Does anyone know the name of Greg James's opening song from 2015?

Recommended Posts

He seems to have changed it now, so I was wondering if anyone knew the name of the song that Greg James always talked over about 2 songs into his show last year. I thought that if anyone knew it, it would be this forum!

Of course, it could be an original song for Radio 1...or it could be an incredibly famous song and I'm an uncultured idiot for not knowing it...

Thanks!

In the later half of last year he used the instrumental of 'Sigma & Ella Henderson- Glitterball' (from 1:39)

He also used the beginning of 'Mumford and sons - The Wolf' and Coldplay - A Sky Full of Stars at one point as well... :)

Surely you are talking about Porter Robinson - Language? Absolute tune.

(listen from 58s)

He used this consistently for a number of years in his first link, (generally talking about what had happened that day before his show). I thought it was a bit of a shame that he changed it!

Legends, all of you. Glitterball was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the Porter Robinson one as well - I'd forgotten how long he used to play it for before the talking kicked in.

Whilst I'm on the forum with other 'fans of Greg James's opening song' (I enjoy it way too much) this is a long shot but has anyone got a recording of one of the times when he used Porter Robinson? Just for nostalgia purposes.

I could just record myself talking over the top of some music but it wouldn't have the same effect.

Seeing as this spambot bumped this thread up, I thought I'd make a montage of a few occasions Greg used the Porter Robinson instrumental to start the show.

I have the first use of it from the 3rd May 2012, then 23rd July 2012 (Greg's first show after Chris Moyles announced he was leaving, to add context to it), 14th September 2012, 7th January 2012 and the last use of it on 9th May 2014.

Oh my - this is a bold claim to make. Who knew Greg James likes to do it to classical music - you heard it here first.
