What 70s song sounds like On Some Faraway Beach by Brian Eno? I know there's one out there that has the same melody as occurs at the beginning of the song.

Oh please, I hope it isn't Seger ... but that is very similar.

Fairly certain that Seger "borrowed" the melody from Eno, not the other way around. Off to google, but not sure there will be reputable sources on this.

Eagles 'Best of My Love' ?

I'm probably wrong as hell, but Eno's release was in 1974, and Seger's in 1978.

The Strangler on the issue.
