Another song that was used in a TV series – written specially for it – was Jethro Tullâs Coronach, the theme tune for a Channel 4 series on British History called Blood of the British. I liked it so much I bought the single. As I recall Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow was the B-side.
Edited to add:- I just found my original embedding was of a video that had been taken down. I’ve swiched it for a new one which shows views of Scotland – starting with St Andrews Cathedral.
Another single I bought in Bexhill-on-Sea; this one a couple of years after The Happenings.
It was the first big hit for Jethro Tull, coolly if somewhat archaically named after the improver of the seed drill, fronted by a trampish looking guy who sported a codpiece and played the flute while standing on one leg.
Rock and roll?
Apparently the band quickly came to hate this song and didn’t play it on stage for what amounted to decades.
