Thames TV Olympic Theme

Thames TV Olympic Theme 3:58
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on:
Unreleased
Both Brian May and Roger Taylor were approached by UK television station Thames to produce music for the 1988 Olympic games. Ultimately, neither one of their themes were chosen. Roger's theme features no vocals and is synthesizer and drum based (think of his work Strange Frontier, Killing Time, etc). Roger's theme is a bit more repetitive than Brian's, but superior in my opinion.

Band Du Lac

Band Du Lac is an occasional all-star charity band lead by Procol Harum lead singer Gary Brooker. The group has semi-regular concerts for charity purposes and features all star special guests. The June 6, 2005 concert took place at the Wintershall Estate in Surrey, UK to aid HASTE (Heart And Stroke Trust Endeavour). The all-star guests included Eric Clapton, Ringo Star, Katie Melua, and Roger Taylor. Roger performed three tracks, singing lead vocals, and joined the all-star band for the finale. The concert was released on DVD in 2006.

Absolutely Anything is a 2015 comedy sci-fi film starring Simon Pegg. The movie did not perform well at the box office and was generally panned by critics. Roger Taylor provided a song by the same name for the film. The song, as it is used in the film, is short; it is unknown if a longer version exists. Stylistically, it is similar to other tracks from the Fun On Earth album (think Smile and Quality Street). There was no formal soundtrack to the film that was released, so this track remains unavailable.
