Alan's Fact of the Day
Investing a few hours in "assembling" the soundtrack to I'm Alan Partridge is a few hours well spent.
Where else are you going to hear "Music For Chameleons," "Bright Eyes," "Gaudete" and the theme from Return of the Saint in such close quarters? Oh, and I've now decided "Wuthering Heights" by Kate Bush is lovely stuff.
Of course the cheese factor is intense, but that only increases the fun. The soundtrack to Alan's various life crises is toe-tappingly tragic.
Visit this website for the songs in various episodes if you become inclined yourself to burn one. It's a good resource, but where on earth is "The Lumberjack Song" in episode 1-5? An oblique reference maybe? I can't find it in there at all.
