I just heard this instrumental on one of Larry Grogan's "Funky 16 Corners" podcasts.  And I'm thinking "damn, where do I know that melody from?"  It finally came to me, but see if you can recognize it -- it turned up in a '90s alt-rock hit but the instrumental is from the '60s or '70s!

Nope -- '90s alt rock hit that's a 10@10 frequent-flier in whatever year it's from.

Just heard Larry Grogan play the above instrumental again and realized no one ever got the answer to this question. Click the YouTube link and listen and tell me what '90s alt-rock hit totally copped that melody.

I wouldn't have ever thought of it if you hadn't said, but now I can hear it.
