All I can think of is Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield. You probably tried that.

OR could someone list vangelis songs that CFNY played during that era?the trouble is most the downloads for vangelis are in album form!(takes a long time to download)this track i seek was not an uptempo bit,rather,a haunting type melody with repeat fades(there that should really confuse)i think if it got any play today,we'd be shoping....

Chariots of Fire maybe ?

I think they also played Yin and Yang from his China album once in a while.

Or it could be something from Tangerine Dream's album Exit.

There was also a Soft Machine album titled "Land Of Cockayne" that got a fair amount of play in late '81/early '82 ....check out the track "Lotus Groves", as it also fits the description in your first post.

definatly not chariots of eggs(sctv)as far as lotus groves goes,i can't find a listing on winmx!!Tubular bells is 5 miles out on that one.i'd say it sounds simalar to tomita's 1974 snowflakes are dancing but the notes aren't as poppy as tomita,but a blend of synth with notes of a high scale.STILL FISHING!!PLEASE KEEP ADDING YOUR THOUGHTS,MUCH APPREACHEATED!
