    Without even seeing the other replies i'd said Daft Punk - Da Funk

    Another shout for Daft Punk here.

    Although on first listen I immediately thought of the melody from the intro and verse of Pretty Flamingo by Manfred Mann

    This is it. Don't know where Daft Punk got it from but it's this.

    It is literally identical to the opening of Free Nelson Mandela ffs! Should be the end of the thread.

    It's not the right answer though, no matter how many ffs you stick on it.

    I can see where you're coming from with that. The first 5 notes, but then Free Nelson Mandela changes. The daft punk one follows the same pattern

    The notes are, I think, yes.
    Might be a different key, but I think it would transpose almost exactly.

    It's the same tune dunno about 'the right answer' whatever that means :lol:

    It’s not I’ve just written it out. It’s different even when transposed to the same key.

    Basically the OP goes:

    A, G A G; E, D E D; C, B C B; A

    Daft Punk when transposed into the same key is:

    A, G A C; E, D E G; C, B C E; A

    Not far off but not the same.

    Why doesn't someone look up the writing credits for the song. They might help.

    I would but I don't really like the song anyway.

    Maybe cos the Op was on about the tune reminding him of something that was driving him nuts
    But then people are trying to work out where the samples from
    Two totally different concepts!

    I agree it’s a cack song anyway

    Sounds similar to one of the gatecrasher classical songs, maybe the beginning of ayla ayla but can't find a video with the intro on.

    Nice one mate

    Although I think the fact that I struggled to see any difference in those notes proves my point ;)
