    For the past few weeks I had a short section of a musical score stuck in my head, and I couldn't place it. I finally figured out that it was the music from this scene:

    Disney -Rescuers Down Under

    Arrath, your movie sounds a lot like I movie I've been trying to figure out for years. I think I saw it in the early 90s. Definitely live action. There was a witch (it might have been a guy) sucking life force from a river and turning the river to mud or something. He/she was thwarted by a young kid and a group of 3 to 4 things that might have looked something like the robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000. There may have been a promotional tie-in with a candy company, getting the Mystery Science Theater robots to appear on bags of candy. I don't think it was Warriors of Virtue.

    Also, there is a game I played years ago, I think on the NES. It involved navigating a speedboat through a jungle and going over waterfalls. It wasn't Cobra Triangle. I think you viewed the action from an angle so you could move in four directions and also jump. The river itself always was always drawn horizontally on the screen. Again, it wasn't Cobra Triangle.

    I think you're thinking of The Last Halloween. A made for TV movie that had bad CGI aliens helping a couple of kids out. Candy was involved. Also skipping stones.

    What's the name of that song they play during the Lexus commercials? All I can ever pull out of the lyrics is "4... 3... 2... 1..." which is surprisingly difficult to Google for good results.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyFe5m2MU9Q&feature=avmsc2

    I've never seen the commercial but I spent ten seconds on google. Is this the one?

    That's it, thanks!

    I guess I Google'd the wrong things? I did variations of "lyrics four three two one" and got a bunch of unrelated songs.

    Perhaps my Google-fu is merely weak.

    When I first heard that song, I did a search to the effect of "Lexus commercial song". It took a bit of effort to find it, so don't despair!

    Okay this is gonna be hard unless you guys know anything about Chinese music.

    A few years ago I had this chinese friend, and she showed me this song. All I remember about the video is it had this guy playing the piano, and it was very sad and pretty long, and his girlfriend died at the end

    It was a beautiful song, and I know it was a song and not an insurance commercial.

    Any help?

    This movie has the around the same style as The Hunchback of Notre Dame movie (animated of course). I saw it a while ago, could be as much as 8-10 years ago. I remember bits and pieces from the movie and hopefully that will help. Description:

    The story happens Medieval times (or something along those lines) in a town. It starts off with a look at a past event. A jester (or a robber disguised as jester) is running from a mob. What the jester did, and this is probably revealed later in the movie, is that he stole a pouch of gold from a king or lord. Anyway, the jester and the mob stops on a bridge. The jester takes out an instrument that has a crank (I don't know if links to deviantart are allowed, but if they are, I believe the instrument looks like what the guy in this drawing is holding: http://zubby.deviantart.com/art/Zork-Organ-Grinder-131221038 ). Suddenly, the mob starts dancing uncontrollably. After that, something terrible happens (like the bridge breaks down or something) and both the mob and the jester die (I think we only see them plunging to their deaths, the king/lord was part of the mob too I think). Several years past and we come to the current timeline. I only remember parts of the movie after that. The main protagonist of the story is, I believe, a young man. Another important character is his father or grandfather (most likely the latter, he looked old) who is a clockmaker (really not sure about that one) or repairs something like that. One important thing about him is that he has this huge instrument or machine (I'm incline to think it's an organ, but I don't remember him playing on a keyboard of any sort, plus as you'll see, it has a huge crank). When he starts playing the instrument/machine, the ghost of the people who died on the bridge appear on the new bridge (at first, they're all identical as they are all wearing black cloaks). Later in the movie, the grandfather/father finds a huge crank on the instrument. I clearly remember him making a strenuous effort to turn the big crank (with both hands) at some point in the movie. When he plays it with the big crank, the ghosts on the bridge become even more real. You can distinguish each one of them dancing and singing. Also, at some point, the pouch of gold comes out of the instrument and the grandfather uses it to pay a tax collector or a debt of his. I think the guy that takes the money comes several times to him demanding the money in the movie.

    Okay, here's something that has been driving me crazy for what feels like years

    I've got this theme song in my head, and I've searched around for the source, but I can't find it and I can't remember if it was a part of a larger show or a video game or what

    All I remember is that it goes

    Commander Quark
    Commander Quark
    dun dun DUN DUN Commander Quark
    Commander Quark
    dun dun DUN DUN Commander Quark

    I realize that musical tone is hard to communicate through text but someone has to have heard this shit before!
    it's Commander Cork
    it had one pilot on Cartoon Network, and it was a parody of sci-fi stuff
    he had a silly chimp and a rocket ship, and two kid sidekicks

    I just stumbled upon the answer to this mystery by accident after YEARS of searching. The game was Town & Country II: Thrilla's Surfari. I could never find it because I was searching for an NES game involving a boat, but the levels I was thinking of actually involved surfing.
