I couldn't work out how to get the site to play it, so I just downloaded it instead.

How can I download the 2 intros?

The RosFest one on this page appears to have a download link next to it.
Don't know about the other one....

The BOTY one is in the TOYS section.
It's not the winning or even taking part. It's the arsing about that counts.

Oh, for gawd's sake, will you just stop making us all feel so bloody inadequate, Mr Godfrey? Next thing you'll tell us is that you knocked that off between passport control and customs on arrival in Amerikky.

But as I was listening, I had an itchy feeling I'd heard something like it before, marching feet against massed strings, archly plummy English vocals, and especially the rise and fall phrasing of the line "where it always raaaaaaaiiins" ...

Ah ha! Anyone else own The Enid's "In the Region of the Summer Stars (1984)"? I'm sure there's a tune on there Jem's intro reminds me of: will have to check at home this evening.

[Oops: edit: must be "Raindown" off "Something Wicked This Way Comes", but which contains at least one re-played track from "In the Region ... (1984)".]

Of course, it only goes to also remind me of a certain shared surname I've always been very suspicious about ... albeit it's very (very) unlikely ... :D

(And bloody hell, a wee google reveals that The Enid have a new album out and are playing three gigs this month: anyone going? I saw them once half a bazillion years ago and thought they were jolly good, even if mightily bombastic).

Thanks, Pedro: must've missed that one.

So what do you reckon re: the Rosfest intro being related at one remove to Raindown?  :D

And I know a Small Boy who'll love it, too, and I suspect will soon (try to) sing "W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L Frooooooooost!" at every opportunity :D
LOL
Try as I might, it deffo sounds more like "W-O-N-D-R-E-F-U-L" to my old ears. Like a delicious theatre->theater exchange-rate thing! :D

Your "old ears" are completely right.
The subtlety missed me first time around; as with so many Frost* lyrics, there's always a bit you don't get until you've listened a few times :D

I wasn't at all sure even after listening several times: weird how the brain works ... but slow it down to 70% speed and it's obvious ...  :D

Yes, but not with good sound. You can watch it on YouTube but it's just a lot of arm-waving and stuff. I think there are moves afoot to try to sort it out but I don't know how it's going.
