Ask Tami: What’s That Song? “Something about moving the family”

fastballtheway Ask Tami: What’s That Song? “Something about moving the family”

Hi Tami!
I’m looking for a song title and artist…the song in question was played September 20, 2010 at 10:43 a.m. (according to my clock) right after the song “Low Rider.”  A male singer, something about moving the family and not knowing where they would go….?  something like that.
Hope you can help!
Thank you,  
~Lori  :)

A song about a man not knowing what to do? Perfect, that narrows it down to about 12 million different tunes…

Hi Lori-
That was FASTBALL “The Way”. Those kids are still lost, not ever knowing the way. Sad really.
Okay, enough.
Thanks for listening-

    On September 23, 2010 around 9:30pm a sound was playing that went something like “The guards are at your feet, the stars are on your head,” it has a great guitar solo, and I wanted to know the name of the song and artist.

    Thank you. :]

      Hi Adela-
      That was The CULT “Edie”. Did you see the Cult at Jack’s 5th Show? They were great.

    On Sept 24, 2010 around 1:00 pm a song came on with a male singer, kind of a slower song. Saying something about “breathing out while I breathe you in.” Dire Straight – Money for Nothin came on right afterwards.

      Hi Karen-
      That was FOO FIGHTERS “Everlong”, the acoustic version.

  • Dana

    9.28.10 @ 8:30p. Sounded like a big production techno band from the ’80s. Thanks.

  • Geoff

    I can’t remember how the song went or what song it followed, however, The Boys Are Back In Town by Thin Lizzy may have followed it – it was played around 2:35am on September 25

  • Jonathan

    On October 4 2010, around 6:45pm-7pm something about “take me out tonight” but it’s not that song you’re thinking by Eddie Money.

    Thank you :D

      could it have been the smiths “there is a light that never goes out”?

  • Scott

    I haven’t heard this song for a couple of months but if you can pull it out of ……… I’ll be grateful!!!!! Female singer kind of a chanting chorus yea or yes & mainly acoustic. Every time I ask someone about this song I get the What if God song as an answer – It’s not that song. Help me!!!!

  • Jules

    On October 8, around 11:30 am. It’s a long song, sounded like an oldie. The song began with laughter, it has piano playing, male singer.

    Hi Tami,
    Hope you can help me find this song…

    Will you follow me into history if I dance with you will you dance with me? Doo doo do de doo doo

    The lyrics probably aren’t correct. Please help it is in my head.


    • kalavinka

      Nicole, that sounds like Adam Ant “Strip”… instead of dance he sings of stripping… “we’re just following ancient history, if I strip for you would you strip for me”

  • Doug

    What song was playing today at 530pm??

  • Diana

    Hi Tami,

    Wish you the best,

  • Diana

    Hey tami!

    i emailed a few days ago and the songs you responded with didn’t fit with what i was looking for. It was Monday, October 11, around 1:25pm. I remember a lot of piano/keyboard in the song. It is a male… and then a woman comes in with a lot of soul towards the end of the song. I think a line says, “oh, I love you still…” then background singers say, “what you gonna do when… (don’t know the words)” Is any of this sounding familiar???

    Hi Tami,
    Last night (thurs) at 7pm-ish JackSeattle played a fun eighties song. Duet between a man and a woman. Man’s line “I’m a man” woman’s lines “I’m a slut, I’m a hooker, I’m a little girl” (not necessarily in that order). Who was the artist. One hit wonder?

    • kalavinka

      sounds like berlin “sex (i’m a)”

  • Justin

    Hi, I heard a song played October, 20 around 5:00 p.m. central.
    It was a lady singing that sounded like Paula Abdul, I’m not sure if the lyrics are correct but it sounded like she was singing ” no muscle man, is what i want, its sweetness that i’m looking for, we like to groove to the hip hop beat… that’s all i can remember thanks!!
