Playlist: Listen, my friends! ~ August 2012

August 7, 2012

In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…


CLICK on the song titles to hear them


John Barry ~ Born Free

1 The classic theme from the short-lived 1967 spy TV drama Man In A Suitcase, which later became even more recognisable as the opening theme to Chris Evans’ awesome retro-flavoured Channel 4 variety show TFI Friday (1996-2000)

2 The really rather marvellous final scene from the – in my humble opinion, at least – very underrated 1967 Hollywood adaptation of the musical Camelot

3 An extended version of the theme from the classic ’80s US medical drama St. Elsewhere (1982-88), as composed by Grusin and included on his 1985 album Night-Lines

4 From the 1988 John Hughes film She’s Having A Baby – and later released as a single accompanied by this video directed by Bush herself and featuring Blackadder’s Tim McInnerny
