Can anyone identify this tune?

This is a popular tune my whole family can play on the piano, but nobody knows what it is.

I don't have it but there's an app called Sound Hound that might identify it.

DH and his extended family plays random unidentified piano music sometimes, so post what this song is when you find out and I'll see if he plays it too.

Sound Hound says "There were no close matches."

Yes I should have said this but SoundHound and Track ID could not identify it.

Not much help, but I recognize it too (as a 35 year old European).

So it has to be quite universal and used in film.

I think Nodak nailed it. We banged that tune out on the piano and knew all the words (via my mother) to Music, Music, Music. Very familiar tune.

I remembered where I heard it, this is slightly embarassing:

The Muppet show, this bit:




.. and Muppet Wikia also lists Down at Papa Joe's:

After listening again I think the Down at Papa Joe's is right. Just subtle differences from my suggestion.

Wow, you called it wrong for a long time. Who would have guessed that an early retirement forum would have set you straight on this?

At first I thought was "Music, Music, Music". Now I'm thinking it's "Down at Papa Joes". "Music" was recorded in 1953, "Papa" was recorded in 1963 (as per Google). So, if you can figure it out using dates and/or your age when you approximately first heard it, maybe you will have your answer.

Thanks for all the replies! I think Down At Papa Joes is the song. I also never realized how similar Music, Music, Music is to the tune. Not sure when I first heard it. It was just one of those tunes someone taught me to play on the piano.
As a side note, it is amazing the number of music lovers on this site. It seems like many people interested in early retirement also love music.
