THE GOODIES GREATEST HITS

by Andrew Pixley

 

(from C&G #63  March 2001)

 

After a couple of enquiries concentrating on the incidental music and songs heard in "The Goodies", I thought that a compilation of the information available on the BBC shows might be of use.  What follows is the information logged by the BBC on their programme-as-broadcast information sheets for each programme, listing all the specific cues where they are catalogued.  Unfortunately, some episode simply refer to "Incidental Music" (generally by Michael Gibbs in Season One) or "Background Songs" (e.g. 'The Commonwealth Games') or "Goodies Instrumental" (e.g. 'The Movies').  I am omitting "The Goodies - Almost Live" which is a music special and which has been thoroughly documented elsewhere, and also live performances of familiar songs by the cast in the context of the episode.  The listing is incomplete, but I'm sure will be a starting point for a more detailed and dedicated listing.  All items are composed by Bill Oddie, sometimes with a co-composer.
