Name That Tune (Really Difficult One)
 
Greetings music lovers. It's FAX.

Listen, I am experiencing a serious predicament and if there's one thing I hate, it's a ding dang serious predicament. I much prefer the far less stressful postdicament which allows you some time to reflect on how you escaped.

In this case, though, I really need some assistance. Here's the deal ...

Last night I was in a grocery store and there was a song playing on the speaker system somewhere near the bananas and already-hunked-up watermelon in plastic boxes. I had never heard the song before, nor since, which is not unusual since I don't listen to the radio much. Sadly, the tune is stuck in my head and I've googled until I'm blue in the face as well as the ass and I can tell you right now, a blue ass is nothing to joke about.

The problem I'm having is that I couldn't hear the lyrics or the hook or anything, but I'm hopeful that you guys can help me because the song was very unusual and I'm guessing was probably released in the last 5 years or so due to the production techniques used. Also, it must have been somewhat popular or it wouldn't be included in the market's muzak rotation. Here's what I gleaned from the banana area speaker system ...

1. The song is kind of a drone deal utilizing maybe 2 or 3 chords total.
2. The vocal is male, predominant, and the singer has a very high tenor range.
3. I think I heard some saxophone. Maybe playing in a chorus type deal.
4. As I mentioned, only a couple of chords are used and they stay on the same chord for the entire verse except for a chord change at the very end ... this is the unusual part.
5. I don't recall hearing any percussion, although there may have been some. If so, it was not dominant at all. It's a dramatic, semi-slow tune. Love songish.
6. The singer's accent could have been British, but it could also be one of those Americans who try to sound British because it's cool. The "R"s were pronounced "Ah"s.
7. I reckon that the version I heard was probably 4 or 5 minutes long.
8. The meter is slow. Dramatic.
9. From what I could ascertain, there might have been strings in the background.
10. As I mentioned, I couldn't hear the lyrics, but the verse/vocal went "da da da daaaaa ... dada dada dada da daaaaa" ... like that. Assuming the thing was in D Major, the primary melody was "G F# D E ..... DD EE DD G A". The main theme was that first part ... the "G F# D E". It sounded like the lyrics in the verses repeated themselves over and over again. The word, "heart" may have been used several times.

Again, the main thing that is unique is the fact that the high tenor vocal works over a single chord for a long, long time. Then, at the end of the verse there's a minor change for a 4 or 8 count or so then it returns back to the tonic or root chord once again. Very unique. Not normal.

I know this isn't much to go on, but if you could help a brother out, I sure would appreciate it. I once had Dean Martin's "That's Amore" (the moon pie song) stuck in my head for about a month and a half and I've never been the same after that. I don't think I could withstand another similar episode.

There's rep and casino cash (assuming I have any - I don't really know) in it for the angelic being who can help me out on this deal.

Many thanks in advance.

2. The vocal is male, predominant, and the singer has a very high tenor range.So, he was gay?
3. I think I heard some saxophone. Maybe playing in a chorus type deal.Could this have been from the air leaking out of the gay singer's ass?
4. As I mentioned, only a couple of chords are used and they stay on the same chord for the entire verse except for a chord change at the very end ... this is the unusual part.A tight rope walker with a twist?
5. I don't recall hearing any percussion, although there may have been some. If so, it was not dominant at all. It's a dramatic, semi-slow tune. Love songish.So, the Aborigines may have been restless but in a far, far away kind of way?
6. The singer's accent could have been British, but it could also be one of those Americans who try to sound British because it's cool. The "R"s were pronounced "Ah"s. Could the singer have been Australian?
7. I reckon that the version I heard was probably 4 or 5 minutes long.Was the selection of bananas so impressive that it took 4 to 5 minutes make your decision?
8. The meter is slow. Dramatic.This could be dramatic if the centimeter was much quicker.
9. From what I could ascertain, there might have been strings in the background.Were the strings used to hang the bananas out the reach of midgets?
10. As I mentioned, I couldn't hear the lyrics, but the verse/vocal went "da da da daaaaa ... dada dada dada da daaaaa" ... like that. Assuming the thing was in D Major, the primary melody was "G F# D E ..... DD EE DD G A". The main theme was that first part ... the "G F# D E". It sounded like the lyrics in the verses repeated themselves over and over again. The word, "heart" may have been used several times.We are talking music notes and not bra sizes, right?

:hmmm:

Were you in Whole Foods, Fax?
If you were in Whole Foods Im betting it was Right Said Fred.

If you weren't, then I'm guessing it was Bel Biv Davoe or the Sugarhill Gang.

blaise 09-20-2012 05:13 AM

Something from Coldplay, maybe.

JoeyChuckles 09-20-2012 05:14 AM

This could be fun.

I doubt the play Bon Iver in a grocery store.

I am guessing that or the Killers.

Gonzo 09-20-2012 05:15 AM

It was Night Ranger. Amirite?

JoeyChuckles 09-20-2012 05:26 AM

I doubt this would be played in a grocery, but this is my best guess.
