    Music for identification.

    Hello everybody.

    I have one small problem... I have old American/English songs and instrumental on my magnetic bands but I don't know neither singer nor song. All music from 70's mainly. Some songs from 60's or early 80's.

    Anybody help me to recognize or identify this stuff? My English not so perfect as yours but I can't understand English lyrics through the noise from old magnetic bands.

    Also, I like a lot of songs that I have and I want to find quality sound of these songs.

    PS. My gratitude won't know the limit... to the reasonable degrees...

    This is different from your article, but if you want to IDENTIFY ME, I would go with the song "I GOT THE MUSIC IN ME" by Kiki Dee

    Re: Music for identification.

    How shall we do this, BiR ?
    1: Post mp3 clips? Do you have an Analog-In on your PC for the magnetic bands ( cassette or reel-to-reel tape, I'm assuming)
    2: Post phonetic approximations of the lyrics that can be discerned through the static and distortion?
    3: Chord progressions, or notation in JPEG?
    D: All Of The Above.

    This sounds like a fascinating, fun - and worthwhile -project, and I for one would be honoured to assist.

    I prefer the 40's and the 50's. But then I am ancient right.

    Yeah, I like many songs from 80's. I think you'll brush up in your memory a lot of lost songs and singers.
    Thanks for your readiness to help.

    Well, I'll formulate what I have and what I need in English. I hope you understand if I'll do it in Russian, you won't get my thoughts at all.

    I have an analog version on magnetic bands. I'll digitization each song and will save it on my computer. I'll try to find rational proportion between quality of sound and size. Next... I will save each file in mp3 format.

    That's what I have...

    ---------------------------------

    That's what I need...

    Any information about a song; a name, singer or band that it sing. Or maybe a part of lyrics, if you won't understand, who is who... In this case, I can find another information in Internet.

    Now I have 5 or 6 songs for identification. Also, I'd be very grateful if you'll tell me about format (mp3 or zip) and recomend to me the web-site where I can save these files in order to download.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can probably upload it on www.rapidshare.com
    "Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.

    Re: Music for identification.

    Well, let's go! It's a first part (4226 KB):

    http://rapidshare.com/files/13532082...rt_1_.zip.html

    3 mp3 files in 1 zip. I made this record in 70's. Seems to me, this is the very identical singer. I am very sorry, but sound is very bad. I hope you'll understand me because it was made 30 years ago.

    Re: Music for identification.

    2nd part is:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/13532433...rt_2_.zip.html

    Three different singers. The names of each files... all this is very relative.
    One of them only instrumental. If you'll have any questions I'm ready to answer.

    Files Cowboys.mp3 and Sex.mp3 I made in early of 80's.
    File PF.mp3 I made in the end of 70's but I assume that the song from the end of 60's or early of 70's. Who knows...

    Re: Music for identification.

    I found what F03.mp3 is!!! It's "The Osmonds" too. The songs:

    Movie Man

    Why did you do it,
    you should not make your mother cry.
    I'd say you blew it.
    Yes, he gave you one more try.
    Yet you laugh and you smile,
    try to run away.
    Don't you know what you do
    you might regret someday?
    'Cause theres one who has eyes
    on your evil ways.
    The movie man.
    Why did you do it,
    you're in for a big surprise.
    (Oh, I never knew it!)
    But honey, there's no tellin' lies.
    Youre in living color,
    it's your picture show.
    Even what your thinking
    everyone will know.
    That's the day you'll have to take the stand.
    The movie man.
    You're in living color,
    it's your picture show.
    Even what you're thinking
    everyone will know.
    That's the day you'll have to take the stand.
    The movie man.


    and

    Vignette: I'm Sorry

    Please don't let me see you cry.
    Let me say I'm sorry...
    so sorry...
    oh, yes I'm sorry...


    Seems to me, I have on my magnetic band the complete LP vinyl "The Plan", 1973, but in a terrible quality. By the way, in 70's I was buying this tape recording as "The Faces"... If it will be interesting, I can tell more about it...
