Subject: 80s synth arpeggio-based ostinato during intro and chorus
Hi there. I heard a song on the radio a couple of years ago and the main keyboard riff got stuck in my head and is the only thing I remember about it.

80s synthy pop song, I believe a male vocalist. I'm playing it here from memory and with more of a synth brass patch, but the actual patch/tone was more like a windy percussive sound, if that makes sense.

I might be off on a few notes and I'm not sure I'm in the right key signature, but I think it's close enough to identify.

Anyway, if anyone knows what it is I'd be very grateful. Thanks! :)

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.
