Hi all i heard a song the other night i havent a clue what or who is it.

Some of the lyrics -

"I can see you coz' your mine...you didnt want a man right now...best thing that could happen...sweet and calm...i can see you and me sitting in a tree".

Its a bloke singing the main lyrics with a female accompanying him with a few words which she repeats.

Thanks guys.

OK this is a LONG shot but it gets played on the radio a bit and I searched on the net and couldn't find anything. Its a new r'n'b girl group song, quite funky and the chorus is mostly the lyrics "Lover Like This" over and over again! Could anyone help? :P xx

Hi, and happy new year. Really liked this song but only remembered 1 line of it. Went "Wow.... Control it guy, roll it guy". Any Ideas?

Cheers in advance

Anyone see Soul Britannia? BBC 4 Fri 9pm. I didn't really. Just flicking between Ugly Betty breaks. Just caught the end credits. Anyone know what song it is? It's a sort Massive Attack type song. I only remember one line 'hole in my soul', but a google lyrics search turned up Aerosmith, which it is not!

Cheers

I just heard a song on Choice FM, R&B by a female vocalist, the main lyric of the chorus was:

"Why do I believe in heaven or hell?
Why do I believe in heaven, when I'm in hell?..."

And it was fantastic.

Can anyone help?

This is probably wrong- only song I can find with lyrics like this is

Raekwon - Heaven And Hell

I was in a shop the other day and heard a song playing although it was very quiet.It had a funky beat to it and it seemed to include lines from other 80's/90's songs also I think i heard the line "all night long I'm gonna give it to ya" as in the old classic Mary Jane Girls track, wish I'd listened to it more closely but you know how it is when us women get distracted whilst shopping LOL.Oh by the way it was a female singer.Please help me find the title for this song its driving me nuts!
Thanks in advance

"blah de dah getting in my nerves all day long"

The music video is kind of all white with a rapper, that's all i remember.

A girl group sings it, and a female rapper raps.

I'm looking for the name of a R & B song. In the song eminem raps a little and there is a female chorus that says something like "fell the vibe". Can somebody say me the title of the song? Thanks in advance.
