know the last one in the first video is a CSS remix of "Men's Needs" by The Cribs and I definitely recognize the solo intro from "Sweet Child O' Mine", but the rest are too distorted for me to figure out.

Colorado Songs

A friend of mine needs Colorado songs. That is to say, she is looking for songs either (preferably) about Colorado or by Colorado bands. Yes, John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" we know; also Bob Seger's "Get Out of Denver." Also thinking of The Fray and a few others; but does anybody know any songs about Colorado or Colorado places?

Carrot on a stick

I'm trying to track down a song I remember hearing on the local college station about 10 years ago (WDBM in East Lansing, MI). I think some of the lyrics were along the lines of "Consider / all the carrots you've been fed / and now they're your ______ ______ / And consider"....etc. I'm 95% sure it was a guy singing, and I think the song had something to do with being led through life by "carrots" of dubious merit. Google hasn't yielded the answer - thanks!

Heat Miser vs. Jesus

Hi, this is Mr_Zero's daughter. I just listened to King Herod's Song from Jesus Christ Superstar. Recently, my dad had me watch The Year Without Santa Claus which features two catchy tunes by the Miser brothers. Is it me or does King Herod's Song sound just like a double speed Miser song? I have limited music understanding as I have only played violin for 4 years. However, the two songs sound very much alike to me. Has anybody else made this correlation?

What song ends with "I'm getting closer to my woman"?

A few years ago my girlfriend and I were in a bar and heard a song -a late-'60s/early '70s blooze-rock number a la Bad Company or someone like that - which ended with a seemingly endless refrain comprised of the lead singer repeating "I'm getting closer to my woman." It's turned into an in-joke with us, and I'd like to put it on a mix for her, but endless Googling hasn't turned it up. Anyone have any idea what song it might be?

We're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine, and the machine is bleeding to death..

I rarely pay attention to lyrics in a song - when I do, it's usually because of strong imagery or a really twisted message. I'd love to find songs now based on lyric recommendations - what are your favorites? Powerful, or hidden, or just especially memorable. And not limited to any particular genre nor subject, either. I just want songs that will make me pause and think over what I heard, rather than go "Ahh, pretty sounds!"
