Aaaah, aah, aah ah; Eeeee, ee, ee, ee <-- WTF *is* this, on radio??

Now I’m interested in the mysterious Tibiacity whose post resurrected this zombie thread. This is that person’s ONLY post. So Tibiacity somehow finds this 8 year old thread (how?) and registers to post that they heard something similar on the radio the other day. Fascinating. Tibia, if you’re sticking around, what did you do, Google “aaaah eeeee” or something?

I’d come in to post that the thread title immediately made me think of ‘Zombie’ by the Cranberries!

Back in 2004, I wanted to know what it was because it was getting on my nerves. The funny thing is, I haven’t heard it since and now I’m finding it kind of catchy!

Probably because you heard it so often then, and also, now you can hear the entire song instead of just the part that was annoying you.

So I didn’t contribute at all to this, because I suck at music. But I have to say that I showed this thread to my husband tonight, and it was better than an episode of Sherlock. He was all “theres no way” and then BAM!

This place is so freaking awesome sometimes!

By happenstance, I had the radio on while reading this thread.

Based on the notes, I was humming the tune, and lo and behold, the same tune started playing on the radio. At least it was the first part of the song used a s the lead-in to a sports talk show. The announcer said the song was a club version of OTA.

I found a non-club version on You-Tube.

It seems that OTA refers to an Officers Training Academy of the Union Public Service Commission (India).

I kind of doubt that one would have made American top 40 radio in 2004.

It’s not OTA.

I realize you probably didn’t read the whole thread before posting, or you’d have seen that the song has been found, courtesy of Nzinga, Standing’s great ears and presumably deep library of dancehall songs she knows. But note that I said it was in a minor key. What you linked to is in a major key. It starts on the 3rd. It goes G, F, e-flat, while the chords are establishing it to be in the key of E flat major. it has passing chords in B flat major. I’d characterize the vocalizations as “oh”, not “aaah” and “eeee”.

Well I guess it’s no worse a guess than “I told the witch doctor”!
EDITED TO ADD: and again someone registers and posts to this thread as their only post?! Did this thread get linked to somewhere out there in the Great Beyond or something?

NM, missed page 2.

Could be :), we got a lot of traffic from a mention of the death pool thread from Leo Laport in the TWiG (This Week in Google) show.

I saw the title and thought of “Mine” by Taylor Swift.

Then I saw the posting date and realized Swift was 13 years old at the time this thread started.

Has the OP considered the possibility that he may be from the future?

Aha, this thread got put in “Threadspotting”!!!

OK, so how the heck did the TOK song get into the “related” songs on your link? I’m kind of scared.

People who watched his video watched the TOK song.

Ok this is the longest a request has taken.

Is it the the chorus of Dragostea din tei by the Moldovan band, O-Zone. It was covered by a couple of American bands/singers as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragostea_din_tei

Sung somwhat expertly by this kid from New Jersey USA.

Sometimes called “Numa Numa”. Here is the Wikipedia article about it.

If I am wrong at least the kid on YouTube is funny.

Szabrocki, no, that’s not it. But! Dancehall reggae being what it is, there is a dancehall reggae song on that riddim, too. Several. My favorite is from an artist called Busy Signal. Yes, that’s right. Busy Signal is his name.

I wonder if maybe the Mods should put a [SOLVED!] or something in the title.

The OP may be describing a violin and mistaking it for a voice. The song is probably a violin concerto.Why that would been played over and over on a pop radio channel is another mystery but people and radio stations were weird in 2004.
