The music round cheat for the Persevere is daft Punk but doesn’t necessarily sound like Daft Punk. Not least because the bloke doing the singing is Paul Williams, better known as the guy that did the music for Bugsy Malone back in the 1970s
The whole song is over eight minutes long. That’s longer than Bohemian Rhapsody, although it has not attainend the same cultural impact.
There’s no way Ken Bruce would play this at the end of Popmaster. It’s too obscure. Not Steely Dan enough. Not Dire Straits.
Thanks for coming to the quiz tonight if you’re coming and, if you are coming, don’t be the ones that take the hump.
The music round cheat for the Persevere is a big hit from the 80s. No one had a voice like Roland Gift.
It still bangs.
I’m personally pleased that England are NOT in the final. Not from a petty shit-hate point of view, but more for the fact that the pub (the Persevere) will largely be neutral this afternoon, which is usually a better atmosphere.
My only wish for the final this afternoon is that it concludes in normal time. If so then the quiz will go ahead as usual at 6pm.
If it goes to extra time we may have to start a little later, but either way there WILL be a quiz.
