Whenever someone makes a thread looking for something, whenever I reply, it's because I've used Google to find it - I have the musical knowledge of a frogspawn. So, I thought I'd share how I get it to work. If you're not getting any replies with your thread, or before you even make a thread, try this:

**How to Find a Song Name from a few Lyrics**
Say you heard a song, and you can remember the lyrics, "I get knocked down, but I get up again" and you want to know the name.

1. Go to Google.

2. Type lyrics followed by the snippet of lyrics you know. If you're unsure if it's but or when or if, it doesn't matter, just leave it out.

So, you'll have entered:
lyrics i get knocked down i get up again

3. Press search!

9 times out of 10, the song will jump out at'll get a preview of the rest of the lyrics which might jog your memory. If it's covered by more than one artist, a little research will find out who it is for you.

I find that with 'lyrics' at the start, you are far far far more likely to find the song. If you still have no luck, try with slight variations of what you can remember - Is it knocked down, or blocked down? If that still doesn't work, just remove the words you're unsure of altogether.

When you're using this method, it's key words like people or place names, unusual phrases or what you think are key parts to the song that will help you find what you're looking for.

Hope this helps.

Google really is helpful and so as Youtube and facebook in finding almost everything we want these days. And yes lyrics of your favorite music included =) But if after going through these search engines and other social media and still cannot find what you are looking for, forums like this will help =)

Okay, I've been looking for a song for months now. I have only heard it like twice, and that has been a long time ago. I'm pretty sure the song is from the 90s, and the chorus is something like "and I said baby" but the word baby is lengthened. It's NOT When I'm With You by Sheriff. It's not a rap song, it's a rock song. I had used the technique that was advised here many times, and with many variations on the chorus. I've tried "and I said baby" and I've tried "and he said baby" and I've tried "and she said baby." A friend of mine suggested that it might be "hey" or "angel," but in any way, the word is lengthened. I know that's not much to go on, but if anyone can help me, I would appreciate it.

I have tried all the tricks and still no luck?. Can anyone help? "There was a girl that I once knew in school. She went away from me. I guess I looked too hard to find what was always right in front of me. Standing in the pouring rain waiting for the sun to shine. I should have made my mind up then, back when decisions were easy. I get the world and all it holds, I'm told" Please help me find this song!!

hi everyone. i hope someone in here can help me find the title of this song and artist. i would really appreciate it. i've searched for the longest time and still can't find it. these are most of the lyrics but i still couldn't find it. thank you.

Days turn to weeks when you're so far from me, I tell myself you're so precious for me, I LOVE YOU, I love you, Time after time when I'm thinking of you, I've realized all the things that we'll do, I LOVE YOU, I love you, I've been waiting for your LOVE, I feel so lonely in this world, Day after day I still believe in us, You are the one, one that I'm dreaming of, I LOVE YOU, I Love You.
