"So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish" appears in the 2005 film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The first version of the song "So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish" is a Broadway-style, lively version sung by the dolphins before they leave Earth. The second iteration plays over the end credits, and is in the style of 1950s male singers.
Behind the scenesEdit
The song was written by English composer Joby Talbot, conductor Christopher Austin, and director Garth Jennings and performed by the Tenebrae Choir. Neil Hannon, founder and frontman of the Irish pop group "Divine Comedy", lent his vocals to the version of the song played during the end credits.
The song, in its "bouncy", opening version, was translated into and performed in Spanish for the Latin-American Region 4 DVD release.
The final word 'fish' should preferably be held for 20 seconds.
