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.

I went back to the market and the audio they play in the store is sent via a satellite feed from their home office. I got the name of the person there (not sure if it's the right person, though) whom the manager said would know how to get a song list. I have phoned three times, left voice mail, and receive no return call, email, or anything. He may think I'm a kook or something. However, I did tell the manager that I would never spend another dime in his stupid, freaking store until I got the answer. He seemed confused about that.

Anyway, I haven't listened to any of the stuff you guys have come up with from this post forward. I've been kinda busy. I'll catch up on the thread later tonight or tomorrow morning. Hopefully, one of you guys have found it.

I'll keep trying to contact the parent company, though. I shall not rest until this mystery is solved.

Meanwhile, thanks for all your help. Again, sorry my clues were so vague.

So did you like the song or was it only worth remarking on for its unusual qualities?

Or in other words, was it a catchy tune? This has probably already been covered but I don't get out much these days.

It was a soprano vocal and autoharp version of "Born In The USA".

Over.
1. The song is kind of a drone deal utilizing maybe 2 or 3 chords total. -check
2. The vocal is male, predominant, and the singer has a very high tenor range. -check
3. I think I heard some saxophone. Maybe playing in a chorus type deal. - sexophone
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. DEFINITELY THIS
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.- no drums, keyboard only, its a love song.
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. check
7. I reckon that the version I heard was probably 4 or 5 minutes long.- just felt that way
8. The meter is slow. Dramatic.
Very unique. Not normal.

This is my best guess Fax. I have thought about it for a while. it's the only newer song that somewhat fits the description.

Just keying in on the description of the singer, I'm wondering if it might be The Decemberists?



May have already been suggested.

Negative, Red Rider.

I'm sorry I haven't kept up with this thread, guys. I think maybe I subconsciously blocked the whole thing out of my mind after I got the bad news.

I contacted the parent company and they said there was no way they could provide me with any information regarding their song list. They said it was computer driven and totally random and the entire list would be too difficult to output ... or words to that effect. (They send the muzak via a satellite dish to the individual stores.)

So, there is no way I can suss out the song title from an existing list and I can only go by memory at this point. Tomorrow (or the next day) I'll catch up with all the submissions I have yet to hear and respond to ... meanwhile, I'll be soaking my head in a bucket of ice water.

Thanks again for all your help ... and my continued, heartfelt apologies for the crummy clues. Someday, I hope, I'll hear the song again. I've only heard it that one time and another listen sure would help.
