    5. Spain: We Are The Ocean – Lucky Ones



    Just a minor correction: the Turkey 2011 song is The Consequence by You Me At Six (wrong way round, see). Also, they used Ace of Spades by Motorhead in the 2010 mini-review along with Witchcraft and Sound of Madness.



    Yeah, for some stupid reason for all the 2011 ones I put the artist’s name first. lol And thanks for including the end of season review, I forgot about that one! :)



    Reviving this thread as the Canada race edit is up!

    And I have a dilemma.

    The second song is easy – it has searchable lyrics. The song is If You Don’t Like by Cinderella. But the first song is one of those classical-OST-derived songs. Can anyone figure out what it is?



    3 days later and I still don’t see an official Canada race edit up.



    They took it down hours after it was put up. Hasn’t been back since. Just like Malaysia, there may be an issue with the song/s used.



    some truly awful pop song to accompany possibly the most manly sport in the world!

    Eh? Really, I wouldn’t say driving an F1 car classes as manly. There are tons of sports that are more manly. Like….Bowls. Hearing the grunts when you get it closest to the yellow jack makes the testosterone that builds up go off the scale!!!



    I think it’s good they vary the songs a bit. Like GQsm says it would be so boring having Indie Rock songs again and again.



    I think Watercolour was best placed as it accurately reflected the build up and anti-climax of the race.



    Tom, the song for Italy 2011 was On Fire by New Device.


    Prisoner Monkeys

    Don’t worry. We’re not truly in trouble until FOM start using this to cut the videos:

    And because I have it stuck in my head right now, you’re going to get it stuck in your head.

    Also, here’s another bad one they could use:


    Tom L.

    Journeyer – thanks very much! I realised that it was slightly off-topic for the BBC thread but I thought I’d be more likely to get a reply there than by resurrecting this thread!

    PM – just why?! :D


    Prisoner Monkeys

    Because you were dumb enough to follow the links after I said they were horrible.



    can anyone update this ?

    2011 soundtrack:

    1. Australia: Rooster – Good To Be Here

    2. Malaysia: Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Higher Ground

    3. China: Bullet For My Valentine – The Last Fight

    4. Turkey: You Me At Six – The Consequence

    5. Spain: We Are The Ocean – Lucky Ones

    6- 13 ??????????????????????????
