This is seriously the most vague post ever. I apologize.
I heard this song on the radio in a store today, and immediately recognized it as one I'd heard as a kid, in some live-action kids movie. This would have been in the mid/late 90s. I had thought maybe the Babysitters Club movie, but it wasn't on the IMDB soundtrack listing.
Okay...so this song is sung by a woman/women. It kind of has a Jamaican/chanting/other type feel to it. Yeah...that's vague. GRRR.
So there's one main singer who sings whatever lines, and then she and the back-up singers repeatedly follow it with some non-English that sounds like "Ike a high-away" and/or "hum da hey da hey". Five syllables, ending in the "ay" sound. I feel like the lines in between are around eight syllables, always followed by this repetitious five syllable "ay" line.
The entire thing is upbeat and fairly repetitive.
Seriously...anything remotely like what I'm attempting to describe?
Here is my incredibly sad (and low-quality) attempt at trying to mimic the rhythm: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0F1EQYOTfdq
