Default Re: Music memories

My Sunday Music Memory-of-fear was inadvertently mistiming and so crashing into the sphincter-tightening theme of "Sing Something Simple" when planning to record the chart show on Radio1.

Nobody's mentioned the cricket test match Rain-Stopped-Play music which I seem to recall was by Booker T and the MGs; was it Green Onions?

Occasionally, incidental or theme music which you remember from many years ago pops up again in something else.

When Johnny Morris's 'Animal Magic' with its distinctive theme tune originally aired I was about the right age to be in its target demographic.

Many years later I sat down to watch the BBC mockumentary 'W1A' and was surprised to notice it re-using the old 'Animal Magic' theme tune.

I think the likes of J Dilla used some.
