Default Automan

Hi,
Wondering if anyone can help...

Christine has an officially registered song called 'Automan' .
That strikes me as being a really odd title for a song.
I do vaguely remember a TV series from the early/mid 80's called Automan. I recall it being the same type of show and at roughly the same time as Air Wolf, Street Hawk and Manimal.
It would have probably been at around the same time as her 'Christine McVie' album.

Does anyone know whether she wrote the theme tune or some other incidental music for it? Otherwise, does anyone have any other information about this song?
thanks

It might be a new song up for consideration on the upcoming album. I like the title; it's intriguing.

I cant think this would be a standard song- it just doesn't sound like a typical song title.
Anyway, some further digging would suggest this isn't a new song for potential inclusion on a new album- it was originally registered in 1990 from what I can tell.

Christine has a lot of songs registered that I do not recognise- many of them co-writes with Eddy Q which I would suggest are unlikely to see the light of day;

Christine McVie
Show Me a Little of Your Love (Leosong Music America) (possibly an early title for Spare Me a Little Of Your Love???)
Rain In The Summertime (Leosong Music America)

I'd guess each of these titles are early 70's songs- I'm not sure whether any other FM songs were registered through Leosong Music America.

Automan (Universal Music)
Body Drumming (Universal Music) (possibly something to do with Mick's drum vest???)
Eye to Eye (Universal Music)
Sally Jessy Raphael (Universal Music) (TV background cues???)
Need Your Love (Universal Music Careers)
Slow Down (Universal Music Careers) (possibly an early title for 'You Are'???)


Christine McVie (co-written with with Eddy Quintela)
Gina (Universal Music)
Ordinary Man (Universal Music)
On Our Own (Universal Music)
I Believe I Believe (Universal Music)
Canít Get Enough (Universal Music)
This Feeling of Love (Universal Music Careers)


Christine McVie (co-written with Billy Burnette & Steve Cropper)
Hooked (Universal Music) (has this appeared on a Billy Burnette record???)

Christine McVie (co-written with Mick Fleetwood)
Nature (Universal Music) (TV background cues???)

Christine has quite a few songs registered that are just names of songs by other artists that sample CM songs (principally samples of Everywhere, Don't Stop, The Chain, Songbird, Little Lies).
