YodaWiki : Music

The reason for me knowing so much about the origin of the music is the huge help of John Mills-Cockell, who made all the fantastic score. The band "Dark Room", which Jim Gray was part of, at least played the music for "They can see in the dark" (they're seperatly mentioned under "featuring actors" in epsisode 4). The band parted in 1988 but it's quite sure that Jim Gray left them a little earlier and was then part of other bands. The orchestral music was played by a group of studio musicians in Toronto at "Manta Sound", they were conducted by Mr. Mills-Cockell and he also played additional music using different synthesizers. Allarcom Ltd. was responsible for cutting the music into the pictures. The little group of orchestra musicians in the series is the Old Strathcona marching band from Edmonton, the music they played was again scored by John Mills-Cockell. The lyrics for the famous title song were written by Richard Nielsen, who did the screenplay, the music was made by Jim Gray together with John Mills-Cockell. There are two Versions of the song: The short version, which was the main theme during the opening, contains only one stancer and the refrain, is slower and features different instrument than the long version, which is played during episode 4 when Anton and Rudiger visit Lumpi on the roof. You can make up a third version when you add the intrumental track at the end of each show. The long track could be found on a german compilation called "I remember II" (as found in the MID music data base) or I remember, A travel in time II by SPV GmbH and Synthetic Symphony but it is completely sold out everywhere. Perhaps you can still get copies somewhere on the web (e.g. eBay), or you're lucky in any other way!
Unfortuneatly, though I did find (serious) traces of Jim Gray and/or Dark Room, I never managed to contact any of them. But if you want to get in touch with John Mills-Cockell (he still makes music even for theatre, tv shows and movies) you can do this through his website, the address is (as you can imagine) located under links.


And for YOU it is possible: You can download the title song "They can see in the dark" and some other soundfiles from the website of my friend Andy (http://www.gruft-der-vampire.de) legally and for free! Click here to get there directly!

Note that you leave yodahome.de by using this link, it is NO PART of my site!!!

The lyrics of "They can see in the dark"


After our blood, freezes the flood
All through the night and gifted with sight -
to see in the dark
They can see in the dark
You know they can fly, can fly oh so high
Live under the earth and gifted from birth
They can see in the dark
They can see in the dark
Vampires, vampires
They can see in the dark
They can see in the dark
All through the night and gifted with sight
Vampires

After our blood, freezes the flood
With dangers at hand cry out through the land
They can see in the dark (background: vampires can)
They can see in the dark (background: vampires can)
Vampires, vampires
They can see in the dark
They can see in the dark
With dangers at hand cry out through the land
Vampires, vampires

You know they can fly
Can fly oh so high
If you see one tonight
Don't put up a fight
Make peace while you can
Make a friend if you dare
A friend who can fly
Can fly oh so high
And see in the dark
And live under the earth
Make a friend if you can
Of vampires

Vampires, vampires, vampires...
Vampires can
They can see in the dark
