Subject: Help identifing a song
A friend of mine is like crazy looking for a song for a long time without success.

He remembers seeing a video probably at mtv, the video was black and white, and he saw a train approaching, and a face in the sky.

He doesn't quite remember when, but he thinks it was the late 80s.

The song is instrumental, probably country music.

Sounds similar to Night Train (Johnny Cash), Riders in the Sky (The shadow instrumental version), or Nashville Skyline Rag (Bob Dylan); but he says that they are not.

Thank you very much for your attention and help

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
