I think it'll be OK to upload it, as long as people don't make a habit of it...

Similar to The Ordinary Boys because it is in fact The Ordinary Boys, 'Lonely At The Top'.

Hey Guys,

I heard a song on the radio the other day,but didn't catch who sang it. It was an indie, acoustic song and the male singer had a very raspy, gravelly voice.

The only line i can remember from the song was the chorus bit"she was a beauty queen, if your going to cry dont cry for me" so im guessing that maybe the song might be called Beauty Queen?!

would be great if anyone could tell me who sings this.

Heh, I think the reason nobody bothered answering that before is because it was blatantly a piss-take. :wink:

I think it came from a parody that's floating around YouTube, claiming the lyrics as "this ain't the sea, it's a goddamn arse face" or "this ain't a city, it's a goth-tard arse face"...

Ska-rock version of U2's New Year's Day. Don't particularly like it, but Asda- where i work- are constantly playing it. Making me curious to know who it is. Matisyahu?

A song i do like, that Asda are also playing is one that sounds like a cross between All American Rejects and Shiny Toy Guns.
It goes:

"Breathe in , breathe out. Let's not fight this time".

Singer songwriter type female- bit like Toi amos, Alanis, Fiona Apple with a touch of Nerina Pallot.
Lyric:

"I don't care about your plans
don't care if you're somebody's man
i look into your eyes and can tell you love me"

I would have asked in Pop but there's no What's That Song? in there. :-?

It's not really in this genre but there's this song that was used for adverts for The Chase a while back and Boots' adverts for 'Get Gorgeous This Christmas' or whatever.

I think it's French... not sure.

Heard a song on the radio several years ago (around 2003-2005), and liked it,
but I didn't pay much attention as far as the name of the song and who played it.
I was sure, though, that it was Pretenders. Then, after a while, I though I’d love to have that song; the radio station had already finished playing it. I thought it’d be easy to find, since I “knew” whose song it was, and the period when it came out. Much to my surprise, as I rummaged thru the Pretenders’ catalog, I couldn’t find it. I can’t find it ever since. I had taken it for granted the song was by the Pretenders because of the distinctive voice of Chrissie Hynde, you know; hardly can it be confused. One of the thoughts was that, since I ñouldn’t find it among the Pretenders’ songs, maybe it might be on one of Chrissie Hynde’s solo efforts.
Bad luck again. Then, there is Aimee Mann who has a more or less similar voice. Same again – no that song... :roll:
Well, the only 'remnants' of the song that remained in my mind were a chorus
melody and a handful of words (which I also wasn't too sure of, because I had never
paid much attention to the words while the song had been played). So, the chorus words were
either:

you-u-u, you see me cryin'...
ta-ta-ta-ta ta-ta-ta-ta :)

or:

you-u-u, you hear me cryin'...
ta-ta-ta-ta ta-ta-ta-ta :)


/ ta-ta-ta-ta stand for some real words /

Mot much, huh :) ...pity I can’t sing and show the melody here – that might help better…

Any ideas?
