This one's for UK people because of the link. Hopefully it'll be easy for someone as it's a well known track, but i'm racking my brain trying to think what it is.

It's the track playing between 27:05 to 27:45 in the latest episode of Top Gear:

It's John Murphy - Leaving England

It's from the soundtrack to 28 Days Later

If you're looking for any Top Gear music this should be your first port of call

heeelp!!!

okay im looking for a track that i THINK was on skins, but i keep hearing it at work and i really like it!

its quite slowish its got a guitar with quite fast strumming, and a synth, and a man (i think) singing in falsetto, i dont know what hes singing though. It's really atmostpheric and amazing.

its a long shot but if anyone knows that would be grand! Thanks :)

Hey guys,

I've been to a Bob Dylan-themed pub, and there was a great slow down song, but, because of the noise (and alcohol), the only thing I remember is a repeated "I won't let you down" line.

I googled it but it's not Dylan's "Obviously five believers". I was quite sure it was BD's voice, but now...

Any idea?

I doubt if i found the one you're looking for, cause it sounds for me more like Jagger than Dylan, but anyway...

There's also 80's one-hit wonder with the name "I Won't Let You Down"

I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

Unfortunately, it's not the song, andrej. I like the videos you brought, though!

Thanks =)

I saw it on Scuzz channel, video was about an office worker, who dreams of breaking loose, the song was so good in my opinion. The guy goes to an underground club with the performer on stage. Anyone know? :-?

I just posted this on Yahoo Answers but perhaps you guys can help..........

I have hardly any info.... I heard a neighbor playing it really loudly and stupidly didn't record it.

All I can remember is that it slowish rock song, with lead male vocalist. I think it is American but could be wrong.

Towards the end it has a guitar solo.

I think the chorus is just the same phrase repeated over and over.... it sounded like "city on the rocks" or "I'll be there on the...?" but i probably got this wrong.

other lyrics that i think i heard are "always meant for".

I'm pretty sure after the guitar solo, the guy started singing "keep on coming man".

I'll probably got all the lyrics wrong - I've tried searching with the lyrics and nothing is coming up. It's just such an amazing song (from what I can remember!) and would LOVE to know what it actually is.

Any help would be sooooooooooooo appreciated!!!

Also forgot to say... it's most likely from the last 5 years.... 10 years old at the most i would say.

I tried using Shazam but it didn't work because I was too far away...

I NEED HELP:

I don't the name of the artist nor if it's really dance..

but the clues:

The video starts with a man sitting in a room he previously destroyed. He has a long epic beard and starts to undress.. (yeah no kidding) and he has man tattoos.. after the first half, the song wins in speed.. (the singer actually only raps and sounds british) and then the video goes on backwards, showing us how he destroyed the room in the first place.. (he destroyed a huge clock, a typewriter and a glass and a chair..)

the singer/band starts with an A... could be A lec or a Tec or something like this.

please i cannot find it. can anybody help me?

I think the title is something like you will be here, or will be here..

It goes something like this:

I slept with your borther

chorus:
I wish(?) so pretty
Vocals are very distorted on the chorus. it gives my Yeah Yeah Yeah vibes or something similar to that, I think it's a newer song!

But it's a vocal Dubstep song
