This one is annoyingly familiar - anyone put me out of my misery and tell me what it is, please? @23.08



And this one?  Go ahead, make my day  :) @ 10.22

The first one I can't place it's original counterpart, but I think i've heard the library tune of what's playing on the Prisoner Cell Block show it in an early 80's porno before over here in the US.

The 2nd one is an unknown library knock off of Toto's "Africa".

I would bet anything that these may be from one of the JW/Programme Music knock off LP's circa 1982/83. That's my guess (unless some of the others had these too).

#1's originally from Intersound,
"Dream Away" from ISUS 123 "Dream Away: Underscores".

Oddly enough, you'll find it sampled not only in the cue Mucrim mentioned above, but also in "Flydream" on MSE-158.

Found the other one - on DWSLP 3513.  How I didn't check there I don't know!

Cheers guys for the help!  I flicked through  a pile of records BRG's, BRH's, BRI's, BRL's, KPMs, DW's, etc and actually found three tracks I was after!  Always worth doing.  Catalogues can help because your average music editor may have used these to guide them to a certain track and of course the timeline of 1981-82 helped narrow the field.  I just pulled out a pile of 1981 LPs that had at least one pop track on.
Annoyingly I should have checked 'Chartbreakers' first but I thought I was familiar with every track- used loads in Aussie soaps in the 80's.
