Those aren't notes, they're chords. And I'm dammed impressed that anyone can recognize a song from just one chord (or note).
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

I honestly thought this meant "songs with just one note". That would be a way more interesting thread.

Anyway, lots, surely, but for some reason this not-particularly-good RHCP song springs to mind:

I've narrowed it down to just drums or percussion...one note.

1. When the Levee Breaks, Led Zeppelin
2. Dance the Night Away, Van Halen
3. It's the End of the World as We Know It, R.E.M.
4. Honky Tonk Women, Rolling Stones
5. Low, Cracker
If it isn't fun, I'm not doing it

You Shook Me All Night Long, by AC/DC (though it is a chord and not just a note):
