The AI Name that Tune Thread!

post #1 of 117
Thread Starter 
Here's how it works:

1. Hunt through your vast MP3 collection and find a suitable track.

2. Open the track in
<a href="http://www.apple.com/quicktime" target="_blank">QuickTime</a> and select a five-second segment.

3. Save the five-second clip in a suitable format (.mov, .mp3, etc.) and upload it to your <a href="http://www.apple.com/itools" target="_blank">iDisk</a> or alternative web space.

4. Post a link here and see who can Name that Tune first!!

5. Smack Jamie around the head until he stops using that really annoying game show voice.

Ok so here's the first (and hopefully not last) track:

<a href="http://www.jamiemarshall.co.uk/AINtT001" target="_blank">Click to play!</a> (106k)

I'm pretty sure you're wrong groverat. Right band though.

Jamie, it's Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

CosmoNut got the band but the wrong song, like you did groverat.

It's Warning by Green Day.

Does generic Euro-Trash cut it?

If I had a way to clip out a 10 second clip, I'd stump you all.

Here are my entries. They are *so* obscure, I've given you 10 second clips, and from the first song I'll give you two clips.

<a href="http://homepage.mac.com/starfleet/.Music/song1-2.mov" target="_blank">Song 1, clip 2</a>

If you can ID these, you are a certifiable loon like myself.

They all sound like they're from the same group, band or whatever. Given that it does seem to be metal cheese, I should know, but I don't. Do you hav QT Pro, or how is everyone extracting here?

And, yes, QuickTime Pro is a Good Thing.

Paul, the middle one is Pearl Jam - Betterman

[edit]

I'm thinking Allman Brothers for one more up there, but I can't pinpoint the song.

Let's not get too obscure/old.

Jeez. I should know these as I was (once) (alright - still) an adherent of everything metal, but I do not. Some of it sounds like its out of the Shrapnel catalogue, especially clip 4 (like Tony MacAlpine updated). The first one is out of my league. It sounds like Story or Epic Metal to me. Could you give me any hints? I hope its not somebody like Marillion...

Have you tried just letting IE play them?
They're just mp3s. QT should play them fine. If not, try iTunes.
