My roommate started humming this melody and we could not figure out what it was from. I feel like it might not be from anything in particular and just a really common progression in many kinds of music but I also feel like it is a specific song. Here's the melody as recorded in garageband.

(I'm not sure if this is allowed on this exchange, if not, I apologize.)


It's been driving me nuts so if anyone can identify it I would be very grateful. Thanks!


It's not an exact match, but maybe close enough to have inspired your roommate?

The Phantom of the Opera

  • I thought the exact same thing! :D But it isn't exact, huh. I'm lead to believe he just had something like it in his head but if it is a concretely used melody it would be nice to know, too. Thank you.

  • That's what I thought. He said something about a musical so this is probably it.
