Does anyone know this song that has "never gonna fall in love again" in its lyrics and it has a saxophone instrumental part. It's an old song. Thanks :)

I wonder if you're thinking about the song played by Burt Bacharach & sung by Elvis Costello in the 2nd Austin Powers movie...unfortunately I've got no idea who did it originally, sorry!

It's a song from the 90's, quite uptempo, the video is a black and white male clown, the song is a male. Literally so stuck to think what it is.

I've heard this song in a shop yesterday
Late 90's - early noughties
Female song, possibly a girl group
Fun, upbeat melody, kind of catchy
Reminded me of Vitamin C, B*Witched
Possible chorus lyrics : "so (or is it keep?) carry on, carry on [...]
my way"
I've heard it before!
Help me please?

there's this huge pop/dance song, sung by someone who sounds a lot like Katy Perry, and in the chorus the singer mentions "dominos". I've heard it many times but don't know what it is... :-?

I'm looking for a new song, it's sung by a girl or possibly by a girl group. She/they (I was only able to hear the chorus) sound like Demi Lovato, or perhaps JoJo. I could only hear the line 'Why did I have to say...' repeatedly throughout the chorus.

So vague here, the other day I watched a music channel, I think it was Bliss or Vintage and this old classic came on, I couldn't stick around to hear it all but the song was a well known one from the 80's maybe?

In the video there was a guy with glasses in front of a piano and the song was a ballad I think.... :lol:

Hollister is playing this song that kinda sounds like an Olly Murs song. Does anyone know who this is? Here is a portion of the song on YouTube. Thanks!

I've been looking for this song for years and the other day it came on but I didn't get the name and forgot the lyrics. :(

It's from the early 00s and a (British?) male is the singer. It's a ballad I think. In the video the guy is in his car singing and it's raining outside and there are some scenes of his girl in a harbour getting on a Titanic-like ship. :-?

It's 4 Non Blondes - What's Up, a huge hit from the 90s by Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera, P!nk, James Blunt).

I saw this song on a club music channel, I remember the music video, but not the name of the song. I really liked it. I think it was an 80's track or maybe even an early 90's track.

It sounded a little bit like Seal and Adamski, but it wasn't either of them. I thought the guy mentioned something about life. The music video had these machines and this girl in it. It was very cheesy 80 sci-fi.
Mutya Keisha Siobhan was the best gig I ever went to!

It's alright, I found it. The song I was thinking of was Haddaway's Life

So there is this French song which was fairly big in the past (if I'm not wrong) and I always here it on the radio, but I never heard the name or the artist. It's a female singer and the only lyrics I understand are somehting like 'guayash, guayash' (and that's also the chorus) :lol:
