Help, fellow Pit dwellers.
I'm going insane trying to identify a song i listened to on the radio last week. I just identified a second one i was looking for ("Feel So Close", by Calvin Harris), but this one is eluding me completely.


Here's the [little] info i have:
  • it's a recent song;
  • the genre is pop;
  • it has vocals sung by a girl (with a pretty voice, IMHO);
  • the lyrics have "babe" or "baby" in them, something to do with looking for love, IIRC.



Hopefully someone in here is knowledgeable about pop charts and can help me find it.
Thank you!

Is it like Girls Aloud pop or more electronic/dance kind?

EDIT: Is it this?

Nope, the voice sounds natural (no auto-tune).

And i think it's mellower than Girls Aloud and electronic/dance.

Do you have any idea how many pop love songs have the word 'baby' and are sung by women?

It's not much to go on I'm afraid

Indeed. That criteria is so wide-ranging it's what they cover Texas in.

Edit: Does anyone really like the start of the Selena Gomez song? That sounds awesome. What type of music is that?

Bud, you just described every song in the current top 40.
Q: Favourite Pink Floyd song?
A: The one where they get wicked high and play Emin and A for an hour.

It's almost Bhangra-ish

Well, Bhangra is exactly like that but it's dance music - that's way more chilled.

Yeah, i know. I was just hoping someone would have an idea, since it's a recent song and some people follow the charts closely.

I guess i'll have to keep the radio on at all times until it comes up again.

No, it's not really a dance/electro song. It's mellower.

The beat isn't so heavy, it probably is slower as well.

Nope. Despite the fact that i have it "under my tongue", i can't recall any melody of the song to reproduce it. It's frustrating as hell.

Nevermind, just found it.
I don't think you'd ever find it; it's by a portuguese, 15-year-old girl. Damn, this $#!t is catchy. And her voice is nice.

Thank you all very much for your help!

Taylor Swift?
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

Sorry about that...

Hey, you might find a song that you especially like among the others. That way it wouldn't be a complete waste

Here's a good song. https://soundcloud.com/martinclancy/01-flat-foot-original-extended

I'm actually sick of it now because they play it at work all the time but i liked it for 2 weeks.

It's cool. Has a nice 90's vibe about it.

Okeys. I don't listen to mainstream radio let alone Portuguese, so I wouldn't know.
