Hi Gazingsoul, thanks for the suggestion, great song. Better off Alone was released in 2000. Song I’m looking for came out in the early to mid 90’s. Not to mention the memorable lyrics. Thanks.

P.s. if you like better off alone, try to find the bootleg “Better off Free” by Alice Deejay vs Rozalla.

mikusficus, great song, I think it’s already been posted here once before. Not the song. Again it’s an instrumental track. Fade into you is a vocal lyrical track.

Hello there,

 

I have read the whole thread and I take it the song hasn't been established yet?

 

ETA:-  Was it Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack?

Hi Abbafan1972,

No as of yet I’m still looking. I may have hijacked someone else’s original thread but I believed that we were looking for the same if not a similar song. I’ve tried to describe it as best as I can but I keep getting suggestions that are extremely vocal tracks and many Donna not originating in the 90’s decade. Many are one hit wonders which this may be but again it’s a very instrumental track as I remember it. Was played during the mid 90’s on a Dallas based radio station called the Edge which is no longer around. I’m trying to locate playlists from that era and try to sift through them but I still haven’t found it as of yet. Song is similar to “Sweet Harmony” by The Beloved but we a female singing the vocals “yes” or “yeah”. Most of the suggestions here are very different from that song. Thanks

I think the confusion is that you are not looking for the same song at all. The OP states that the song they are looking for has a soothing female voice with a piano and limited instrumentation. A lot of the suggestions are going off that and could very possibly be what they were looking for. What you are describing/looking for sounds more towards the new age sound. If it was on a 90’s list I recommend checking out Enya’s 90s songs and also the Celtic new age that was very popular at the time. Good luck in your search.

Hi there!

 

I can understand the slight frustration from hunting down an obscure track! 'Sweet Harmony' by The Beloved is one of my all-time favourites. So it's like a nineties electronic chill-wave song? Now these may have cropped up on this thread or you may have tried these ones out but I'll list a few artists that could be relevant:

 

Saint Etienne

Morcheeba

Opus III

Sunscreem

The Grid

Utah Saints

K-Klass

808 State

Deee-Lite

Stereo MC's 

Texas - Inner Smile (based on the "yeah, yeah, yeah" and the fact that it sounds similar to 'Sweet Harmony'. It was released in 2000 though: https://open.spotify.com/track/6i3kIF4sosXFhkoSLMV7bP?si=5cX4YcDaSge8TLc3EfMtdQ)

 

Generally, if I'm hunting down a song, I will go through as many songs of each artist until I hear something familiar so might take a bit of time. Hope one of the artists above were responsible for the song you heard.

 

Best,

 

A
