As far as I know, the Wham edition wasn't sold with the 128 music biox.
I did purchase Wham! when it was released. My friend purchased the 128 music box the following year to go with his 128k Spectrum, I borrowed his tape to grab a copy of the program and recorded both sides because it had a new 48k version.

The archive only mentions 1 and 2 and suggests they were sold together (while contradicting itself with different release dates.
This information came from old WoS. I'm fixing it now!

I will update it to say that The Music Box is a Spectrum 48K/128K title (one version on each tape side just like Fairlight) and it's derived from Wham!

Wham! The Music Box (Melbourne House)
Careless Whisper
Freedom
Club Tropicana
Young Guns
Bad Boys
------------------------------------

Music Box 128K (Melbourne House)
Train
Gyroscope
Blue Danube
Train
Sweevos World
When The Saints Go Marching In
Rock And Wrestle

Music Box 48K (Melbourne House)
Exploding Fist
When The Saints Go Marching In
Gyroscope 4
Train
The Can-Can
Men Of Harlech
1. What is "Train"?

2. The Sweevo's World title music is The Washington Post per other sources, and The Can-Can is Galop Infernal, so I will change both of these.

3. I am planning to exclude Gyroscope, Rock and Wrestle and Exploding Fist, unless we can identify the tunes as sourced from elsewhere.

This means the proposed ZXDB comment is likely to look something like this:

8965|Wham! The Music Box|Includes the following music: Wham!, Careless Whisper, Freedom, Club Tropicana, Young Guns, Bad Boys
8481|The Music Box|Includes the following music: [48K] When the Saints Go Marching In; Jacques Offenbach, Orphée aux enfers II, 2 “Galop Infernal”; Men Of Harlech; [128K] Johann Strauss Jr., An der schönen, blauen Donau op.314 “The Blue Danube” waltz; John Philip Sousa, The Washington Post; When the Saints Go Marching In

Does this make sense?

No, not like Fairlight at all! Fairlight was released in 1985 before the 128 was released, with a separate 128k version the following year.

What I mean is, the 128K release of Fairlight included both (48K and 128K) in the same package, as separate programs.

Thanks for fixing Wham! The Music Box/The Music Box so quickly. I have one quick correction, though. For Wham! The Music Box, there is a comment "Derived to". "Derive" is not used this way in standard English. Better in my opinion would be "Source for" or "Origin of". ("Derived from" in The Music Box is perfectly OK.)

Since @Joefish correctly guessed it in the quiz, we should add the following:

Hunchback (ID 2383) features John W. Bratton, Teddy Bear Two-Step "The Teddy Bears' Picnic"

On Music Box 128, it loads and plays a tune that I missed off the list - The introduction sounds similar to the "Peter Gunn" theme tune by Henri Mancini but at a faster tempo.
