This reggae song was a big hit in the 80's-90's, but I can't recollect the title nor the name of the band - I thought it was played by the UB40 but I can't find it on any big tunes form this band (checked LastFM and more).

I'm using dots "..." to indicate duration (very approximate) and underline for downward intervals (obviously no underline = note goes up or unchanged if repeated):

C.........C..C..G..........G..G..C.Bb.C.Bb..........Bb..Bb..F..........

btw: this is the intro/solo played originally on a sax (or very similar sound)...I'm sure some would recognize it by only this few bunch of notes...if not I'll add the sung melody.

That's definitely it but I thought it started on an A.
