Subject: alt. rock song, circa 1996
Pardon me, if anyone could help on this-it would be excellent, as I have been trying to find a song for 7 years. When I was a kid in youth camp, disliking modern rock, I had a song I really liked, but never learned the name of, or lyric, anything. All I know is part of the tune, and no one has ever recognized it. I remember it came out the same year as TLC's 'Waterfalls',which was playing on the same tape as my song, I think. It had a dog barking in the beginning (I think) and the tune went like this:
da da da,
da da da
da da da, da da da
(repeat, then:)
da da da da da
da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

all set to a sad-sounded, grungy guitar. I know the information offered is absurd, but any clues to the song's identity would be great if I could finally find out what it is. Thanks

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.
