    Arghhh this is driving me mad!! Name that tune!

    Ok, I've had this tune got stuck in my head the last couple of weeks...
    Everyone that hears me whistle it recognizes it, but no-one knows from where!

    No lyrics, just the tune, I think it was originally whistled:

    tadatata taaaaaaaaaaa tadata taaaaaaaaaaaa tadata ta-ta-tadada
    tadatata taaaaaaaaaaa tadata taaaaaaaaaaaa tadata ta-tada

    Am I even making sense here...man I'm losing it...I'm whistling it all day long...like some kind of rainman...

    Just whistle it...and for the love of God...please tell where it's from...
    I'm actually considering recording myself whistling/humming it if no-one knows...but since I'm pretty much tone-deaf it won't help a whole lot

    Could you record it into a microphone or something? A few characters is really not enough.

    Hehe, that's what I thought...I was so desperate though that I had to try...

    I do recall something of on older man and young boy whistling it together, taking turns...

    I'm gonna try to record it tomorrow if no-one can tell me what it is.

    Haha, kinda hard with the only mic available being the one in my laptop...
    My manager is working in the same office today and is sitting right in front of me and if I start humming to my computer I'm gonna lose the last bit of credibility I have

    Tomorrow I'll be all alone again hehe...

    The last few bars sound like 'Shaddup your face'. The first few don't.

    Sounds like you break into the Andy Griffith Theme at the end there.

    yep, that is my theme song alright

    me and pa walking along on our fishing trip.



    Everyone is right, its the tune for the andy griffith show. its a coincidence that i just became active again on the boards because the son on the show is named opie. that is where i got my nick. when i was a young kid, i looked just like him.
    I may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but I am a pretty color.

    So we all post a few verses of us singing a so and we all vote on who was the best :-) the winner gets a cuddely teddy bear courtesy of Google

    Yes!! Finally...that's the one! Thanks guys!
    Hahaha I've got it on loop in my media player at work for the last 10 minutes...it's official now...I've gone mad!

    Now look at my first post again and tell me it doesn't make sense!!

    The good news is that I now know which song it is...the bad news is that I don't know where I've heard it!!!
    It's definately not the Andy Griffith Show, because I've never seen it or heard it before in my life...
    Might have been re-used in a commercial or movie or something recently??
