Peter Kay’s Car Share

Level headed Assistant Manager John is paired with ditsy Promotions Rep Kayleigh and we watch the pair fill awkward silences with laugh out loud comedy as they drive to and from work.

Theme Tune

Billy Ocean – Red Light Spells Danger
 
Red light spells danger,
Can’t hold out much longer
‘Cause red light means warning,
Can’t hold out I’m burning
 
No, no, no,
You took my heart and turned me on
And now the danger sign is on
Never thought the day would come
When I would feel alone without you
 
And now I’m like a child again
Calling out his mama’s name
You got me on a ball and chain
Doin’ things that I don’t want to
 
I can’t stop running to you,
Feel love coming through you
Girl, with you beside me,
Hold on heaven guide me
 
Red light spells danger,
Can’t hold out much longer
‘Cause red light means warning,
Can’t hold out I’m burning
 
Red light spells danger,
Can’t hold out much longer
‘Cause red light means warning,
Can’t hold out I’m burning

Theme Tune

Crazy for You – Madonna

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smokey air
Can’t you feel the weight of my stare
You’re so close but still a world away
What I’m dying to say, is that

I’m crazy for you
Touch me once and you’ll know it’s true
I never wanted anyone like this
It’s all brand new
You’ll feel it in my kiss
I’m crazy for you, crazy for you

Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I’m deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you’ll see

Trivia

Despite being a Peter Kay comedy, the radio heard throughout the series is not Chorley FM, the fictional radio channel created for That Peter Kay Thing (2000) and used in Phoenix Nights (2001) and Max & Paddy’s Road to Nowhere (2004). This may be due to the fact a real Chorley FM had been on air since 2006.

Trivia

Peter Kay was not asked to take the role; he was asked to look over the script, and, being very pleased with it, eventually wound up in the main role.

The Fiat 500L used in Peter Kay’s hit TV sitcom Car Share will be sold to raise funds for charity after being listed for sale on Dealer Auction by Piccadilly Motors.

The iconic Fiat MPV will be sold on January 27 to raise money for charities Candlelighters and Martin House Hospice, with all of the sale proceeds going directly to the Knaresborough-based car dealer’s two chosen charities.

Purchased at a previous auction by Piccadilly Motors, the famous Fiat is currently live on the platform and includes the car door that was knocked off in the final series – signed by the show’s stars Peter Kay, Sian Gibson and the crew.

Simon Watts, managing director at Piccadilly Motors, said: “I bought Peter Kay’s Car Share Fiat 500L at auction with the intention of raising a substantial sum of money for our chosen charities.

Trivia

The Fiat 500L was chosen for the program because the dashboard was deep enough to mount the mini cameras used for filming.

Quote

Kayleigh: “The only hell I know is standing in the middle of an aisle trying to get people to sample my Mini Cheddars.”

Ray the Fishmonger: “We’re a dying breed! There’ll always be fish, but there won’t always be fishmongers. It’s a sad fact. Kids today, they don’t want fishmongery as a trade. They want Ugg boots and a wrap of whizz.”

John: “If me Dad ever saw a hearse he used to have to hold his collar until he saw a four-legged animal.”
Kayleigh: “How annoying.”
John: “You’re telling me. He was an undertaker, got sod all done.”

Quote

Kayleigh: “My problem is, my clock’s ticking now and my eggs are already nearly past their use-by-date. If I don’t get a spurt on, they’ll be whoopsed!”

Kayleigh: “Sushi isn’t fish, John. It’s wrestling.”

Kayleigh: “I was sat in my onesie picking crisps out of me teeth, thinking, ‘I bet Beyoncé doesn’t do this.’”

Trivia

Sian Gibson cites that the show effectively relaunched her acting career; before taking on the role of Kayleigh, Gibson had been working in a call centre due to it becoming difficult to get roles.

Theme Tune

Come Back My Car Share Buddy


Hiding from the past and locked up inside
I thought my heart was safe and then you arrived
I never knew I needed someone like you
To lift the grey away and turn my skies blue

You changed my world to colour
Turned off the black & white
You changed my life
You opened up my eyes so…

Come back my car share buddy
I don’t think life is fair
Come back my car share buddy
I’m lost now you’re not there

The road is oh so lonely
It feels like someone died
I’m so lost you’re not with me
Please won’t you let me be your ride

I didn’t understand that love could be true
But then you told me how much I mean to you
And never thinking that we’d end up apart
I sat and watched you walk away with my heart

Now I don’t want to lose you
But I just need some time to do what’s right
To figure out my life so…

Come back my car share buddy
I’m empty now you’ve gone
Come back my car share buddy
The journey seems so long

I find it hard to say it
But I’m feeling it inside
I’m so lost you’re not with me
Please won’t you let me be your ride

Are you gonna ride with me tomorrow?
Are you help me down this long and lonely road?
Cos all I know is I don’t want you to go so…

Come back my car share buddy
I won’t give up on us
Come back my car share buddy
Please don’t catch the bus

Misheard Lyrics

One of the highlights from his record-breaking Tour That Didn’t Tour Tour in 2010 and 2011 was his ‘misheard lyrics’ sketch. This has to be my personal favourite YouTube Clip EVER!! 

Favourites include Take That’s ‘wash your back’ in ‘Back for Good’, Sister Sledge wanting to ‘staple the vicar’ in ‘We Are Family’ and Michael Jackson telling his lover their ‘burgers are the best’ in ‘You Are Not Alone’.

A. Hydroflax
B. Abzorbaloff
C. Vashta Nerada
D. Judoon

QUIZ 2

On a Now 48 CD given to John from Kayleigh as a present. Which track on the CD did she get him to play to show her feelings towards him ?

A. What Took You So Long : Emma Bunton
B. The Way You Make Me Feel : Roman Keating
C. Whole Again : Atomic Kitten
D. Pure and Simple : Hear’Say

At the end of series one, when it looks like the two are no longer going to be car sharing together, John gives Kayleigh a heart lamp as a goodbye gift. Kayleigh’s present to John is a copy of Now 48 and a Post-It note telling him to play track 2, Hear’Say’s Pure and Simple, because the lyrics remind her of him. As he drives off singing along (“wherever you go, I’m going to be there…”) his grinning face says it all.
