Alright so if I can I’ll put a video of me playing it on the piano (if I can PM a video I’ll do that too) but this song’s melody has been stuck in my head for a decade!! I think it came out in the 80s and I can’t remember any of the lyrics. Here are the notes from the chorus.

D-D C B B C D C G G G G♯ G♯ A B A


Here is the link to the melody: https://imgur.com/a/sHb29Gn
It’s just me playing it on the piano and it is the melody of the vocals.

Sorry that doesn't help at all. Is it fast, slow, male voices, female voices?

It’s literally the tune of the song. Male voice
If you don’t know it you don’t know it

Random stab in the dark - Gold by Spandau Ballet?
It might just be the piano making me think of that though...
I can usually name any 80s song from a few notes - as long as they are the right notes!

I’m not sure - this was like 12 years ago so I don’t remember much but the tune should give away most of it. It just sounded like any other song from the 70s-90s. I thought it was the Bee Gees at first but I don’t think it is

Haha no - but thanks for the suggestion. The tune from the video is exactly the tune from the song I’m looking for

Are you in the right key? If so it sounds a bit like Mad World by Tears for Fears

But you may be thinking of the Gary Jules version.

Do you remember anything about how it was sung?
Are those notes following the lyrical melody?
Deep voice or high?
Any other details ?

If I can compare the style to a band it would be the Bee Gees, the notes are following the lyrical melody and it’s relatively high. The tempo is pretty much the same as in the video
