Special 80s mentions:

 

'Peg O' My Hear', used as the opening theme for the BBC's 'The Singing Detective' (probably Dennis Potter's finest hour. It was certainly Joanne Whalley's).

 

Eric Clapton's score for 'The Edge Of Darkness'.

Ah, yes.

The Edge of Darkness.

Forgot about that....very haunting music, and storyline.

Great choice.

'Murder She Wrote' is the only murder mystery series which has a cheerful tune

Call me an old softy but someone played a bit of this on the radio the other day & it brought back a few memories.  The opening theme tune to 'White Horses.' 

 

And just to get some credibility back, the opening theme tune & credits to 'The Sopranos' by Alabama 3.

No, don't know that one?

 

Was it one of those religious, Sunday early evening programmes from the 1970's?

Last of the Summer Wine

 

We had the Last Of The Summer Wine theme as one of my dad's funeral songs. A family choice. Him & ma loved that program. People who knew him well commented after the service on how apt it was. Naturally they were smiling, as he would have been.

 

(The other two were Tina Turner's 'Simply The Best' - my daughter's choice as he loved Tina Turner and seeing her at Don Valley was one of the last gigs he ever saw, and I also picked  Geoff Love's version of Pomp & Circumstance/Land Of Hope And Glory from the' War Themes' album as he was an ex-RAF man).

Ha! Yeah, why's this clown even here? Is he one of those Troggs we're always hearing about...?

Dunno if you've heard this 60s grooveathon. From the TV21 EP. Owned it since it was released in the mid 60s. It's a good take. Big horn sound. Love it.

Or told them the truth. That works too. Or maybe not......
