    Hi everybody.
    I was west coast dancing last weekend, and I heard a song that I really liked. But there are no vocals. It's all instrumental with a good beat. Also, a little fast for west coast swing. I think there is some guitar strumming going on.

    Is anyone capable of identifying this song for me? I know I haven't given many clues.

    Much thanks!

    Oh boy...I'm good at music trivia but need more clues than this...what style of music was the song? Rock? Blues? R&B? Did it sound similar to any artists you are familiar with? How old is the song? Is the guitar the main instrument? Is it electric guitar or acoustic? By "a little fast", maybe name another song with a similar tempo?

    Thank you for your effort Dancelf, but that is not the song.

    Let me try to describe it a little more. I think it's most like R&B. Has a good bass/back beat. The tempo might be more of a hustle speed. You can dance west coast to it, but it's a little rushed. When I was dancing to it, it seemed like most of the song was really chill and the guitar would just pop in every once in a while. Unfortunately, I did not focus really hard when I heard it because I was dancing.

    Thanks for welcoming me Terpsichorean Clod!

    R&B old style? Like from the 60's? Green Onions? :eyebrow:

    We could go on all night ;)

    Haha. I'm sure you could.

    Um. It's contemporary. Not from the '60's.

    Whee - twenty questions! Hmm, hard to decide how many we've used so far....

    #3) Where were you dancing?

    Hmm - how about Ike Turner's "Jazzy Fuzzy"? Probably too much guitar, but I figure there should be a guess with every question.

    Hi everybody. I thank you for all your help.

    I now have two new songs if anyone would like to help me out.

    The first one has lyrics that go: "I got money" and "I don't need him" and they kind of repeat.
    The second goes something like: "Put your loving there like baby"

    Can anyone tell me the title and artist of these songs?

    Thanks!!!

    I'm going to take a stab at the first one and say "I Don't Need It" by Jaime Foxx.

    Take a listen to Beggin' by Madcon at Amazon.com and see if that is what you were listening to.
