    This is mine...



    I've cut it to go straight into the strings at 5 seconds. Then, from the end of the intro at 15 seconds, it segues into the epic ending from 3:20 onwards. ​

    The entrance of The Swan from Camille Saint-Saens 'Carnival of the Animals'.

    I recently changed it from Frigging in the Rigging by the Sex Pistols.

    What a fantastic association. Love it!


    Catchy! I don't think I've seen the video before. Funny - I kind of recognised Durdle Door even before they showed the arch.


    Ooh - that's very Eighties-sounding.

    Oh nice. These are so evocative and give a nice picture of a Swinging Sixties tinged world.


    Ha. Funnily enough, up until this morning I had this as my ringtone:



    Maybe I could get into assigning different tones for different callers like you. Not that my phone ever really rings.

    The UEFA Champions League Theme, it's a fantastic piece of music, reminiscent of music by Handel.

    Ivor Slaney won an Ivor Novello award for the theme to The Sentimental Agent. Ivor Slaney composed the theme to ITC’s Sir Francis Drake ( I use that one for a first cousin once removed I like) and incidental music for ITC’s Man of the World, which had a theme composed by Henry Mancini.

    Some of them can be found on this CD release.

    Many of the series on this double CD release have their own original multi CD original soundtrack releases on CD and others are on vinyl. Danger Man is done in two separate volumes, spanning the jazz style double CD release for the fast-paced half-hour episodes shot from 1959-60 and then the harpsichord-led tracks for the episodes shot from 1964-66. Network (network on air.com) occasionally do sales with 40% or 50% off the marked cover price.

    I’ve been experimenting with using Edwin Astley’s opening to ITC’s The Adventures of Robin Hood as my message alert tone.

    The "Dallas" Theme (what else?) from the Closing of the Miniseries. It´s funky and brassy, there is no way I can´t hear it!

    Seriously thinking about switching to this fun tune:



    Filip Hammar plays loud cheerful music at the snobby Stockholm City Library.

    This colleague and best friend, Fredrik Wikingsson, later arrived dressed in Salvation Army outfit to honk a little.

    I've gone back to using an edited version of this track (from 2:59 onwards in the video, but I've added a few seconds of the piano intro too):

    That’s my favourite version, with the 1979-80 season coming in second.

    I’m thinking of changing my ringtone to the theme from The Colbys.


    One time I was with Colin Baker and his phone rang with the theme tune to Doctor Who’s 23rd series (starring him!) and he said that one of his daughters put it on.

    My first customized ringtone was the theme from the shower scene in "Psycho". I had to change it...imagine why.

    Just changed mine to the stirring finale of the 1812 Overture with added on dubbing of me on the recorder. I don't really know how it sounds because nobody ever rings me.
