Quincy

Also related to my local radio station, who are currently running a quiz to name various Television Themes. They play the first couple of seconds and ask people to phone in. After an initial couple of listens it sounded more and more familiar.
It never really dawned on me that it was the theme to Quincy :-? and is, as such sampled on Quincy's Lunch. Anytime I have ever caught the show I've missed this little bit at the start (I don't make a habit of watching obviously), or they've cut it off to save some time. 8)

I had originally thought the reference, Quincy's Lunch came from the Quincy's cafe/restaurant chain. As Homer Simpson would say "D'oh!" :-?

Now for the scientific bit:
(sorry TV on the brain today - most definately nothing to do with the start of BBC Three :( )
Who's idea was it to sample the theme? (Was it another of Daz's mixes?)
L8RS,
John

Cue... ...stupid remarks in... ...three... ...two... ...1... ...! :P

i always thought it was something to do with Quincy Jones?

Aphrodite (drum n bass dj) did a tune called Rinsing Quince, that sampled a Quincy tune!

on the wrong tracks - D'oh


this is for the trainspotters out there :

(just been digging into my tv soundtrack collection) - Quincy M.E. is on a compilation TELEVISION'S GREATEST HITS volume 3 (65 classic tv themes from the 70's & 80's)

Well done boys!

Found this on http://www.inquire.net/quincy/

The Hallmark Channel has just started showing a rerun of the series. They started showing Quincy on 01/01/03 with the first episode from Season 1 and it looks like they’re showing the series in order. Hopefully we’ll get to see all 148 episodes.

The Hallmark Channel is available on Sky digital, ntl:home and Telewest and you can find their TV listings at http://www.hallmarkchannel.co.uk/home.asp.

At the moment Qunicy’s being shown weekdays at 12.00 with a repeat showing at 18.00.

Well, if I ever come accross 'The Munsters' theme :-? (Unlikely!) I will pass it along, I assume you're after the original and not the theme from any of the later crap.
L8RS,
John
PS.You don't happen to have the theme to Chorlton and the Wheelies (nothing to do with where any of 808 may live) :P

Chorlton & the wheelies!!! phew thats going back a bit! I was digging through my CD singles the other day and I've got the Banana splits theme by a group called GSP, cannot remember buying it tho! There were loadsa cheesy rave tracks that used cartoon / kids shows themes out in the 90's but I can't remember Chorlton being used!

I never realised that Quincy's lunch included any of the original Quincy theme music. Anyway the programme is bollocks. Real comedy viewing.

Quincy's Lunch only takes the first 10 seconds of Quincy M.E. theme tune!

No Chorlton & Wheelies theme, but u can get the video & DVD everywhere, just hook it up to your hi-fi - kaboom!

Chorlton

I've actually got all three series' on DVD but the sound isn't that fantastic - but none the less a great trip back to childhood. Not forgetting Rainbow and Jamie and his Magic Torch.
"Bye Bye Little old lady." said Chorlton

I don't know about anyone else but reading is making me feel old. :wink: Only another 42 years until I draw my pension. Ooops! I forgot, there won't any such thing as a pension by then :wink:
P.S. Who remembers Terrahawks? Pure class.
P.P.S. Quincy isn't bollocks, it's essential lunchtime viewing.

I know this is turning into an off-topic, but fans of Quincy must also like Columbo. Its been on every day recently on Five and Granada Plus, pure genius.......

Oh......
