If I may jump in on this, my first thought was "Julia". Of course it all depends on your definition of 'basically 1-note'. 8-)

Mark & Stuart,

Good guesses, but not the song! Actually, ALL the verses are "basically" one note!

Clue: The verse melody starts on the major third of the first chord.

That's IT! --- NOT! :mrgreen:

Alright, the first 3 bars of the verse are one note, a major 3rd of the first chord. All are quarter notes. The last note of bar 3 goes up a minor 3rd.

Ern :?: :?: :D

Now, that would work! I'm thinking of a Lennon song. It was a big hit.
