Stick out tongue It's ... not guess the sound sample, but guess the original tune!

Well, probably some of you guys are eagerly following the thread of "Guess the Sound Sample" in "Looking for a game name?"
However, my thread would be wrong there, as you WILL get the game name from me!
Moreover, this is NOT only related to Amiga alone, as the tune in question was used in many other conversions of the following game.

Let's take a look at this ...

OK, RI, by Steve Turner. Nothing special, eh?
But was this really composed by Turner or some other guy alone in the 1980s? I had always thought this ... until some hobo dude with this guitar strummed along a variation of this tune last week near the supermarket. I listened again and went like ... Erm? A hobo who adapted a C64 or Amiga tune to craft his own version? Now THAT is cool!

But ... it was different. It was Turner who "adapted" a well-known tune to be used as Rainbow Islands game music.

Can you guess the original title? (I think it's trivial, but you never know...)
I'm also planning to enter this into HOL notes yet today.
