Entry into Fortnightly Topic Challenge #38: Reusing Information 1

This will also be my final Riley Riddle for a week or two because it is arriving near the end of the term and school is expecting some assessments...


Riddle me this:

My prefix is quick with but one ant alone,
Though it may start to slow down with all.

My suffix, above, has an alpha to own,
Though it will not head far with the fall.

My infix might yell with a notable tone,
Though remember not pets in its call.

As home to the third or a tool for a bone,
I will sing with the wind in a class to enthral!

What am I?

The bold letters in each paragraph give a clue to what the next paragraph is referring to, and all in the same way; the other clues are also similarly set out, even with multiple meanings, e.g.

"Yell" also refers to yellow and "sing" sounds like string.

The title is also a clue, but only has one clue in it; one clue for one song's title.
Altogether, this riddle reuses information!


Hint 1:

"Notable" also refers to notes and "class" sounds like brass.

Hint 2:

"Down" also refers to download and "alpha" sounds like far.

Hint 3:

iq = IQ.

Hint 4:

bl = bell.

    $\begingroup$ Damn, no one's answering. I guess this riddle is too hard. Have u considered putting a bounty on this? $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Oct 2 '18 at 3:16

    $\begingroup$ @KevinL oh woops. I forgot about this, with all the anagrams I've been doing. I will just keep adding hints and putting a bounty. I'll do $50$, and if nobody answers,I'll go to $100$. Some user should answer by then... but if they don't, I'll just keep doubling. Thanks for letting me know :P $\endgroup$ – Feeds Oct 2 '18 at 6:45

  • $\begingroup$ Are you looking for a song name? The answer is still a single word yes? $\endgroup$ – Dorrulf Dec 11 '18 at 18:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Dorrulf yes, and it is not a song name ;) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Dec 12 '18 at 2:08

Partial Answer:

My suffix, above, has an alpha to own,

has an 'L' far to 'O'?

Not sure...

@user477343 pls comment, thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ No, that's not it.... but you are kind of on the right track. I might have to give the prefix away for users to get the idea. I'll do that in a hint. Apologies for not commenting earlier! $\endgroup$ – Feeds Dec 12 '18 at 2:09
