    Basically, have you ever heard a song in your past which you didn't know, and not being able to know, it was drove you insane with curiosity?

    Here's mine: ATC - Around the World



    God I love that song for some reason! Mostly for the music behind the lyrics (although they're cool too). Might sound cool in a Sonic game or somthing. And I just learned what it was called and who did it 5 minutes ago AFTER ALMOST 10 YEARS of wondering!!! I heard it in a skating rink once and it really caught my ears. I had no idea what it was. And over the years I heard it again and again in places like malls or restaurants. Well, I finally know! You have no idea what a annoyance that was, and finally I know! [​IMG]

    It's actually pretty easy for me to remember parts of the lyrics so I can search for them laters if I hear a song that I really like but don't know who it is from. But I once watched japanese TV and saw a really awesome PV, god I loved the song! But it took me ages to find out who sang it since I missed the moment the Band's name was shown... D: And I didn't memorise any of the lyrics at all... D: In the end I found out through some weird coincidences that it was ZZ - Step Forward. *__*

    Yeah, I couldn't understand the lyrics here, due to being in a crowded and noisy place, just the basic tune. I watched a Sonic history video on youtube a few minutes and the song just happened to be on the video. The credits had the song name and I finally found it! [​IMG]

    This is where midomi and songtapper come in handy.

    Oh snap! I heard about those years ago, but forgot about them. PCworld said they weren't any good at the time. Probably would have been able to recognize such a simple tune as mine though. I have a piss poor memory sometimes. I remember events and stuff like music tunes perfectly, but am dreadful at names.

    When Tenchi Muyo first aired on Toonami, around the 7th or so episode had this (but a much shortened version so that the lyrics went like "there is a hea-"):

    as opposed to the regular ending theme. It drove me crazy back then because it was only played once and I wanted to know the rest of the song.

    Yeah, but they don't always help... I tried midomi on a few songs I already knew and it didn't work. [​IMG]

    Holy shit! Icecap. I knew it sounded like SOME sort of music from a Sonic game. And then there was a tune from the unreleased Sonic Xtreme:



    That's called Space Queens. Kind of sounds familiar to Around the World. Maybe it's just the Europop trance-like style.

    A couple of songs I heard in a music video ages back, but didn't know the names of the songs. I eventually got bored one day and browsed through my hard drive and found the old music videos. I typed in the lyrics in google and it came up [​IMG]

    They were Strata - Piece by Piece and Hoobastank - Same Direction.

    Yup.

    Crazy Taxi PC version had this music, but I had no idea who the heck was the band. Only discovered it 4 years after or so.

    And there's another classical song which I enjoyed a lot and never knew the name... and I just remembered that I FORGOT AGAIN what it's called D:

    I heard this song at my friends house about 5 years ago and It was scratching at my brain the whole time, until a few months ago when I heard a rap song use it as a sample. The rap song credited the song in the video description, so I finally found it.

    Marvel VS Capcom 2 character select screen hurts my head whenever I hear it. And it gets stuck for quite a bit after hearing. "I'm gonna take you for a ride! Du nu nu na! I'm gonna take you for a ride! Du nu nu na!"
    Also, Street Fighter 3 character select gets stuck in my mind too. That little rap about character selection is way too catchy! [​IMG]

    This is an old, yet epic song. You know you loved it.
