Goosebumps for me at the 4:00 point .. the next MC, ignore that man before him. I'm dedicating this one to nobody, this one's mine


I don't often like grime MC's but Wretch32 is someone to watch.

Hoping someone here can save my sanity by ID'ing a piece . . .

What is the opening theme to the 1993 TV series "Demob" with Griff Rhys-Jones and Martin Clunes? It's a piece of WWII big-band music that I know I've heard before, but I can't pull up the title to save my life.

HELP!!

Normally I don't 'get' Arctic Monkeys music (except Cornerstone) but I love The Last Shadow Puppets
(Hello @Schrodinger's Zebra , I'm trusting you're doing ok?)

If you loved 'Puppets' you may-well adore the Arctics' title track "Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino". Full of 60s/70s Bowieesque / Floydean vibe with masses of Fortean imagery.

It's really good....please do all listen to it

Jesus in the day spa
Filling out the information form
Mama got her hair done
Just popping out to sing a protest song
I've been on a bender back to that prophetic esplanade
Where I ponder all the questions
But just manage to miss the mark

Good afternoon
Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino
Mark speaking
Please tell me how may I direct your call?

This magical thinking
Feels as if it really might catch on
Mama wants some answers
Do you remember where it all went wrong?
Technological advances
Really bloody get me in the mood
Pull me in close on a crisp eve, baby
Kiss me underneath the moon's side boob

Good afternoon
Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino
Mark speaking
Please tell me how may I direct your call?

Do you celebrate your dark side
Then wish you'd never left the house?
Have you ever spent a generation
Trying to figure that one out?

It's late and I'm tired:

If I remember my dream tonight, I'll mention it on here.

Wouldn't be, 'Land of Hope and Glory', perchance?

Suggestion originates from the following - Peter Martin is credited as the composer for 'Demob'.

A reasonable guess, but no. The piece I'm thinking of (nonstop. It has burrowed into my brain and can't be dislodged) is a big band swing standard from the 1940's. I know I should recognize it, but the title completely escapes me. Naturally, this seems to be the one piece in the entire "Demob" series that isn't credited.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.
