You Only Live Twice Question
« on: September 05, 2010, 01:17:41 AM »
Great dramatization but I was curious about the synthpop music played at the beginning. Anyone have any idea about the song.

Hey Sammy, welcome to the boards! :)

I\'ve recorded this one, but haven\'t listened yet. When I do, I\'ll post back either way. In the mean time, you might ask the R7 messageboard hosts, they\'re very helpful. If they know it, they\'ll tell you. If you decide to do that and get an answer, we\'ll put it in the What\'s That Music? category for future reference :)

Glad you posted. Hopefully you\'ll make a habit of it :)

Heya Sammy! Weeeelcome,

Now I\'ve set a search in motion and promise \"O\" but so fare have come up with some triva, I\'d no idea Dahl was involved with the block buster film productions, wonder if anyone else had?



Aaaaaand while we\'re on the subject discover another link which may hold promise. Or am I the last to have become aware of it.

Back here as soon as I\'ve picked up some gen.

Cheers,
Tru

Hi,

thanks for the suggestions. Did due diligence before posting here and trudged all over the interweb thingy but couldn\'t find any info. Posted the question on the BBC7 board - we shall see.
For me maybe not a good choice of music, torn between listening to the dialogue and trying to figure out what the music was.

Well after all this time came back to resurrect this post and answer my own question.

Recently rediscovered a copy of the broadcast on an old drive. Managed to cut out about 10 seconds of the music without dialogue and upload it to a music search engine. Much to my surprise it found a match. Turns out it is "Okinawa Song – Chin Nuku Juushii" by  Ryuichi Sakamoto from the album Neo Geo (1987).

At last, I can rest easy now. 8)

And the piece is really rather good; well out there in the realms of the original  ;)
Great to hear from you after 7 years *****
Looking forward to more ... before 2024 though as likely I'll be gone by then! ;D

I find it amazing that you have a posting gap of seven years. Please help satisfy my curiousity.

Have you been here on and off (during those years but only as a 'reader'? (I hate the L word, would prefer voyeur to that term)

If yes, how often, on average would you say you visit the site?

That information deserves a special place in the "What's that Music" forum. Talk about determination! Well done!

Ryuchi Sakamoto was once in the Yellow Magic Orchestra where he helped write "Behind The Mask" which Eric Clapton 'borrowed'. !
