A Flock of Seagulls - "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" (1983)

The three-note keyboard riff in this song proceeds as though the lowest note, Gb, is the root.

Not only is it not the root, it's not even a chord tone. It's the fourth of the scale, a suspension.

When the notes then rise over the Eb minor chord, it's the third.
