    I don’t remember any lyrics, but I am hoping to learn the name of the song that started playing before 3:00pm on Feb. 22. The song was very relaxed and had nice background lyrics humming throughout the song. Thanks for any help, carry on KRUA.

    The song was at around 9:05pm on Friday the 29th. It was played two songs before Janelle Monae’s “Tightrope.” Lyrics I remember:

    “but there’s tricks when you’re spinning a yarn”
    something about “weave fact and fiction”

    Hello,

    I heard a song the morning of January 20, 2016, around 10:00-11:00 am and it was something about dogs in the lyrics and the name of the band name was an easy one to remember, maybe just two words, but I forgot. If you can let me know the name of the band and song, that would be great! The type of music was mellow, alternative. I just love the song! Thanks! Marcia.

    Howdy,

    At 1:25 of 1/9/16 a song with the chorus of something like “Take from the end (edge?) and take to the street” was played. I can’t find the title by using the lyrics and it’s driving me crazy! What song was it?

    There were two songs played between these times which i would really appreciate having the names of, google has turned up nothing so far. one of them played approximately at 3:20 and had lyrics such as “no turning back” and “i don’t want to die without feeling…” sung by a female, had a chill r&b sort of feel to it. the other song was played two songs prior to the above mentioned song, sung by what sounded like a guy, and although i liked it a lot i can’t remember specific lyrics to it any longer. I hope that is enough information, thank you!

    I heard it btw 1050 and 11pm on 27 november. In the lyrics, the female singer says “just let me go”. It is sort of a subdued dance club song style.

    Thanks!

    What’s the song that plays frequently (and did on Oct 22nd at about 11:10) that has a female singer, and I’m pretty sure she says “I want to make it spin, I want to make it sp-i-i-in” a lot. The melody and beat of the song changes several times throughout the song, and it’s got a poppy upbeat vibe. Hope this description is enough!

    This time I really did get the lyrics right but searching for them doesn’t turn up anything. The song played around or just before 12:22pm today and the guitar was really excellent, male singer, some of the lyrics I caught were “look at me what I’ve done,” thanks in advance! <3

    Hey, I heard a song I liked today (10/16) between 2 and 2:30 pm that had a male singer and had the lines “i am a werewolf; they call me monster.” I can’t find it anywhere, and it’s stuck in my head like crazy.

    There was a song today at about 3:55-3:57pm, some kind of punk with a male singer and rad guitar, kind of hard to understand. I thought I had the lyrics but I can’t find anything online, maybe there was something in there about a monkey hand? At the end I swear he said something like “from the heart, enjoy the sharks” ??

    The song before the one playing now(12:38pm woman singing in Spanish) it sounded like hip hop and the singer says take it away joey(johnny) and then breaks out in a guitar solo.
