Sometimes you discover why an unsung/recorded song has achieved that status. Jerry Goldsmith's monumental score to the 1976 sci-fi pic LOGAN'S RUN doesn't seem like a natural for a pop love song, but there is sheet music evidence of the love theme with lyrics by Goldsmith's wife, Carol Heather called "As We Follow the Sun"

Our intrepid singing sight-readers, Stephen Van Dorn and Rena Stober try to tackle this one and barely come out alive.

We did discover a brave soul who wrestle it it before us... on a ukulele!

This is part of a series of performances of obscure sheet music from the collection of Richard Kraft who makes a guest appearance at the end. Mike Farrell plays the piano.

LOGAN'S RUN (As We Follow the Sun) lyrics by Carol Heather

Here is a link to a checklist of Sheet Music from which this was chosen.

Hope you enjoy.

No offense to the singers, but I'd love to hear a solo piano version^^.

Zoom ain't no chopped liver.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Clearly there is something about this song the brings out the best in all of us!

Hey, that's none other than our own Neil Shurley, the founder of The Cult of Jerry!

Hi everyone ...

Just saw this thread, with the lovely ukulele cover version of the Logan's run music ...

Wanted to let you know that I am doing my own cover version of this music. It's actually going to be the TV theme music plus the love theme, and with a friend singing the vocals for both.

As it seems there are no official versions of these with the lyrics (apart from contributors to this thread and their ukuleles wink ) we will be improvising of course. The style is going to be all retro-80's synthpop, and yes, Logan's fans, I will be including the classic Atari asteroids laser "pew pew pew" bit.

Neil: Thanks for posting your ukulele bits, it helps to have a reference for doing the lyrics.
