A tip-off from Jules:
“Listen to a bit of the end credits music from this little known computer game I used to have on my Amiga. The music starts at about 5:10mins into the video:

No, Jules, it’s not just you. They are indeed suspiciously similar. Not that I would wish to cast any aspersions – it could, of course, be mere coincidence. It is notoriously difficult to prove musical authorship, and there’s always a chance that both songs were originally inspired by another. Just as both Coldplay and Satriani were clearly influenced by Gunther:
Incidentally, if you would like to see more of Gunther and his large-breasted ladyfriends, there is a much better edited video of them here. I just couldn’t bring myself to post six whole minutes of that tache.
I hope this has been educational, kids.
