    I got an answer right away in a country newsgroup. It's called "Back
    On My Mind Again" by Ronnie Milsap (can't believe I actually got that
    part right). Here's a YouTube link for the curious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne_lq4wwOu8
    I think the writer may have been aware of the similarities because he
    makes some seaside type references in the lyrics: "I came out of my
    shell" and "building castles in the sand". Kind of funny.
    Thanks to everybody who tried to help.
    As for humming on YouTube, there's a tune to an old ad from the 60s or
    70s I've been trying to remember forever, maybe I could try that on
    there. NO ONE remembers what it's from, I think it may have been a
    cigarette ad. The lyrics went:
    "La la la la, la la la la. La la la la la la la la, la la la la la,
    la la"

    The country song that sounds like Beatle’s Octopus’Garden is Ronny Millsap’s Back On My Mind Again written in ‘78. Beatles song written in ‘69.

    I hear the similarity for sure. Only 'Octopus' Garden' has more charm and a better arrangement.
