    What famous movie song has the second note one octave higher than the first note?

    Go to your piano and play any note...then play the same note an octave higher. (Or do it in your head.)

    I guarantee you'll get the song right away!

    My first thought was the 5 notes used to communicate in 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'
    but those are G, A, F (octave lower ) F, C and then B flat, C, A Flat, ( octave lower ) A flat, E flat.

    Then I thought of the 'Jaws' theme. Wrong on both counts...

    Theme to 'Star Trek' maybe?

    It's right for "Close Encounters", but not for what I'm looking for.

    Golly, Nancy...that fits the question, but it's not the song I'm looking for.

    Clair de Lune, Claude Debussy, from Oceans Eleven ? :D



    @Hal Pollner: What's the "correct" answer?

    That works, Nancy, but the one I'm looking for is "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", sung by Judy Garland in the movie "The Wizard of Oz".

    Claire de Lune is an excellent choice, however, and I respect your knowledge of the Classics!...Also "Tara's Theme" from "Gone with the Wind".

    What a musical little person you are!
