I do a lot of driving and it’s the only place I can listen to music without interruptions these days. Donna Summer has been getting heavy rotation on the car stereo for the past few weeks and I’ve been particularly enjoying Dim All The Lights. The other day I was groovin’ to it with my boys and one of them pointed out the music around 50-seconds in was similar to the excellent discofied James Bond theme featured in The Spy Who Loved Me, still one of my favourite Bond films if that doesn’t make me sound too Alan Partridge. You can here this tune on the Menu screen and when Roger Moore is being chased on skis by that bloke from UFO. Have a listen and see if you agree.
mp3: Donna Summer - Dim All The Lights (12-inch version)
mp3: Marvin Hamlisch - Bond 77
On a totally unrelated note do you know what you were doing at exactly this time eleven years ago? I was sitting in a pub in Dundee with family and friends celebrating my last night as a single man.
