name that tune

*Since there appear to be posting limitations in the Games/Trivia subforum of the Chit-Chat forum, I am re-directing discussion to here from this post so I can respond to posts in a timely manner (instead of waiting 24 hours).

OK there are only 2 rules:

  1. You can search the internet and you can ask for help from colleagues, friends, neighbors, family, etc but if you get the right answer you must give credit where credit is due.

  2. If you want to post your own, please start a different thread.

Here’s](https://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=22187&d=1492044574) the first challenge.

(Karibou)…this has now been driving me nuts for the past 24 hours. Feels like one of those tip-of-my-tongue kinda things…

(Cothron Theiss) I ran the .mp3 through a music recognition database, and no results popped up. Hopefully later, I’ll run it through a recognition software with a larger database and see what happens.

(frcguy) Sounds super familiar, I just can’t place it.

I’ll give another hint:

That tune is the lead-in to the title song on the platinum debut album of one of the top Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bands of the 70s.

So it’s not some obscure no-way-anyone-could-possibly-guess challenge.

(Poseidon5817) Dana Espanola No 5. We actually listened to this song in AP Music Theory! :smiley:

I can only assume this was tongue-in-cheek.

I agree… sounds very familiar but I can’t place it.

It’s gonna be a face-palm when I find out what it is.

(going to continue to try)

Hey, it sure does sound like a Spanish dance!

Space Intro- Steve Miller Band

You must be a joker. Just like Steve :slight_smile:

Or maybe a midnight toker?

What you posted was rattling around in my head and your hint gave it a landing place. I stole that album from my big brother and played it a brazilian times.

BTW “Fly Like an Eagle” was their ninth album and the eighth “The Joker” went platinum.

Fly Like an Eagle went quadruple platinum. But as you said, it was their ninth album (not debut, like the hint said).

The name-that-tune clip is a single acoustic guitar and organ. Space Intro has lead and rhythm electric guitars, drums, and harmonica. Not to mention that the chords and tempo are completely different. Thus the joker/toker remark :slight_smile:

GOT IT.

Dreamboat Annie - Heart

Resources used: Ether’s hints, RIAA’s database of platinum albums, Wikipedia’s list of Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductees.

Going through those lists reminded me of a lot of great bands that I haven’t listened to in ages. Thanks!

Reps](https://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=22193&stc=1&d=1492204782) to you! Nice work.





*OK, time for the 2nd challenge. This one’s for you old timers.

Yeah, I thought maybe you’d be all over that one in a flash.

Reps to you for the quick reply :slight_smile:

*This one I think is a bit tougher.

Might leave this for others but it takes a sad song.

Shazam scoreboard so far:

  1. Fail, no matter how many times I tried
  2. Success
  3. Success
  4. Success
  5. Fail

Google’s song recognition picked this one up for me. Look Into the Sun by Jethro Tull.

Jethro Tull - Look into the Sun

Thought I recognised the tune, but I would never have been able to remember who it was without Sam’s hint. I also might have placed it if you’d mentioned that the band’s frontman was known for being an iconic flautist.

Amazing. That technology has certainly come a long way.

Reps to you.

I’m going to have to make the snippets shorter, or perhaps pick some lesser-known artists.

*4 How about this one?
