    Inspired by Rocketman ... rednecks on Mars improvising everything because Phobos and Deimos have turned out to be aptly named.

    For some reason "Lucifer" evokes in me images of people in command centers talking to field agents.

    I do actually imagine you both dressed in velveteen smoking jackets, sipping Absinthe while puffing on a hookah. You'll be telling me that your secret base in a hollowed-out volcano is made up next. Really!

    Congratulations on reaching 60 episodes, I do hope there's many more to come! I can't get the Red Elvises 'Rocketman' out of my head now - it's such a catchy tune. I'd much prefer 'Lucifer' to be the theme tune to my campaign and I agree with Roger that it's pretty much already a tv theme tune. I could easily see 'Lucifer' being used for a 'Night's Black Agent's' game. Oh, and I agree with Roger, it (Lucifer) does sound more 70's than 80's.

    Released as a single in 1979, so just barely. :)
