Hello. I've been trying to ID this song for a year now. I don't know any of the words. The sax refrain is really the most compelling part, so I thought I'd post here. The verses are low-key, male singer, a bit moody - a little like the verses for, say, Foreigner's "I've Been Waiting for a Girl Like You" (kind of underwhelming). Then the sax kicks in, and it's cheesy and awesome all at the same time. I feel like it's been in a movie or on TV ... an episode of Miami Vice, maybe? It would fit alongside Phil Collins's "In the Air Tonight". I can't even figure out the melody, but here's a crude sketch of the sax part's rhythm and general rise and fall of the melody:
[repeat, but melody doesn't rise quite as high on 2nd pass]
I'm not even totally sure the first two notes are pick up notes. Maybe it starts on the one. But that first high note definitely holds the punch in the melody. I realize this is a long shot, but I would love any help. Thanks!
