It would help if you knew an approximate year and what country you think it's from.

Subject: 3 years later: What the hex's that song???
I need urgent help here.

There's this extremely funky song which I heard on the radio about 3 years ago. I can't tell how old it is exactly. The main chorus bit had a synth sound that (assume the key is C) sounded like this:

In 16ths: / - - Bb Bb/ Bb Bb Bb Bb/Bb Bb Bb Bb/Bb Bb Bb Bb /
/C - - C / - - - -/C - - C / - - - -/
/ - - Bb Bb/ Bb Bb Bb Bb/Bb Bb Bb Bb/Bb Bb Bb Bb /
/C - - C / - - - -/C - - C / - - - -/

Again and again.
All those Bbs up to the C started out very quiet, and got louder and louder until they hit the C.
The only lyric I remember is 'Sex', which isn't very helpful I know, but it just adds extra hints.
I know nobody is going to be able to help me here. Just please help me!

 search Musipedia for this

That is the melody thingy.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
