I dont know if anyone else has noticed by a recurring melody in Mike Oldfield's beautiful song "Rocky" from "Light + Shade" seems to bear more than a passing resemblance to the American standard "Home on the Range".  Listen to "Rocky" and sing in your head "Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day" and Im sure youll hear an undeniable similarity!

Home on the Range sounds as though it should be quoted in "Cook's Tune".  :O

Cooks Tune reminds me a little bit of the traditional American childrens song, "Do Your Ears Hang Low".
