It's been a very long time (ie. several years) since I last listened to "Trepass" by Genesis. When I got to the track "Stagnation", I heard at the end a theme which struck me as very familiar. Here it is:

Attached File  stag_frag.mp3 ( 175.05K ) Number of downloads: 239

I am convinced I have heard this exact same theme used somewhere else, but played on electric guitar, and am now wracking my brains to try and figure out where. It's not important, of course - it's just bugging me. Can anyone help?

MusicBrainz is a database of metadata; Picard is its associated tagger, complete with an acoustic matching algorithm.

I was curious to try out the online melody search engines. Pop music is not at all my area, but I can play the melody on a virtual keyboard, like on www.musipedia.org and see what comes out.

Best match seems to be Mott the Hoople (David Bowie): All the young dudes

Could that be it ?
