    I saw a brilliant episode of Midsomer Murders (season 14 I think) where they sang Nellie the Elephant whilst giving CPR to Keith Allen (one of the characters). Of course, when I think of Nellie the Elephant I think of the Toy Dolls so I immediately started laughing my head off and clapping in glee simultaneously. Today I finally looked it up and found this:

    and apparently they used it for something like the article – a CPR campaign…and it was a cover of an old children’s song from the 50s.
