I heard a snippet of a Radiohead song on one of their DVD's and I was wondering if anyone knew what it is.

I would be very grateful if you could help.

stolen from youtube comments:
"The song at 4 minutes in this video has never been released in studio but has two alternate working names and has been played twice live, both in soundcheck, once at the Rosebud Theatre in Pittsburgh in 1998 and once at Blossom Music Centre in Cleveland in 2001.
Scrap setlists from each concert show it being called the first time "Wanderer Song" and the 2nd time "Nomad Song" and is an instrumental over 4 minutes long. Hope that helps!"

What orchestra performs this version of Turkish March, and how can I get it (or any orchestral version of that song, as opposed to piano only)? The information at the bottom the video is simply incorrect.

I cant remember who sings this song or how it goes or even if i have the right lyrics, but here goes.

The song talks about how listening to a song you are enjoying someone else's pain/suffering. I can't recall if a man or woman sings it but I'm leaning towards a man.

I can't really remember anything else, but if anyone knows anything, it would be greatly appreciated. I will update/edit if i remember anything or figure it out.

Thanks

The only thing I can think of is She is Suffering by the Manic Street Preachers ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTKmFLFNRnE)

But, can you tell something about the genre or style? Would make it easier.

I once heard a remix of the Ground Force theme tune with an Eminem song and I am sad because I cannot find it.
Even worse: I cannot find ANY remixes of the Ground Force theme tune. This is criminal!
Help me, internet!
In fact, any remix of the Ground Force theme tune would be smashing.

I also have a request: I heard a really energetic song in a mall, female singer, mainly guitar and percussion, says "come on baby, come on baby, rock my mind" in the refrain. Resembles Meja someway, but isn`t. Searched all over the google, no results (

First 40 seconds, and the classical music at 2:00. I don't need to know the name of the piece at the beginning, but I at least want to know what other trailers it has been in.

Thing starting a little bit earlier than 2:00 is a song from Requiem For A Dream OST called Lux Aeterna.

Also, from the YouTube comments, first 40 seconds is Thomas Newman - Dead Already.

Ok, I've got one. A song I heard Saturday night in a club.

It starts of with an air-raid alarm (I think), it has a drum loop similar to this one and a sort of sweeping bass line. Not much else, it's also too slow to do some serious dancing to. Any ideas?

This one was on Sesame Street. There are two girl Muppets and a guy Muppet. The girls sing the Doo-Doo parts and the guy sings Manamana. It goes.

Manamana
Doot-doo da doo-doo
Manamana
Doot doo-doo doo
Manamana
Doot-doo da doo-doo da doo-doo da doo-doo da doo-doo
Doot doot doo doo doo

then the guy sings
Wawah wawah wawah
Wawah wawah wa

The girls give him a dirty look for hamming it up and he goes back to
Manamana

I think it was popular song back in the sixties.

Oh, I didn't even have to google that to know the name of that song. I also didn't have to google it to know that it first appeared in an Italian porno. That stuck in my mind because it's, like, the best song to appear in a porno ever.

Here's a request:

Firefly, episode 6 - Our Mrs. Reynolds. What's the song in the background when Saffron gives Mal the wreath and has him eat the berries or whatever?

It's purely instrumental and I'm pretty sure it's not a song written specifically for/from the series. It's a very familiar tune, at least to me.

Help, anyone? (While I try and snag a clip of what I'm talking about...)

Hello I have a request, for the song attached. It's been stuck in my head for the last week or so and I want to find some sheet music for it. I wrote a few bars in in the attachment but I'm looking for the whole song. Anyone know what the name of this song is?

Thanks

I should probably add that it's been 18 years since I was 7, and the song still occasionally gets stuck in my head.
