I have noticed something and wonder if somebody knows: why does the same episodes of Top Gear not the same music? I just found out this site (and forum thread most importantly!) and the songs does not match the ones I have heard watching it. I'm looking for the song played at 50:13 in this episode, unfortunately at this point unknown, but the other songs (e.g. the song before, Diferente) are not the same. To give you a real example I will link to a totally legit site where you can discover that it is not the same: http://gorillavid.in/sys1t493ar2w.
Basically I'm looking for the song that starts at 50:13 on the site provided, but it would be nice if it had an explanation. My thought: could it be different because of the international version (somewhat cut version the BBC provide other countries with) compared to the original? The videos on Youtube provided by BBC seem to match the songs listed here.
Answers are greatly appreciated!
Seems to be that way. Is there a possibility to write down the songs for both these versions? I don't know which version is broadcasted where, but I know that Top Gear has 350+ million viewers, and I would guess not even a tenth of them are from UK. If what you say is true, then my suggestion should not be too revolutionary.Yes, the music licensing rights that the BBC has only applies to their UK broadcasts.
