Well, I realised it tonight as I was watching an episode of Star Trek: Voyager from series 6 called “Virtuoso”. The episode is all about the holographic doctor, in real life Robert Picardo, becoming a musical sensation.

It all starts off when the doctor is treating four aliens and he begins to sing a song. Music is something completely unknown to these aliens and ……  The tune he sings is “Working on the Railroad” the same as Sprout, our switch adapted toy, sings.
