There's a song I've heard on a couple Top Gear episodes on BBC America and when I found this site, I hoped I'd find out what it was. It played in this episode and was listed as a Jimi Hendrix tune and in the Cheap Alfa Romeo Challenge it was listed as Mrs. Robinson and I knew it wasn't either of those. After a bit more sleuthing on the net and a few video clips later, it seems that the US version of the show has some different songs in the soundtrack. Licensing issues perhaps?

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone can help me out and tell me what song this is. Here the US version from the Top Gear America site: http://www.topgear.com/us/videos/more/bikes-in-vietnam-part-3/ The song starts at mark 3:40 as they are heading onto "one of the best coast roads in the world." Thanks!

What is the song right after Richard and James give Jeremy his present? I know there are two different versions of the episode and there are different songs at that part.

Hi

We have the same issue in Australia, depending on what BBC screen here and in the case of the Alfa Challenge where some episodes have Mrs Robinson, but some episodes feature this song (that was also featured in he Vietnam) that can only be described by Shazam as Fat Free Love by Skip Sandoz but searching or this song also turns up nothing?

Has anyone else located the song?

Found it here in a "Czech" dubbed version it is right at the end

Anybody know what song is played in the American/Netflix version at 65:20-66:10?
I've been dying to know and find out, it's gamelan music where they use a bonang. It's quite relaxing and I'd love to listen to the full song. Thanks!

Sadly, it's not Kings of Leon - Crawl, and I don't realy think this song has British origin. Sounds way more american to me. Anyone knows, may be, that song?

55:48 - 56:18 - Stealers Wheel - Stuck In The Middle With You
This is not right. I have listened to it a bunch of times trying to figure out what song is playing here but I know it is not stuck in the middle with you. Can we please revisit this one? It's killing me. The song starts when the three of them are sitting in a restaurant and Jeremy makes fun of Hammond for eating rice. Then James leaves and starts talking about a downed B-52 bomber. During James' narration, the song plays.

Thanks in advance.

Americans! I found the song used in the end at 65:20-66:10, the part where James May's Amphibious bike is getting towed back to shore! It's called "Sanborg" by Giovanni Sciarrino.

It's called "Acid Test" by Micky Moody

Does anyone know the songs for the "great adventures" DVD-version?

I'm especially looking for a song between aprox 47.28-47.51. It has a sort of "Red hot chili peppers"-sound to it.
