  • Bilitis

    just had a strange request from a chap searching for a copy of the 'Bilitis' soundtrack by Francis Lai...

    the thing is it was requested to be played at the funeral of his friend and he is searching for a copy before next week. Its a pretty common one-anyone out there got a spare that they could sort this chap out with pronto-i'm sure he'd be most appreciative...drop me a line if you can help!!

    I have a spare.
    Actually, I have two (the other one's for Emperor Tomato Ketchup, I think)
    Can post tomorrow morning.
    (do we get to know which track is being played?)
    Send me an email or PM

      Strange indeed !

      ... the person must have done a Google search for the album and chanced upon our "Soundtracks" pages...

      I suppose this thread should now open out into a chat about "what tracks do you want playing at your funeral"



      3 tracks maximum. I don't like churches or graveyards so I ain't up for hangin' around listening to whole albums !!

      ...my choices... ?

      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

        that's you all square with the geezer upstairs then dr kraken!

        he wanted the title track i think, not the one with the hefty drum break in it...

          Funnily enough I've thought about starting that very thread before...

          Curtis Mayfield - '(Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below We're All Gonna Go'
          Hmmm, the humour would probably be lost. Maybe 'Move On Up' would be better.

          Kylie - 'Better The Devil You Know'
          Too obvious?

          War - 'Slipping Into Darkness'...



          BTW "Stairway denied."
          You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

            This guy wants a hymn called Bilitis... is that on the album?

            erm... I was playing the Oakridge Boys the other night (50s gospel group) ... every bleeding song is about meeting your maker ... but it doesn't pay to be solemn, so if i's a cremation, it will have to be (When Your Heart's On Fire) Smoke Gets In Your Eyes ...that's only one track but I've got a train to catch.

                mine would have to be -

                1. Minnie Riperton - Les Fleurs

                2. Walter Jackson - Uphill climb to the Bottom

                3. Don Sebesky - Firebird

                going for that huge vibe / goose pimple effect, hehe

                  Minnie Ripperton's 'Les Fleurs'? What an exit that'd be...

                  Frivolously:

                  Keith Mansfield: The Undertaker's Song
                  101 Strings: Flameout
                  Robert Johnson: Hellhound On My Tail
                  John Keating: I Feel The Earth Move
                  Frank Sinatra: Let's Get away From It All
                  Yves Hyatt: Path To Ascension
                  June Christy: It Could Happen To You

                  Seriously?

                  Alice Coltrane: Galaxy in Satchidananda
                  Mercury Rev: The Dark Is Rising
                  Vashti Bunyan: Rose Hip November

                      Hmmh... funeral tracks. Guess mine would be:

                      An Elegy - The Free Design
                      Dead - Cresa Watson - or the Lydia Pense version - but that goes on for ages and I'll be in the urn by time before the third tune, which is...
                      Above The Clouds - Gangstarr - cos that's where I'll be, no brimestone for I... either that all the whole of Al Tariq's God Connections LP, cos I'll be runnin tings up there...
