The chorus is a bunch of "duh-duh-duh-duh". I'm not sure of the key or the timing on the rest of the song, so I just put it in G. I think the timing is 2/2.... It sounds a bit monotone at times...

Female singer. US or possibly UK. 90s. Pop.

Here's the every good boy does fine notation: The note timing isn't quite right, but let's just say these are all eighth notes (b's are notes, but flat notes).

--------|--------|--------|--------|--
        |        |        |        |
----b-o-|---bo---|o-------|--------|--
        |        |  o   o |  o o   |
--b-----|--b-----|----b---|b- b----|--
        |        |        |        |
o-------|o-------|--------|--------|--
        |        |        |        |
--------|--------|--------|--------|--

At each note, the song includes a "duh" in the same pitch.

I'm going to guess this is Susanne Vega's quirky hit Tom's Diner, which became a global sensation when it was remixed in 1990. It has the general outline of your melody, if not the exact notes. I think the chorus is more usually transcribed as "doo doo doo doo", but honestly, your "duh duh duh duh" is probably closer to how it actually sounds.

Timeframe is a match, and the singer is indeed a female American vocalist.

  • Yeah, my ear is mediocre at best, and I was transcribing from memory. I tried googling "duh duh duh duh" but you can imagine the search soup that that returned. :) – Scott Jan 14 '19 at 15:07

    Well, at least the next person who googles "duh duh duh duh" will end up here :) My first thought was Eiffel 65's "Blue" but that's not as good a match. :) Interestingly enough, we've had at least one other question reference this song. – Chris Sunami supports Monica Jan 14 '19 at 15:13

It may be the Kylie Minogue song "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" , circa 2001.

It hit number 1 in Aus and UK

    That's a different song. The question already has an accepted correct answer. – PiedPiper Oct 15 '19 at 22:05

    Pretty sure AC/DC have never had a female vocalist which seems to be a fairly central part of the question. – PeterJ Jul 5 '19 at 9:53
