Some early games by Elite Systems use Novaload to entertain the gamer with music while the actual game slowly loads from tape. The earliest of them also use Novaload's demo song. Later, an Elite programmer, possibly Neil Bate or Chris Harvey, asked in-house musician Mark Cooksey to type Living on Video into Novaload.

It sounds the same on every SID chip.
