Top Gear (UK) has excellent music. I often hear cool clips of songs while watching. Normally, this is a problem, but not in this case. There’s a forum where people identify all music used on Top Gear, and it’s an incredible resource.
Case in point: at 29:07 in episode 1 (of season 16), a compelling song was playing in the background while Jeremy reviewed the Skoda Yeti. I just had to know what that song was. So, I jotted down the time on a postit. Later, I went to the forum post for this episode and found it was Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Barry Adamson, from his Oedipus Schmoedipus album. Listen for yourself to the right.
