My question is about the opening bar to this song (starting at second :20 in the video):
I've transcribed it here:
(in a more reasonable key signature):
I have heard this song a zillion times, but for the life of me I can never sing it from memory. Is there something unique or odd about the run that makes it hard to remember? I imagine if I put my mind to it I'll be able to firmly place it in my memory, but most other songs don't take that kind of effort, it seems, and I wonder if this is just a strange tune.
