Clef Band-Box Resurrected

An automaton band-in-a-box made by Clef Products (Electronics) Ltd of Stockport, Cheshire, UK in ca 1982, the Clef Band-Box was rare, with only about 1000 made. There is an article on the Clef Band-Box at Matrixsynth.

Huge thanks to genius Andy Collins at Antech Systems for restoring one I was lucky to find.

Question is, what piece of music can it be used in?
