Hi everybody

Sorry for the vague title and thread - very frustratingly I've got a smooth classical tune going round in my head for the past few days that I know is very famous and I'm pretty sure I've heard it on a movie soundtrack recently too.

I think that it's a tune from the 1950-1960s, and its the sort of thing that Percy Faith and his orchestra might have played (but I'm pretty sure that it's not him).

I've dummied up what I think are at least some of the notes (the Bb-Eb-D-C pattern) here on the 'Piano in Blue' Kontakt library and added some drum sweeps from Addictive Drums:

(mp3 - 3MB)

Sorry for the lousy playing and dubious re-interpretation :oops:

If anyone does recognise the tune from that repeated Bb-Eb-D-C pattern, I'd be very grateful as I'd then be able to go out and buy the song instead of it teasing me forever more.

Many thanks in advance.

Doug :)

First I thought it was The Beatles' "And I love her", but then you kept doing the same thing over plus the squiggles on top... No chord progression to help us?

Hi Hovmod and Ogg Vorbis

Many thanks for your replies, and sorry again for the vagueness - I wish I could remember more of the song or any chord progression but I've just got that small snippet going round in my head :oops:
It does indeed sound a bit like 'And I Love Her', but sadly I don't think it is The Beatles - it's more an instrumental waltzy orchestral type tune (which is what I meant by classical Ogg, sorry).

It's probably going to be impossible for anyone to get that tune just from the small Bb-Eb-D-C pattern, so sorry for the randomness :hihi:

It's still haunting me (though hopefully I'll either remember more of it / remember its name in a few more days' time, or just forget it!).


Still, I might as well ask the question to you nice people - have you ever had a tune haunt you for a few days which you just can't remember the name of?

Many thanks again.
