    Does anybody know what the piano piece is called which goes:
    Db F F Db Db F - - F F Db Db F Gb F Eb then some twiddly bits?
    It was also on top gear earlier tonight during the classic car rally during a shot of James May's car (can't remember the exact time)

    Tried looking but couldn't find, iPlayer is annoying and the slider moves forward when you click it WHERE IT IS which is VERY FLICKING annoying, and it's taken me too long and i can't be bothered now...
    Does someone not recognise it? (play the line on a keyboard or piano it'll be obvious even without the timing)

    You are going to have to be more specific than that. Are those chords? Notes? What the timing on them? :/ Can you hum it or find a clip with it in.

    Keep an eye on this: http://forums.finalgear.com/wts-tg-s...-2009-a-37853/

    Either that or give us the time it appears on iPlayer, so we can have a look what the hell you're on about.

    You don't mean Andare by Ludovico Einaudi, do you? It's the only piano piece that I remember hearing; however I don't even remember if it was during the rally part ... it doesn't sound to me like the notes you have written.

    Some more info about the type of music it was would help? Are you sure it was a Piano? I heard plenty of Hammond Organs and Keyboards too. Were there other instruments?

    I know the one you mean now, it sounds like Brahm's Waltz number 15 - but isn't.

    It's called 'Where Do I Begin?' by Henry Mancini, and was the theme to Love Story. It was clearly influenced a little by Brahm's much earlier Waltz n.15
    Great, I can go back to my life now.

    :awesome:
