Anybody Knows the Songs Used in S1-S3?
Hi!

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?
Thanks

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??

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!

Shocked

Does anyone know the two songs playing when Dominic shows up
unexpectedly at Helen's flat?? They sit down in her living room and
there is a wonderful song playing in the background. Would appreciate
any info. Thanks.

Ok gang, bump! <bumpbumpBUMP!>

Nudge.


This is the song playing during S1ep4 scene 1, where Helen gives Dominic a lift:








This is the scene from the original broadcast:

Now, I am not pop-music-girl-maven. But someone out there will know this. Riiiight? (This is a good time to make grateful noises, btw. Feel free to throw Theoretical flowers, bits of chocolate, etc.)

(Ok, ok, I'm not taping these myself but a good friend is, so I'll even share the flowers. Hey! No thumbtacks, that's cheating.)

And... doesn't the scene feel weird after you've seen it with, then without the music? Like, obviously empty? Augh!

It's a VOB file, it's the opening credits with H driving in to work & Dom picking through Rachel's belongings, up through the photo of Baby Sans Eyeballs. It's simply the clip from the original broadcast, with the original soundtrack--Walking on Sunshine. The first clip is longer, of the intro to ep 4 with an unidentified song. --e

Hey e, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the two versions, the relative merits of the song choices on the original broadcast vs the dvds, what we miss in the dvd version (a level of irony perhaps?). I've never been a viewer particularly attuned to soundtracks (which is strange, because I think of myself as being very musical, but I guess it's because I'm not that into pop music), so I don't necessarily feel qualified to jump in on this subject.

I thank you for asking me (was it my painfully forlorn tumbleweed?) & I'd like to get a discussion going but was hoping to hear from others first (so we're kinda in the same boat) because I'm *so* allergic to this song it's hard to overcome my feelings (apologies, I'm sure there are people on the board who like it, it's just not my thing). But I'm guessing we can agree on this: it's relentlessly chipper. So yeah, as you said, I'd have to say my basic observation stands, Walking on Sunshine seems a deliberate, very heavy-handed bit of irony, given we're talking about the mood after Rachel's death. Presumably part of the idea is that life-goes-on, and things like irritating pop tunes do tend to punctuate things (as it were), like it or not. Ahem.

As for the other tune, I'm really hoping for more help with that from other people, one of the reasons I posted it. The soundtrack is low so you have to turn it way up; it sounds like another diva-type pop-tune to me, I don't imagine its Meaning is very heavy on any measurable scale except subatomic.

But in general, it does seem the music in Helen's apt (during the talk with Sean in ep1--different there too) & throughout, esp around Helen, is, thus far, ALL women's voices. I don't think that's Shed saying anything significant about Helen's sexuality, there are loads of people (especially women) who simply like listening to women sing, & prefer it to men. Most of them are straight. So that's bollocks. But in terms of just kinda... I don't know, texturing, layering the mood? I am finding it oa much subtler, much more effective than the stuff on the DVDs. So now I've got to get myself an Original Broadcast set of discs.

;)

But I knew THAT all along.


ps: JAMBF says the women who sang Walking in Sunshine is a dyke.

I'm still stunned at hearing Walking on Sunshine in that scene. How bizarre. That's from like way back in the early 80s.

So what are we to make of this? :eek

Either Helen listens to the Golden Oldies station and has musical taste stuck back in her teen yrs. (a sign of repressed or arrested development?) or it's just most likely a matter of the morning drive radio programme being all upbeat and hideously chipper (and, therefore, in highly ironic contrast to Dom's sad task.)

This difference in broadcast music as opposed to what is allowed on dvds just hit me again while watching the second season of "Sugar Rush" and just knowing that the David Gray, KT Tunstall, et. al. topical hit songs of the moment in the club scene will never make it to dvd.

It makes a pretty big difference in the way the show feels, to my mind, esp since SR has an almost constant musical soundtrack, and the DVD choices were so lame.

Well, the good news is that this week's clip (from our mystery friend & helper!) is the Constant Craving one. I couldn't get the aspect ratio right on my computer, not a thing I can control or suggest how others might get it looking right. Wound up using Nero Showtime & using their "force aspect ratio" feature; 5:3 (though it's a bogus ratio) did seem to work, fwiw.


File size is ~70meg.
