02nd April 05 : Hitchhiker's movie soundtrack is now on Itunes ! + Free screening of the movie in UK + other news


Incredible but true : the CD will be avalaible at the end of the months, but Itunes (Apple online music store) already features the complete soundtrack record with 33 songs. Joby Talbot has wrote of course most of them and you've got other songs by Betty Wright and Al Green. You've got instrumental music and vocal songs. The more amazing one is "Reasons to be miserable" sung by Stephen Fry! This is a reprise of one of the old Marvin's songs sung by Stephen Moore (the original Marvin in the radio and TV series) which were released in 1981.

You can go on Itunes and listen to extracts of all the songs. Or download some tracks or the whole record for a good price. To go on Itunes, you need to download the free program on Apple (for Apple OS X and Windows 2000 and XP). Then go on the online shop once installed and search for 'Hitchhiker's guide" in your local online shop (there are several versions of Itunes store according the country you live in).
