    Ive got a song i can't get out of my head. It's mainly if not all instumental.It may have been by the group Japan but i may be clutching at straws there.I think it's from the eighties or possibly late 70's. Sorry to be vague. Hope someone on here can help

    have you a android smartphone available? Get a app called "soundhound", record into it humming the tune, and it searches for near matches, you can also use this app to sample a piece of music off the radio or anywhere else, and it names the artist and title. I believe apple have a similar app as well!

    That reminds me, does anyone know the name of the song the BBC use for arty things and stuff like that?

    It's been bugging me for ages :|

    I don't know if it's the one you are referring to but I've now got Ghosts by Japan stuck in my head

    I cannot get the link to work. Is it Sylvian and Sakamoto, Forbidden Colours? I love that song but I cannot find the instrumental.

    Ive just tried the link and it worked for me. It is forbidden colours. Ive also just tried typing it in with instumental at the end and was spoiled for choice.Enjoy.
