Back with the boys again would be my favourite tune, however the goosebumps I had when Breaking Away played at the 30th convention will always mean the most.

The four original songs will always be what identifies the program to me... 'Thats living alright' defines it perfectly..

Am I the only one who prefers that funky laidback boogie-woogie arrangement of That's Livin Alright (as heard in The Fugitive) to the original version? :shock: :oops: :?
