Help me identify this song!

It sounds sixties, there's a picture cover of a lady, possible asian, there may be something duplicitous about its emergence - anyway it's a catchy little song and the female vocalist descends into nonsense like 'a-gilly, n-gilly,gilly gilly, agilly, na gilly'

That's all I've got.

Could be April March

Could be 5,6,7,8s

Unless it's genuinely 60s

Anyone identify this?
60s, Dylanesque, harmonica-driven? https://voca.ro/1obPqGA5h9i4

A very short remake of "4'33"?

Someone on r/mandelaeffect has mentioned this song, The Weeknd - Blinding Lights which was released at the start of this year, but which contains a very familiar keyboard bit, and I agree with them, it seems familiar to me too.   Listen at 0:40-0:49 and 1:47-1:57.  I'm sure I've heard it in adverts/background music/jingles type stuff going back years*, but just that keyboard part, not any of the rest of the song.  Does anyone recognise what they've sampled/ripped it off from.  It's something from around the 90's/early 2000's maybe?

And it's not from Take On Me or Young Turks.  I can see why people suggest those but the keyboard bit I'm remembering is identical, not just vaguely similar, plus I don't listen to Radio 1 or anywhere that would've aired this song.

*Perhaps in one of those dance music compilation albums advertised on tv.


EDIT: Or has it featured in a lot of commercials this year, because I try to ignore commercials but it that little keyboard bit had featured in a lot of commercials really rammed down our throats ad nauseam I can see how it'd manage to worm it's way into my brain without me even noticing.

Not worth a new thread for this.

Heard on the TV the other day, some barely remembered song from the 80s with a little recurring instrumental motif which has lodged itself in my brain and won't go.

Anyone recognise this?

I can remember a bit of the vocal melody of the bridge if that helps, but this is the full on, claws-in earworm.

Thank you!  It really is!  I can honestly say that I would never have got that.

No follow-up album from Ryan Paris still, huh.  (joke - I can see on Wikipedia there are blinkin' seven of them)

Not so much "name this song" as "track down the library music".

There's a lovely fingerstyle guitar piece in the background of this video (the making of that long one-shot in series 2 of Better Call Saul):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXDxd884tmc

The reason I assume it's one of these library / royalty-free bits of music is because it crops up in other songs, e.g.
Romain & Noah - Take the First Road - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgqLlE-wOJE
Billy Blue Maguire - The Moon is Full - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlqG0gOO4F8 (warning: really shit vocals)

Here's the challenge: can anyone track down the original source of this tune?  I've had no luck.

It's called Eagle Rock, by Wes Hutchinson. He's credited as 'instrumental by' on the EP listing on Romain and Noah's Instagram page.

This can't be the source, surely? But it's an instrumental if you wanted a clean version.

Yes, it's part of Youtube's royalty-free music library (and many other similar libraries). There's a Japanese railway history channel I follow on Youtube who uses it on most of his videos.

Great sleuthing, thanks!  I went to their Instagram page, but didn't spot that detail.  I wonder if creating derivative work is allowed by the original license, and whether Jackson Browne Wes Hutchinson minds that he has people singing badly all over his original recording (and presumably profiting from it).

From the same channel:
Jincheng Zhang - Jealousy Girl (Official Music Video)

If you need to purchase my music, please contact me via my email: zjc1639834588@gmail.com to make a purchase.

1 FLAC of Jincheng Zhang - Jealousy Girl please!

I don't know what I expected when I clicked on that, but safe to say it probably wasn't what I got! I think when he started in with the rave whistle at about 1 minute I was sold.

I love the video too, it's like he's sitting there enjoying your reaction to his "song".

The sidebar reveals he has a one hour instrumental called "Condemn I Love You", dare I click this?

Edit - disappointingly it's just some pre-made (probably royalty-free) loops repeating for an hour. Looks like most of his other tracks are just the same.
