I heard a funny jingle when my Dog gained the Adventurous Trait today. I'll re-listen to that video you posted earlier to see if it's the same. I don't think it was though.

To be perfectly honest, the tune sounds to me like a "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust" tune, or a "Move on" tune. Had your Sim recently Moved Over the Hill? (That's the interaction at the hospital, or something like it, to rid an Adult Sim of a MidLife Crisis, from Generations.)

No birthdays, no mid-life crisis, always at home when nothing special is going on. Unless the gnomes have their own special tune. (I know, I keep coming back to the gnomes.)

Or when you become Publicly Disgraced?

I'm almost certain it's Publicly Disgraced. I listened to Curtis Paradis' Let's Play, and Publicly Disgraced was the only thing with a Similar Tune, if not identical.
Edit: No, scratch that, I listened again and compared it to your video, Catarra - totally different, at least, the one I heard.

I think that is the tune that plays when a couple breaks up.

Edit: I found a youtude video of the breakup tune.  Does your video have the entire tune, or did you start recording partway through it?

I missed the first couple notes since the tune always catches me by surprise.

Edit: That is the same tune! But I haven't had any sims break up, and there aren't any close neighbors to be catching their break up. I may have to experiment with break ups now to see if that may be the cause.

There are a lot of videos on youtube with this tune as the break up song.  :o

Who'da thunk it?

So we know what the tune is, but what could of caused it?  I pretty sure inactive sims don't break up, and you would know if you told your sims broke up.  Maybe it was a weird glitch, like the glitch that ramdomly adds the value of your cars to your funds.

There was a stray dog on my dynasty lot that died and the music played. No one was friends with it. Grimmy came and left his headstone, so I put it in the cemetery.

Sounds familiar, so does that mean, if you are playing one household and someone in another household breaks up, you still hear the tune?  I am not sure that is possible, but you never know about these sims.  Can an inactive household have breakups?  I know when I take my sims to the park, there are other couples flirting with one another, but not sure about the breakups. ???

Whenever I get back to my dynasty...and whenever I hear the tune again, I am going to search all the surrounding area and see if I can find the source of the tune.

I know what the tune is.  Last night as I was with my horse and unicorn, the unicorn blessed my horse.  This turned him into a unicorn!  He was an elder, (just had his birthday), and I don't think unicorns are supposed to become elders.  Anyway, once he aged and was blessed, the song played and along came Grim and took away my beautiful new unicorn/horse.  So I believe the song is for when a unicorn dies.  Unicorns are not supposed to die, therefor the very sad sound of the song.

When Grim came for him, no big fanfare. No big whahahahaha.  He just stroked my uni-horse, hugged him, mounted him and flew away with a mixture of black smoke and sparkles.  It was as if Grim was asking him if it was ok for him to be Grimmie's new ride, because before Grim mounted him my uni-horse nodded yes.  I cried for hours.

What a sweet story! I teared up as I was reading it.

However, I was in a park watching a unicorn when I heard the tune. (It was the park with the ruins in Union Cove -- very pretty!). I do think it's connected to a unicorn blessing something because the unicorn pawed at the ground and bowed its head, which is when the music started.

If I ever get control of a unicorn, maybe I'll test this theory.

No, Marian, I don't think so.  I had a unicorn after befriending him and blessing anyone or anything never brought that particular tune.

My dead horse is now a ghost.  My Sim met him in the garden where he died and fed him produce, brushed him, hugged him, etc. and got those warm fuzzy teddy bear icons of friendship for both of them.  He said he was very tired so she got him a stall which he entered, made it rock and rise, and then he went poof.  Haven't seen him again yet.  I'm going to try to get him to eat ambrosia and see if he will and if he will resurrect like Sims do.

As for the unicorn, he was very sad and lonely so after a few days of being with him and loving on him I released him back to the wild.  This was the saddest thing because he said farewell and that he was going back to the home all unicorns know of and he would never see me again.  More tears for me but at least I didn't have to see him be sad and lonely and it was the best for him.  He didn't die.  They seem to lose some of their magic when they become more horse like and are attached and living with humans.  No sad song for this one.  Just a tinkly, sparkly kind of sound and he was gone.

I got the tune again, after a looong while. I went into map view and searched around, and yes indeed, I saw a cloud on the map. Underneath, a unicorn had just appeared. Or I assume the melody marked it's first appearance, as he was in the mids of some swamp and had a sparkly cloud over him. He walked out of the long grass and started eating - he definately was not dying. As long as the cloud was there, the theme was playing (about 15 seconds). This was the first unicorn I ever even saw in game, so I don't know more about them. But I was excited to finally see one, his name is Soldier. :)

Oh, Joria!  That is the saddest story!  Your game did all that?  That's gut-wrenching!  I would be bawling my eyes out.

Well, I had a sim break up with another sim and the music that played was THE tune!  So whoever said it was that one, they were right.  I don't know why I did not recognize it before.  So not sure if this is the same tune as everyone else is talking about, but it is the same tune I hear every once in a while, so must be when a sim breaks up with another sim.

Is anyone sure about this tune? I've heard it several times now and there haven't been any break ups in my sims family, or in their friends families..

To me this tune is exactly the same as the break up tune. But, as other people were saying, it also had something to do with a unicorn. I don't have Pets, so the only time I've heard the tune was from a break up.

I’ve never played a file for long without StoryProgression installed, so I doubt I’d encounter this mysterious tune like some of you have. But chances are, whatever it is, it’s being used for multiple things. Maybe doing a test file where you remove almost all the townie households and change the house lots to community lots to prevent them moving back in will help pinpoint the possible source(s).
