A Public Service.

Annoyed that you can't figure out what the hell that music in the new Blackberry ad is?  Wondering why it sounds a bit like Queen?  That's because it is Queen, with their theme for the 1980 flop Flash Gordon.  I've  never seen the movie, and looking at the clips here I'm in no hurry to.  (Melody Anderson's acting looks pretty bad here.) One thing that's amusing to me about the Queen footage in the vid is Brian May doing piano parts on an Oberheim OBX analog synthesizer.  For those not familiar with it, an OBX cannot do realistic piano sounds.
