Anyway my last three were:

Wally Badarou - Mambo
Alkaline - Juggernaut
The Church - Under the Milky Way

my actually non-trolling non-disappointed answer is
1: Lennon Stella -- BREAKAWAY
2: The Prodigy -- TIMEBOMB ZONE
3: Quantic and Alice Russell with the Combo Barbaro -- LOOK AROUND THE CORNER

(3 was back in march and i don't at all remember where i heard it or looking it up or that these ppl even existed, is it in a film or something?)
(2 i feel i shd have recognised! but my actual memory is very sluggish these days and i often can't quite reach the name of something playing that once i knew EXTREMELY well)
(1 was something a friend sent me to identify, via a question her friend were all asking one another on pinterest, i guess none of them had heard of shazam)

the various unknown ones that didn't register have almost all been orchestral soundtrack instrumental that VERY MUCH RESEMBLED well known composed-music classics by mahler or orff or some bullshit but were actually i suspect just faked-up soundy-likeys

A fucking Shakira song. For my kid. Now she plays it on repeat. I loathe Shakira

nathom, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:00 (two weeks ago) link

my son is a Shakira fan, lol he still plays that world cup 2010 song!

calzino, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:22 (two weeks ago) link

what does Shazammed mean in the context of this thread? i'm old, tired and too lazy to go on urban dictionary.

calzino, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:24 (two weeks ago) link

I'm a weirdo that uses Soundhound instead.

The first two of these were at a restaurant, and the last I think was at a grocery store:

Gerald Levert - Casanova
Ian Gomm - Hold On
Courtney Jaye - Can't Behave [without DJ Quik] (This title confuses me, because it doesn't seem like the type of song that would have ever featured DJ Quik)

MarkoP, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:27 (two weeks ago) link

Calzino, it means using the Shazam app to identify a song that's playing

Josefa, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:28 (two weeks ago) link

ah right. sounds pretty good tbh.

calzino, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:42 (two weeks ago) link

Are you guys typing these in? You all realize you can just hold down on the song title in the app, it’ll bring up a “copy” bubble and you can just paste it into Zing or Flagging

I have no recollection of that Shaun song but listening again and it's apparently a k-pop song with that retro faux-cha cha 8 bit thing... kind of like Dram's Cha Cha or Drake's Hotline Bling. I love that particular kind of sound. I guess it would've gotten stale fast if it had become a bigger trend.

Does Shazam have geolocation to tell you where exactly you heard a song? I don't really frequent places that play k-pop in mexico. I don't even know any that do... probably heard it in a clothing store.

Seeing my kid love it so much, I have grown to like it too. Lol

"waka waka" is a good song!

dyl, Saturday, 2 November 2019 16:20 (two weeks ago) link

the last one I can remember was Michael Brun & Kah-Lo - Spice

The World According To.... (Michael B), Saturday, 2 November 2019 16:29 (two weeks ago) link

for me these are

1. j balvin & bad bunny - la canción
2. paula abdul - forever your girl
3. cigarettes after sex - falling in love

situations being

1. at mexican restaurant for (former) cow*rker's goodbye gathering. i knew *of* the song before due to being aware of the j balvin/bad bunny album but hadn't actually heard it -- really liked it a lot.
2. one of the lousy classic hits stations in my city is finally starting to work more material into its dusty playlist. i was pleasantly surprised to hear it play another paula abdul song besides "straight up" (very rarely they'll also do "opposites attract") but didn't remember which song it was. (i was at w*rk where radio is our only allowed option for music.)
3. this was playing on the noncommercial/community station. actually enjoyed it + promptly posted about it on ilm after lol

dyl, Saturday, 2 November 2019 16:30 (two weeks ago) link

la cancion is indeed excellent

kanye kendrick frank kendrick frank kanye (voodoo chili), Saturday, 2 November 2019 16:44 (two weeks ago) link

a top single of the year for me, easily

dyl, Sunday, 3 November 2019 04:43 (two weeks ago) link

1. The Stroppies - Cellophane Car (heard this on Basque radio, and it's such a huge Stereolab rip-off I had to know who and what it was)
2. Elissa - Ya Merayti (used under some documentary I believe)
3. Townes van Zandt - Nothin' (MOR radio)

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 4 November 2019 11:33 (two weeks ago) link

1. Galantis - “No Money”
2. Peter and Gordon - “A World Without Love”
3. The Ritchie Family - “The Best Disco in Town”

Mr. Snrub, Monday, 4 November 2019 18:22 (two weeks ago) link

"best disco in town" is such a time capsule
