You haven't really heard it until Andrew Pixley has sung it down the phone to you while being interviewed... Grin
I'd pay good money for that. Will Andrew do it on commission?

I can fit the first verse into the end credits, but struggle a bit after that. I will be bringing lyrics sheets on April 13th, so we can work out how's its supposed to fit Cool

I've voted no, because of the utterly inappropriate lyrics. Singing about 'peace and beauty' after the end of... well, any Derek episode really, but especially Blake, is just brimming over with wrongness. A song of this type is more suited to Gerry Anderson's shows, (like those for Fireball XL5 and Stingray) but absolutely not B7!


That's a very good point. Picking a Derek episode at random:

"What about Dr Plaxton"
"Who?"

Half a minute later:

"Peace is there,
only beauty meets the eye.
Oh my love,
that's where we must fly,
and let the world go by,
Just you and I."

Or:

"I'm glad she's not dead. I needed to kill her myself."

Half a minute later:

"Peace is there,
only beauty meets the eye.
Oh my love,
that's where we must fly,
and let the world go by,
Just you and I."

Or:

Dayna/Tarrant sobbing because Justin/Zeeona is dead.

Half a minute later:

"Peace is there,
only beauty meets the eye.
Oh my love,
that's where we must fly,
and let the world go by,
Just you and I."

Or:

"You know what you always say Vila. You're always safe with me".

Half a minute later:

"Peace is there,
only beauty meets the eye.
Oh my love,
that's where we must fly,
and let the world go by,
Just you and I."

Or:

Oh shit, everyone is dead!!!!

Half a minute later:

"Peace is there,
only beauty meets the eye.
Oh my love,
that's where we must fly,
and let the world go by,
Just you and I."


There is a just slight change in tone there, perhaps Grin



Too funny!


"We've just risked our lives for nothing.. "
"No. We've just risked our lives to make Servalan RICH."


Half a minute later:

Yay! I love that theme! Much prefer it to the soppy 'Marina' Grin


Oi! Leave Marina alone! Grin

It contrasts nicely with Stingrays opening theme.. I like Fireball XL5 tune as well too though..

I've got a DVD of Fireball XL5...one of those freebies. Paula can watch it on my Laptop on the 13th...and then we can regale her with the closing credits theme. Prepare yourself to be stunned...by both the programme and the singing!!!Grin

Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I reckon if the proposed re-boot goes ahead, and it's done in a style like Firefly, the song over the end credits might just work. I wouldn't have it within ten thousand light years of series 4, though!

I voted no for the same reason given by Travisina "...a fireball, a fireball.." " Marina, Aquamarina.." takes me back to more innocent times definitely... but totally vile for B7.
And rather than Highway Star Ms Doofenscmirtz, I'd be all for Space Truckin'
Don't philosophise at me you electronic moron!GrinFrown

As we're halfway through our Derek rewatch, I thought it was an appropriate time to bump up this thread up a bit. Grin

I am the very model of a modern science fiction fan
I've got each Blake's 7 episode right from the day it began
and since I got a video I've managed to of late amass
some early bits of XL5 and Thunderbirds and Quatermass....

I only have three letters to say about the lyrics. W. T. F?
 
JustBrad
I still say, Another One Bites The Dust, would have been a more appropriate theme for S4.

And the years roll on
Like a horrid dream
If we don't find Blake
We're gonna scream.
Doomed in space
Only Leather glads our eye
A lunatic
Dictates where we must fly
Decides if we live or die
A scarey guy.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
 
JustBrad
For episode 52, may I submit some Pink Floyd?

A restless eye across a weary room
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin...

One slip and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you won't forget
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

Brad, I was expecting some really good when you said Pink Floyd, and then realised it was from Pink Floyd's weakest album by far. Wink

I would suggest something from the classic era of Floyd for episode 52....

"One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces" Grin
 
sweevo
I was thinking of "The Knife" by Genesis Smile "Some of you are going to die, martyrs, of course, to the freedom that I shall provide!" - that song suits Blake to a T.

And "Interstellar Overdrive" for Dr Plaxton Wink

Actually the Benny Hill chasing girls music would really enliven the headless robot chasing Soolin section of Headhunter if the latter were speeded up. Anyone up for producing a vid of that?

I've seen a B7 fanvid done to Another One Bites the Dust. I'm sure it was one of those advertised in the Horizon small ads (Orac's Oddments or whatever it was).

There's a speeded-up section of 'Redemption' on Youtube that does just that. From memory it has a couple of Benny Hill type sound effects as well as Yakkety Sax. It works really well!

I always wanted to do the pass-the-head scene in Headhunter as a football video, with voice over commentary and perhaps a slo-mo replay.
