«Sounds Like a Melody» is a song by West German rock/synthpop group Alphaville, from the group’s debut album Forever Young. The single was released on May 14, 1984.

In Sweden, the song topped the very first Tracks ever on September 8, 1984.

Unlike most pop music, where song structure is focused on vocal melodies with alternating stanzas, this song also includes an 8-bar instrumental synthesizer melody which is heard once at the beginning, is followed by a verse-chorus-verse structure, and then repeats for almost 1 minute to end the song.
