Orchestrated TV
« on: December 02, 2014, 05:49:42 PM »
That "Classical Quadrophenia" story has posed a question to me.

Which of TV's songs would be best suited to a full orchestral version?

I have a few ideas, but I'll start the ball rolling with "The Lion and the Lamb" - bet that would sound great!

Bloody hell! Cheers Ken.

I had no idea about this. Mind you, I'm not convinced it works all that well. A nice gimmick, but I couldn't listen to it for long. What do you other TUTS think?

I still reckon there are other TV Smith songs that would sound great with an orchestra.

Yeah, same here.

Hm, made me think...
"Roll Like A River" maybe?
Just around the corner and miles away...

I'd forgotten about the classical Gary Gilmore's Eyes....

Well most of the Explorer's tracks would work well and a Cast of Thousands... and of course the mighty 'As Soon as I found it I lost it'...
