Recently I've been searching for mountain biking videos and when I discovered this one I feel in love with the song. Only problem is no one seems to know who it is. I even contacted the maker of the slideshow and he claims he doesn't know who it is either!

So if any of you do know I would GREATLY appreciate it :)

I can't discern the song here at work because the audio on our PC's is awful, but whenever I am wondering a song I use this Google search:

+"drove my Chevy to the levee" +lyrics

You need to include the plus signs (+) as well as the quotes around the phrase. So just listen to the song and select a phrase that is kind of unique (That means don't bother with phrases like "I love you so" or anything that you might have heard a million times.) - put it in quotes and a plus sign, then plus sign and the word lyrics and that should at least narrow down the song.

If more than one artist did the song, then go to Amazon and search for that song, and then sample the different artists that come up.

The Google search thing usually works. In this case, "Sitting on a mountain, meditating, thinking about who this, what that" +lyrics isn't working. I've tried it for the other lyrics as well with no luck.

Firefox or IE? Thats odd cuz it works on either for me...

Either way I've posted this song on 5 seperate forums and one of them was an urban hip hop and R&B and no one seems to know it... So frustrating.

Do you know whether it's a recent track - or might it be years old?

Have you approached a local radio station to see if anyone there can help?
