Music / Lyrics search- unidentifiable mp3 track - LINK ADDED

Post by shiftytigger » Wed Jun 27, 2012 9:13 am

Ok - a few years ago I bought a 2nd hand memory card for my phone and it was chock full of music. Most of it was standard dross but , being curious I did listen to all the stuff I didn't know or recognise the artist. Still most of it was rubbish but a couple of songs grew on me , despite being totally out of my normal taste.

Unfotunately my external HDD failed a while back , so my only copy of these songs were lost - or so I thought. I had put one on a mix cd I did for my mom , who likes a cd every now and then to listen to.

So I have this one song and thought I would find out who it is and maybe see about getting more by them. Again I was to hit a brick wall - the song is not recognised by Shazam and I cannot find it at all by many of the lyric searches I have tried. Originally the tracks were credited to someone called Dax McCallister - but having looked through all the google entries for that name - it's yet another full stop.

Basically I have an mp3 track that is unidentifiable by sound or lyric.

Has anyone here ever been stuck like this and do you have any suggestions for sites to try? Would it be worth uploading a copy of the song onto youtube for others to try and identify?

I will have a look at how to upload - never done it before. I hope nobody is expecting groundbreaking stuff. The track I have isn't the one i really liked but it may help.

The other track had lyrics along these lines - made me think of rpg games.

Lay down your defences , put down your shield
Im not here to harm you , im here to heal.

....................................put down your sword,
theres no one here to protect yourself from any more.

Its more country and western than i have ever liked - but we all like different stuff so hey ho.

Link now active - I am no video making expert (or music connoisseur as you may tell me!) - it was thrown together for the necessity.

Sounds a TINY bit like Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst. And I'm GUESSING that the song MIGHT be called "Wishful Thinking". Just been through 20-something songs called Wishful Thinking on YouTube and can't find it, mind.

Really nice song, whatever it is!

This whole situation narks me off as this is the one I didnt like so much - would like to post the one I liked just to see what you all think.

Tried searching lyrics , using shazam etc but nothing. Will have a search through the name you suggested , see where it gets me.

Thank you Mr Fred - do believe I may be on the right track here - just found another of the tracks i lost.

Seems to be a religious man - not that it bothers me - he has a talent.

Okay - I owe a debt of gratitude to mr fred here -

The track on youtube is called Before god and man (he only says it at the start)

The second one i found was dark haired darling -

the one I want has no youtube vid but is called quarantine - link to a snippet here if anyone is remotely interested here
