I KNEW IT!

I used to know loads of Beatles, I had piano lessons as a kid but got very bored of dainty classical pieces and trying to work up the grade system so quit. Then I got the sheet music for the Beatles blue album in a big book and just worked through it.
or Danses de Travers no. 1
(or the 'Hovis' music, as I thought it was called)
Normally very badly.
Also playing it very badly.
I can also do a passable Motion Picture Soundtrack.
sounds good on a piano
It's about the only thing I can actually play properly
Only the very first part of the melody and only because it's the only damn bit of music that somehow managed to lodge itself into my long term memory.
I could play a ton of other stuff almost passably but always needed the music in front of me. As I discovered a few years back when I did the classic mid twenties "maybe I'll pick up piano again" thing learning a piece was horribly attritional for me and hence not as fun as it could be. Mid twenties me had less patience/parental "encouragement" so gave it up quick smart!
No idea what tune tho'!
