Fraggle Demo Theme: Take A Roll Down A Hole...

    Someone from MC was kind enough to send me the mp3 of this theme version and I'd just like to know more about it. All I know about it is that it is possibly the first original testing copy of the Opening Theme and it has the lyrics:
    Take a roll down a hole and you know that you're soon gonna be there.

    Take a skip -

    Take a drip -

    Take a slip -

    And what do you see there?
    Does anyone know anything else about this version that they can share?

    Yes, it was the original theme of the show. Terry Angus' talked about it in his MC interview.

    Do you have it to share with others? I would love a piece of FR history. Does anyone know anything else about this version that they can share?

    That's pretty cool. Kinda neat too how although it didn't survive to the actual show, parts of it did find their way into the extended version of the theme song, and the revised theme song of the final episode. I think I'll definately be singing these new words when that instrumental portion of the extended theme song is playing.

    Too bad there isn't a better quality recording of it. The vocals were somewhat 'washed out'. I would've used it to make a remix.

    Ooh, a remix would have been cool. If I ever find a better recording of it, I'll send it your way. :)

    In the extended version of the Fraggle Rock theme song on the 2 record album set several years ago, there was an extra bit of instrumental that sounded a bit like some of the end-theme was blended in, but also this "Roll down a hole" part reminds me of that, as well. Connections, ya think?

    Yeah that's the one I was referring to in my last post. It's definately the same notes, they just chose not to use the lyrics for whatever reason. Maybe they decided it was a bit too silly - strayed too far from the true intent of the show?

    I think this thread should be unstuck, Because whoever released the ORIGINAL theme tune is going against the wishes of the person who gave it to them.

    And could get the person into trouble.
