Heard a programme on the radio the other day, about library music - heard all the time over stuff on TV etc, but never credited. Hailing from the 1960s lots of it is instantly familliar & some pieces end up as theme tunes to regular shows - the Grandstand theme being an obvious one. The KPM music library is one that has put out LPs of such music. Now, here's the difficult bit...There's a particular piece very often used over footage of the Monaco Grand Prix in the 60s, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill etc. And that's the piece I've always wanted a recording of, but how on earth do I identify it? Any ideas? 8)

library music and unreleased music can be very difficult to get a hold of as its copyrighted very heavily and companies are often paying bollock loads of money (ie more than 99c on itunes) for the rights to it so its not the kind of thing that gets released very often- do you have a youtube or something of the track you're talking about?

I think this may be what you're after Lofty.............

http://wn.com/1960_Monaco_Grand_Prix

Incidental music to the documentary of the making of the film "Grand Prix",composed by Maurice Jarre (Jean Michel's dad).Not library music,but i think this is what you mean.

That was a great film, very underrated & one of my favourites. Not the music I was after I'm afraid LD, but I see why you thought it might be :wink:

Well, after a lot of poking around in the darkest recesses of YouTube...I found it by accident! Probably because there was a nice picture of an aeroplane with it :roll: It was one from the KPM library, Composed by Neil Richardson & titled The Riviera Affair (& used for a few different things over the years by the looks of it) So, picture Monaco in '68 & turn up the volume.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmMYAN7Tss4

Gorgeous :D

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

if you use a site like such: http://www.video2mp3.net/
you can convert a youtube to an mp3- and then somehow make the mp3 your ringtone- im not sure how your particular phones work but im sure theres some way you can do it
