I've been playing fallout 3 and whenever I'm in range I tune it to Galaxy Radio. There is one song that they play that I like a lot. It is Boogie Man By Sid Phillips. Problem is that I can't find it in the U.S. Is it available in Europe?

I guess no takers.

It's a mystery song. It's not listed in Tom Lord's Jazz Discography and it appears nowhere on the internet. Neither are there any songs with similar titles that fit.

I want to thank you directing us to Sid Phillips though. I've recently enjoyed djing Ridin' High [1941] and Southern Fried [1940].

I've done a little bit of digging:

Go here and search for it - you'll find the same song with a whole bunch of catalogue numbers. It notes that the composer was Sid Phillips, so there's doubt if he actually recorded it. This is what's in the notes:

Library: KPM
Track Title: Boogie Man
CD#: KPM 224, #43
Track Description: Dance Band - Catchy clarinet feature (Archive recording) (LC02061)
Composers: Phillips, Sid (PRS) (C)
Publisher: KPM APM (ASCAP)
PERIOD >> 30S > 40S

You may be able to purchase off this site - I didn't check.

By the way, check out Sid Phillips's version of Hors d'oeuvres - it is identical to the arrangement that the Big 18 later used.

The other day I was trying to explain swing music to a junior high kid (maybe 13) and wasn't able to come up with any examples that he'd heard of. Finally, I asked him...

me: have you played Fallout 3?
him: yeah
me: it's the music on the radio there
him: oooooh... that's weird music


On a side note, I think the soundtrack is available with certain special editions of the game, and I would suspect directly extractable from the pc version.

Well, to his credit, all the selections do have a certain "weird" feeling to them. They really did do a good job on the selections, even though they start getting repetitive WAY to soon.

Thanks for all the responses. Man, the Ink Spots make me nervous. They are somewhere suspended between greatness and corn dog.
