    So a family member had this song in his playlist that he sent home while he was over in Iraq, and I've been trying to track it down for years, but the problem is, I can't remember the name of it, or any of the lyrics.

    All I remember that in it, the guy was talking about how some other person tried to be there for him, but it all takes a really pretty sad and dark turn. But the part that I remember most is at the end of the song, there's the sound of what I'm assuming is the character's mother talking as if from an old home movie, and as she's calling his name, the sound slows down and repeats it over and over like an old tape slowly coming to a stop.

    I know it's not much, but is this familiar to anyone? :csad:

    let's help narrow this down further

    male singer you said correct?

    what possible genre(s) could it be? that way we can narrow all the types of music it is not out of the way

    remember any lines or words from it?

    Definitely male, and it's in the same vein as skidrow or Sum 41 (other groups he had on his playlist).

    The worst part is, after thinking about it non-stop, I'm starting to remember the music itself but can't remember a single line clearly enough to google...

    I just really remember how haunting the last sound bit was of the mother from the home movie calling his name like it was better times, and repeating that bit over and over on a loop, slowing down like the battery in the tape recorder was dying.
