While driving on Highway 101 in San Francisco on a beautiful blue day, I turned the radio on and heard a fantastic song that I wanted to get. Love it. Now, get it.
The problem: I was driving alone, so I couldn’t use anything like Shazam or Soudhound to recognize it! Even worse, by the time I exited the freeway, the song was done. Now what?
All I remembered of the song was the lyric:
“...the invisible power of the hidden hand of fate.”
Even more puzzlingly, part of the song was in a language I don’t understand. It wasn’t Spanish, German, French, Italian, or any of the “obvious” languages.
Can you help me figure this out? (This really is enough information for you to do a search for it.) In particular….
1. What’s the name of the song?
2. What language are they singing in? (And what does the lyric mean?)
3. I’d really like to see this band perform. Will they play somewhere near me sometime in 2014? If so, where? (For this purpose, any venue in the San Francisco bay area will do.)
Tell us HOW you found the song! (And how long it took you...)
