    Had this song in my head but I can't remember the name of it at all or who sings it... so I've been trying to google it with no success. Found a bunch of other songs, but not it...

    It goes something like "doo dooo do do dooo doooo doo....." for a while at the beginning, at a slow pace. It's sung by a woman, and I remember it was on the radio a lot in '96. The main song might have "and she was..." in it, but I'm not sure on that part.

    It's not "Tom's Diner", which comes up most often in google.... any suggestions?

    i think there are sites on the internet that let you "sing" or something like 5-10 seconds of a song and then it will give you suggestions.

    *looking*

    Taylor Swift is a teenager, lol, no way it was sung by her in 1996!

    When you say "doo doo dooo dooo doo dooo doo", I think of Otis Redding and Dock of the Bay...

    Can you give us any other hints?

    @Joe88 : Thanks, but it's a slower pace and more of an accoustic like feel.

    @Bortz: Have to try that sometime. My mic is at home right now, I'll have to grab it next weekend:)


    Edit: As for any other hints.... hmmmz. I really only remember the beginning part and that possible fragment in the rest of it. Which is what makes it so frustrating.

    ya i tried a few popular songs (iron man) and it got them right on. But some not so radio friendly songs gave me some trouble.

    why not record a bit of you singing what you know then upload it? virtually impossible to get song from various length 'do's
    good for a laugh whilst people try and help [​IMG]

    "...and instead I pour the milk"

    The Suzanne Vega version of Tom's Diner definitely would have been my first guess, but I guess it doesn't really match up to your "doo doo" pattern.

    lol. Doo doo pattern.

    One thing you could clarify for me: Is the singer actually saying "doo" or is that just your melody? Are you sure the song starts with the "doo" part?

    sorry to bring this old thread back...

    but could it possibly be "I don't wanna wait"

    i hate it when this this happens to me. if you ever hear the song again try and use a program called Tunatic to tell you what it is.
