Musical coincidences # 195

I recently heard* a song called “Take Me Away” by Irish band Pugwash. I thoroughly enjoyed it (see below), and it reminded me that I haven’t heard much by Pugwash and it might be time for me to investigate some more of their music. (Advice to self: listen to some more Pugwash.)

Anyway, when the vocal melody of “Take Me Away” began I thought to myself “Hey, that sounds a lot like something else.” Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of what that something else was. My next thought was a frustrated “What is it?” It took a while, but finally the synapses were firing and the neurons made the connection:
