 THE THEME FROM  BRUSH STROKES

brush_strokes.jpg

When sit-com "Brush Strokes" first aired on BBC1 in 1986 it featured a short extract from the Dexys recording "Because Of You" over the opening credits. However by 1990 Kevin Rowland had rerecorded this short section of the song - complete with a curious lyrical change - for use on the later series.

The Proclaimers have often given credit to Dexys for the influence they had on the Scottish duo's formative years. In a BBC documentary broadcast in 2001, Kevin Rowland repays the compliment, expressing his appreciation of the Reid brothers' music.
