Anybody Knows the Songs Used in S1-S3?

I've been trying to find out some of the songs that were used in BG S1 & just couldn't find them!! Sad

So, if anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it! There was this song that was played in Ep 5 (Tangled Web) when Helen Stewart was driving in her car. It sounded like Oasis but I searched high & low for it that had the lyrics that I heard in that episode to no avail! Crying or Very sad

Also, anyone knows what song was played in Nikki Wade's club when she, Trisha along w/ the rest of her friends celebrated her release?

Thanks in advance for your help!! :D

Song one
Okay this mystery song caused all kinds of grief for a while and finally someone found out in around May 2002.

"Back Against The Wall" By Loveday and Loveday and apparently you could contact the agents Music House International on this telephone number 02074349678.

I have to stress - this isn't a current number of contact since it is now well over 3 years old - so I have no idea if it is still valid.

As for the Club - there was Texas and Tom Jones - not too sure which one you are referring to.

Hope this helps.

As long as we're talking music. I've been trying to figure out who sings this song so I could use it on the N/H Quiz page, but can't figure it out and now it's driving me crazy.
In Series 1, Episode 1 when Helen is laying on the floor (wait let me enjoy that visual for a moment) :D Sean is rubbing her feet and there's a song playing in the background that I swear sounds like Sarah Brightman, but can't find anything using the few lyrics I can make out.
Anyone got a clue?

ccogz! I thought I was the only person asking others what the hell that song was in Helen's car! I too thought it was an Oasis song called "back against the wall" and was trying to sing this song to a few of my friends who are oasis fans! Thank god I am not alone!
The song in the club is by Texas. I am sure the song they were playing was called "in our lifetime". Its on 2 albums. One is called "The Hush" and the other is "Texas the greatest hits". If it isn't In our lifetime it will be one of the other songs on the greast hits album, but im sure it is in our lifefime. The problem is I can't check the Texas song to see if I am right coz when it was shown on tv and on the videos they played texas but on the DVDS they have changed the musis in the background!! I bought the videos when they came out. Then dvds with extras appeared and I bought them and left the videos at my parents. So I hope the info I am giving you is right. Was the Tom Jones song not Sex Bomb? :?

Oh, thank you, guys!!! ILMJN, you're a saviour!!! Never heard of Loveday & Loveday?! Gosh, the lead singer sure sounded like Gallagher from Oasis!! You don't know how much grief we had arguing and debating about who sang it & me, I was dead sure it was Oasis but had to eat my own words after searching practically all the Oasis lyrics online for the words that were sung in the episode and...NADA!!!! :x

Golly, Guest, I know exactly what you're saying there about Oasis & am hugely relieved that I ain't the only one having been racking my brains trying to figure this one song out! Phew! :wink:

Oh, Texas & Tom Jones, eh? Didn't recognize either of them! Sad I know, a pretty sad cow I am, ain't I! Embarassed

My, I just can't thank you enough for your help, ILMJN & Guest!!! Cheers!! :D

Uh-oh, OWH, I'm afraid I've no idea who was singing in the background in the Helen/Sean/rubbing of feet scene....!! Sorry! In fact, we've only been able to figure out some of the music/songs that were used in all 3 series...let's see:

- Macy Gray (S3) - not 100% sure which song yet 'coz most of her songs have similar music beats but will figure it out, by hook or by crook!!
- Staying Alive Remix - don't know who did the remix but trying to dig it now!
- Simon & Garfunkel (S3) - Scarborough Fair
- Amazing Grace (S1) - well, if we didn't recognize that, we'd have no reason to live anymore, do we?!
- Kum Ba Yah (S1-2) - duh!!

That's it - pathetic, ain't it? Embarassed

Hmm.. wonder if anyone of you out there actually managed to recognize ALL the songs/music that were used in the 3 series, eh?

If so, then,... WOW!! I raise my hat & kneel to thee in awe of thy greatness!!!! wow

Thanks for your thoughts, I'll figure it out somehow.
I thought I read somewhere that K.D. Lang's "Constant Craving" is in the background of one of the episodes, but I've never come across it.


ccogz PostPosted: Fri Aug 19, 2005 6:03 pm

Hey OWH, if I manage to figure it out, I'll let you know right away, eh?

Regarding k.d. Lang, they used "Constant Craving" in one of the scenes but changed it to something else (some Jazz music, I think?) Anyway, you can check out the deleted scene where they used kd's "CC" on the DVD set.


Obsessed with Helen PostPosted: Fri Aug 19, 2005 6:11 pm

I have all 6 series on DVD and believe me I've watched the first 3 series a lot and still can't find CC, I thought it was in the scene where Dominic is at Helen's house after they went out drinking, (you know where she says something like, "I've been known for my persuasive powers") but not on my DVD's, no big deal, just curious.
The big deal is that other song that is driving me crazy, if you manage to figure it out, pleassssssssse let me know.
I've tried every on-line data base with the lyrics I can make out, but still nothing.

Well done ILMJN! I stand corrected on the Texas song! I was the guest reply but because I didn't log in it didn't show "fLUMP"! What with me giving the wrong football scores aswell (you were right it was 2-2)! you should all know that information I give out should be received with caution!! Maybe constant craving was on the videos but they changed it on the DVDs??


I love MJNet PostPosted: Fri Aug 19, 2005 7:04 pm

Have fixed the guest thingy - it should have had it only registered users only could post but for some reason, this particular section had escaped!
No more wrong Flump...........

As for the songs - this was a list I compiled with a friend and I know she got at least one song wrong even while listening to the DVD's again! Its easy to do!



ccogz PostPosted: Fri Aug 19, 2005 7:15 pm
