Soap opera signature tune ?

Quote
Of all the abilities of the fetus, learning has attracted considerable attention for its 'adult like' qualities.  In 1988 we found that babies whose mothers had watched the TV programme 'Neighbours' whilst pregnant preferred this tune after birth, even though they had only heard the tune before birth.

Very interesting. Not what I had in mind though.

(Hint - this question was posted in Chat, so the answer is unlikely to have much to do with science!)

(Second Hint - older viewers are much more likely to know this)

I like RD's mention of mummys voice. After all baby spends all that time inside mummy hearing it !! My initial mentions of breath, cry and feed I have resigned to instincts now. Could the first thing ewe learn be the adoption of a habit ?

I don't mean to be "crude", but nobody is even flipping close.

For me it was breast feeding.

Some habits are hard to break.

Nope. I'll post the official answer at 8:00 pm UK time, then I will go into hiding for a while.

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin' crude.
 
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.
 
Well the first thing you know ol' Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said Jed move away from there
Said Californy is the place you ought to be
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.
 
Hills, that is.

Swimmin pools, movie stars.
