It's been a very long time (ie. several years) since I last listened to "Trepass" by Genesis. When I got to the track "Stagnation", I heard at the end a theme which struck me as very familiar. Here it is:

Attached File  stag_frag.mp3 ( 175.05K ) Number of downloads: 222

I am convinced I have heard this exact same theme used somewhere else, but played on electric guitar, and am now wracking my brains to try and figure out where. It's not important, of course - it's just bugging me. Can anyone help?

That does have a familiar sound to it. I can't place it or think of anything it may have been jacked from, but it's possible that it's just that sort of tune that gives one a bit of déjà vu. (...or maybe it was borrowed and somebody else knows from whence. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.)

Given that Trespass was released in 1970, and the guitar theme going round in my head sounds much more recent, my feeling is that someone else stole the theme from Trespass, not the other way round.

Or perhaps it's a motif from classical music that rock bands have ripped off on multiple occasions?

Wow, that does sound familiar...but I can't place it either. I assume MusicBrainz/Picard didn't come up with anything?
