Re: Frame That Tune

Spot on, that was far too easy after all. I will have to put my thinking cap on if I do another one. I came across these interesting facts in relation to the song

Frank Sinatra's 1964 recording of "Fly Me To The Moon" became closely associated with NASA's Apollo space program. A copy of the song was played on the Apollo 10 mission which orbited the moon.
It became "the first music ever heard on the moon" when played on a portable cassette player by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin after he stepped onto the moon.
(Source Wikipedia)

Interesting stuff

Re: Frame That Tune

OK, time for a clue about the band who had this hit.

Originating from Liverpool in the mid 1980's, you don't have to go to Hollywood to find them but it might help.

Ah, yes, the John Lennon song. That would fit, but it's not the one.

Just Relax and the name of this hit will follow.

Re: Frame That Tune

I know it's wrong but appropriate: "Back in the USSR"

Re: Frame That Tune

Another clue, this song features the sampled voice of actor Patrick Allen, taken from his narration of the British Government's "Protect and Survive" series of instructional videos from the 1970s.

Well, sort of. That's what the song is about anyway. But remember, "a point is all that you can score."
