      Horse - 'imitation' and Lenny Kravitz 'it ain't over till its over'. The intros are practically identical!

                Hi Shilton I've heard people mention this one before but it's really the electronic effect that Vangelis uses that sounds like Brooky. The melody itself is quite different. Sorry. I'm sounding pedantic! lol

                      This might be a bit of stretch but part of the refrain from The Beatles' All My Loving (1963) and Morecambe & Wise's iconic theme song Bring Me Sunshine (written in 1966) are somewhat similar.

                          I always though Music would be good for a film or TV theme, I never noticed it sounded like the Blake's 7 theme. I'll have to play them back to back.

                          When I was very young I used to get Van McCoy's The Shuffle & the Sports Report theme mixed up, due to the flutes used in both.

                            Same here. For a long time I thought they were one and the same. I had a little dance for the sports report theme

                              Ah hold on a minute. Sports report isn't what I am thinking of. Apparently that had Out Of The Blue as its theme and that isn't it, but there was something on the radio that sounded like do the hustle that I danced to! Can you give me any more info Richard? I've not heard the radio tune since I was little.
