Help me with this - I'm looking for a very famous song with a great intro.
It sounds a bit like Bittersweet Symphony but it could be any of the indie rock bands of the 90s/00s (maybe Oasis, Radiohead, Muse, Coldplay, Dandy Warhols etc)
tudu tutudu tu tu tu tudu tutudu (sing it slow, not fast).
The first song that immediately hits me is this one
Then again, there's always this one
Nope. It doesn't really have a word like symphony or sympathy in it, but the sound is as recognizable as Bittersweet Symphony.
Oh what can it be? I've heard the song a thousands times before but I keep forgetting what it is and who sings it.
Now you're doing my head in with this. I do recall something about the Verve song but can't think of what. Can you remember if its male or female vocals?
This is going round in my head, but it's before The Verve and it's not an indie band
It's a male singer, don't know if it's solo or a band.
I think it has the lyrics "when I call your name" in the verse.
The super-catchy intro continues throughout the whole song, or many parts anyway, but after the intro it definitely gets more rockier. It's not a fluffy pop song.
Its not this?? I was so sure I'd got it!
Sorry, somehow I missed that post. Nice song btw, but it's not the one I'm looking for.
It has such an outrageously catchy intro I'm sure you all know it. Oh well, I'll find it...eventually
