Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 17 - Do You Want To Be A Hero (Jon Anderson)

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 17:-

Jon Anderson - Do You Want To Be A Hero

Ahhhh... the memories.  I was probably one of the very few people who thoroughly enjoyed the movie "Biggles - Adventures in Time", and this was the main theme tune from it.  I remember it being one of the very first films which I watched on a channel called "Premiere" probably in 1987/88...  This was back in the day when most households only had 4 channels to choose from.  We were fortunate enough to have Sky quite early on, and Premiere was the only movie channel on offer before Sky did their own.

I watched this movie over and over again.  Not sure why though as when I look back at it, the film isn't particularly special. It's just a good ol' time travelling romp - Where else could you see a modern Metropoliton Police helicoptor fight in World War 1?   I believe it was also Peter Cushing's last acting role before passing away a few years later.

Anyway, the song is sung by Jon Anderson (the lead vocalist from Yes).  Enjoy,  and try and watch the film if you've never seen it before.  It's not THAT bad.
