Ever since I originally played Theme Hospital in the 90's, this has been bugging me.

There is a song on the intro video that plays over game footage, or in this game trailer. It sounds very 60's and features a trumpet as the main instrument.

I have heard this song used before on television for adverts or segways in programmes but have never been able to identify it.

    I don't know the song, but it sounds like Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Aug 14 '17 at 16:45
  • @ChrisSunami You're right - I've just been through a load of his albums and it has that very distinctive sound. Unfortunately haven't found it yet....

This song is a production music (also catalogue or library music) from the Archive: Kitsch Pop, by the Warner/Chappell Music Company.

The song is called Fly Away and is written by Roger Webb, reference CHAP205-1 and was released in 1996, two years before the game, so it could have been chosen to feature in the Theme Hospital Trailer.
