Axel F

Axel F by Crazy Frog was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 4, 2005 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This keyboard-driven instrumental was the theme song to the 1985 Eddie Murphy movie Beverly Hills Cop. Murphy's character was named Axel Foley, which is how the song got its name. During production of the movie, this was known as the "Banana Theme," as it was slated for a scene where Axel Foley shoves a banana in the tailpipe of police officers intending to pursue him. This has been used in a number of TV shows, often to signify the '80s. The Simpsons, Family Guy and Friends have all used it. This is mentioned early on in Stephen King's 2006 novel Cell, which is about a mysterious signal that turns cellphone users into homicidal maniacs. The first ringtone mentioned is "Axel F," which was also a favorite song of the protagonist's young son.
