    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.

    Bob Marley's 'Buffalo Soldier' and the theme tune to The Banana Splits.

    Another retro site explored this a little in a podcast. One of the ones they picked up on was the middle section of the sitcom 'Please Sir's theme sounding like the 'Blankety Blank' theme tune. Which it does.

    and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXJfVXYL714&ob=av2e (The Stranglers -Duchess)


    And I also think Ghostbusters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvkKX035484 sounds like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly5fwalNxmk Pop Music by "M"

    Ghostbusters also sounds like I Want A New Drug http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6uEMOeDZsA&ob=av2e. Huey Lewis's lawyers thought it did too.
