    James May's Cars of the People: Music Identification Thread

    The discussion thread is getting a bit off-topic so use this thread instead please for music discussion.
    My Cars: 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 convertible (summer weekend car), 2001 Ford Mustang GT coupe (winter car & grocery getter)
    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.
    - Motor Trend on the 2006 Dodge Viper Coupe, November 2005

    As in the other thread: Also wondering the name of that jazzy number during the Mazda/kei car segment. I think it also played during the closing part of the segment.

    Edit:

    Okay, it starts at 39:31, right when James says "I wonder what became of the Uchiyama Manufacturing Corporation's automotive division?" (camera moves down to show "Mazda")

        The same jazz piece is at 21:15 for a minute or so.

          It strangely sounds like a slowed/trimmed down jazz version of 'Alberto Balsam' by Aphex Twin. Still no idea what it is though.

            Episode 3 has just finished.

            I watched this with the BBC subtitles ON.

            They showed , for example, that the closing credits music was "Keep the Car Running" by the excellent Arcade Fire.

            So, if you want to decode the music, try watching a version with the original BBC subtitles on. However, I think they are a bit spotty and didn't seem to cover every little bit of music played throughout episode three.

            Hope this helps a bit.

              I was looking for some of the music played when he was driving the Countach around and when the 911 was against the little Peugot Especially one kind of fast paced one with a Guitar solo, definitely heard on some of Clarkson's own videos too! Cheers!

                    It's the Clash - Straight to Hell. I have a post in the moderation queue saying M.I.A. - Paper Planes. The MIA song samples the Clash song.

                                  Pearl Jam - Alive

                                  If anyone wanted to make me happy, they could ask "What's that cool song between 5:06 and 5:30?" I'd happily answer it's Tom Waits - Clap Hands

                                    Hoping this thread will have the first post edited to be the same format as the regular TG: What's That Song? threads... I may have to rewatch to contribute. Anybody else get the feeling that the old music director for Top Gear from the first 10 or so seasons was brought back for this project?

                                      In case anyone asks (because it's a great track), Episode 3's 41:51 - 43:17 is Long Line of Cars by Cake.

                                        Episode 3: 28:40 sounds an awful lot like "Who's Johnny" for some unfathomable reason. And at 29:13 it's "Jump" by Van Halen

                                        Hope that helps a little.
