All I know is the opening of the song. What is stuck in my head is the following notes, played on some sort of synth. (All 8th notes, / is an 8th rest).

F# F# D B / B / E / E / E G# G# A B A A A E / D / F# / F# / F# E E F# E ....

I think it repeats again after? I am not sure, but that is stuck in my head. I hope that makes sense.


It's a-ha's "Take On Me" from 1985 (the riff you quote starts at 0:20)
