    So there's a song I heard to on the radio once. A man was singing about his girlfriend's dog. He saids that he nicknamed the dog Coolio, (the dog's real name might have been frank) and that he thought that the dog must appreciate it. I think that it was implied the man was in a bad relationship. The singer sounded a bit like The Decemberists, and the song was slow and mellow. Reply

    There are two alternate versions of Vocaloid songs I would like to hear again but cannot find on neither YouTube nor Nico Nico and I want to know if anyone knows where I can see them again.

    One of them was a version of the Hatsune Miku Family Mart, and the change was that there would be a human male voice rapping between Miku's verses. It was around five minutes long.

    Another was a Nico Nico Chorus of Po Pi Po where it cycled through all three official versions of the song playing in the background (the three female Character Vocal Cryptoloids). A lyric would be sung by one Utaite, then the next, then the next etc., not sung by all of them at once although sometimes a few would sing at a time. I remember one Utaite was rapping in the background of this one too, although I don't believe it to be the same guy from the Family Mart video. The Utaites' avatars would come onscreen when they sung. At the end, Lamaze-P himself (I believe) showed up to sing the song.

    Would anyone happen to know where I can find these? Reply

    A song that samples part of Missy Elliott's "Work It". The part in the question is when she says "This the kind of beat that goes ra-ta-ta, ra-ta-ta-ta, ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta."

    The song I am thinking of slows down the beat a little bit, and that "ra-ta-ta-ta" sample is part of the chorus. It plays in the beginning, and I think the rapper's line opens with "Ay yo". I want to say it's Lil Wayne or Will I Am or someone else with a sort of harsh voice. I have tried to find this song but I can't! Reply

      I'm thinking Fall Out Boy's "Rat A Tat" it's not exactly like you're describing but it's fairly similar

      It is not that.


      You could try this site http://www.whosampled.com/Missy-Elliott/Work-It/

      That site was the first place I looked. It's not a direct cut-and-paste sample - the rapper/artist in the cover song does that part with his own voice. So I guess that website won't have it...

      Actually, Whosampled does also list samples that are interpolations, or, a part of a song (melody, lyrics, drums, bassline, etc.) that has been recreated from scratch.

    The song is called Whispering Hope and there are a lot of renditions online, but I can't seem to find the one that I want. It was used during the ending of a show entitled "A Crime to Remember" There wasn't a lot of background music. It would have almost been Acapella if it weren't for a steady beat in the background. I'm fairly certain the singer was African-American., but I don't know her name or if she was even credited in the credits. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Reply

      It seems like a lot of episodes of the show are up on Youtube, with the credits intact— you could try and find the episode(s) you think the song was in and check the credits. I glanced at one, and while it wasn't the song you're looking for, they did credit songs and artists used during the episode, so you might have some luck.

    I'm looking for a song that may be from the 80s or just had a retro kind of sound. I can't make out the lyrics but the chorus had a repeated phrase that sounded kind of like "hold it on the line" or "holding on tonight" or something like that (I could be way off but it definitely had five syllables). This was followed by a catchy synth line and also vocals like "oh-ohh ohh ohh". The singer was male but it was sung in a falsetto. Before anyone says it, it was definitely NOT "Hold the Line" by Toto. Reply

      A bit of a stretch, but Take Me Home Tonight by Eddie Money?

      Also a stretch, but what about "Your Love" by the Outfield?

      Peter Gabriel San Jacinto?

      It was none of those, sorry. The Peter Gabriel one was way off. The Eddie Money song was closer but it had more of a pop sound than rock (I don't think there was any guitar, just keyboard) and I think it was in a minor key.

      I just realized that the singer's voice sounded a lot like The Weeknd so it may be a song by him. I think it's more likely to be contemporary than really from the 80s.

    Song from The '80s, male singer, genre maybe rock. All I remember is the chorus consisted mainly of nonsense words and he would say the words in pairs like "eeda eeda, unga unga" though I think the rest of the song was real words. Reply

      It's possible he was saying real words and I just misheard it

      “De Do Do Do De Dah Dah Dah” by The Police?

      It’s from the 70s but, maybe “#9 Dream” by John Lennon?

      Neither one sorry

      Could it be you're remembering the "Ooga Chaka" introduction to "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede?

      Nope I checked that and it's not it. It has a faster tempo than that song if that helps

      Your clip doesn't really help much but I can't help but think of the intro to 'Rock of Ages' by Def Leppard.

      The more I think about it the more I feel it was NOT nonsense words and I am in fact remembering wrong. does the tune in my clip at least sound familiar to anyone?

      Any chance it's "Pop Muzik" By M? It's got a weird sing-song thing going on that might be what you're describing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPoiv0sZ4s4

    In 1st/2nd grade I heard a Japanese children's (presumably) song about a ghost.

    So, years and years ago, I found a song which (I'm fairly sure) had "Waltz" in the title, and I'm also pretty sure it was from an anime. I don't remember if it was the opening or ending, or any part of the name except for Waltz, and when I search "Anime Waltz" I find a looot of results and I've had no luck wading through them. The song was mostly piano, I honestly can't remember whether or not there was singing, and it was pretty sad sounding. I can only really remember what I think was the chorus, and here's a recording of my trying my best to hum it. http://vocaroo.com/i/s10E482FqI1Z Reply

    So I used to listen to this one song on youtube that was labeled as Chase the Sun by Avicii. I just went back to re-listen, and the video was gone. All the current results for Avicii Chase the Sun are a completely different song (probably the real "Chase the Sun"), and the song I'm trying to find was apparently something else entirely. Unfortunately, the song was instrumental so I can't just look up the lyrics. It was an upbeat electronic song comparable to Avicii's Holiday (here), and the video title was something like "Avicii Chase the Sun (NEW SONG 2015)" Reply

      Bump?

      I take it you've tried listening to all of the songs on Stories, his 2015 album? Maybe check some of the singles, see if it's a B-side?

      I have been listening to a lot of Avicii in the hopes that it was a case of right artist, wrong title, but no luck so far


      Just to clarify is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rA5sueAkd4 "your" version or the "real" version

      2/18/2015 EDIT: R.I.P. Lesley Gore.

      "Do It" by the Fingertips?

      nope that's way too recent

      If I remember right they sort of stretched out the word magic when they sang i.e "maaaagic colors" It might have actually been The '60s now that I think about it.

      is it Teddy Robin & The Playboys - Magic Colors?? it's from 1969... I know it's not a girl singing with a man but...

    The song was placed in a diner where the singer was cooking hamburgers. While cooking, men in animal masks and suits come in and attack her. She hits one with a frying pan, and escapes. In her music videos, these guys in masks were always in them. The singer was blonde, mid 20s (i assume) and pretty curvy. She had curly blonde hair, wore red lipstick and had a pseudo- rockabilly/1950s look. She wore leather jackets and polka dots a lot. The genre was pop/rock-ish, but wasn't mainstream because I only heard of her a couple times. I can only remember one line of lyrics: "A pretty patty, a pretty patty woah". I think it was released in 2010-2012 but no later than that. I've been looking for this since 2013, so any help would be nice. Reply

      The video for the song "Radioactive" by Marina and the Diamonds fits a lot of your criteria there. She matches the physical description pretty well (although she isn't blonde but she wears a blonde wig in the video) and she is known for her retro style. There are people wearing masks in the video and there is a scene where they trash a diner. However, there is nothing in it about hamburgers. She does sing a line ending in "woah" and it's possible you misheard the lyrics. It was released in 2012 and wasn't a huge hit but she does have a big fanbase, so you might have come across it somewhere. Give it a try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU7GoCKSQfg

      Other than that, the only song I found that was remotely close was a surreal video by an indie pop band called Best Coast. The song's name is "When I'm With You". It doesn't fit your criteria that well but it does have a blonde singer in a retro-looking outfit and there is stuff about burgers in it. Nothing else fits though so it's probably a long shot. Maybe try other songs by that band and see if any fit because it seems that 1950s is the aesthetic they go for. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nN1XzxOQWrA&feature=youtu.be

    I heard this song the other day playing in Wal-Mart. It sounded kind of like soft rock/folk. The chorus sounded a lot like "I Want It That Way" by The Backstreet Boys (not like I listen to them or anything), specifically the part where they sing "ain't nothin' but a heartache." In the song, it was a whole step (two pitches) lower than "I Want It That Way," and it went something like "ain't nothin' but love(?)," and was sung by an older male singer. The tune sounded undeniably similar, though. Anyone know what it was? Reply

      dumb question but did you try looking in the Suspiciously Similar Song page?

      Just checked, and it wasn't there. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

      This is making me think of "Nothing but Love" by Trading Yesterday, but I'm not sure

      It's definitely not that. The song I heard sounded less like country and more like soft rock/folk.

      I have definitely heard this (or something like it) because I keep thinking the same thing (and then the lyrics morph into Backstreet Boys in my head). My suggestions are Rick Nelson "Ain't Nothin' But Love" and One Direction "One Thing", which people on other forums suggested to me.

      Sadly, it's not Rick Nelson, and it definitely did not sound like One Direction. It was an older (as in age-wise) singer.

    I once over heard a song at work which had a lyric something like "there is going to be a Accident better call an Ambulance". But they pronounced it more like "HAX-ident" and they pronouced "Ambulance" oddly as well. They definately over stressed the first syllable in each word. I think by the end of the song it just him saying those two words over and over. The way he pronounced HA Xident has been stuck in my head for a decade.

    It probally was something clubish. Would have been around 2005, give or take. I think the song was about someone's lover cheating on them and there going to be an "accident" when he catches them.

    I think the person who was listening to it told me the singer was a rediculously tall, thin, drag queen.

    Reply

      Placebo's 'Infra-Red' has the lyrics 'Someone call the ambulance..There's gonna be an accident.' Not really clubish though...

      bump just cause i'm curious

      Bump because I'm curious as well.

      Yeah that sounds like Infra-Red by Placebo to me as well, the pronunciation is like that, the singer is basically how that person described them, and it was released on 2006, the only things different is that I wouldn't consider it a club song and they don't repeat those words a lot.

      is this right

      Sorry for not replying, no its not Infra-red. Unfortunately I have been unable to remember other details to help narrow it down.


      probably not it but Baader Meinhof - There's gonna be an accident?

      Bootlebat, nope. Thanks though.

      Oh well i guesss i will just have to wait til google develops a direct neuaral interface and can scan it right out of my brain.


      Could you try singing what you remember and recording it?

    This is gonna be a hard one but here goes: my dad had this record that I really liked to listen to when I was a kid circa 1990. There was this one song I really liked that was the final song on either side a or b (I forget if all the songs on the record were by the same group or not) singer was male, genre maybe rock or alternative. Can't remember any exact lyrics but I think the general meaning was something about no matter how hard he tries he can't do something. I think the band's name started with a D or a T but not sure. Reply

      One more thing that may help. I think on the same record there was the song Hazy Shade Of Winter by The Bangles Which implies it was a compilation record as I don't think they ever had a male singer

      "hazy Shade of Winter" is on they sndtrack for the movie "Less than Zero." Maybe the song is on there?

      Danzig's "You and Me (Less than Zero)"?

      That song is credited as Glenn Danzig and the Power & Fury Orchestra. Anyway, the song at the end of the A-side of the Less Than Zero soundtrack is Slayer’s cover of “In-a-Gadda-da-Vida,” so it probably wasn’t the LTZ soundtrack after all.

      thats not it

      I THINK one of the lines was something like "however hard I try" but Google turns up nothing

      Dan Hill had a hit with "Can't We Try" also in 1987 if it was a best of the year type album.

      The Bangles' "Hazy Shade of Winter" was a cover of a Simon & Garfunkel song... maybe it was someone else's cover?

      Dan Hill is not it sorry.

      The song in question sounded somewhat similar to "Hazy Shade Of Winter" if I remember right. Pretty sure it was The Bangles version of that song.

      I made a recording of me singing what little I remember of it. Not very good but might help a little. http://tindeck.com/listen/fywn

      Jason Donovan: I'm Doing Fine? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSYZrsHnFCQ

      fraid not

      One more thing that might help a little: I think the album cover had a black and white photo on it (doesn't narrow it down much I know)

      update: after looking through records with my dad (he still keeps all of them), I am pretty sure it did not start with D or T as we checked all the ones in those sections and nothing was right. Also I don't think it was compilation as he only has one such record and it didn't fit. So what I still do know is: I heard it in 1990 or so, it had a male singer, it sounded somewhat similar to "Hazy Shade Of Winter" and the general meaning of the lyrics was something about how he can't do something.

      Okay, shot deep in the dark here. "Hazy Shade of Winter" by the Bangles is a cover. It is originally from the Simon and Garfunkle album Bookends.

      Specifically look at the song "Overs".

      And I'm habitually feelin' kind of blue. But each time I try on the thought of leaving you. I stop, I stop and think it over.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uIrXfVtXbI

      It also has a black and white photo on the cover.

      That is not it sorry. The song had about the same tempo as Hazy Shade also.

      Long time bump. The more I think about it the more I think maybe the album didn't have "Hazy Shade Of Winter" on it but I am misremembering it because the song I'm looking for sounded similar

    Me: "Put your hands? That doesn't make sense"
    Auntie: "I think they said 'in the air' afterwards"
