The Flashing Blade

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

The Flashing Blade was a French adventure serial for Saturday morning TV in the seventies and was dubbed for English language. Plenty of sword play and dashing around on horse back. Very energetic theme tune to this one.

    The full lyrics are - You've got to fight for what you want for all that you believe it's right to fight for what you want to live the way we please As long as we have done our best then no-one can do more for life and love and happiness are well worth fighting for.

    I used to watch this and remember also watching White Horses around the same time (also dubbed) That was a very groovy 60's theme tune with a very 80's indie-pop girl-band sounding singer. I think it was released as a single around '68/'69 and the artist was I think, called Jackie? The Flashing Blade theme was superb though...I thought it went "It's right to fight for what you want, for all that you believe" then another line of singing before either a guitar or harpsichord came in with the catchy "deng deng deng-deng-deng deng deng deng-deng-deng"

    The funniest thing I remember about the Flashing Blade was the clips shown on a Saturday morning show called On The Waterfront sometime around 1989-1990. The clips were overdubbed with ridiculous and very funny dialogue, written by Russell T. Davis (writer of Queer as Folk, The Second Coming, Dr.Who etc.)I would love to see these again.
