What Was That Song?

Posting Access:
All Members
Have you ever heard a song in a commercial, TV show, or movie, and gone absolutely insane trying to identify it? This commmunity is here to help. Post where you heard it, and hopefully someone out there will know what you're talking about.


1. ON-TOPIC POSTS ONLY. This should be obvious, but please, no promotions or unrelated posts. They will be deleted.

2. PLAY NICE. Self-explanatory, right?

3. SEARCH THE MEMORIES FIRST. If your question has already been answered, why waste your time asking it again? It's science!


GOOGLE IT! If you have some of the lyrics or even some vague idea of them, searching for it that way will probably end up being much more profitable than posting here. Try searching for a unique key phrase; put it in quote marks if you're absolutely sure you have it right.

For your non-song queries, please visit the fine folks at whatwasthatone.

A database of songs featured in commercials can be found at What's That Called?. If you remember what the commercial was for, try searching for it on YouTube and check the comments to see if anyone's identified the song.
