"IMO, Downtown is average. Petula Clark has recorded much better songs than that two note anthem;-)
I should add that I'm not a big fan of Tony Hatch(et)although he has penned some decent music."

That "two note anthem" has at least 9 notes the way Petula sings it. Not a lot, but there are plenty of good songs with only 9 notes.
