i've been unsuccessfully trying to find a version of "I Shall Be Released". apparantly there are over 80 different recordings of this song, way too many to search out on my connection.
The version i'm looking for was performed by (as i remember) a man, sounding not too dissimilar to paul weller, with an acoustic guitar.
Any ideas?

Another song ID, please!

Can someone please tell me the song which is being parodied in the new Halifax advert? Where they're all dancing around Bollywood style to "Make your money WORK just a little bit, SAVE just a little bit, BLAH just a little bit" or whatever it is. It's driving me nuts, I know I should know it, but I've got no clue.

Thanks...

I haven't seen the ad but that sounds like Liberty X.

Oh my god. I am so ashamed. I think I like a Liberty X track. Shoot me now.

Well, at least I like the Halifax version!

kate, Wednesday, 4 June 2003 09:43 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

it's ok Kate, that's easily the best song Liberty X have in their repertoire...but that shouldn't make you shy away from getting the album (and then lending it to me).

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Wednesday, 4 June 2003 09:59 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Dude, when YOU buy the album, you may make me a mixtape that has the song on it. ;-)

kate, Wednesday, 4 June 2003 10:03 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

and then fill the rest with Avril and Pulp, right? Done!

Although...what is this "tape" of which you speak? I'm not sure I have a clue what that is.

I can testify that the Liberty X LP is a thing of great pop-ness, my wife never stops playing it, and I'm always having to chuck it out of the CD player to put something else on. But I'm not averse to it. Wish it had that Richard X / Liberty X "Being Nobody" mix on it though - expect a 'special edition' in the shops by July...

What is the original synth pop tune that is sampled in the track playing in this vid?

The answer is something really obvious, but I can't get it in my head.

I heard a song in a grocery store last week. I am fairly ignorant about pop music - before I started trying to track this song down I wouldn't have known the difference between Rihanna and Lady Gaga - and I don't know any of the lyrics.

- more R&B than anything, but with a slow 4/4 kick dance beat - possibly around 110bpm
- female singing, possibly some auto-tune, but it was subtle.
- T.I. style "heyy" "ooohhh"s every few lines.

this description sound a lot like T.I.'s Live Your Life, but I'm certain that this wasn't the song, both because the beat is way different, and because I had heard the T.I. song before, and feel I would have recognized it immediately. I also remember it being faster and more upbeat than Live Your Life is. I've listened to every remix of Live Your Life I could find, but all of them seemed too fast and trancey. It was definitely a good club song, though.

I've been through all of the iTunes top charts, and I just don't hear it. I ask myself what could be big enough to be on the grocery store's satellite radio feed, but isn't on any iTunes Top Charts?

A friend describes to me a vaguely bluesy song he heard on KZXK (excellent commercial free classic rock format out of Doney Park, AZ) with lyrics that go something like "I got love in my heart for drugs". He says "Shoot me up with soul" was another line. Google has been no help, and of course the radio station barely has any web presence- though I did find it is owned by a very interesting man named Ted Tucker. I think he creates all the playlists, but I can't find much information on him, either. Please help?

I woke up with the beginning of a piece of music I can't quite place in my head.
it's a two chord piano sequence, similar to the piano in James Blake's 'Limit To Your Love' but it's not that song. I'm almost certain it's the lead track from an album from an established act that came out within the last ten years. at first I thought it might Ambulance by Blur because the chord sequence is similar, but there's no piano in that song.
I know that's vague. but can anyone help?

yesterday i was listening to a spotify playlist, and after the playlist ended it kept going on into the mystery bonus radio thing that takes the last few songs in the playlist and tries to find other songs in the same vein.

so a song came on that i wasn't familiar with. i didn't catch the artist but the title was something close to "indian reservation", and the lyrics were mostly about going back to missouri. it sounded like it was from the late 60s or early 70s, kind of in the r&b/soul style, mid-tempo, chill.

anyone know it? i tried to look back in my spotify listening history on my phone but it only shows the songs from the playlist i was listening to, not the extended bonus radio tracks that played afterward.
