Different 'That's Livin' Alright' Endings.

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Fri Nov 14, 2014 7:41 pm

Many of the episodes feature different beginnings to 'That's Livin' Alright' but a couple of episodes (I think) feature a slightly different version of the song.

Last Rites features a more relaxed version of 'That's Livin' Alright' which I think is fantastic!

I do wonder why they did this, I mean even though I like the different versions, why do it?

It's got me thinking if other programmes has done this and which ones. Maybe it was number 3 in the charts before Last Rites was broadcast and they thought they would 'tweak' that episode ending as a celebration.

I like the one that starts with a kind of Hillbilly Banjo twanging... ;)

I wonder if a full length version of that mix exists?
Vast majority of hits from that period had several different versions.

Slightly away from thats livin' alright - I'm told the 12" version of Get it Right is based on the version used in the Return of the 7. I'd love to hear that mix

Really? Fantastic stuff!

Also going off a bit, the Vinyl version of The Best of Series 1 & 2 has different songs to the CD version!

Anyone got a record player and able to get this sorted?
We could chip in if we want a CD copy to cover costs.

Even though it's not an ending version of the theme, my favourite version would have to be in "The Fugitive" when they're driving back to the building site after buying the car for the day.
GET BAAAAAAAACK!
