Help IDing early or mid-80s pop/soft rock song?    02:09 on Thursday, March 01, 2007 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

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:

4 - - + - - - 1 - - - - - - 2 - - - - - + - - 4 - - - +
bah - dum - BAAAAA - dum ----- duh-dum-dum
[low] ------- [high] --------------- [mid]

[1 meas. pause]

[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!

-Michael

Why don't you try pecking it out on a piano and give us some NOTES to work with?
