"When you found the name of the song that eluded you for years."


  

          

Man, it's such a good feeling when you finally find that song or album where the name of it and the name of the artist that created it eluded you for years. Tonight, I finally found out who made the song that I've been searching for since God knows when. It's Donald fagen's "New Frontier":

I always remembered the fifties themed video with the couple and I always remembered there was animation contained in it. I even remembered the melody of the song and I remembered how I used to see the video on TBS' "Night Tracks" back in the day. However, the name of the artist and the song always escaped me and I tried hard to find the song. I was on that Quirkz; straight beating my head in trying to find it.

Tonight, while on the phone waiting for IT to answer, I heard it playing during the hold. Messed around and used the song ID app on my phone to catch the song and ended up being directed to the video via YouTube. Man, those of you who can relate gotta know how elated I am right now. I wanted to ask about the song on here for the longest but I couldn't remember any lyrics, at all. Posting "♫ ♪ la la la, dah dah daaaa-aaah daaaaahhh ♪♫" wouldn't have conveyed the melody, so I fell back.

Anyhoo, what forgotten songs have any of you finally found by accident and how did you find them? Post YouTubes of 'em if you can.
