What's That Song!?

edited May 2017 in Other Music
There is a tune that gets played on the house speakers before every show on a pre-show playlist that someone in PJ's camp plays. I tried to Shazam it when it was played before Temple Of The Dog in Philly but it wouldn't register.

I'm not talking about their intro/walk-on music, I mean just regular music playing in the venue before the show starts. I can't even explain it, but if there's any stand out tracks that people remember hearing before the show and they can name them or provide a youtube clip, I'd really appreciate it. I've heard it at several shows over the past few years.

If I had to guess, It sounds pre-2000. but that's not much help. There is also some high pitch instrument like a xylophone or something in the chorus. Long shot...Thanks in advance.

    This has got to be the most difficult "what's that song I've ever played" and really has my curiosity peaked.  I've only been to one PJ show so unfortunately, I can't be of much help except to say...

    Bump!

    I feel like this has been asked before on the main forum. I feel like the answer is on the tip of my tongue but I can't get it out. Sorry. I swear to god if I'm still awake at 4am thinking of this...we will have words.

    only song i remember them playing at the temple of the dog show (I was at the philly show as well) was Elbow "Neat Little Rows".  I do remember it being played before the Pearl Jam shows as well.  When it came on at the ToTD show I was like cool they're playing it here as well.  Fan of the band/music.
