Robert Redford plays an aging horse trainer and rancher, A woman seeks his help along with her young daughter having trouble too. The woman has a crap marrage. Long story short, He heals the horse, mends the daughter, and allows the woman to make a choice. Gives them all back their life, I include the Father/ husband too.
This is a song from that movie "HORSE WHISPER" Singer-songwriter Allison Moorer was 14 years old when her father shot and killed her mother — and then himself. Moorer and her older sister, singer Shelby Lynne, were left to live with their aunt and uncle. Read it here. https://www.npr.org/2019/11/04/775990825

You got it! Figured that hint would expedite the answer.
I was fortunate enough to see Linda Ronstadt in concert sing that song near concert's end in 1976 at Pine Knob just north of Detroit. I started out with lawn seats but noticed some empty seats about 50' from center stage that were remaining vacant--took my date and and moved into those seats and watched most of the concert from up close. Andrew Gold opened the show and also played piano with Linda's main act. She was so good........and so........cute!
Craig--good work in getting full song name. At first I played the opening notes, but realized that was too easy, so opted for later. I think every kid learning guitar in the late mid late 60's played that song as fairly easy and cool!
This is a two parter. Two songs. Two bars each. Different timbres delineate each song. Each song was a "one hit wonder" --both recording acts only went Top Ten once in Billboard's Hot 100. The synth plays the first several notes of vocal melody that happens in each USA top ten hit. Each song is in its original key and octave. The songs were released between 4 and 5 years apart.
BIG CLUE: The last word of the first song's title is the first word of the second song's title.
Those last two clues are why this is a two-parter: get one song correct and the other song should be easy.
More clues to come in two days if no one cracks it.
Just for clarity: at the start, those are 4 repeated e4 notes played with legato. The second song's tempo is 20-30 bpm slower in my "take" than in the hit recording.
More clues to follow in a day or so...
