    It's been driving me crazy: I have these lyrics and thise kind of eerie tune/harmony going through my head that's from a song I heard at a haircutter's place the other day...

    "Oh we tried... but we didn't last long
    Yes we tried... but we didn't belong"

    or something

    Google has failed me. Can one of the magical EG forum populace please give me a help?

    It's not the French Eurovision entry, is it?

    Which is that?

    ed: oh wait, no, I found it. It's a little slower than that.

    I don't think that's it, as I just looked up the lyrics. Here it is anyway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0D0ZxjpbkM

    YES THAT IS IT
    OH THANK YOU

    now I can stop devoting my entire life to finding out what song it is and do other things.

    funny thing is, I have that song in my iTunes...

    cheers!

    I'd never heard it before, but it's quite good, in a weird ambient sort of way.

    Hehe, I'm now tempted to buy one of their albums, as it happens, after youtubing them.

    Does anyone listen to the radio quite a bit here? I was in town today and heard this nice song by a female singer that seems to be getting quite a bit of airtime judging by how often I heard it in all the various shops, it doesn't seem as if it's been released as I can't find it in the top 20 singles chart. Anyone willing to throw any suggestions I can look up?

    Could you be a bit more vague? I almost had a clue then, cubby. :)

    Duffy? Who is awful btw.

    And I desperately tried to remember the lyrics so I could put them into google but today had to be the day I forgot to put my trusty pen in my pocket. Sorry, it was kind of slow.

    Is it anything like this, I hear it all the time?

    Or there's this. I hate this sort of music.

    Sounds similar to the first one, vocal wise.I really can't be any more specific but I know that as soon as I hear it I'll recognise it. It's just become that elusive thing that gets further away the harder you chase it now.

    Does anyone know this one, it's been bugging me for ages. It's pretty well played, very catchy (heard it in a chain pub once), has a female vocal with a delicate voice, and all I can place lyrically is the line in the chorus that goes 'listen... ahaaaaaah listen...' If i could hum it for you I would but EG Forum rather unhelpfully doesn't have that facility.

    A good answer will save my life. A youtube link would be even better.

    Yes I think I know it, it's on the tip of my tongue.

    I was aiming them at Cubby. I haven't got a bloody clue what song you're on about ;)

    I secretly think that Cubby likes the Sandi Thom song but deem has now prevented him from admitting that its the correct answer.

    I see. Just the song I'm after is vaguely Amy McDonald-esque, I suppose.
