Paul Mc Douglas – Theme From “Dallas” (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 13th, 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Re-Rip Remastered First Time In 24bit!

It was a Sunday night, April 2nd 1978, that TV history changed forever when a new five part mini series made its debut on CBS. That show was Dallas, created by David Jacobs and went on to become the most sucessful show in the history of television.

Who ca forget Friday nights in the 80’s gathering around the TV set to watch the weekly antics of the Ewing clan. For me and my family it was a weekly ritual as it was for a lot of people.

Tonight on TNT (US) “Dallas” re-emerges 20 years later with an all new series. In the original 1978–91 series of Dallas, J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) and his brother Bobby (Patrick Duffy) fought each other over the future of the family oil business. In TNT’s remake, they’re back, but now J.R.’s son John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Bobby’s adopted son Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) are fighting each other over the future of the energy industry—John Ross a dedicated, hungry oil driller, Christopher an evangelist for alternative fuel sources. But it still all comes down to scheming, shooting and sex. Larry Hagman (J.R.), Patrick Duffy (Bobby) and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) all reprise their original roles for the new series.

I always loved the theme song and it is one of televisions most memorable. I don’t really know much about this particular 12″ except that I love it and it is pretty hard to find. Paul Mc Douglas had another single that you may remember called “Geil” in 1986.

The track was produced by Tess also known as Fancy who also did the 1986 remixes of “West End Girls” and “One More Chance” by Pet Shop Boys.

    Jesus… I never knew this existed and would never think to look for such a thing.

    God, it’s completely fabulous – it sounds just like Big Daddy Of The Rhythm by Dead Or Alive.

    Shouldn’t it be Paul McDouglas BTW? (no space)

    Think they just typeset it like that coz they were using all capitals. No real McName has a space in it AFAIK.

    Not sure it shows Mc Douglas on his “Geil” 12″ as well. It’s that way on the record label too.
