Subject: funny instrumental version of 2001 A Space Odyssey?!

Written By: Izod on 10/01/04 at 8:48 pm

Hi ya'll! Anyone know where I can find an audio copy of this? To get a better idea of what I'm looking for - this sounds like an elementary school band trying to play the song, & sounds out-of-tune, & ect. It's hilarious! I've been Google searchin', & have had no luck. Please help. Thanks.

This sounds really good ... I hope someone can help out.. btw are you familiar with the Deotadato version .. not funny but superb.....I had the great pleasure of performing this version with my own jazz funk band  with the whole of a 50 piece brass band joining in  on the big chords and some very funky riffs.and fills . it was orchestrated specially for the gig .. we rehearsed it in the pottery factory (Doulton) whose brass band it was .. in the canteen a  huge room with linoleum on the floor (do you remember what that was??) and hard gloss painted walls the natural reverb was spine tingling!! fantastic!

Wow, I can finally answer one of these.

What you're looking for is "Also Sprach Zarathustra (Theme from 2001)" by The Portsmouth Sinfonia.

I just happen to have this on a Rhino CD (it's the opening track) called "Dead Parrot Society: The Best of British Comedy."

Also seek out (much, much  harder to find) The Temple City Kazoo Orchestra (also, by sheer coincidence, on Rhino)...Also Sprach Kazoostra, performed on kazoos.
