Songs that everyone knows but no one knows the name of.

You've heard it a million times....
This thread is magnificent. Not in just the music I get to re-hear all over again, but also for the fact that it is quite telling who the faggot disco pollocks are and the people with real music appreciation.
First good one in this thread. Nice job ya fuckin nigger
The "Mother of the MP3"
An article in the now defunct magazine Business 2.0 revealed that "Tom's Diner" was also used by Karlheinz Brandenburg to develop the audio compression scheme known as MP3 at what is now the Fraunhofer Society. He recalled:
I was ready to fine-tune my compression algorithm...somewhere down the corridor, a radio was playing "Tom's Diner." I was electrified. I knew it would be nearly impossible to compress this warm a cappella voice.
In a 2009 documentary about the history of the song by Swedish SVT, Brandenburg said:
I was finishing my PhD thesis, and then I was reading some hi-fi magazine and found that they had used this song to test loudspeakers. I said "OK, let's test what this song does to my sound system, to mp3". And the result was, at bit rates where everything else sounded quite nice, Suzanne Vega's voice sounded horrible.
Brandenburg adopted the song for testing purposes, listening to it again and again each time he refined the scheme, making sure it did not adversely affect the subtlety of Vega's voice. While the MP3 compression format is not specifically tuned to play the song "Tom's Diner" (an assortment of critically analyzed material was involved in the design of the codec over many years), among audio engineers this anecdote has earned Vega the informal title "The Mother of the MP3".
Mfw people use limewire still even though youtube-mp3 is easier and not crammed with possible malware.
Classic Rock fans of any age ought to know damn well what that song is.
However, I can see a lot of people who don't learn song titles might be like "OH I KNOW THIS! IT'S THE SONG WITHOUT WORDS!"
took me a long time to find out the name of it, just got lucky on the radio one day driving down the hwy and the dj said the name of the song after it. strange how I can still remember where I was and that was over 10 years ago

Right in my childhood. This and the original. I even had the CD to the first one along with a copy of the Japanese, De La Jet Set Radio. I think I actually still have that stuff too.

Everyone should know this. I've seen way too many people who don't actually know the song name nor its band.
