Ear Worm Help!

Recommended Posts

Can anybody help ID this tune? It's some 80's/90's joint that's been in my head for days. It's driving me bonkers!

 

The pentatonic run-up is a hard oscillator sync sound. The rest is kind of a pad with a chirp attack.

 

Thanks in advance.

I don't know it. But here in the Netherlands we have a radio DJ which has an item called "dr pop", helping people with this kind of questions. He is insane. People can jus hum a few notes of a very obscure song and he knows what it is.

 

When you don't find the answer, you could send it to him:)

quite a bit different but the hard sync part doing the upward run made me think of this:

Thanks - now I've got that worm stuck in my head too!

 

It's nibbling at the nether regions of my mind - Depeche Mode, Boy George, Yaz/Erasure, or Duran Duran maybe?

 

Anyway, I (think) I definitely recognize that riff, but can't put a finger (or name) on it.

 

Sorry

Buffalo Stance it is! J Dan FTW!

 

The part I had stuck in my head plays under the outro.

It seemed familiar when I heard your version. Later I listened again and was thinking Paula Abdul, maybe. But then I re-read your post - I don't know if you edited it or if I just missed it the first time, but your comment about the Hard Sync line is what made me think of this.

Yeah I added a textual description in the edit. Thought it might help you real pros ID the song. :)

Don't know about the "real pro" part, but it DID help.

Wow, J. Dan. Impressive recollection abilities there. I would have never figured that out.

 

One of my many useless skills, LOL.

Congrats on finding the answer.

 

I thought of posting this earlier but your guess playing didn't entirely point me to it. It has a similar synth 'run-up' but without the hard sync.

 

I've always liked this song

A better looking singer than you see in most rap songs. I remembered the video if not much about the song for that reason alone.

:like:

Funny, I listened to my clip and just realized the pentatonic run-up is from Mr. Mister "Is It Love" which I played in a band back in the day. My brain was mixing the two licks together. :P
