Need Help Finding A Song That Played On Stingray Music

Heard a song on Stingray Music while I was at restaurant yesterday (June 02) afternoon between 2:30PM-3:44PM Pacific Time. It was 80's sounding. Is there anywhere I can find a playlist at all?

Tried asking Stingray on Faceback but said they couldn't tell me due to overwhelming requests.

Stingray is all set up totally different now with Shaw. Last time I listened on-line 1-2 yrs logged on with all the music type channels and playlists posted. It's totally different set up. There's no way for me to check as App doesn't work on laptop.

Remember any lyrics? Gender who sings it? Any other specifics of the song?

If you hear it often and have a cell phone. Just use Shazaam. It names the vast majority of the songs even Canadian artists.

I can't recall anything about the song. Heard it before but not in along time. Don't own cell/smart phone i'm not kidding.

Since you can't give any specifics of the song. I suggest contacting Stingray at musicsupport@stingray.com

Just email them. You might get a different response. If not, you are SOL until you hear it again and have a cell phone or someone with you have a cell phone to get the song info. The only people other then Stingray that can help you are people in the restaurant where you heard the song as different restaurants use different music channels.

Stingray no longer has the playlists on their regular website. However, if you have their app on a tablet, the last 25 or so songs are available there under channel settings or something like that - the 3 dots on the right side of the channel under channels, then select standard programming (or similar). If you have an app, you can then enable the new Stingray web player and they have similar information on that site - say the past 25 songs.

Just keep listening to the same station. Don't know what their current playlist cycle is but it will probably be on again in a few hours or during the next few days.

Tried asking them on twitter but all they replied with is steps reviewing last 24 hrs and installing the app. App won't install because my laptop is non-Android device. Once again, I don't have a mobile.

Like 57 mentioned Stingray doesn't post playlists on their website anymore like they used too. I tried asking the restaurant but they don't have any playlists from yesterday and they also play a few different Stingray music channels throughout the day. Only thing I can do is try watching Stingray channels. Last time I accessed Stingray 1-2 yrs ago via shaw there wasn't app at all. Just logged in and that was it.

The only way to get Stingray on a computer browser now is to first have an app installed on a tablet or phone. You then get an authentication code which you can use to enable the web version on your computer browser. I believe that authorization is good for 6 months (just like on a mobile device) before it needs re-authenticating.

The authentication for a mobile device, like a tablet or phone, is done by holding the device near a speaker playing Stingray music in the subscriber's home.

For some reason I can't quote posts. Stingray never used to be like that. No idea why they changed it with app. It was fine the way it was before. Not everyone owns mobile/tablet or has Android device. Shaw are real gems too with someone telling me I can still listen without app. Just make Stingray account. App must be installed. Period.

Emailed Stingray but they didn't bother to respond at all. A real bunch of class acts. I didn't realize asking what songs that were played at certain date/time was asking too much. Why they no longer posts playlists on their website is another real head scratcher.

I've been watching Stingray 80's TV channel but so far the song hasn't played again. Oh well. I've had it with all this ***** and total non-sense. Zero **** given by companies. What else is new.

I've always found Stingray quite responsive to my queries, but I guess it depends on the question. The website changed because they want to be dealing with actual customers, not just random people. I also found it a bit annoying at first too, but I understand why corporations make these sorts of changes and activated the web-version using my iPad.

Although they still exist, there are not that many people who don't have either a smartphone or tablet...

It was 80's sounding.
I believe it is from the 1980s. I remember hearing it from about that era.
