A couple of days ago I was watching some fantastic figure skaters on ice who were practicing their moves for  a dance sequence for the forthcoming Olympic Games.

I was listening to their music -and strangely enough it sounded like the opening bars of The Eve of the War'. Was I imagining this?

If I was , it has cetainly has made me realise that TWOTW music would be perfect or ice figure skaters...

Q: Has Jeff been approached to use some of this music for the Games this coming year?

All hugs xxoxx

Wishfull (and AWESOME) thinking, the olympics are spectacular already, but they need a hint of Martianess to invade the stadium. I went there on a trip, and we walked along an old drainway for the first flushing toilet, made by a clever, albeit revoltingly named man, Thomas Crapper, and there are some 'Martian' structures, so maybe Jeff was a designer on it. Any official news on the matter, anyone?

I doubt jeff would be a designer - he would maybe authorize the use of martian structures.

As for ice-skating you have to skate to music that has no lyrics and is about 3min long. This means that if you edited it the eve of the war is more than possible to ice dance to.

By Martian structures, I do, of course mean, they look as though they were designed by Martians, namely the actual flame pit, it looks like a Martian building, not the structures that appear in the tour, although I didn't quite put that down clearly enough in my last comment

I am still dreaming of that ethereal skate to Forever Autumn.....and of course The Red Weed- a beautiful music piece.
