Can you help me locate a song?

It's from the mid to late 60s. It sounds like it's a bunch of young kids just singing/shotuing "Gold Diggers" (or something) over and over and it has a funky pre-70s beat.

Somebody once told me it was just recorded on the fly but that was twenty years ago.

I'm pulling for you, OP. I've been there. Post a link if you find it yourself.

If you have AmEx, you might be able to get a concierge to track it down for you. Just a thought.

Is it "Gold Digger" by Kanye West?

by Anonymousreply 412/18/2012

You give us TWO FUCKIN' WORDS to go on and then you add "or something?"

Then you have the fuckin' nerve to bump the thread?

TWO FUCKIN' WORDS that may or may not even be the lyrics?

Then some FUCKIN' moron says Kanye West who was born in the 70s, when the poster clearly states it was PRE FUCKIN' 70s

Yeah that it, good gues, Kanye West sung it ten years before he was even conceived.

Perhaps you are thinking of Dean Martin Presents the Gold Diggers?

Soul Finger by the Bar-Kays meets all the essential criteria, OP.

A huge part of the Stax/Volt Memphis thing of the 60's, they were Otis Redding's backup band. The original group was fabulous, and then they died. 8-(

Guys...can you help me locate a song too?

I'm afraid that you can't help me, but i'll try, i have nothing to lose.

This song i'm looking for is Italian and in its chorus line the singer who is male by the way sings 'Papara, papapapapara, papara...' That's the only thing i know about its lyrics...hehe.

by Anonymousreply 1012/18/2012

Oh, i forgot to tell you that it's breezy and has a dancing nostalgic quality in it and i think it's an 90's song...i don't take a vow though about the decade...

This is the only song that i like and i don't know the title and the artist and believe me i know more than a lot about lovely music and songs

by Anonymousreply 1212/18/2012

Oh, thank goodness OP/R9. Soul Finger! I like that remake with Chuck D. and the only surviving original member. The old single is also on YouTube, but I see it's blocked on my iPad aka mobile device.

I wish it was the Gold Diggers, they rocked. When I was a kid, you could always tell the children that would grow up gay or to be whores.

The boy children that liked the Gold Diggers would be pre-op transexuals while the girls that liked the Gold Diggers would grow up to be whores.

Hush up, angry people! More Bar-Kay's history, and a correction.

Ben Cauley, the trumpet player on the left in this vid was the sole survivor of the plane crash which killed 4 members of the Bar-Kays, Otis Redding and the group's manager. He stayed with the reformed Bar-Kays through 1971. He's still performing around Memphis.

James Alexander, the bassist on the right didn't take the doomed flight. He's still with the 2012 version of the group.

Love the performance...and the threads are sort of pre-Funkadelic. Very groovy!

Call ASCAP. Hum and few bars. They have a "Name That Tune" service.

r10, I may have found your song. It's the first track on this mix. Incidentally, now I've seen everthing.

by Anonymousreply 3812/19/2012

R38, lol it's not this. I have searched in Youtube about it and i also found this stupid song you sent me here. The song i'm looking for is beautiful, melodic and Italian. A love song with a soft melodic music 'Papara...papapapapara...'

That's all i know, it kills me. Anyway R38, i appreciate the fact that you tried for me...

by Anonymousreply 3912/19/2012

R38, that's a remix of Cidinho E Doca - Rap Das Armas

I'm not sure how R10 decided the singer was Italian, if that is the song.

Maybe someone else has done a cover of it.

by Anonymousreply 4012/19/2012

Looooooooooooool R40, God no. It's not this. I'm sure the song is Italian, 100% sure about it. It's not Spanish. You make me laugh. The song you sent me is really ugly.

i can't believe it! It is called 'Marcel' sung by Le Masque




by Anonymousreply 4412/19/2012

OK. Since everyone is getting their "Name That Tune" wishes, does anyone here know country music?

Sorry, but I really need to identify a song. I heard it on country radio around May 1, 1999, and cannot find out what song it is.

I am not a country music listener but was out of town that particular time and heard this song on the radio twice that week while in the car and no other stations available.

It is slowish tempo, sung by a guy and the lyrics are along the lines of I cannot believe how wrong I was and how I lost you, but if I have another chance I will prove to you how much I love you.

I know. Totally unique lyrics but the lyrics grabbed me because it mirrored what I was going through at the time.

Anyone? Thank you so very much for any help.

by Anonymousreply 4812/20/2012

R46 - I can understand you thinking so, but no, my post was quite true.

I really am looking for that country song. Since the theme was so very country cliché I added in the date that I heard it, hoping it would help a little.

You did make me laugh though, thank you.

by Anonymousreply 5012/20/2012

You were looking for THAT? Oh, Dear.

by Anonymousreply 5112/20/2012

Looking for the name.

It was a club hit house piece. Celebratory blaring horns is the theme followed by something like "The dj makes you move and anthrax? makes you groove" lyrics. It has motivated me to feel good and want to work out to it. It makes you want to dance. I believe it would fall under the category; progressive house.

by Anonymousreply 5203/15/2013

OK, I'll make this a little harder (or maybe not), I want to know about a song we sang in 1st or 2nd grade in school. It was probably some kids thing, certainly nothing from radio. All I remember is a line like "all my father really did was sit in bed and gravenhurst". Yeah I know that sounds really stupid, but that's how I remember the lyric. Maybe it said something else, but does it trigger anything familiar? Understand that my teacher may have been eccentric, probably so since I've never heard it anywhere since.

I'm looking for the name of a song I once heard on the radio about 10 years ago. It went something like "La da, dee da, da da. La da, dee da, dum da!"

You guys are good! I need to find this song, it's been bugging me for years. I heard it when I was young in the early 1970s. It was a slowish, sad song sang by a woman. I had something to do with a rodeo? Maybe rodeo clown? DL help!

by Anonymousreply 5703/15/2013

R57 are you thinking about a circus clown, perhaps?

Baby cried the day the circus came to town

'cause she didn't want parades just passin' by her

So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown

While she danced without a net upon the wire

"Don't Cry Out Loud" by Melissa Manchester

by Anonymousreply 5803/15/2013

No, R57, thanks, but it wasn't that hideous, bombastic clap-trap. This one was more mellow and it came out in the early 70s. The one I'm thinking of told a story, I think, of a guy-- a rodeo clown, maybe... but for sure something to do with a rodeo. I only heard it once.

by Anonymousreply 5903/15/2013

Well I'd suggest Bandy The Rodeo Clown, but that wasn't recorded by a woman, at lease not to my knowledge.
