Hello,

Can anyone please identify the song playing in the background?

Much appreciated!

I sure as hell can't, as to hear the song I have to crank the volume up so high that my ears bleed the moment someone speaks. It took me a while to even figure out that there was music in it.

So I remember a fragment of a song, male voice, from 1987 or earlier. The chorus, if I recall correctly, features the words:
"I've seen [I saw?] lasers split the night.
Saw a rocket ship fall down from flight
and I watched an old man [something something, maybe a horse was involved?]
when I went to Istanbul."
It might not have been Istanbul, but I remember lasers split the night, saw a rocket ship fall down from flight.

I have an acoustic version of Black Dog (and it's definitely Robert Plant singing), anyone know the origin? Doesn't sound live.

My google-fu tells me that while most collectors agree that it's Robert Plant singing, there's some debate as to whether it's Jimmy Page's guitar or not. I've read that the vox are stripped off of the B-side of a bootleg vinyl known as "The Slog" and re-added to the guitar track at a later date.

Thank you anyway for trying.

I figured out what the song is. It's called "8 Ball" by Underworld.

oh my god, i have had this song stuck in my head and i can't figure it out.

the chorus goes (i think)

i don't want you
but i need you to
garbled garbled

and then it goes "and you'll be [something] ooo-wooo-oooh" in a falsetto. and the rest of the chorus is in falsetto. that's as much as i can remember.

it's a really upbeat pop song. i am not going to sleep tonight until i figure this out. halp.

Some semi-oldies (as in time period, not dated-pop-music oldies) song that I once overheard playing on a radio at a construction site: The refrain was something about "Night after night after night after day" -something, something- something-about-darkness-something-"anyway" (I know the last bit rhymed with "day"). Mellow song, acoustic guitar, I think.

Could it be Colin Hay's Overkill?

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know I'll be alright
Perhaps it's just imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Alone between the sheets
Only brings exasperation
It's time to walk the streets
Smell the desperation

At least there's pretty lights
And though there's little variation
It nullifies the night from overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
Come back another day

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know I'll be alright
It's just overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
Ghosts appear and fade away
Ghosts appear and fade away

What is it?

It's a pretty famous song - in the music video there's like a little kid who comes and plays the piano with another older guy, but I can't remember details. It's mostly on the piano. Most people recognize it the second they hear it but no one seems to know the name.
The chord progression is a basic C > A > F > G.
The first melodic phrase is E E E - EDCDEF - G G G.

Sorry for the vagueness, thanks for the help.


EDIT: Got it ID'd. It's Heart and Soul. Thanks.

There is an album by Miri Ben-Ari called "The Hip-Hop Violinist." Perhaps it could be something from that?

I'm not on a team at the moment, I might pick up mentoring some time though. I was on 294 as a high schooler though.

A million words in front of me, but I can't find the one word that I need. If I could be an open book I wouldn't be misunderstood. Every word I left unspoken is like another promise broken. I've got to put it back together" I know it's from that movie but pls I need the titled of the song and the name of the artist, or if you have it mp3 pls e-mail me at temy_timy@yahoo.com

This was actually asked back on page 4 of this thread. The short answer: Nobody knows. If you Google the lyrics, all you find is people asking what song it is. You could always try contacting someone at the movie production company.

Please, save my brain, the song is still there.

It was violining, and the tempo was quick.

Err, sorry, but that's the best I can provide.

" The Concierto de Aranjuez is a composition for classical guitar and orchestra by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo."

So, yeah, We'll need more information than that. It's an old piece, covered MANY times.

Some other (apparantly, according to wiki) famous versions are:
Ikuko Kawai ( a violinist)
Paco de Lucia (guitar)
Jim Hall (guitar)

(I picked out the ones that are possibilities)

The piece is called "Requiem for a Tower." A re-arranged version of Clint Mansell's "Lux Aeterna" from Requiem for a Dream, it was made specially for a Lord of the Rings trailer but not used in the movie.

Okay, this one is a lot odder for identification, but luckily I have more to work with.

I want to know the songs in the backgrounds of both of these Alpha Centauri secret project videos

Both from SMAC. Any idea what the songs are, or how I could figure it out.

Pretty sure all the SMAC music was produced in-house, and there's a chance there might not be any more to those tracks than that which was in the video. Composer appears to be Jeffery L. Briggs anyway.

Alright this should really be a test for you guys. I'm trying to find an electronic song which I think is quite popular.

There are no lyrics, at least none I can remember. The note progression goes:

C C D C Eb Eb Eb F G F Bb Bb C Bb Eb Eb Eb D Bb and then repeats. Help please I'm trying so hard to find this song.

Not really a Song Identification, but what kind of genre would this be?

Yknow, a kind of loungy and whispery feel to the song.

I have two! One was in a Nestlé commercial ages ago (one where a girl is looking at a chocolate on a counter and attracts it to her), and the song is more like "all I want is to be / all I want to be is me" or some such. Is sung by a girl and that part doesn't seem to have many instruments (like, only one or two) but MAYBE some kick in later after this part.

Another is a recent-ish dance song, that has rap and the chorus has a falsetto voice singing "ah ah ah ah ah ah ah aaaah" or something. It seems to me it was quite famous months ago, because I've heard it in several discos/radio stations.


I reiterate my request, and also point out the fact that the poster didn't seem to see my suggestion, because he said he found it on the page after and it was my exact answer :lol:

Being a pop song I have no clue, but that seems like Machines by Kiss Kiss.

Kay, heard this one on the radio, but the bastards, in a deviation from their norm, mentioned no title or artist or anything.
Sounded classical-ish, to be more specific, I heard two short segments, about a minute long each. They both contained only two instruments, as far as I could tell. Both had an organ, but it was a bit in the background. The first segment then had some wooden percussion instrument, and the second one had what sounded like those cymbals that are small and many in number, arranged in a circle on a wooden cylinder. I'm sure you know what kind I mean. Also, if this helps, you could hear the echo of both the percussion instruments, which made everything evenmore awesome. Any and all help is appreciated.

there's an edith piaf song someone played for me in elementary school. i remember nothing about it except that the first line of the chorus ended with the words 'o la la, belle histoire'. it was a little brisker in tempo than most of her stuff.

i'd love to track it down but i don't like piaf so much that i'm willing to listen through every clip of her until i hit the right one. any help narrowing it down would be great.

La Belle Histoire d'Amour possibly?
Spoiler:
La belle histoire d'amour

by Edith Piaf

Quand un homme vient vers moi,
Je vais toujours vers lui.
Je vais vers je-ne-sais-quoi.
Je marche dans la nuit.
Je cherche à t'oublier
Et c'est plus fort que moi :
Je me fais déchirer.
Je n'appartiens qu'à toi...

Je n'oublierai jamais
Nous deux, comme on s'aimait
Toutes les nuits, tous les jours,
...La belle histoire d'amour...
...La belle histoire d'amour...
Pourquoi m'as-tu laissée ?
Je suis seule à pleurer,
Toute seule à chercher...
Un jour où j'attendais,
J'ai longtemps attendu.
J'espérais... J'espérais...
Tu n'es pas revenu.
Je me suis révoltée.
Je me suis résignée.
J'ai crié, j'ai pleuré,
J'ai nié, j'ai prié...

Je n'oublierai jamais
Nous deux, comme on s'aimait
Toutes les nuits, tous les jours.
...La belle histoire d'amour...
...La belle histoire d'amour...
Pourquoi m'as-tu laissée ?
Je suis seule à pleurer,
Toute seule à chercher...

Quand un homme me plaît,
J'fais des comparaisons.
Je n'arrive jamais
A lui donner raison.
C'est ta voix que j'entends.
C'est tes yeux que je vois.
C'est ta main que j'attends.
Je n'appartiens qu'à toi...

Je n'oublierai jamais
Nous deux, comme on s'aimait
Toutes les nuits, tous les jours,
...La belle histoire d'amour...
...La belle histoire d'amour...
Pourquoi m'as-tu laissée ?
Je suis seule à pleurer,
Toute seule à chercher...

J'espère toujours en toi.
Je sais que tu viendras.
Tu me tendras les bras
Et tu m'emporteras...
Et tu m'emporteras...
Et tu m'emporteras...
Et tu m'emporteras...
Et tu m'emporteras...
Et tu m'emporteras...


No oh la la but the rest matches :mrgreen:
