Nothing aggravates people more than a song on which they cannot place a name. This thread is for those songs which you know a few things about, but not the title.

To start, what is that song from Donnie Darko that goes "Hmmm... hmmm... hmmm..." in the I-vi-IV-V/Do-la-Fa-Sol progression in the verses?

REM - Mad World

Apparently depending on the version of the movie you've seen, you may get Tears For Fears - Mad World.

Your description seems like a calm song, and that's the only song that's not upbeat that I can remember.

I've got two that I had to hunt down for a few years, and hopefully I can get the jump on them for anyone else:
Gypsy Kings - Zorba the Greek
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucI11VG3log

Young-Holt Unlimited - Soulful Strut
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX1XSOzDPik


As for what I'm looking for:

What is this string sample from!?!??!
Best heard at 0:55

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO7bUhJlAek
There's a version of this out there somewhere, or a song very similar to this that has been driving me crazy for years. I can't even remember what it sounds like anymore, I just know it exists. It's not Mike Oldfield.

It may have had lyrics akin to a church hymn or Christmas song, but I don't think so. I remember someone thinking it was a Pirates of the Caribbean song, but it wasn't.

That's not it. It actually is an upbeat song, if that helps.

Well, I don't have much to go off of here, buut....there was a RBN song I heard a year or so ago that had a really awesome riff. It was descending chords, with about 5 or so chords each time the riff repeated. I doubt anyone will know exactly what this song is, but if you know of any RBN song that has a riff along these guidelines, please direct it toward this thread lol.

I don't know if it happens to other people too, but I actually don't get lyrics stuck in my head. Instead I get guitar riffs stuck in my head and I feell like that's so much worse because the riff IS the song.

A couple of weeks ago I had a swing riff stuck in my head and for the life of me I couldn't figure it out. It was Sultans of Swing, and yes, it's an amazing song, but that riff stuck in your head when you can't figure out what it's from is extremely annoying.

Just yesterday I had a solo stuck in my head and I couldn't figure out what song it was from. Then I played Hit Me With Your Best Shot in GHSH and that was it. Spooky coincidence.
