Ultimate Frustration
hello people. I am extremely angry! I just turned on the radio to a station that plays hit songs from the 90's. The thing is just when i turned it on i heard the ending of a song i've been trying to figure out the name of for about 2 years. The freaking radio dj didnt say the title of the song or the artist after the song was done so i need a bit of help. I have little details but they are not tooooo relevant. All I know is a woman sings it, its like a pop song something kind of jazzy , the pace of the song is not to fast yet not as slow as a ballad and the only lyrics i can remember (which appear alot in the song or the chorus) are a rythmical doot doot dooo doot doot doo doo doot sang by the woman. the song is from the 90's, not to early in the 90's but not too late either. Please try to help me out people. Thanks Alot. I Think if you guys figure this one out i'll get a heart attack out of emotion!

sorry - doesn't ring a bell.

Did you try calling the radio station? If you don't know the number, you can find it in your local yellow pages or see if they have a website.

Good luck!

Call the radio station. Ask to speak to the DJ or program manager. Tell them the day and the time you heard the song. If you're not sure what time it was, ask for all songs played inbetween the hours you're sure that it aired. Radio stations must keep a log of every song played so royalties are sent to the artists. The log includes the date and time.

thanks I'll try that but there is one other detail i forgot to mention. Maybe this one could help a bit more. I think I heard it in a car commercial once. Keep on trying fellow music fans i would appreciate it SOOOOOOOO much. I'll try the radio station but it would be awsome if i could find it here.


Also i checked in another topic and someone else had a similar request.. not completely sure

Maybe "Tom's Diner" by DNA featuring Suzanne Vega (the original artist and writer)?

It's not really jazzy, but everything else fits the desc.

I am no lawyer, but surely if they altered the song without her permission, and used her vocal - and even gave her all the appropriate credits and royalties - isn't that theft?

They can't do that and get away with it? Or can they?

Do you know if there was any legal action from Vega over the 'song'.

Redhenny,

Excerpt from long article...

"Just as with every other subcultural movement that has threatened the status quo, the music industry's best response may be to let the genre flourish online and on the margins. So far no one is really making any money from bootlegs, -- if anything, bootlegs stimulate demand for the original songs. Rather than threaten bootleggers with legal action, a sounder strategy would be to co-opt the scene by skimming the best ones off the top and re-releasing them as "official" bootlegs. This has already produced one No. 1 hit, with Richard X's mash-up of new waver Gary Numan and soul singer Adina Howard. The track follows in the footsteps of DNA's bootleg dance remix of Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner," which Vega ended up authorizing and re-releasing to much chart success in 1990"
