I've been playing a Jan Sanborn arrangement of "Falling in Love with Love" and noting that in a couple of measures the melody line is 2 sets of 3 eighth notes with the first in each set being dotted. To me this indicates 3.5 beats per measure. Huh? The Bass line is standard 3m, 1/4 notes. What am I missing here. It's probably something basic as I've had very little formal music training.

That sounds like a mistake. But, how about posting a picture of this ?

Hope this works. Several bars on this page contain the notation in question.
