That's pretty audacious of Hisayoshi Ogura! I'm surprised Taito didn't get sued. Or maybe they got a license for that from Loew's Inc. (or whoever held the copyright to the music in the early 80s)?

Since the sequence is pretty unique in the song I wouldn't be suprised if there is another song where that one took it from, maybe even from before the Wizard of Oz. But I won't know until i find it.
