A very famous cult movie featured this song in its opening credits. The soundtrack of this movie became 21 on the Billboard 200 list, and went on to become platinum.Thats how we might have come across this catchy tune for the first time.

Later,William James (known by a completely different stage name) came across this tune by accident in a music store in Brazil.The version James came across was done by Dick Dale who also did the tune for the abve moive.He claims to have made a famous song of his,which incorporates this tune, while on a train in Brazil, and later on, on a flight to Tokyo. The song became a #3 on the UK singles chart,#1 in Belgian top 50. That should have technically been the second time we mite have come across the tune.

The tune was used a number of times in a number of ads,movies,tv shows.

Identify the movie, the band which James is a member of, the song which uses the tune, and the name of this famous tune.

Ans: The movie is 'Pulp Fiction' , the band 'Black Eyed Peas' (William James is  , th song which uses the tune is Pump It and the tune itself is Misirlou.
