Seeking name of game tune

Hi guys,
I know this is a long shot (and a bit off topic), but I have been looking for the name of a SID tune/author for may years,

I'm looking for the name of the tune which was used during the loading screen of many C64 Kixx releases.

I remember Rainbow Islands, Summer Camp, Cybernoid2 and New Zealand Story having this tune whilst loading.
Probably some Dizzy titles also.

Don't be too harsh because this isn't Amiga related, it's just that nobody on the C64 forums knows what i'm talking about.
(mind you, their memory is only 64k)

Thankyou for your constructive replies.

You guys are amazing!
Thanks to Raislin for the initial source, and many thanks to Code Tapper for the definitive source.
It was indeed Loader 5.sid
Four is the same tune (but slightly different) and was used in the older games, I believe.
You guys should listen to this - many memories!
Now, how to copy to a playable CD?, any offers?
Many thanks guys.

Thanks for the help chaps.

I did notice the 'wink' on Galahad's response (subtlety obviously doesn't work on here!).

Your replies have been most welcome and helpful.

Regards,
Magno Boots

EAB? (Elivis) has (absconded) from the (building)?

What do ya know hey!. i havent havent heard these Ocean Sid tunes since the 80's !. Those loader Tunes were on so many games!. I seriously almost feel like crying when i hear them from the feelings of the memories. And thats what i think it is really.. A feeling.

The Commodore 64 & the Commodore Amiga. Could we have ever asked for 2 better machines than these?. I dont think so.

And huh!.. i just noticed how Mango Boots Avatar is a 1 UP from Turrican 1. Nice!.. i like it.
