Cover in Intro. Copyright??

My team and I in our team intro hummed the final countdown. Would that count as breaching the copyright standard?
And if the intro doesnt count as copyright, can we throw in a backing track?

I believe the team intros do count as part of your entry, as they will be screened/broadcast alongside the film itself, therefore IMHO both have the same copyright restrictions.
