This trailer may very well have been the inspiration for the American trailer of "The Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy", when it was remade several years back. The trailer itself actually describes exactly what its doing (IE: Title Sequence here, company logo there, etc.), and is rather humorous. But then again it is being done by a comedian, so what else would you expect. The trailer can be viewed below, enjoy.

As I have told you in previous posts, I used to be a DJ. This particular track remained one the largest selling dance tracks of the year in 1983. It was also the third record I ever purchased. When released originally the track did not offer a radio or 7" version, this did not occur until it was remixed in 1988. The records "B-side" was nearly as popular as its "A-side" and was known as "The Beach".
"The Beach" is actually part of the lyrics to Blue Monday, which is where it gets its name from. The Beach proved to be so popular, that it to was remixed in 1988 for the B-side. The remix is known as "Beach Buggy" and is just a non-vocal version of Blue Monday. Okay that was your history lesson for the day, now enjoy John singing it.

It does differ greatly from the movies, as it is presented in an un-edited format (ie: without special effects overlayed). It also follows the style of a music video, and if it was a single the artists name would more than likely have 'featuring John Simm' tacked onto the end of it. Sounds cliche, but is quite appropriate to the video. You'll understand when you've watched it. Any way, enjoy.
