Johnny Mandel, M*A*S*H [OST] (1973)
We used to sing Suicide Is Painless at primary school. That’s pretty fucked up when I think about it now. This is worth having for the Ahmad Jamal version of the theme – where he got all Bob James Taxi about a half-decade before Bob James got all Taxi. I was a fan of the TV show as a kid, re-runs after school, before tea. But the film? Well that’s a whole other thing isn’t it; a brilliant movie.
