Okay, so I KNOW this song exists--I heard it on SiriusXM 40's On 4 last night...
I am looking for lyrics to the "Space Age" version of "Let's Get Away From It All" by Ray Anthony. It's something like "Let's spend the weekend on Saturn" and the like. All I'm finding are lyrics for the "original" version.
Any help finding this info. is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!

I remember seeing a documentary about some women who decided to "try on" witchcraft and did spellwork. One wanted her ex to return her phone, which he did the day after the woman did the spell. I think another wanted money and another wanted love (this one did some sort of bath thing). Sound familiar to anyone?

I'm looking for the title of an anime I watched long ago.

I saw it around 10 or 15 years ago. I got it when it was fansubbed, waaaay back when you'd send VCR tapes to people (that dates me, huh?) This was before big American anime companies were formed to translate anime.

When I got it, the rights to distribute in the US hadn't been done yet and I have no idea if they ever were. Nor do I know if it was based on a manga.

Genre: Magical girl / Shoujo

All I really remember was that the Magical girl MC received a special/magical notepad where she would draw costumes or whatever she needed and then transform into them. I do remember that it was different from most Magical girl animes at the time. And the color blue factored into it. I dunno if she had blue hair or her name was blue or something. It's just the other thing I remember well.

That's all. Any idea? =X

I KNOW I've seen it a few times, but I can't remember what series it was. A man on a violence and vandalism spree stops at a gas station and begins to wreck the cars. The owners run inside for protection, but one man gets angry enough to go out and confront the vandal, and either gets seriously injured or dies when the vandal attacks him instead. What show was this?

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. 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:

I saw a music video that was just a shot of a purple forest similar to this - mostly trees but there was a purple haze over the parts of the ground and sky that were visible. I only saw the last minutes of it but it didn't seem like anything else had happened prior, the shot was either locked off or a very slow zoom out from the centre.

I want to say the music was sort of tame impala esque, spacey, with soft vocals or no vocals. I wouldn't have thought it was earlier than 00s, but I can't say definitely.

for australians, I saw it a couple of weeks ago on the abc 3 edition of rage, which unfortunately doesn't post playlists like it does for the normal one.

does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Okay, this has been bugging me for a couple weeks and all of my attempts to figure it out have come up short.

It's a pop song that was played on the radio fairly frequently throughout 2013, but I can't place the exact part of the year when it came out. (Possibly around September? I can remember listening to it while driving to work at a job I didn't have until then.)

All I can remember was that it was a group of guys singing about partying on the weekend and having fun. At one point they rhyme "friends" and "again." The lyrics are mostly terrible half rhymes. The reason it's bugging me is that the T Mills song "All I Wanna Do" reminds me of it a lot. There is a chance that the band name was initials, but I'm not sure on that.

I've checked the top 40 charts from around then, but I don't think it ever made it that high on the charts, as far as I can tell. Unless it was just for one week and I missed it in my searches.

I know this is super vague, but I'm going crazy.

Song from a musical sung by a girl about going to college. At one point she mentions a boyfriend who smokes weed. It's not Avenue Q.
I'm looking for a Christmas song which I think was alternative. Came out around 2005-2010. One guy was the singer but I think he had a band playing different instruments. And they used see-through glass trucks like from "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" by Maroon 5. It was a music video about being alone on Christmas and being happy with that. In the music video they showed scenes of an ideal all American white family in sweaters with smiles on their faces. But it felt a little fake and forced. At the end of the song the singer was in a snow globe. Please help me if you can. Thanks.
