It's late and I'm tired:

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

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

What is the opening theme to the 1993 TV series "Demob"...
...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.
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.

I've got one of their albums sat around, not sure what brought this up in my yoochube suggestions.

And why is the guy in folk songs always called Willy?

Beautiful!

Such a shame that the media promotes such repugnant imported music forms such as rap, instead of supporting the tremendous indigenous musical heritage we have.

Quality ..

.. and me and the Mrs re watched Elm Street 4 a couple of days ago, I used to have the soundtrack on Vinyl, I even nicked one of Craig Safan's instrumental tracks for an early horror short I made. She quite rightly said I should have put the first Elm Street on instead because it's the better film, I've just always loved the rocky soundtrack from part 4.

I quite like that, it's more Poppy than Rocky, not a criticism just an observation, I love 80s Pop. Makes me think of David Lynch for some reason.

There's another current band mentioned in the article and their singer also sounds like Staley:


Weird.

raps not repugnant, youve clearly been listening to the wrong schizzle
I couldn't stand Tupac Shakur .. or 'Tupac' as 99% of his English fans called him. A totally self absorbed EMO whinging wanker on the same level as John Lennon, Liam Gallagher & Ritchie Manic, he did a lot of harm to rap music

oooh my Daddy's on welfare
and ma Momma's on healthcare
aama angel of the night etc etc .. snore

Tupac was the same sort of artist that people complained about when the X Factor did those sob story segments (that they've thankfully stopped nowadays) when performers explained that they were only performing in honour of people they known and loved who'd died in bleak circumstances and the were now raising Tiny Tim with one leg and then etc etc ..
