I posed this question on a HHGTTG thread on the temporary board but we switched back to SDMB before anyone got around to replying. So I will try again…
As I recall, in one of the later books of “The Trilogy” (perhaps it was So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, Arthur Dent refers to a song by Mark Knopfler that was the most beautiful or best ever written. It is the song he listening to when he forgets that he is falling and ends up floating through the air.
I must know what song Douglas Adams was referring to. Unfortunately Adams went to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe[sup]TM[/sup] before I could ask him myself.
Could one of you towel jockeys consult your Hitch Hiker’s Guide and clue me in on the song? I would be most grateful.
Oh, and thanks for all the fish.
