The first track in this thread is still the best thing he's done. He was better when no-one knew who he was.

HELP!
The song samples Robyns - Be Mine!
It's her chorus on the song, kind of like that Jason Derulo song.
A girl raps the verses!
I need this song in my life right now.

All I know is the Robyn part, it's just like you'll never be mine.

Oh i have another one....

I have this one song which i LOVE and it has to be from the early 00s and it goes something like this..

"shorty had me sitting on the corner like WOW
shorty had me thinkin ..... like wow?
see her on the block in the early light (?)"

Hes a male singer. I have it on three diffrent mix cds, so i guess, it was popular. :-?
I have the song but i just wanna know, who sings it.

And another one:

Its a male singer and he sings...

"some may say, its a big mistake
u gotta quit playing games with the honey
.... going through some heartbreak
she will never be yours, so dont waste ur time
u gotta look at the bigger picture
somewhere down the line
i disagree, im doing fine...its all in your mind
her touch is somethign i just cant deny

Something in the way,.... u make feel when u here with me
........"

Its on another mix cd but the songs go into each other, so thats the onyl part i have before it goes to the next song. I tried google for both songs but nothing seems to come up. Maybe someone can help.....Thanks

:D Hi guys please help:

A guy sings this song and it's about the paparazzi always following him.
This is the only line I remember (the chorus)

"What if I was camera shy?"

and another one - but this was more alternative (but maybe you guys like that music too)

Female singer:

"Youre a serial killer, "super lanky lover (?)" - it's so exciting. "that you are ok (?)" and I want to kill you"

Lool it was strange but it was a love song.

Thanks

Thanks! Will this be a single or anything? I can see it being huge. Rye Rye and Robyn should record an album together.

I don't know if I can open this topic here, sorry if I can't.

So, I had an intro of a song stuck in my head, and I can't remember what song it is.

The intro is a voice (male or female) saying a thing like "Pow p-p-p-p pow pow p-p-p-p-pow" and it sounds like a motorbike which is slowing down.

Then the song starts, and I think it's a girl who's singing in english.

Help me please icon_lol.gif

EDIT : I forgot to tell this is a REALLY annoying voice

I was at the gym today and i heard half of a R&B track, and i cant find out what it's called.

there is a man rapping/singing and then the chorus is a woman and she sings: "you can be a star, you can go far, la-de-da"

thanks in advance

Ok, I was watching a Kylie Minogue interview from 2003, and an Rn'b song came on in the background, that was popular around that time, and I can't for the life of me remember what it is! Here is the link: The song starts at 37 seconds into the video, and ends at 46 seconds. Can anyone help me?

^Oh my guava!!! I forgot all about this song! Thank you SO much for telling me! I used to love it. I heard it on the radio quite a bit around that time. I can't believe I forgot it. It sounds like a "Neptunes/Pharrell" production. I miss this sound. :D

OK, I'm feeling awful cos I can't find a lady's identity.

I was watching in the TV some concerts from Montreux Jazz Festival and I missed her name in the beggining.

It's a black woman in her 40/50's, wearing sunglasses (:lol:) and she was singing what seemed to be disco tracks. I recognized two of them:

- Proud Mary
- Papa Was A Rolling Stone

After this singer, Ike Turner came to the stage.

I found this site that shows all the artists in the 2002 festival, but I CAN'T FIND HER since I don't know her name or her stage.

On YouTube I didn't have luck either.

Someone? :(

Okay, okay, okay....if anyone can help me with this song, you'll have all of my love + I'll sport a 100x100 pixel avatar of your fave's face!

It's a current R&B song (from 2012, '11 the latest). It's a DARK song, about a bad relationship and the singer, she sounds very similar to Beyonce, Rebecca Ferguson.

She mentions the word "lightning", and I believe the chorus goes like
Who's going to be the one....
