    Search help for a piece of music

    I have been looking for a particular piece of music for several years. It used to be played on my local "smooth jazz" station in the mid to late 90's. I don't remember the name or the artist. I do remember the song and it has been running through my mind for ages. It is upbeat. It is instrumental with no lyrics. It sort of sounds like steel can, caribbean instruments but I think it's more electronic. No guitars or saxes or trumpets. Has sort of a latin rhythm or feel.

    My memory says the title has "fountain", "waterfall", "midnight", or "Venice" in the title.

    I have looked in as many ways as I can think of. Searched with all the words I've listed and more. Looked through lists of artists and checked many of them.

    Does anyone have some ideas of ways to search? I suppose I could call the station and sing it to them and see if anyone recognizes it, but I would be really embarrassed to do that. Ideas would be welcomed. Thanks.

    Maybe try this? http://www.midomi.com/

    You can sing or hum a tune and it will try and match it for you.

    Thanks for the link. I don't have a microphone on my computer. Maybe I will borrow the use of a computer that has one. Thanks again.

    Have you tried googling those words then taking any titles and searching on iTunes since they let you sample songs? I know you searched but didn't know if you tried the results on iTunes.

    Just call the station and sing! It's not like they'll know who you are.

    I FOUND IT! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAwxJg7mEr8 After searching on and off for a couple of years.

    I have been sifting my memory the last few days and finally remembered something that was a good search term. Memory is such a funny thing.

    Title is Wishing Well (not fountain or waterfall)
    Album is One Night in Vienna (not midnight or Venice)

    I never would have remembered Schonherz and Scott, but I recognized the names as soon as I saw them.

    The chords that have been running through my mind are here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...xJg7mEr8#t=99s It's still running through my mind but now I know what it is. Lovely.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
