It depends if I’ve been entertaining the owls.
Anyway, from Time Hole, on Terrorform:
Pre-existing music included a firm favourite – ‘Copacabana’. On original transmission, a version by none other than James Last was used, although copyright allowance saw later versions using an alternative, similar-sounding, version.
We’ve been hunting for this original broadcast for ages here at G&T, but with absolutely no success. And then I found it, completely randomly, on YouTube! Although is that actually Copacabana? It doesn’t sound like it to me – it sounds like generic musak, but then, erm, I can’t say I know the James Last version of Copacabana that well.
It’s really weird hearing it. Like that time when I first watched a version of Demons & Angels which included the line “The part of you that lusts after meaningless sex” (which was cut out of the 94 repeat version – the only copy I had for ages), it’s strange when you know an episode so well, and then something different happens in it…
