Can anyone help as this has been bugging me all weekend.
There is a piece of music that is often used in UK police dramas and thrillers that is used to build tension towards the end when the hero is about to uncover the killer of the protagonists are running to safety.
It’s an alternative rock instrumental that I think was from the late 1990s or early 2000s and consists of two notes played on a clean sounding electric guitar and a constant bass line that changes throughout. The tune then builds with other instrumentation to a climax.
I heard this on the radio the other day but it cut out to a traffic report before I could find out what it was. It’s very well known but I can’t think for the life of me what it is.
I can remember my rather having this as a 78rpm single nestled somewhere in amongst his Rock ‘n’ Roll singles. I always assumed that he bought these old 78s when he was out in the far East during the Korean War. Judging from the release date it must have been later.
The odd thing is, I always remember this being traditionally middle eastern sounding but it’s not that far off the Pick Of The Pops theme music.
