Many people will think: of the music as the theme from The Benny Hill Show, because it was played at the end of his TV shows while other people chased after him. The original music used for the Benny Hill Show was called "Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolf. Chet Atkins covered it but being a guitarist not a saxophone player Chet Atkins called his version ''Yakety Axe", (Axe being a slang term for guitar). The music track I used is a revamp of the music by Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler with words added to the melody line by Merle Travis. It is available for download from music.nokia.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, and Play.com.
I hope you enjoy it.
