Hi Sharon,
There is a free app available called 'Shazam', possibly others as well. I've used it in the past and found it to be generally good. What you do to use it is open the app on your mobile phone and then hold your mobile near to a sound source and play the piece of music. Of course this takes it that you have a mobile phone and the particular music that you want identifying. I think that there is a computer version of the app that you can attach an mp3 to for identification. I have no interests in the app software, just that I've used it in the past and found it very good. To be certain that the track name is correct, you could then do an online search on the title as given by 'Shazam' to confirm it.

Dave

Sorry the app didn't solve the mystery for you. That would mean that the tracks are not in the various libraries that Shazam searches. It might be possible to identify them with a different app. Otherwise the only other way that I can suggest is that we would need to hear the tracks, in case the audio rings any bells. I guess that these unknown tracks are all instrumental without any words that might help.
