Popped into my head and isn't leaving just yet. But what a great melody. No slight on the accompaniment and lyrics, but what a tune. This could have been written by Beethoven (not the cadence, as that is really style-dependent). Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart were all masters of that same type of splitting into two parts, where repeated high notes form a melody, while the descending notes form a counter-melody. Integrating two melodies into one is something that composers these days study. I'm hoping that some of the best stuff from our time is still being done at that level, where there is still invention being done in some styles.
