One of my all time favourite animated theme tunes is the excellent Jamie and the Magic Torch. The show originally aired whilst I was only a baby, but thanks to repeats in the 80’s and the very catchy opening credits, I’ve very familiar with this rocky number:
Despite my love for the song, I’ve never before gone on the hunt for cover versions, until now. This Adem Hilmi mellow variant is simply superb, and a little bit scary!
Here’s the lyrics if you’d like to sing-along:
Jamie and the Magic Torch.
Down the helter skelter, faster and faster
Towards Cuckoo Land.
Following hard behind.
Ready for adventure,
Always there to lend a paw …..or hand
Mr. Boo and all the others too,
The strangest people you’ve ever seen.
And the torch with its magical beam
If I hadn’t really been there
I’d think that I was dreaming
No two nights are the same.
And life is one long glorious game with Jamie.
Jamie and the Magic Torch
