In honour of "It's A Rainbow" by Rainbow, a trance track with bits of the Rainbow theme which somewhat took me by surprise during the Top 40 rundown.

What TV themes SHOULD have had rave versions, too?

Search: "Charly", "A Trip To Trumpton", "Roobarb and Custard", "Toontown"

Destroy: "Sesame's Treet", alas. It just doesn't work.

Neongenesis Evangalion. Must find an MP3 of the theme tune, coz it's great! (I still don't understand what the hell is going on in the show though).

Also search "Doctor ?" even though it isn't really toytown.

Search: Mark Summers 'Summers Magic' - plundering The Magic Roundabout and a host of other TV classics

Destroy: The Badman 'Magic Style' which tries to do the same thing but just doesnt cut it as well

they were both released at the same time in 1990, hence the comparison

i do remember at least one rave/jungle track that sampled the theme about 7/8 years ago

there was also a Dr WHo track called 'Return Of The Doctor' and i think it was credited to Boomtown

and lets not forget that awful Monkess jungle track from around '95/'96 - i remember Fabio being particularly vitriolic in criticising that one

Who did the Sesame Street one? That was great.

That was Smart E's, and time has not looked kindly upon it IMO.

I didn't realize "Summer's Magic" qualified! That track is GENIUS!

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 10 December 2002 14:53 (eighteen years ago) link

there was a joey beltram remix of that!!!

gareth (gareth), Tuesday, 10 December 2002 15:17 (eighteen years ago) link

allegedly when "Trip To Trumpton" came out American ravers thought it was about some town in England where everyone was rave mad, and then went to travel agents looking for flights there.

allegedly.
