A perplexed reader has written in with one of the hardest “name that tune” requests the ol’ tips at idolator dot com inbox has seen in some time. After much deliberation among the editorial staff–i.e. plugging the provided lyrics into Google and coming up empty–we must throw up our hands. But perhaps you can tell us what this song might be before we pull our (metaphorical in some cases) hair out. There will even be a prize!
hi how how are you. I have had this song in my head for months the only problem is i dont really know the words. its as i would say hummable and has a more up tempo beat. the person singing is is rather mellow. all i know is they go “ey” or “hey na na” say some other stuff then say “na na” again and and then maybe say” cut it up and spit it back out, and im out, and im out”. i have no clue! its sooo annoying having a song in my head that i dont know the lyrics, or even what its about. just thats its up tempo and they might say something like ey na na a bunch. i doubt if you can help but if you can ohh my that would be great.
So there it is, folks. Prize is yet to be determined, but it may involve a case of Turtle Wax. Or perhaps a full line of fine menswear from Botany 500, venerable outfitter of guys who read teleprompters. Creative and/or hilarious runners up will of course receive some fabulous parting gifts. And don’t forget to join us tomorrow, when we’ll be rolling out new features like musical Plinko and a game involving a little yodeling alpine hiker forced to listen to as much of the Hype Machine Top 50 as he can stomach before throwing himself off the tiny mountain.
