Magic Fly by Space (1977)

The worldwide number 1 hit "Magic Fly" as released in 1977 by the band Space.   I used to nick off with my brother's copy of this and play it over and over again as a kid.  In fact I've listened to it a couple of dozen times while blogging tonight.  It never gets old but don't take my word for it, go off and have a listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_ukfGAd8T4

Good isn't it.

Well she's all sorts of wiggly and nice, isn't she!
See what I did there?
It's a more melancholic but no less pleasant vibe.  Although with hindsight I now realise it sound more like the closing theme tune of a cop show than anything too sci-fi.  Imagine a French version of The Sweeny and this would be on the money.
Any way that's enough nonsense for one post, so in case I don't get to talk to you before hand, have a Happy Christmas and fingers crossed for a much better New Year.
Still not over Bowie


  1. The Alien Covenant trailer is just out and yes it does have a quick shot of a spacesuit,now will this be enough to redeem the franchise after Prometheus?,I guess only time will tell but the trailer looks good,oh and merry xmas/happy new year etc..

    1. Same to you Mr Armstrong, sir.
      Yes this looks quite good but then so did Prometheus! I think I'll wait for some rave reviews before I do the cinema, otherwise I'll catch up with it at the DVD stage. Between now and then, I'll hopefully grab some good images and do a blog post or two.
      All the best.
