A number of classic singles have featured in the award winning BBC TV show Absolutely Fabulous, including tracks by Lulu ("The Boat That I Row"), The Animals ("We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place"), and Suzi Quatro ("Can The Can", "Devil Gate Drive"). The theme song is a reworking of Julie Driscoll's "This Wheel's On Fire".
However, the show has generated two hits which were comprised of show dialogue and new vocals set to dance beats. The first, "Absolutely Fabulous" by Absolutely Fabulous was a huge chart hit in the UK, for which star Jennifer Saunders recorded additional dialogue whilst the Pet Shop Boys (for it is they) used snatches from Series One of the show as the main body of their inspiration.
The second single, "I Am Thin & Gorgeous", was produced by Junior Vasquez and follows the same recipe as the first - show dialogue and dance beats.
"Absolutely Fabulous" stars Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Jane Horrocks, Julia Sawahla and June Whitfield. A vast array of guests have appeared on the show including Emma Bunton, Elton John, Marianne Faithfull and Lulu.
The BBC smash hit show has also been affectionately received in the United States.
