    This driving me nuts!

    There is a song I like very much and I know I have in in my music file but I can't remember the name of it.

    I am hoping that someone in her might be able to help me.

    The song is about an old sailor/fisherman that lives in Amsterdam and his wife looks after him. He is going senile and she tells of his thoughts as he watches the boats go by.

    Thanks

    I assume you have a lot of music files that makes it nearly impossible or very tedious to go through all of them?

    If I told you how many .mp3's I have the cops would be here in 2 minutes and I would be locked up for life. :)
    It is sooooooooooo frustrating!

    Can we assume you downloaded the song then? If that's the case, it might have an ID3 tag where you can search for the keywords you supplied in describing the song above. A long shot but possibly worth a go.

    Do you remember any lyrics from the song? A line will be far easier to search for than the description.

    If all else fails, you could use something like Midomi to hum the tune or Bored.com to tap it out. :whistle:
