Default Name This Song!

Ever seen a clip on you tube that you can't tie an artist or a title to?

Or maybe you've heard part of a song on the radio or in a commercial that's driving you mad because you can't identify it?

If so, then this thread is for you!

Just leave what details you do have about the song here and hopefully someone will be able to identify it for you.

Just read an article on LifeHacker, which can be useful for such purposes. It tells about a site AudioTag, where you can upload the file, or even give it the YouTube URL, and it will bring you matches for that song.

Full article here :

Right, and the other 52.8% are lies dreamed up by the competition

Ha-ha - yeah My trouble is I can never remember these things and I never remember to right them down. I've accumulated a lifetime of rubbish in my head which I guess is some use some time but the good one-liners just don't seem to stay there.

Default Martin to Ossie and bang

Can anyone help with an old football song that came out for the 70 world cup,

Back Home was the official song but there was another and all I remember is:

It mentioned a few of the England Squad passing to each other then came the words "Martin to Ossie and bang"

It was ----------to ----------/ ----------to----------then "Martin to Ossie and bang"

The last two being Martin Peters and Peter Osgood.

I would much appreciate any help with this, I have tried all the search engines and asked on a couple of football sites but no help yet.

Thanks in advance.

Smile Good safe website for song lyrics?

With reference to the article "Don't know the name of the song?" that linked to here.

Could someone recommend one or more of the better 'song lyrics' look-up websites? Googling comes up with so many choices that it is difficult to choose which may be 'safe', even though I do use WOT.

Many thanks in anticipation of a useful reply.

I keep a folder named LightBulb just for this reason. I try to make a point and go back and look at them a second time later. Editing is a good thing.
