This happened to me recently.
I just kept hearing this riff in my head and it was driving me nuts. Many of my coworkers are musician hobbyists who play in cover bands so I turned to one of them and sang the riff.
dheere dheere dheere dheere dheere,,right but with pretty accurate notes. He couldn't place it either.
So I ask google "Google name this song"... I sing the riff again and google pops up a result of a traditional Punjabi Wedding Song titled Dheere Dheere.
I was laughing so hard several people checked on me cause I was just weak ya'll. My "guitar sound effect" was perfectly translated by google into the words, Dheere Dheere.
Finally I figured out that the song was The Bangles cover of Simon and Garfunkles "Hazy Shade of Winter".
I laughed so hard my whole face hurt.
