    Proving very popular on iTunes, a bargain at .99 cent.

    I dunno if anyone has heard of this but in the video games Tomb Raider 2 and Tomb Raider 3 you can play music on the stereo in Lara's house and it's pretty good...anyone know what these pieces are?!

    Looking to find out the name of a piece of music/song from the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. It's at one of the sad parts and has a kind of haunting, female voice (kinda Enya-ish).

    Don't really have any more info, so not holding out much hope for any response. I could just buy the soundtrack, but its pricey enough considering i only want one tune.

    Which of the movies do you hear the most in? Enya did do one of the tracks for the Fellowship of the Ring if I remember correctly.

    Possibly it could also be Golem's Song, which was sung by an Icelandic (i think) woman.

    Emilíana Torrini. It's the end theme of TTT. I've got her five albums and rather like her stuff.

    An aria called Casta Diva from Bellini's opera 'Norma'.

    Is this the current music as this thread is quite old?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,352 funky penguin


    Pretty sure its still the same music.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,718 ✭✭✭ The Mad Hatter


    Oh! Are you talking about the jingle that they use? I always assumed they had made it up!


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭ Doshea3


    I think they mean the music on the radio/television ad they have now for the station. As far as I know the dum-dum-dummm, diddle-dum, dum, dum jingle is their own. I have forgotten who wrote it for them.

    There are 2 ads for Lyric. One is a repeat one with the chap in the car and the other is a new one. It's this one I'm interested in. I know it's the same singer but the track doesn't sound the same?

    Casta Diva from Norma by Bellini, sung by Filippa Giordano

    That's called "The Beach Song" by Hans Zimmer. If you can't get it I'll e-mail you an MP3 of it.

    Cheers mate I have been wondering what it was for years, well just in the back of my mind. I only thought of asking here today, nice one.

    The name of this classical tune has been bugging me for years: it's always used by Sky Sports and other tv stations for trailers for an upcoming clash of titans e.g. like Liverpool vs Man Utd, Tyson vs Holyfield etc.

    it's kind of a march, maybe from an opera and sounds like it could be by Wagner. it has a very recognisable melody in a minor key and features a full symphony orchestra. it's also a little reminiscent of darth vader's 'imperial march' music from star wars.

    For anyone that knows music theory, the main melody goes something like AA CC EE CC AA CC E C, and then the same pattern up a forth DD FF AA FF DD FF A F.

    Any ideas????

    Could it be the Knights' Dance from Prokofiev's ballet Romeo & Juliet?

    anyone know what the piece is in the new ad for the renault magane? The ad itself is a load of car parts whizzing down a hallway and assembling as the car,a yellow sports megane. So anyone know what the piece is?? I was sitting here with my guitar when it came on and I figured out 2 bars from it just because of it's repetitive nature. It's a total shred piece and I'd love to see someone playing it on a violin! Vanessa May, cause she's hot! ahem! thanks! ^^
