  • Versions of "2001"

    I think Mr Müller's version is the best one.
    What's your favourite?

    And how many has covered that song?
    Here are a few that I can remember at the moment: Ventures, Ferrante and Teicher, Topaz (spanish version), Les Reed Orchestra, Ray McVay, Top of the pops...

        the Stan Kenton one off &#39;7.5 on richter scale&#39; is pretty good. a young peter (God) erskine on skins.

        also check the Yuppi Du OST. the first track&#39;s a mellow funk take on 2001 (lots of Rhodes) which is great for relaxing to.

        best one i&#39;ve heard yet is the Galactic Light Orchestra. Tobias - should be an easy pick for you, Teddy got one for me on 45 from your part of the world? thanks&#33;

                    I&#39;ve liked the Salinas version ever since the boys at Steps Ahead in Leicester sold me the &#39;Inside Out&#39; comp back in the mid 90s.

                    I seem to remember a Stan Kenton version being quite tasty.

                    PS And of course the Bill Hicks remix...&quot;That&#39;s exactly how it fuckin&#39; happened&#33;&#33;&quot;

                      I&#39;ve never been a fan of 2001 but if I had to choose one it would be the Meirelles&#39; one on Brasil Explosion.

                          &quot;Peacemaker&quot; by Rosko is the business. A guy rapping about keeping peace over the whole universe, on top of one of the funkiest 2001s I&#39;ve heard. A personal fave...

                            I agree with Mr Divine. Rosko&#39;s version funks me up&#33;&#33;
                            For a more cheesy and plain weird version check out Ray Connifs &quot;vocal&quot; version called &quot;Bah Bah Conniff Sprach&quot;.

                              Absolutely - But isn&#39;t the actual music track just a slight re-edit of Deodato&#39;s &#39;2001&#39; - it sounds almost identical to me..?
