A while ago, John G of The Two Johns Podcast mentioned the theme tune that they used for the intro and outro: Kraftwerk’s Tour de France.
I was perplexed because I had a copy of this track and it wasn’t the same. Then last week all became clear. John G mentioned that Kraftwerk had recorded a new version for the 2003 centenary edition of the race. Hooray- I went straight out to buy the song!
You can buy the four tracks of the Tour de France 2003 single on Amazon- I prefer this to iTunes because the format is DRM-free mp3.
The live album Minimum-Maximum is cool too. It’s a double CD that features live tracks from a 2004 European tour. All the classics are there with a modern edge.
