Bah-ba-ba-ba-bah-da-da-da-bah, bah-ba-ba-da-da-ba-ba-ba-bah!

When I look back on my life, I realize that I’ve done some great things.  I sang Cole Porter songs from the top of the Eiffel Tower.  I wrote 50 poems in one night.  I allowed complete strangers to determine the style of my facial hair.  It’s been an enjoyable life so far, but I haven’t done the one thing I’ve wanted to do more than anything.  Reproduce?  Contribute to society?  Win the respect and admiration of my peers?  Nah, I don’t care for that stuff.  What I want to do is this…

I want to compile a list of all the pop songs that feature “ba-ba-ba” in the lyrics, edit them for quality, and then compile the best ones into a collection called The Ba-Ba Box Set.  I think it’s why I’m alive.  I’ve thought about doing The Ba-Ba Box Set for years, but I’ve never taken the time.  I once had a playlist in iTunes consisting of a few ba-ba songs, but I lost it when my computer died last year.  Well, it’s time to rebuild my list.  It’s time to fulfill my destiny.

I’m basically starting from scratch here and would greatly appreciate any suggestions.  Do you know any ba-ba songs?  If so, please leave a comment or send me a message with artist and title information.  I promise to thank you in the extensive hand-written liner notes that will accompany the box set.

By the way, I’m particularly interested in finding a mysterious ba-ba song that I heard last year over the sound system at the Southgate House.  It featured the line “all the ghosts”.  The singer had a Tweedy-esque quality to his voice.  I’ll send a crisp $10 bill to anyone who can give me an accurate artist name or song title.

[UPDATE: Homebody figured out the mystery song mentioned above.  It was "I'm Pretty Sure" by Drew Danburry.  Here's an alphabetized list of what we've gathered so far.  The song sources are in parentheses.  Songs marked with an (*) make up The Ba-Ba Box Set, Vol. 1.  Songs with a (**) designation are on Volume 2.  Songs with (***) are on Volume 3.  Songs marked (****) made it onto the final compilation, Volume 4.]

      I left a comment with a proper link (not all spelled out like that) yesterday, but I don’t remember how I did it. It doesn’t seem to be an easy option right here.

      Thanks a lot for following the list over to WordPress. Your contributions have always been appreciated and I hope we can keep it going at least until we hit the 1,000 mark. At the rate we’re going, we might be able to get it by 2011…which sounds like a decade in the future, but it’s really only a few months!

    The Bicycles – Sweet Petite

    It’s a strange one. There’s about a minute of guitar heavy intro and then it turns into a pretty nice ba-ba song and then there’s doo-doos at the end. heh

    I uploaded it to Vox. Do you have a plan on verifying the more obscure songs once Vox shuts down?

    • M-----l says:

      Do you have a plan on verifying the more obscure songs once Vox shuts down?

      I will probably end up using my eMusic account to acquire the ba-ba recommendations I don’t already own. Provided the samples sound like something I’d enjoy, of course.

      It’s been a good day for ba-ba songs. I found three this morning and you just added another one.

    Two ba-ba songs on the new Jenny & Johnny album: Scissor Runner and While Men Are Dreaming.

    • M-----l says:

      Thanks. How is that album? I bought a Johnathan Rice CD about five years ago and I only made it through one listen before I sold the thing. And I still don’t know what to make of Jenny Lewis. I like a couple of her songs, but what I’ve heard makes me think she’s a Neko Case knock-off. That’s not really a bad thing to be, I guess.

      • hotrod says:

        I don’t really know anything about Johnathan Rice except that he spells his name incorrectly. And I probably wouldn’t have bought this album on my own. A friend burned me a copy. But I like it. It’s not groundbreaking or anything, but it’s pleasant. I think it’s more comparable to She & Him than Neko.

        That reminds me – I have a picture at my house of Jenny Lewis and Zooey Deschenal that Emma gave me. I should post that once I get around to blogging again.

    • crankypants says:

      “Jenny & Johnny” is the worst name since She & Him. and then there’s that show with Joey Lawrence and Clarissa Explains it all, I guess it’s Melissa & Joey? Oh it’s gaggariffic. someone make it stop, I’m crampy and cranky. cramky and cranpy.

  5. crankypants says:

    Ely Guerra–Vete

    it came up on Last.fm

    here’s the video

  6. crankypants says:

    I probably had a couple more that came up on last.fm but this whole Vox thing has really dampened my spirits. I’m going to blame Vox for everything, including the cramps that I’m starting to have.

  7. crankypants says:

    I copied the URL from the address bar thinking it would come up as a link, or a dead link, not the actual video. The first one came up as ‘embedding disabled, click to watch on YT’ and the second one played for me. I really didn’t expect the video to embed into the comment. I don’t know what else to do, it was a URL, not the embed code. very strange.
    I think I may have encountered a couple doo-doo songs which I didn’t write down. I’m getting some obscure stuff on my last.fm player, I guess because I’m putting in some kind of obscure bands. (for American audiences anyway)

  8. crankypants says:

    Serge Gainsbourg – Lemon Incest

    It came up on my last.fm covered by Mick Harvey, both have ba-bas.

  9. silverchimes says:

    I’ve been listening to The Apples in Stereo this morning.

    Radiation from New Magnetic Wonder is a ba-ba song and isn’t on the list yet.

  10. crankypants says:

    I can’t believe you are already so close to 1000.

    • M-----l says:

      I can’t believe you are already so close to 1000.

      Not “you”, “we”. I couldn’t have wasted all this time without your help…and the help of Homey and S. Chimes and everybody else who submitted one song and then quit. This is a group effort here.

  11. crankypants says:

    heh–i almost said “we” too.

    also, I meant to mention to you before that Darren Hanlon has played with the Lucksmiths in the past. Maybe not as a full fledged member but he’s good friends with them. If that gives you any more incentive to go see him.

  12. silverchimes says:

    Simple Minds – Alive and Kicking

    Yesterday afternoon I went to Carrefour (like the French version of Target) with one of the lab techs to buy a refrigerator for the mass spec lab. We were headed towards the appliances and I heard ba-bas. I stopped and turned around to see where they were coming from and ran over to this little kiosk selling videos. They had a small TV playing a video of 1910 Fruitgum Company. The lab tech thought I was a little crazy.

    So here you go Simon Says by 1910 Fruitgum Company

  13. crankypants says:

    On an unrelated note, I never knew that Charles Manson was born in Cincinnati.

  14. silverchimes says:

    OK, I’m going to try this again. I tried posting a comment twice before but it didn’t show up. I think it was because I was going through a VPN.

    Bunnygrunt – 1000% not Creepy.

    You can find it on eMusic (and other places)!

    • M-----l says:

      I don’t know what a VPN is, but I just noticed that two comments similar to the one above were stopped by WP as spam.

      • silverchimes says:

        It’s good to know the comments didn’t just disappear.

        VPN=Virtual Private Network. I started using it because Amazon (or some music industry lawyer) decided that they couldn’t sell me mp3s because I don’t live in the right place. eMusic did the same thing awhile back, but then changed their minds. If I use the VPN, I can make it look like I’m in the US and shouldn’t have any problems, unless I try to post a comment on WP!

  15. silverchimes says:

    The Foxymorons – Out of Control

    It was a KEXP song-of-day back in August and can be found here.

  16. crankypants says:

    Ben Kweller–Family Tree.

  17. silverchimes says:

    The Reivers – Ragamuffin Man.

    I’m pretty sure they’re ba-bas. Sometimes it’s difficult to tell.

    • M-----l says:

      Interesting. I’ve listened to that one four times since I got Saturday and I didn’t hear any ba-bahs. I have added it to the list and will double-check it when I’m finished listening to the Dentists.

      I sometimes wonder how many ba-ba songs just slip by my ear unheard. I caught one on my 9th listen a couple weeks ago. (I listen to all my new CDs ten times, in case you have no idea what I’m talking about.)

  18. silverchimes says:

    Tahiti 80 – Don’t Misunderstand

  19. hotrod says:

    Madonna – Crazy For You

  20. crankypants says:

    Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros–Janglin

    (pretty sure it’s ba-bas and ba-das….)

  21. crankypants says:

    ooohhhh Duran Duran–Planet Earth

    • M-----l says:

      I’ve gotten away from thanking people when they send me ba-ba songs. It’s not because I don’t appreciate them anymore, but thanking doubles the comments and this post is unwieldy enough as it is.

      But thanks to everybody who’s been sending in the songs. Homey, Cranky, S. Chimes, and even Hotrod have suggested songs in the last week alone. “Crazy For You”? Who would’ve guessed.

  22. silverchimes says:

    The House of Love – Crush Me

  23. crankypants says:

    Red Riders–C’mon
    Thee Oh Sees–Rainbow

  24. crankypants says:

    Clare Bowditch–Running

    not sure if those are ba-bas in the back

  25. crankypants says:

    Oh I am glad you put it back to only alphabetical order. Makes it a little easier to check for dupes.

  26. silverchimes says:

    Pipas – You Kill Me

    This is supposed to be a Harper Lee cover, but I haven’t found the original version yet.

  27. silverchimes says:

    I really hate to reduce your ba-ba song count by 1, but you have a duplicate Sneetches song: I Need Someone.

  28. silverchimes says:

    The Pines – Darling, Don’t You Think?

    This a Fairways cover, but the original is a doo-doo song.

  29. crankypants says:

    Ingrid Michaelson–Parachute

    if you click on “Jukebox” it’s the first song on there. you don’t even have to listen to more than 2 seconds of it.

  30. crankypants says:

    Oh! 899! so close! 101 more, that should be a snap till the end of the year. Right? I’ll just have to make myself listen to more twee pop shit on last.fm.

    • M-----l says:

      We’d have 901 except Silverchimes and I each found a double. I just picked up a gigantic stash of tunes, so I should be able to find some in there. I’ve also got a large collection of “twee pop shit” on mp3 that I haven’t listened to yet.

  31. silverchimes says:

    Tommy James and The Shondells – Crimson and Clover

    (the Joan Jett version has them, too)

  32. silverchimes says:

    Wow! I’m surprised that you counted both versions of Crimson and Clover.

    Robyn Hitchcock – Everybody Needs Love

    • M-----l says:

      I don’t want to encourage people to go through the list of songs and look for a bunch of cover versions to up the number, but it’s fine with me if you happen to find two versions of the same song.

      (That makes perfect sense to me.)

  33. crankypants says:

    Jim White–Burn the River Dry

  34. crankypants says:

    Butcher Boy–Carve A Pattern

    (I think those are ba-bas, I have too much background noise)

  35. crankypants says:

    Liechtenstein–Sophistication

    I am not 100% sure if those are ba-bas I hear, I don’t have headphones.

  36. silverchimes says:

    Pipas – Wells Street

    You can see the live version on YouTube – here

    • crankypants says:

      omg I was just going to put up a Pipas song too…. but I don’t think it will count based on the title, if you just listen it sounds like ba-bas but it’s called Barbapapa.

      also I keep soming across this stuff on last.fm that is already up here, like Talulah Gosh. grrrr, I should know better when I hear this type of music!

      • M-----l says:

        If you had somehow given me that song without its title, I would’ve definitely accepted it. Knowing the true nature of those repetitive syllables, I’m afraid that I won’t be able to.

        Hey, maybe there are official ba-bahs in the rest of the song. We only got to hear 30 seconds. (Who puts a 30 second song sample up on the internet anyway? What is this, 1999?)

        • crankypants says:

          I think I saw Yahoo music had a link to it too (probably the whole thing and there may have been a YT video too), but the rest of the song is like the sample so I just left it. If you want to hear the rest you can google it. If I hadn’t given you the title, sure, it would have been a ba-ba song but it would have been a ba-ba song without a title. oh well.

      • silverchimes says:

        Pipas has a least two or three more ba-ba songs (based on the 30 second snippets on eMusic). However, I worked until 8pm both Saturday and Sunday so I haven’t had a lot of time for searching out the entire songs.

        I like Pipas fairly well, so I might get one of their albums when my subscription renews.

  37. silverchimes says:

    Pipas – Barbapapa

    I’m not usually a fan of talking in a song (songs are for singing, you know), but this one is not that bad.

  38. crankypants says:

    Haha! You know, I heard a few doo-doo songs over the weekend (over the last week, really) but the whole thing feels false. Hotrod doesn’t keep up with it, and I have found more than he has. Ba-ba forever!

  39. silverchimes says:

    Maia Hirasawa – Gothenburg

  40. crankypants says:

    my count is up to 87.

  41. crankypants says:

    I thought I heard ba-bas on the Fairways’ Postcard Picture Perfect. I see you have others from them, do you have a copy of that song? I can’t seem to find it on the interwebs.

    • M-----l says:

      That song is on Is Everything All Right?, one of my best finds of the year. I listened to the whole thing ten times (per company policy), but I didn’t hear any ba-bahs on that song. I found four others on that CD, though. Maybe I confused my titles. I’ll listen again.

  42. crankypants says:

    Free Loan Investments–If You Leave (OMD cover)

    scroll about halfway down. I had a tough time finding it!

  43. crankypants says:

    from the same (pretty cool, it seems) site, Wonder for all–Holiday

  44. crankypants says:

    Parallelograms–Hurt Like a Heart Attack

    i like that one! (I have another one but am trying to find it)

  45. crankypants says:

    Teardrop Explodes–Passionate Friend

    the first one I found was by Fat Tulips but damned if I could find it on the internet, it’s from a 1991 EP.

  46. crankypants says:

    the other one I can’t find is the Pooh Sticks’ Indiepop Ain’t Noise Pollution. it’s on an album called Orgasm.

  47. crankypants says:

    that is potentially 6 right there. Maybe I WILL get us to 1,000 singlehandedly (from here on out) of course I got very little work done in the last hour or 2….

    • M-----l says:

      That’s a lot for one day–and I thank you–but I can’t help but wonder if you’ve found a way to cheat at this. You didn’t discover another list out there or something, did you?

      (I decided against the Fairways song from yesterday.)

      • crankypants says:

        yeah, like I said, I wasn’t sure if I heard ba-bas or not. my speakers and my ears aren’t that good.

        and no, I am not cheating! it’s all that twee pop shit that keeps coming up in my recommendations on last.fm, I guess some days you’re hot and some days you’re not. Today just happened to be a ba-bariffic day, and there were even a few that came up that were already on the list.

  48. crankypants says:

    Cars Can Be Blue–D in the P

    scroll down to the bottom, it’s a really short song. (and dirty!)

  49. crankypants says:

    Okay, if 3 or 4 comments come up here with The Deirdres Claire Are We Safe To Be On Our Own? then delete all but the second. I think the link is borking it or else it’s WP.

  50. crankypants says:

    okay my comments mentioning or linking to hype machine are not coming up. google the song and you’ll see it on hypem

    and I have another one–the Would Be Goods–Amaretto

  51. crankypants says:

    oh sorry! i have to get out of here.

    • M-----l says:

      Yeah, maybe you need to step back for a day and listen to music you actually like.

      • crankypants says:

        haha…this is all coming up on my ‘recommended’ radio on last.fm, which means they are picking stuff based on what I put hearts next to, or artists I search. I am enjoying most of these songs, it’s just strange how inundated I am with this kind of music though because I’ve been listening to so much different stuff over the last couple weeks. I was listening to “Ennio Morricone radio” which gave me a lot of soundtrack stuff last week. Before that it was old jazz singers/musicians via Dinah Washington radio. Earlier this week I was listening to Chris Whitley radio, so it’s strange I am not getting more of a mix for my recommended radio. I guess I’ll have to switch to something more specific to get out of this TPS rut!

  52. crankypants says:

    oh it was Nina Simone, not Dinah Washington :P

  53. crankypants says:

    even when I listen to Mexican music I find ba-bas….

    liquits – desde que

  54. crankypants says:

    liquits–jardin

    hello seahorse!–4

    it’s only a snippet but the ba-bas come at the end.

    And that might be 100 for me. maybe 99. Maybe 101.

  55. crankypants says:

    my comment is awaiting moderation? Am I being ba-ba-ba-banned?!

    • M-----l says:

      I don’t know what that was about. I didn’t do anything. Maybe WordPress thought you were a spammer since you’ve left 37 comments on this post in the last two days. It’s funny that your comment about being moderated went through, though. Who knows? WordPress is weird.

  56. crankypants says:

    Natalia Lafourcade–Cursis Melodias

    pretty sure there are ba-bas in there eventually. lalas and doodoos too.

    • M-----l says:

      I don’t know what the heck she’s saying, but there’s something in there that sort of sounds like ba-ba. I’d probably reject that song on most days, but it’s just about the only Spanish pop song I’ve ever enjoyed so it’s going on the dang list anyway.

  57. crankypants says:

    yay!
    you will be so glad I won’t be around for nearly 3 days starting tomorrow (well bedtime tonight). At least I lessened the burden of making it to 1000 by Dec. 31st.

  58. silverchimes says:

    Passion Pit – Make Light

    They are background ba-bas (at least, I think they are).

    • M-----l says:

      There’s some sort of repetitive syllable at 1:33, but I can’t tell what it is. I hear “ba-ba”, but I might just be imagining it for the list. I really can’t tell. I’ve added it to the list, but I wish someone else would give it a listen and decide one way or the other. I really don’t want to listen a third time.

      By the way, I googled the terms “passion pit” and “ba ba” to see if I could find anywhere that mentioned ba-bahs in the lyrics to that song. I didn’t find what I was looking for, but I did find a song by Los Campesinos! that definitely was a ba-ba song.

      It almost felt like cheating.

      • silverchimes says:

        Passion Pit is definitely one that you can’t listen to repetitively. Sorry about that, but at least you found the Los Campensinos! song. I’m listening to it now – a very nice ba-ba song.

        • M-----l says:

          I wasn’t suggesting it was a bad song. I just happened to be listening to something else at the time. I had to put it on pause while I listened to the Passion Pit song and I couldn’t tell what I was hearing and it just got frustrating. I like it best when the songs are straight-forward ba-bahs. My brain plays tricks on me when the songs fall in that gray area.

  59. silverchimes says:

    The Januaries – The Girls Insane

    On YouTube there is only the Thievery Corporation remix of the song and it doesn’t have the ba-bas. I bought the album from the iTunes store (with DRM!). I’ll see if I can “re-rip” a CD I made from the AAC files.

  60. crankypants says:

    I dunno, the lyrics on 2 sites say this is “bop bop a chu da bopa”

    but–
    Buddy Knox–Lovey Dovey

    I’ll let you decide.

    • M-----l says:

      “Lovey Dovey” is awesome and I’d like to include it despite the lyrical discrepancy. Were the lyrics official from the artist or just something some weirdo transcribed?

      • crankypants says:

        Well, you know all those lyrics sites, it came up that way on 2 of them. I didn’t search any further than that as to where they came from, so I really don’t know. But you should go to youtube and listen to Chi-hua-hua.

        • M-----l says:

          Some of the musicians put the official lyrics on their websites and I’d find it hard to disregard those even if the song sounded like it had ba-bahs in it. It’s easy to ignore those stupid lyrics sites, though. I’ll have to listen to “Lovey Dovey” nine more times and decide.

          • crankypants says:

            yeah, and I figure a lot of the lyrics sites get what they can from the official artist sites or sheet music. but like I said I didn’t look for any official Buddy Knox site.

            here’s another I think may be ‘bop’s from that era–Rick Nelson–It’s Late. but it doesn’t come up in the lyrics probably since it’s in the background:

  61. crankypants says:

    even if it gets shot down I found a great song by the same guy called Chi-hua-hua on YT.

    • M-----l says:

      Hey, I found about ten of your comments in my spam folder. I added a song by the Pipas. I think I’m going to pass on Buddy Knox and Ricky Nelson. They’re not definitive ba-bahs and that’s really what I should be shooting for.

      • crankypants says:

        that was probably the day I made like 60 comments here.
        wait—you gave Barbapapa a spot, even though clearly it’s not ba-bas? Have you been starting on the eggnog a little early?

        • M-----l says:

          I don’t know if it’s ba-bahs or what. I didn’t actually listen to the thing. If they’re singing barbapapa then I’ll take it off.

          Please cut me some slack. I’m drunk Voxin’ here.

          • crankypants says:

            You rejected it on the 15th.

            Also I am listening to Passion Pit, the one Silverchimes posted, with the naked ear it sounds like ba-bas to me. but I cannot listen to that band, it’s like nails on a chalkboard (the voice) and then just a lot of cacophony in the background. I’m not sure how they got so popular. (sorry silverchimes and anyone else who likes them)

          • M-----l says:

            Okay, Passion Pit is in. “Barbapapa” is out. “Kokomo Island” is in. “Lovey Dovey” is out. Rick Nelson is out. From here on in, I’m only including definites. I’m getting a headache.

            I’m also going to delete about half these comments over the weekend. Homey can’t even view this post anymore, it’s gotten so big.

          • silverchimes says:

            I’m really not a huge fan of Passion Pit. I’m just on the “2009″ phase of my year long listening project and their album “Manners” was released that year. Dave Raleigh (also one of my last.fm friends) was listening to them a lot when the album came out so I downloaded it from eMusic. I’ve only listened to it 3-4 times since then!

  62. crankypants says:

    Yeah, this post usually loads really slow for me especially on my home computer. I’m sure it doesn’t help that some of my links came up as YT videos.
    I didn’t mean to cause you any headaches, I just wanted to point out that you’d rejected Barbapapa a while ago, etc.

  63. silverchimes says:

    I just had a major flashback to my freshman year in college.

    The B-52′s – Butterbean

    The ba-bas start at 3:40 in case you want to skip over the song part.

  64. crankypants says:

    here’s another ba-ba/bop/bop song—Tommy Blake-Flat Foot Sam (it’s the middle one)
    (figured it was better than linking to the YT videos…)

  65. crankypants says:

    okay…here’s one–it came up on Last.fm as The Crickets, but it’s Buddy Holly and…(of course) “It’s Too Late

    (right before the 2 minute mark)

    • M-----l says:

      I have that song and have listened to it since I started this list, but I somehow missed the ba-bahs. I don’t know. Maybe I heard them as bops or something. It sounds good now, though, so thanks.

    • M-----l says:

      Thanks. I hope you don’t mind but I turned the video into a link. I wasn’t able to watch the video from here anyway due to some stupid YouTube restrictions.

      As you may have noticed, I also turned your other videos into links and deleted all the comments originally posted on Vox. This post is too long as it is and I think it’ll load faster without all the old comments (many of which didn’t import properly anyway). I’ll probably go back and combine some of the more recent comments and delete a few as I continue the clean-up.

  66. crankypants says:

    Henry’s Dress–Self-Starter

    (the ba-bas come at the end, sorry about the video, I couldn’t find the song anywhere)

  67. crankypants says:

    I really can’t tell if this is ba-bas, da-das, ba-das, or da-bas. Maybe it’s none of the above.

    You Am I–Mr. Milk.

  68. crankypants says:

    no why did that one come up as a video and not the other one? (sorry) and the questionable ba-bas start somewhere around 2:20 or 2:25 I think.

    • M-----l says:

      To make it even worse, Sony Music Entertainment wouldn’t let me play the dang thing. I had to go to YouTube (grrr). Like you, I couldn’t tell what the heck they were saying. I looked the lyrics up on two sites and both said it was a da-da song. Oh well.

      • crankypants says:

        I saw that on one lyric site, but when I listened close it sounded like it could have had some bas in there so I figured I’d let you decide. oh well indeed!
        and just because I actually listened to “twee tag radio” I came up w/almost nothing. I guess I have to quit trying!

  69. silverchimes says:

    990! So close. I gonna do some serious listening for ba-ba’s today since I won’t be in the lab. (yea!).

  70. silverchimes says:

    Poe – Haunted

    It’s not really a happy ba-ba song, but there are plenty of ba-ba’s there.

    • M-----l says:

      Happy has nothing to do with it. A lot of my favorite ba-ba songs (“7:30″, “Retrieval of You”, “Care of Cell 44″, etc.) are downright depressing.

      Thanks for the addition.

  71. homebody says:

    Greenberry Woods – #37 (Feels So Strange)

    • M-----l says:

      Thanks. It looks like we might be able to wrap things up in the next few days. I’d probably contribute more if I stopped listening to the same Sneetches and Robyn Hitchcock CDs over and over again.

  72. silverchimes says:

    The Brilliant Corners – Shangri-la

    It’s fairly good. I could probably do without the last 2.5 minutes of the song, though.

    • M-----l says:

      Dang! I just got Somebody Up There Likes Me/Joy Ride in the mail two days ago, but I haven’t listened to it yet. I’ve really been looking forward to putting it on and finding a bunch of ba-bahs. It looks like you beat me to it. Did you listen to all the other songs or just happen to find “Shangri-la”?

      • silverchimes says:

        I listened to the whole album while doing other things, so I wasn’t giving it my full attention. Shangri-la came on while I was on the train so my attention was a bit more focused.

    The Legend – This Town

    This is a June Brides cover. There’s a free download on last.fm

    source 1 didn’t work, #2 kept buffering, but plays.

  75. crankypants says:

    OMG!! 999!! I found one but it’s already on the list. dang.

  76. crankypants says:

    DAMN! I found another one but it’s already up there.

  77. hotrod says:

    HA! No, but there is one. Baaah-ba-ba-bum, baaah-ba-ba-bum….

  78. homebody says:

    Hmm…. at the very, very end of Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” are potential ba-bas. Or bom-boms…

  79. silverchimes says:

    Cool! 1000 songs! A lot happens when I’m asleep.

    Not that you need another one…
    Ivy – While We’re in Love

  80. crankypants says:

    Oh well, it’s fitting you got your own 1000th! I was so busy all day, I only had last.fm on for a little bit and the 2 or 3 ba-ba songs I heard were repeats. Congrats on a thousand. I bought 9 mini cupcakes to celebrate.

  81. crankypants says:

    sorry, no red velvet. The box has 3 each of 3 flavors. Take it up with Joe. Trader Joe. I have something else though I think I will send out to you.

  82. crankypants says:

    You must have all the c86 ba-bah songs already.

  83. crankypants says:

    I don’t know about this one, I thought I heard ba-bas way at the end but I think my ears are messing with me.
    anyway…

    Modesty Blaise–Carol Mountain

    • M-----l says:

      I think I hear what you’re talking about at the end, but it’s too hard for me to hear anything for certain. There’s a bit of background vocalizing that might be ba-bah, but it’s drowned out by horns before I can get my ears tuned in. I’m going to hold off on that one, I think. Very cool song, though. I liked it enough to accidentally purchase A Beginner’s Guide to Modesty Blaise for $2.49 on Amazon.

  84. crankypants says:

    Groove Farm–The Best Part of Being With You

    I’m in a hurry so I haven’t found the song yet but the lyrics have it!!

    Glad you liked MB enough to accidentally make a purchase! I thought they sounded pretty good too and that you might like them.

    PS I am headed to the PO in a few minutes just to give you a heads up to look for an envelope for Babo sometime next week.

    • M-----l says:

      Hey, are you just plugging ba-ba bands into google and seeing what pops up? That’s completely against the spirit of the ba-ba search.

      (I’ll tell Sailor Babo to keep an eye out for the mail.)

      • crankypants says:

        I’m insulted that you would even suggest such a thing!
        Most of what I’ve found lately is via last.fm.

        • M-----l says:

          Sure, but how did you end up with the lyrics to the song without having the song itself? That sounds suspicious.

          • crankypants says:

            I heard it on last.fm.
            I did a quick search, only saw sketchy mp3 download sites, couldn’t find it on their myspace, saw that someone had the lyrics and clicked on it, saw ba-bas and there you go. If you like, after I walk the dog I will search harder for the actual song.

          • M-----l says:

            Ahh, you’d heard the song, but hadn’t actually found a copy of it. I misunderstood. I thought you hadn’t even heard it yet. This whole thing would probably make more sense if I knew how last.fm worked.

            No need to search for the actual song. I’m (mostly) just goofing with you anyway.

  85. crankypants says:

    Last.fm is basically a radio. You can search for an artist or a genre or a tag and then play that ‘radio station’, and it will come up with artists that are similar. You can then try ‘recommended’ radio, or your neighbor’s radio or a mix of what you have already been playing, and you can “love” a track, and that helps with your recommendations. Lately my recommended radio is a lot of old old blues and c86 stuff and not a whole lot more. It gets interesting. So anyway, I can’t link to songs on there for you. If you joined I could send it to you via a ‘shout’ or message, like I send Silverchimes Jennifer songs. Homey knows too! Just a thought for some of those harder to find songs.

  86. crankypants says:

    here’s another questionable one

    Girls at Our Best–Fast Boyfriends

    click on the music note next to the song and a WMA file pops up. every time I thought it was wa-wa (it’s at the very end) then it started to sound like ba-ba.

  87. crankypants says:

    Cloud Cult–Everybody Here Is a Cloud
    I thought I gave you this already but I guess it was something else to do with clouds.

    ohhh Half-handed Cloud was the one I was thinking of.

    • M-----l says:

      I can’t seem to play the Girls at Our Best song. I’m going to skip it since you seem to think it’s a wa-wa anyway. I’ve added the cloud song, though.

  88. crankypants says:

    We should have 1,011 by 2011!

  89. silverchimes says:

    I listened to Silver Sun’s “You Are Here” this morning on the bus and thought it was a gold mine of ba-bas. You’ve already got them, dang it!

    • M-----l says:

      There’s still a lot of their music I haven’t gotten to yet, but I definitely remember listening to You Are Here over the summer. Gold mine, indeed!

    • phantomxii says:

      Good catch on The Bravery’s “Angelina”, silverchimes. I knew “Time Won’t Let Me Go” was on this list, but I just heard the ba-bas on “Angelina” while listening to that excellent album this morning, and I see you’re already on it. :-)

    • M-----l says:

      Ooh, that’s a really good one. Enough years have gone by…maybe I should finally revisit Out of Time. I wonder if it still has that horrible guest spot from KRS-One (who I’m pretty sure I saw in the “Near Wild Heaven” video) or if they’ve maybe edited out his contribution.

  90. crankypants says:

    Megafaun–Find Your Mark

    there’s a whole minute of ba-bas I think….

  91. crankypants says:

    oooh i’m on a roll!

  92. homebody says:

    Jesus and Mary Chain – Cut Dead (acoustic)

  93. crankypants says:

    Richard Hell and the Voidoids–The Kid With The Replaceable Head

    it should work when you click on the song, it’s working for me, anyway, if not, try YT.

  94. crankypants says:

    shit! sorry about the entire video, one of these days I’ll follow the instructions you gave me.

  95. silverchimes says:

    Lindsey Buckingham – Countdown

    I saw him play at The Back Room in Austin, TX on his “Out of the Cradle” tour. Can’t remember if he played Countdown or not, though.

  96. crankypants says:

    Okay, because I am a weirdo and I lave a thing for lists and counting certain things, I counted up —wait—I printed out this list of ba-ba songs, THEN I counted how many I had found, then homebody, then silverchimes.

    (as of 9:18 pm eastern time, 1/24/11)—-
    Homebody: 155
    Crankypants: 123
    Silverchimes: 81

    I honestly thought Homey was up around the 300 mark, I guess all the runs of artists with ba-ba songs she finds is a little deceiving. or something.
    thus endeth my nerdballism. (for tonight)

  97. crankypants says:

    Damn, you have the Bobby Bare Jr ba-ba song! I asked him what song it was and he said it was on one that I got, I told him I have a friend who collects ba-ba songs, he said well, you know, it’s the same in Portuguese! haha! Well, it was funny when he said it.

  98. homebody says:

    Cinerama – Kerry Kerry

  99. crankypants says:

    Strawberry Alarm Clock–Incense and Peppermints. Those are ba-bas at the beginning right?oh yeah, if you lip read…

    • M-----l says:

      I’ve gone back and forth on that song. I rejected it last time, but it really sounds like ba-bahs at the beginning in the video. That’s good enough for me.

  100. crankypants says:

    The Association–Never My Love

    i hope that works for you, it may actually be the whole song.

  101. crankypants says:

    I wondered why it wasn’t up there, but it seemed pretty obvious to me though maybe it was too many das and not enough bas?

    • M-----l says:

      The Association’s Greatest Hits was one of the very first CDs I put on when I started looking. Of the 13 songs on the CD, there were 3 definites and about a half dozen questionables (including “Never My Love”). I even brought out the fancypants headphones and listened that way. It was very frustrating and I eventually just gave up.

  102. crankypants says:

    Oooh, I’m hearing a different version on YT than on Last.fm, I think. I know why it frustrated you. I am almost positive I heard a version that has more distinct ba-bas.

  103. crankypants says:

    never mind, I am tripping. I can’t trust my ears anymore.

  104. crankypants says:

    Strawberry Alarm Clock – Tomorrow

  105. crankypants says:

    hey don’t forget to give proper credit on that Zombies tune…!

  106. crankypants says:

    Okay, I guess maybe since it was at the top of the Zs I didn’t notice it, or was looking for a “The” ahead of it or something. Oh well. I believe you, I’ll forget to check the list anyway. if i can find it haha!

  107. Pants of Cranky says:

    For some reason Turdpress is not showing a log in anywhere on here, after I was, for some unknown reason, logged out.

    Anyway:
    Fresh & Onlys–Summer of Love

  108. silverchimes says:

    For the last 6 weeks or so I’ve been working everynight until 10 or 11 pm then coming home and having some sort of mental breakdown. In lieu of a mental breakdown, last night I decided to buy a bunch of music.

    The Orchids – Bringing You the Love

    • M-----l says:

      I’ve noticed you haven’t been around lately. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been going crazy from overwork, but at least you’ve remembered the healing power of new tunes.

  109. crankypants says:

    Julian Lennon – Too Late For Goodbyes

  110. silverchimes says:

    Lisa Loeb – Garden of Delights

    Left work at 9 pm tonight. Hoping I can make it home before 8 pm at least one day this week. Sorry I’ve missed all of the voting on your facial hair!

  111. crankypants says:

    Hi Homey!! (waves furiously) (well, it’s not that I’m furious, just furiously waving)

  112. homebody says:

    Astrud Gilberto – Não Bate e Coroção

  113. homebody says:

    appliance repair guy – acapella scat song

  114. sailorbabo says:

    Delta Spirit – People C’mon

    Beach Boys–Vegetables
    well the lyrics say it’s ‘bop-bop” I’ll let you decide, though you probably already heard it and decided against it.

  116. crankypants says:

    Sagittarius–Would You Like to Go
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY0zXmrEh2E

    (I put a space in after the .com/ to try to avoid putting up the whole video)
    you can skip to 1:40

  117. crankypants says:

    Bright Eyes–Make a Plan To Love Me

  118. crankypants says:

    So, I was in Trader Joe’s tonight and after I had sampled the meatballs, fixed myself a tiny cup of coffee with, for the hundredth time, WAY too much half and half because the thing just dumps it all right in there with no portion control possible, and as I was trying not to burn my mouth or fingers on said coffee, I noticed over the speakers a song which contained ONLY ba-bas. I hadn’t been paying enough attention heretofore to know if there were other lyrics, and I couldn’t hear it well enough to get a handle on the voices, if they were recognizable or not, all I can tell you is there had to be at least a full minute of ba-bas and only ba-bas at the end of the song, and that it seemed that it was Oldies of the 1960s Night at the Ardmore Trader Joe’s. I remember a Beach Boys song, and that the other couple songs I heard were from that era. Now you are either going to tell me, Oh yeah, that’s probably … or else you are going to make a face at me and say, do you really expect me to know what the hell you are talking about?
    All I’m really saying is that I heard a genuine ba-ba song tonight that was probably from the 1960s, but I have no way of identifying it. I could google it but that would be cheating, right? I wouldn’t want to cheat a ba-ba.
    The End.
    Good Night.

  119. homebody says:

    Josh Rouse – Wonderful (Subtítulo version)

    • M-----l says:

      I wonder why I have some rare demo version up there and managed to overlook the album version. Maybe I haven’t heard Subtítulo in awhile. It is my least favorite Rouse.

    I can’t believe I missed this before when I got one off this album already.

  131. crankypants says:

    Stevie Wonder–Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing

    I think those are ba-bas. I also don’t know how I missed this one (unless you already rejected it) because I got another one off this album.

  132. crankypants says:

    Stevie Wonder–You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

    sounds like ba-bas in there to me, anyway.

    • M-----l says:

      I’m going to take your word on this one. There’s no way I’m going to listen to that schmaltzy poo right now. Minute Maid totally ruined that song for me.

      • crankypants says:

        I submitted this one but I think we both rejected it because the lyrics said it was “barbapipa”, even though it sounds like “ba-ba pipa”, if I remember correctly.

        • M-----l says:

          It looks like you and Silverchimes both submitted that song. And now Homey is joining in. Maybe I should include the song just so nobody else submits it.

  141. homebody says:

    Pipas – Rock and/or Roll

  142. crankypants says:

    Sondre Lerche–Ricochet
    http://stuft.multiply.com/journal/item/68/Sondre_Lerche_Ba-ba_apologies_to_Homey

    I feel bad about this one. Homey alerted me to his new album being $3.99 on Amazon daily download deal today, I get those notifications but I missed it. So really Homey should get it, but, whatever. This is a competeition dammit. What? it’s not?

  144. crankypants says:

    competition, even.

    • M-----l says:

      If that’s how it works, then I should get credit…as I sent her an e-mail yesterday telling her Sondre Lerche’s new one comes out today. Hooray for me!

  145. crankypants says:

    oh, so you’re taking credit then?
    I love how this new swanky fancypants comment box has the twitter and facebook log ins and now it takes forever to post.

    • M-----l says:

      I usually think the person who submits the song should get the credit, but a part of me also feels that you need to be punished for submitting the McDonald’s commercial theme.

      (Yay, now people can ignore my posts with two more services!)

  146. M-----l says:

    Hey Cranky,

    I’m not sure if you’re still keeping tracking of your numbers, but I saw fit to remove your “Pleasant Valley Sunday” today. I heard it in the car and it sounds like a ta-ta song to me.

    M—–l

    • crankypants says:

      Listening to it again on the video I can see (well, hear) what you mean. However, as crappy as the sound on the video is, I still hear ba-bas sometimes, along with da-das or ta-tas and it appears that everyone is saying “ba-ba’ except for Mike who of course has to be different and is saying ta-ta or da-da.

      • M-----l says:

        Where is this video? I can’t find your original comment above.

        • crankypants says:

          Oh whoa, you’re right (maybe)…I found a YT audio only version which is clearer, but also that part is MUCH more pronounced and it definitely sounds like ta-ta, but here is the video so you can see and hear what I meant.

          and here’s the audio only one I just heard:

          • M-----l says:

            First off, M—–l Nesmith is awesome. You can almost tell he hates being in the band. He was the best, though. The Monkees recently came to town, but it was only the other three so I skipped the show.

            As far as the first video goes, they’re either doing a horrible job miming the words or the audio and the visual aren’t synced up properly. Sometimes it looks like Dolenz is saying ba-ba, but it never sounds like it to me. I don’t think I hear anything definitive at least.

            The audio on the second video is the same version I have on CD. It always sounds like ta-ta to me.

  147. crankypants says:

  156. crankypants says:

    I came across a scrap of paper with a Comet Gain song scribbled on it and I couldn’t get rid of it till I remembered to check your ba-ba list. Well, I’m pretty sure it was the same one I did give you but I decided to listen to some Comet Gain songs on Myspace (or My__ as it’s now so cleverly monikered) thinking there might be more ba-bas. After the first few they really didn’t seem like a band whose lyrics would yield too many ba-bas, but I listened on, because for some reason I could not stop. The music is decent. After 30-some-odd songs I was about to give up and decided okay, one more, and wouldn’t you know it: a ba-ba song.

    Comet Gain–Labour

      I don’t really have a number goal right now. 1,234 was the big one for me. I always intended to compile 4 volumes of the Ba-Ba Box Set, but it’s been a long time since I put together the third one. Maybe I should get to work on that. I don’t really know.

          I think we would have trouble hitting 2,000 by the end of the year. We’d have to cheat with Google. Let’s say the goal is 1,500 and Volume 4 by 2012. Now get listening!

    sounds like babas to me at the end there

  178. crankypants says:

    The Whitlams–White Horses.
    I can’t find the song, only samples that don’t have the ba-da-ba-ba part at the end…grrrrr

  179. crankypants says:

    Julien Doré–Baie des Anges

  180. crankypants says:

    Okay I have been listening to the soundtrack to Head for a week or 2 straight in my car and I am not hearing a ba-ba anywhere in The Porpoise Song. What version do you have?

    • M-----l says:

      I was probably listening to the single version from the Best of the Monkees compilation CD. I’ll double-check this afternoon and make any necessary adjustments to the list.

      • crankypants says:

        I know there may be a couple versions, so far I haven’t found anything on YT. I’d like to hear the ba-ba version if you can post it somewhere though.

        • M-----l says:

          I’ve listened to the single version three times and it sounds like it might be a false positive. I think I must’ve misheard the “good-bye, good-bye” line. I’ve removed the song from the list.

  181. crankypants says:

    Well, here’s one to make up for the Monkees song I undid:
    http://soundcloud.com/mexicaninstituteofsound/cucu-diamantes-tucanes-de-tijuana-mi-burrito-mexican-institute-of-sound-remix
    Cucu Diamantes & Tucanes de Tijuana–Mi Burrito (Mexican Institute of Sound remix) (ba-bas around the 3:15 mark, or that’s when I noticed)

  182. crankypants says:

    annnnnd another—http://soundcloud.com/mexicaninstituteofsound/bikini-mexican-institute-of-sound-remix-carlo-coupe

    I think the song is Bikini and the artist is Carlo Coupe (MIS remix)

  183. crankypants says:

    I can’t find it anywhere but I just heard it on last.fm, you’ll have to take my word on it (or not)

    The Crooner–Alberto Caeiro

    it’s chock full of ba-da-ba-bas.

  184. crankypants says:

    Cali–C’est Toujours Le Matin

    (around the 2 min mark)

  185. silverchimes says:

    Finally! I thought I’d go through the rest of my life without finding another ba-ba song.

    Metric – Empty.

    ba-ba-das are around the 4 minute mark.

  186. crankypants says:

    Thomas Dutronc–Nasdaq
    http://www.myspace.com/thomasdutronc/music/songs?filter=featured

    I think I heard a longer version of this song on last.fm, either way the one on the myspace player has ba-bas.

  187. crankypants says:

    Anais–J’sais pas

    (babas around 1:13)

  188. crankypants says:

    I think these are more buhs or bums but I’ll let you decide–

    Cream–I Feel Free

  189. silverchimes says:

    I don’t listen to Thai radio much anymore, but I happened to catch this song while working in the lab this afternoon. I’m happy that I finally found a Thai ba-ba song. The ba-bas start around 1.29.

    Paradox – คนบนฟ้า

    The English spelling would be “Kon Bon Faa” (“person in the sky”).

  190. Heathenjay says:

    You’re missing the best one: King Crimson – Easy Money

    • M-----l says:

      I just listened to 7:53 of that song and didn’t hear a single ba. I’ve been had!

      • phantomxii says:

        Without actually putting on the CD, the best transcription I can offer is “Be ba doo dow now, da doobie ow, bunna now, da doot do!” I have no idea what it says if you reverse the song, thus hearing that vocal played forwards.

        • M-----l says:

          I need a particular minute:second in the song when the ba-bahs begin. The song wasn’t bad, but I don’t think I can give up another 7:53 of my life listening all the way through again.

          • phantomxii says:

            The indecipherable singing in question starts around 0:14. Listening to it now, I’m not sure the part was recorded backwards; it almost sounds like someone pretending to sing backwards, with hopes of luring the listener into spinning the record backwards and growing only more confused. I wouldn’t put it past them. (If the lead vocal sounds familiar, it’s John Wetton, who had a couple of hits with Asia in the eighties.)

  191. crankypants says:

    glass pear–streets of love

    it’s a pretty crappy song, and for that I apologize in posting it here.

    There was a ba-ba song playing in the Indian restaurant we went to on Saturday night but I am pretty sure I’d never find it in a million years. I’d just call it Indian Ba-ba by Shere-E Punjab Radio if you want to include it.

    • M-----l says:

      Yes, that is a pretty crappy song. I’m happy he threw in some ba-bahs, though. The song would’ve been even worse if he’d tried to write real lyrics in that spot.

  192. crankypants says:

    La Tordue–Contre Vous

    (it’s at the end)

  193. homebody says:

    Girl in a Coma – Smart

  194. homebody says:

    Billy Williams – I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter

  195. crankypants says:

    Danny and the Juniors–At the Hop

  196. crankypants says:

    Glen Glenn–Don’t You Love Me

  197. silverchimes says:

    Ivy – Worry About You

    I haven’t put my iTunes on shuffle in a long time. Seems I find more ba-ba songs that way!

  198. crankypants says:

    Nancy Sinatra–Day Tripper

    you’re welcome.

  199. crankypants says:

    Elizaveta–Dreamer
    http://elizaveta.typepad.com/
    (there’s a video, or else 2nd song on the player on the side)

  200. crankypants says:

    Oh and another one..
    Elizaveta–Odi et Amo

  201. crankypants says:

    lol @ ‘homeybody’

  202. homebody says:

    Jens Lekman – A Postcard to Nina

  203. homebody says:

    Northern Picture Library – Skylight
    (I’m surprised you don’t have that one already!)

    • M-----l says:

      The Northern Picture Library and Jens Lekman songs are both ones I own and have listened to at least a dozen times. I will revisit those songs to hear what I’ve been missing.

  204. Mindy says:

    The Unicorns – Sea Ghost

    Telekinesis – Gotta Get It RIght Now

  205. crankypants says:

    I haven’t found a ba-ba song since Dec. 29th?!

  206. crankypants says:

    Go figure, I randomly started watching some Canadian tv show I’d never heard of called Being Erica on imdb and its theme is a ba-ba song.

    Lily Frost–All I Ever Wanted To Be

  207. homebody says:

    Sondre Lerche – Mr. Bassman

  208. crankypants says:

    I was in Trader Joe’s tonight and I heard what I thought was a baba song, The In Crowd. I looked it up, and it’s NOT the one by some young dorkface named Mitchel Musso but the oldie by Dobie Gray. I listened to it about 4 or 5 times and have concluded that it’s not a ba-ba song anyway.
    8-D

  209. crankypants says:

    Once again, I started watching (this time) a movie, called Divorcing Jack, and bam! Ba-ba song.

    The only record of it I could find on the internet is a clip of the movie on YT. The credits say it is called Mr. Wonderful by Mike Flowers.

    • M-----l says:

      I watched Winchester ’73 last night. It featured Jimmy Stewart and a surprisingly cute Shelley Winters, but zero ba-ba songs. Oh well. Thanks for yours.

    • homebody says:

      Did you like the movie? Would you recommend for someone who likes David Thewlis?

      • crankypants says:

        I liked it. and yeah it’s probably good for someone who likes him. I had him mixed up with someone else at first and I had to stop the movie and look him up. I know the name but nothing that was listed for him is anything I’ve ever seen. Oh, wait…I have seen him in 3 things–The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, Gangster No. 1, and The Big Lebowski but I don’t remember him really. But he plays a sloppy, manic drunk Northern Irishman, he’s pretty good. Rachel Griffiths is good and if you’ve ever seen The Commitments (among other movies)you’ll recognize the taxi driver. Plus I think half the cast is in Harry Potter movies.

        • homebody says:

          Thanks – I definitely want to see it now. Outside of Harry Pottter the only thing I can remember seeing David Thewlis in was a rather goofy action-adventure time-travel movie with Gerard Butler in the cast.

  210. homebody says:

    Tronics – They’re Talking about Us

  211. crankypants says:

    okay what about Drive In Saturday?

    (my speakers here are crap & I have no headphones at work)

  212. crankypants says:

    they sound like ba-bas to me anyway…maybe they aren’t

  213. Mindy says:

    Terry Malts – Tumble Down

    • M-----l says:

      I heard that one in a record store this afternoon. I have the name and title written down on the bottom of a case of cat food. I guess I’ll still give you credit for it, though…since you took the time to leave a comment (two days ago). Thanks.

  214. crankypants says:

    another movie song! I have been trying to track down the actual track name to no avail. I get movie clips and soundtrack listings but not enough samples. The song “Get a Bloomin’ Move On” I found has da-das though it’s basically the same song.
    But anyway it’s from the 1969 The Italian Job soundtrack by Quincy Jones.

    Here is a clip, the ba-bas start (clearly heard) around 2:50. They come back later in the clip too.

  215. homebody says:

    Andrew Bird – Near Death Experience Experience

  216. silverchimes says:

    Paul Brill – The Royal Oui

    You can listen to it on his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/paulbrill/music/songs/the-royal-oui-86150786

  217. M-----l says:

    ATTENTION! This page is loading slowly for me, so I’m going to go through and kill the videos and remove some of the links to songs I’ve already confirmed. I don’t know much about this stuff, but I hope that will speed things up a bit. I hope no one minds having their comments edited like that.

    Keep the songs coming. Thanks.

  218. homebody says:

    One of the songs that Eef Barzelay plays in the medley on the video on the current Clem Snide Kickstarter page:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1774302065/clem-snide-new-full-length-record-songs-for-mary

  219. homebody says:

    Lily Frost – Pantomime

  220. homebody says:

    Lily Frost – Insatiable

  221. homebody says:

    Albin DE LA Simone & Vanessa Paradis – Adrienne (track 3 on le pop 5)
    Eddy (La) Gooyatsh – Le bosquet (per the Chaud album sound samples on amazon.fr)

  222. homebody says:

    Carole King – Pleasant Valley Sunday (from The Legendary Demos, which Everyday had. Yay! But they didn’t have The Essential Carole King, so I hope Everybody or Shake It will, if I can wait that long.)

  223. homebody says:

    Eux Autres – Down Your Street

  224. homebody says:

    The School – You Make Me Hear Music (Inside My Head)

  225. crankypants says:

    Well of course I haven’t been able to find the whole song but here is part of it
    http://www.move.com.au/disc/the-rage-in-placid-lake-motion-picture-soundtrack
    it’s the first one, Free Falling. The ba-bas were clearer in the movie but maybe you can make them out at the end of the clip. The song is credited to Jacket.
    actually you can watch the whole movie on Youtube, the song in question is in the opening sequence. It stars Ben Lee.

  226. crankypants says:

    crap! Why did that come up? I thought the short link didn’t do that! I’m sorry. You can fix it. Anyway the babas come up about a minute thirty in, when they are eating crayons.

    • M-----l says:

      I don’t know which is worse…coming here and seeing W’s yokel grin staring back at me or seeing Ben Lee’s bowling pin head. Either way, I’m deleting those guys.

      Am I supposed to add:

      Jacket – Free Falling

      I’m kind of confused. But thanks.

  227. crankypants says:

    yeah, that’s right.

  228. homebody says:

    The Yearning – Kiss You in the Summertime
    The Yearning – Don’t Call Me Baby

  229. crankypants says:

    The One AM Radio–Credible Threats

    (take out the spaces)
    it’s a pretty good song too. I have had this for a few years from a free Amazon sampler and am just listening to it now.

  230. crankypants says:

    did you edit my comment so the video would show up? because when I saw my comment posted it had showed up as a partial link and the rest with a couple spaces in it.

    • M-----l says:

      Yes, I put the spaces back in because I couldn’t otherwise follow the link. I’m not sure why I did it that way. It doesn’t make much sense now that I think of it. I guess I’d rather have a big video in the comments than a broken link. Who knows?

  231. homebody says:

    The Beach Boys – Gee
    The Beach Boys – Do You Like Worms (Roll Plymouth Rock) (or it could be a bahm-bahm-bahm)

  232. homebody says:

    Saint Etienne – Wouldn’t It Be Nice?

  233. crankypants says:

    Darn it, I guess Homey does have that Chicas! CD, she got the Marisa Medina song I was going to post. Oh well. It only took 5 minutes and 58 tries to get the CD out of the car player.

  234. homebody says:

    The Ramones – This Ain’t Havana

  235. homebody says:

    Outkast featuring Norah Jones – Take Off Your Cool

  236. crankypants says:

    Rufus Wainwright–Out Of The Game
    Sounds like ba-bas around 2:10.
    It’s weird I heard this when I was in bed half asleep this morning and I heard the ba-bas more clearly. This seems to happen a lot. ba-bas or specific lyrics jump out at me that I don’t normally hear when I’m awake.

  237. crankypants says:

    http://music.yahoo.com/dusty-trails/
    (first or 2nd video)
    Dusty Trails–Dusty Happy End (from the Vincent D’Onofrio/Marisa Tomei movie Happy Accidents)
    ba-bas at about 2:18

  238. leviathon says:

    I saw king khan and the shrines recently at bumbershoot, they had an audience participation bit with ba ba ba ba in the chorus. Anyone know the song?

  239. homebody says:

    Gore Gore Girls – Your Last Chance

  240. homebody says:

    Beth Orton – Dawn Chorus

  241. homebody says:

    Bix Beiderbecke, Bing Crosby, and/or Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra (not sure which artist you should attribute this to, but I got it off a Bix Beiderbecke anthology) – There Ain’t No Sweet Man That’s Worth the Salt of My Tears

  242. crankypants says:

    Seal–Kiss From A Rose

  243. crankypants says:

    dammit, Homey already got Ivy–Ba Ba Ba. I heard it in CVS this morning.

  244. crankypants says:

    Kim Richey–Wreck Your Wheels

  245. crankypants says:

    United Future Organization–Good Luck Shore
    http://www.blastro.com/ player/unitedfutureorganizationgoodluckshore.html?1=1&detect_bitrate=_2000
    (take out the space)

  246. crankypants says:

    truby trio–a festa
    http://www.youtube. com/watch?v=MrZHMUgcUI0
    I think it’s ba-bas not pa-pas, it’s hard to tell. (starts around the 5 minute mark)

  247. crankypants says:

    Monade–Invitation
    http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=x-nEMu5qu5g
    (starts around the 6:00 mark)

  248. crankypants says:

    Wow I can’t believe you don’t have this one:
    Pipas–Moss Oval
    http://grooveshark.com/#!/artist/Pipas/235544
    (it’s under “Moss Oral” heh)

  249. crankypants says:

    Eggstone–Brass
    http://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=fYGbzjcdUrs
    I think I’ve heard more new ba-ba songs this week than in the last 6 months!

  250. crankypants says:

    Tahiti 80–Easy Way Out
    http://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=xU_ZuVZRsFw

  251. crankypants says:

    Komeda–Fire
    http://www.youtube. com/watch?v=miDkW2eRbrQ
    (I think it ba-bas around halfway through, I’m not mistaking the fire fires for ba-bas)
    (I don’t think)

    • M-----l says:

      I bought that CD earlier this year and rejected that song.

      • crankypants says:

        really? what did you determine the non ba-bas were?

        • M-----l says:

          I don’t remember. I listened to it 10 times, though. I will add it just so I don’t have to listen to it again.

          (I tried to like your Chase Utley, but I spent five minutes and I still couldn’t find the like button anywhere.)

          • crankypants says:

            Oh I’m not saying that I doubt you–I know my ears AND my speakers here at work aren’t good. Plus I have some background noise. You listened to it 10 times so I trust you. I was just wondering what it actually was. I’ll give it a closer listen at home. I’m not trying to bully you into adding it!!
            Were you signed in when you tried to like Chase?

  252. crankypants says:

    The Free Design–The Proper Ornaments
    http://www.youtu be.com/watch?v=bEEs5jSGJuA
    no doubt on this one

  253. crankypants says:

    Okay I think this is a legit Komeda Ba-ba: Snurrig Bossanova

  254. crankypants says:

    Wondermints–On The Run
    http://www.youtu be.com/watch?v=fCnZN4KL5YE

  255. crankypants says:

    I’m not sure about this one because the heater blower came on as the song was but I am hoping to check it out later so I’m going to leave it here: Monade–Ode To A Keyring

    • crankypants says:

      Okay after having trouble finding the one with vocals, I finally did and I don’t know, there is a small section where she is like, ba-da dah, ba-da da dahhh, but overall I don’t think it’s a very good ba-ba song. There were a bunch of bum-bum-bums.

  256. silverchimes says:

    ABC – S.O.S.

    I apologize about the cheesy 80s video link.

  257. silverchimes says:

    The Russian Futurists – Our Pen’s Out of Ink

  258. crankypants says:

    Citizen Cope – Nite Becomes Day

    I’ve had this CD for years, shows you how much I’ve listened to it, I heard it on the radio this morning. Actually I was just thinking about ba-bas or you and homey, I forget what, maybe all the snow when you visited, and boom, here comes a baba song.

    • M-----l says:

      I think you were really thinking about how totally awesome my KttD performance was. “Time of the Season” came on in the car this morning and I belted that thing out. I still got it!

      • crankypants says:

        haha! maybe that was it. You must have been in the car early!! I bet your car’s acoustics made you sound even better than KttD (do they still hold that do you know? Did I already ask about it this year?)

  259. crankypants says:

    Beatriz Luengo – Chicas de Revista

  260. silverchimes says:

    The Ocean Blue – Blow My Mind

    I was in Minneapolis last week and saw these guys live. It was kinda cool when the ba-bas started!

  261. silverchimes says:

    Whoa! Did I miss Volume 4 somewhere?

    • M-----l says:

      I just checked the old post where I unleashed Volume 4 on the world. You commented on it saying that you’d missed the download day because you were on vacation. I didn’t offer to send it to you at the time, but I will if you want. You probably already have most of the songs anyway.

  262. crankypants says:

    The Cat Empire – Protons Neutrons Electrons

  263. homebody says:

    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – Sabor a Fresa
    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – Brincadeira

    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – The suitcase (or that might be da-das)
    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – Manias de Maria (I think.. if da-ba-da counts)
    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – No te acuerdas de mi
    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – Un Dia de Lluvia
    Nueva Banda de Santisteban – Nuestro Ayer

    I bought you the copy of Sabor a Fresa they were playing in Everyday when I popped in for the new Matt Pond.

  264. homebody says:

    p.s., what happened to the link to Scott McCaughey’s shoe?!?

  265. crankypants says:

    Marcos Valle – On Line

  268. silverchimes says:

    Ryan Shupe & the RubberBand – Oh How I Miss You

    Tarmac Adam–Chalk on Slate

  271. Paul Thie says:

    I thought I had one but there it is number1065

    • M-----l says:

      I added the recent arrivals into the master list, so now it looks like you were listening to “I Think I Love You” by the Partridge Family.

  272. crankypants says:

    I still chuckle every time I see ‘Fake Chris Whitley’.

  273. silverchimes says:

    Violent Femmes – Promise
    Babas start around 1:41

    Lenka – Dangerous and Sweet

  280. homebody says:

    Yo La Tengo – Black Flowers had ba-bas in Friday night’s show
    Yo La Tengo – Deeper Into Movies live acoustic, or at least I *think* that was the song (it included the lyric “sitting here alone” and night time), but would have been a much lighter/quieter version that the album version.

  281. crankypants says:

    testing testing
    maybe I can leave a comment without a youtube link

  282. homebody says:

    The Fastbacks – Midnight Confessions

  283. crankypants says:

    The “Ask Amy” theme

  284. crankypants says:

    for some reason every time I put in a link the comment goes somewhere farther up. so you can get the link from your email notification or look it up on YT–Talib Kweli–Get By

  285. no way says:

    theme song for UK 70s TV show “Jim’ll f*ck oops, I mean fix it” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neCP_xu18k8

  286. crankypants says:

    The Frank and Walters – After All

    you can play the song, it’s not typed out in the lyrics, but it’s around 2:15 or so, “la-la-la, da-da-da, ba-ba-ba”
    not a bad song either.

  287. crankypants says:

    Maybe you already dismissed this one but Monsters of Folk–Dear God

    sounds like ba-bas but maybe not

  288. Alan Gardner says:

    Have you considered Robbie Williams – Road to Mandalay

  289. crankypants says:

    Russian Army Choir – Get Lucky (Daft Punk cover)

  290. homebody says:

    Maybe: Sufjan Stevens – Hey Guys! It’s Christmas Time!

    Also maybe: SS – Joy to the World

  292. Kaul says:

    What is the song that has ‘ba da ba da etc.’ lyrics by a woman may be French, the ba de ba da de is similar to Astrud Gilberto’s Bossa na praia? please
