Name That Tune (Part Six)

Remember That Night DVD (2007)If you’re somewhat baffled, then Name That Tune was an old television quiz show where contestants had to identify a song title after hearing just a few bars of music.

We’re doing it with pictures instead.

Dare you hazard a guess as to which song David is playing above?

You can click on the image for a closer look, if it helps.

If you haven’t yet sent in your question for David, then you’re slowly running out of time. The deadline is this coming Friday at 5PM (UK).

Please click here to leave your question at the right place – and do be sure to read the rules first. They’re right at the top of the page. You can’t miss them. (Well, some of you clearly are missing them…)

I need to know your real name and whereabouts. Leave this information out and your question will not be considered.It really is that simple.

These are questions from anyone in Europe, and anyone due to attend a cinema where ‘Remember That Night’ is being shown on Thursday 6 September only, don’t forget.

The questions for the North American premiere – on Saturday 15 September – have been chosen and will be announced, along with the European ones, towards the end of next week – at the very earliest.

However, please be aware that not all shortlisted questions will be used on the night. This is due to the cinemas requiring some flexibility. Consequently, even if your question is chosen and you send in your video, audio and photo, there is a chance that your question, unfortunately, will not be used. Obviously, this is out of my hands.

I just wanted to make that clear up front, so that everyone knows the deal.

The same applies for both UK & Europe and North American premieres.

There’s a new poll about the Q&A sessions, so do cast your vote.

The chatroom is open tomorrow between 4PM and 6PM (UK).

  1. Hey FEd,

    Remember my little question about certain coincidences on September 6th? Well, as it turns out, throughout history, September 6th is a very important day:

    1972: On September 6, 1972, violence rocks the Munich Olympic Games when Palestinian terrorists attack the Israeli compound in the Olympic village, killing two team members and kidnapping nine. In exchange for the athletes’ lives, the Palestinians demanded safe passage and the release of some 200 imprisoned Arab and German terrorists. The next night–September 7–West German authorities conveyed the terrorists and their hostages to the airport. There, German sharpshooters opened fire in a desperate rescue attempt. In the ensuing fire-fight, the Palestinians killed five Israeli athletes with a grenade and gunned down the other four. Five of the Palestinians and one German were also killed. After a day of mourning, the Munich Games resumed.

    1997 – Millions of people around the world watch live television pictures from London of the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales who had died in a car crash in Paris a week earlier. Britain comes to a virtual standstill for the whole day with an estimated two million mourners either outside Westminster Abbey or lining the route and a further 32 million watching the funeral on television.The worldwide TV audience is estimated at two billion.

    1991: The Soviet Union recognises the independent Baltic republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

    1989: Thanks to a computer error, 40,000 people in Paris receive letters charging them with murder, extortion and organised prostitution. Each should have been sent notification of a traffic offence.

    1987: For the first time since 1315, the historic Venice Regatta is held without the city’s 230 gondoliers, who are on strike in protest at the damage being caused to the city by powerboats.

    1970: Palestinian terrorists hi-jack four airliners travelling to New York from Europe. A Pan-Am jumbo is blown up the next day in Cairo; two Boeing 707s are blown up on September 12th at an airstrip in Jordan. The fourth is flown to London where hi-jacker Leila Khaled is arrested.

    1968: Welsh singer Mary Hopkin enters the British pop charts with Those Were The Days which goes to No 1.

    1966: South African Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd is assassinated in the Parliament in Cape Town by Dimtric Tsafondas.

    1965: The start of a 17 day war between India and Pakistan when Indian troops invade West Pakistan.

    1941: The Nazis announce that the wearing of yellow Star of David badges is compulsory for all Jews living in Germany.

    1901: US President William McKinley is shot by anarchist Leon Czolgosz while at a reception at Buffalo in New York. McKinley dies 8 days later.

    1880: England beats Australia by five wickets at the Oval in the first Test Match played in England. English batsman W.G. Grace scores a century.

    1879: Opening of Britain’s first telephone exchange – at Lombard Street in London.

    1852: Britain’s first free public lending library opens in Manchester.

    1666: The Great Fire of London is finally put out after burning for four days – destroying more than 13,000 houses and almost 100 churches – including St Paul’s Cathedral. A total of 6 people are killed.

    1651: Charles II famously spends the night hidden in an oak tree at Boscobel after his defeat by Oliver Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester.

    1522: Ferdinand Magellan’s ship, the ‘Victoria’ – under the command of Juan Del Cano – arrives back in Spain, after completing the first circumnaviagation of the world. Magellan, its Portuguese navigator and original commander, had been killed by natives in the Phillipines.

  2. Well, that’s the red ’57 reissue stratocaster with the EMG pickups, his main strat from the DB tour. So I’m going with Coming Back To Life.

    I’m glad to hear everyone had fun at BarnFest. Sorry I couldn’t make it.

  3. NAME THAT TUNE:

    Shine on, mind you I am brutal at this game, it’s most likely something else.

    Rgds Geoff Duffy ( Dublin )

    Is it name that tune or the dating game? ha ha ha

    sorry Brian, could not resist that one

    Rgds Geoff Duffy ( Dublin )

  5. Shine On You Crazy Diamond,

    At least on 30th of May 2006 David played the red Strat on that one.

    Tomasz

  6. I’ll have to go with either SOYCD or Coming back to life……mmmm

    I reckon ‘Coming back to life’

  7. NAME THAT TUNE:

    Too easy! Shine On You Crazy Diamond! It’s the Red Stratocaster that gives it away!

  8. “Remember When You were Young, you shone like the sun…. SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND!!”

    Sorry…I felt like e-singing my answer.

    [Beautifully done, too. – Features Editor]

  9. Just some schoolboy humour…

    “I’ll name that tune in one” was normally a comment made when someone in the group farted…

    And by “group” that normally means: All male consuming lots of beer…

  10. Hi,

    Judging by the subdued lightening in the above photo and the positon of David’s hand on the fretboard, I will hazard a guess that he is playing the introduction to “Shine On”. But then again, he could be playing the introductory lead solo work in “Echoes”. Decisions, decisions.

    Sad that I missed the opportunity to partake in the chatroom again. I will make it again one day.

    Best regards.

    Julie

  11. Hi Fed,

    Met that nice young man Guy Pratt last night at his Edinburgh show!! well worth the visit….

    Oh yes!! has to be SOYCD

    [Glad that you enjoyed it, Paul. I’m going up to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks. Never been before. Do you know of any good places? – Features Editor]

  12. Hey FEd!

    Is there going to be any cinematic preview of the new DVD in Norway or not? I`m starting to get nervous here… 😉

    [I’m sorry, but I’m still waiting for someone to tell me the answer to that one. – Features Editor]

  13. I’m going to say that the song portrayed in the picture is Comfortably Numb. As usual, I’m thinking that I’ll probably be wrong, again. :O)

    My word, Brian, there WAS a lot of stuff that happened on September 6th. Some I remember vividly from my childhood (the Munich games, especially).

    Darren

  14. Hullo FED and All !!!

    Let’s not forget Roger Waters birthday either !

    Well, I have been busy with the new job. It’s going swimmingly well. I’d venture ‘Take A Breath’ on NTT, the lighting looks about right for the middle of the song.

    How have you been FED ? I hope that this day finds you well. My apologies for not keeping up on here, but I’ll be sure to make chat tomorrow. I’m off tomorrow because of a medical appointment. I am meeting with my back doctor to discuss the possibilities of performing surgery to relieve my pain.

    Looking forward to seeing RTN in Miami. Anybody care to get together for a drink or two before the show ? Please let me know.

    Well, I am off and running. Need to get dinner started.

    Greetings and salutations to Veronica and Ulli ! Hoping the both of you are well.

    Cazart !

  15. If I may add, the songs on the original Name That Tune game show were also quite lame.

    Thanks.

    Andrew

  16. Wow…Brian you know your research. ok anyways…hmm that tune…ooo…I’ll get back to ya on that…ouch…the blister’s on my hand, hurt when i type…I don’t know why i just told you that, but anyways.

    Some really great questions in the “Uk and Europe” section…I really admired that one story about the guy that had 1% chance of living, from drugs, and drinking. Good thing he got a happy ending.

    Cheers
    Kim

  17. Hmmmmm….Red Stratocaster, I’d say Coming Back To Life.

    BTW judging by that Fat Old Sun video the DVD is going to be absolutely amazing. Can’t wait.

  18. Hi FEd & bloggers !

    My guess for that tune is “Shine on you crazy diamond”…the one & only song where David uses this red stratocaster on this tour!

    Am I right ? 😉

    It’s a great piece from de PF’s catalogue & the way David & the band revisited this song on the “OAI Tour” was wonderful !

    Best regards,
    Patoch’

  19. Be it Shine on you nutty cubic zirconium?

    [Why didn’t they call it that, eh? – Features Editor]

  20. Judging based solely on the fact that the pickup selector switch is on the neck and his fingers are upon, or around about, the 13th fret, and he’s using his 57RI with the DG EMG20’s, i’d have to say he’s playing Shine On. I’m probably wrong though.

  21. thank you David Gilmour,thanks for everything,thank you for being so great…thanks for each moment,for each feeling for each tear of happiness you cause me.

    cheers my friend,together until the end!

  22. Hope everyone had a great time at Barnfest, I sure wish i could have been there but it was a very long way away from me, i know you all had a great time.

    I’m voting everyday for our blog, i hope we win this year.

    Have a great week everyone and i’m sorry i missed the Barnfest, i sure would have liked to have been there.

    Clarice

  23. I’m going with Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

    I’d just like to say hello to everybody. I’ve been a long time reader, and this is my first post!

    [Welcome aboard, Collin. Thanks for joining in. – Features Editor]

  24. Hello FEd… I today received an email from a store here in Brazil correcting the date of launching of the DVD for 18/09 in Brazil.

    According to them the old date was missed and it related to the Blu-Ray version. It seems that the date is correct but thank you very much for your concern and its aid, but any alteration can communicate me. Thanks.

    Well the Name That Tune is Shine On You Crazy Diamond…

    [Thanks for that, Marcos. I’m still waiting for official confirmation of all release dates, and, like everyone, I hope not to have to wait much longer. – Features Editor]

  25. My choice for today’s photo could be anything, but Echoes was my gut feeling due to the lighting.

  26. My name that tune guess would be Shine on as I think it’s the only song David plays his red Strat in. The lighting fits too.

  27. Good morning Fed,

    Excuse me for my question…If my question to David was chosen,how would have I to send you my recording?Is it just sufficient to submit my question at the moment?Thank you for your patience…

    Piero

    [All we want for now are questions. We will choose the best ones, then ask the people who sent in our favourites to make two recordings (audio and video) and to upload them to us, along with a photograph. We will announce the winners late next week. – Features Editor]

  28. wow, lots to read this morning! looks like fed had a very early start today! loads more questions.

    i also thought ‘shine on you crazy diamond’.

    to thomas: sorry that you are still waiting on news for norway. i hope you’ll be lucky.

    to collin: welcome! nice to meet you!

    to raymond: good luck at the doctor’s!

    to fed: it’s an obvious one, but edinburgh castle is amazing. you have to check it out.

    [Absolutely. It’s on the list. – Features Editor]

  29. – Name that tune ? Au pif ? ou pur plagiat ? : ‘Coming Back To Life’ (Y’a déjà eu ‘SOYCD’ on the 17th blog entry, I think…

    – [BBC Radio 2 will also be broadcasting some of the questions on the night, so everyone will be able to ‘tune in’ online]

    To read is one thing, to listen to and understand is another (not so easy) thing…

    So, is there any chance for us to read here later on the blog some of the cinemas Q&A, please ? (If that doesn’t make you get square eyes once again, of course…)

    Michèle

    [Possibly. – Features Editor]

  30. Err, is it Acoustic Echoes?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist it….and it isn’t that much worse than some of the other suggestions!!!

  31. VARIATION FOR NAME THAT TUNE.

    Hey Fed,

    How about us taking a guess as to what David will play at Leicester Square on the 6th. I for one & i guess most of us dont mind what David plays, its a privilege just to be there, it would just be bit of fun to take a guess as to what he would wish to play.

    You will probably have to make it very clear that its not a wish list.

    [Make it very clear that it’s not an opportunity to nag, yet still have to stare, open-mouthed, at many people’s inability to pay attention? Mate, if I shake my head in disbelief any more this week, my head will gradually work its way loose and topple off when I least expect it. And it’s only Wednesday. And I have to watch Wales play twice before the weekend is over. – Features Editor]

  32. Fed,this place is hivin’ at the minute because of the festival so i’m unsure as to what its like after…The Underbelly at Cowgate where Guy played seems to be the inplace, loads of different acts.

    Oh well gotta a boat to catch

    Cheers
    Paul

  33. I’ll go for Shine On too.

    Getting out of bed was my first big mistake day today, so it’s probably just me but I can’t find the vote for this website button (I’ve had my daily vote for The Blog).

    [Thanks very much for your vote. Click your name to vote us ‘Best Music Site’. – Features Editor]

  34. Hello Fed!

    Yesterday I have the DVD booked in advance with amazon.de.

    The answer from Amazon was:
    David Gilmour (Darsteller), David Mallet (Regisseur) “David Gilmour
    – Remember that Night/Live at …” [DVD]
    Voraussichtliches Lieferdatum (release date): 14.09.2007 – 17.09.2007.

    Nick Mason will play on 2.11.2007 on the Jazz Festival in Berlin. Maybe it is interesting also for other fans.

    Have a great day
    Ina

    [Interesting. Many thanks. – Features Editor]

  35. [Let’s not forget Roger Waters birthday either !]

    Sorry about that Ray. But it was the coincidence of the DVD premier and Rogers birthday that sparked my interest in that date. I mentioned Rogers birthday being on the 6th a while back and suggested that it was some strange conspiracy. FEd utterly denied it… but I’m not so sure, he’s a slippery one 🙂

    [Is it name that tune or the dating game? ha ha ha]

    Well Geoff, you never know. After the Leicester Square meet up on the 6th, the dating game could be a possibilty? FEd, you better start practicing your best Cilla impression!!

    Just one more thing FEd. I placed my order for the DVD and ‘medium’ shirt on the UK official store. Long shot, but do you know if it will arrive on or after the official release date?

    [It’s too soon to know just yet, sorry. We’ll let you know more a bit closer to the time. (And not wishing to brag, but I do a pretty fair Scouse accent…) – Features Editor]

  36. Talking about Castles earlier on FEd, have you ever visited Caernarfon Castle.

    I’ve only ever been there once, and its possibly the best one i’ve seen. It’s an Owain Glyndwr one I think!

    [I went there once, many years ago. Very impressive, if not wholly insulting. – Features Editor]

  37. [Make it very clear that it’s not an opportunity to nag, yet still have to stare, open-mouthed, at many people’s inability to pay attention?

    Have i Missed something? or are you saying that for sure people will demand what David should play. & its going to be too much heartache to do. Excuse me being a bit thick but unless its spelled out i tend to miss things.

    As for Internationals i have lost interest since none of my clubs players (except Jens) will be playing & i cant bring myself to support Germany.

    regards
    Graham

    [Maybe we’ll give it a go next week. – Features Editor]

  38. [I’m going up to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks. Never been before. Do you know of any good places? – Features Editor]

    Take advatantage of the free bus service that links 5 museums and art galleries. I recommend the Modern Art, Dean and Portraits galleries especially. If you arrive by train at Waverly Station then walk to National Gallery and use the left luggage facility for luggage, tour the gallery before popping out to catch bus. Return whenever.

    If you are there on 10th I’ll buy you a drink FEd as I will be in Edinburgh in between trains for 4 hours, especially as it is my birthday then.

    Seems loads going to Odeon in London. My reckoning at moment measures 35 but I may have counted some twice.

    Ian Pearson

    [Thanks for the tip, Ian. – Features Editor]

  39. Edinburgh…

    1. Rose Street is a must… many, many bars…
    2. The Meadows, top of Lothian Road, to walk off the hangover the next morning
    3. Old Edinburgh around the Castle is a must for live music and even more bars…
    4. Check out if Deacon Brody’s (another bar) is still at the bottom of the Royal Mile – I bumped into Billy Connolly there once…
    5. And probably the best bit about Edinburgh is the people… just listen to the locals when you’re in one of the many bars…
    6. Check out if there’s a Rugby International happening… that’s an experience!

    [Sounds good. Thanks for that. – Features Editor]

  40. [I’m going up to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks. Never been before. – Features Editor]

    Edinburgh is a beautiful city. I went there for the hogmanay celebrations back in 1986. The people are great and the Edinburgh accent is lovely.

    Can’t remember any place names.

    Hope you enjoy your time there, FEd.

    [Thank you. I’m sure I’ll have a great time. – Features Editor]

  41. It’s the first time I’ve had a go at Name That Tune….. So I’m going to say “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, as it’s one of my favourites.

    Love
    Cori xxxxxx

  42. […if I shake my head in disbelief any more this week, my head will gradually work its way loose and topple off when I least expect it.]

    Oh! What a visual that created! Hilarious! I have this problem everyday at work, myself.

    I’m going to go with…SOYCD

  43. Name That Tune:

    Everyone seems to think this could only be “SOYCD.” Always being one to go with an underdog, I’ll guess this to be “Coming Back To Life.” I’m so very bad at this game that I highly recommend nobody vote with me here. I’m bound to be dead-on worng.

    Ina: Will Nick Mason play as someone’s guest or is he going to do a set under his own name?

  44. I’m going to guess that David swapped out his EMGs for the Kirk Hammet EMGs and this is his take on Enter Sandman…lol.

    C’mon, just gotta have some fun now and then.

    Thanks.

    Andrew

  45. [Ina: Will Nick Mason play as someone’s guest or is he going to do a set under his own name?]

    Check this out…

    Michael Mantler / Kammerensemble Neue Musik – Concertos Project

    Michael Mantler is currently composing a series of instrumental solo concertos for chamber ensemble (the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin) featuring soloists from the fields of contemporary new music (mostly non-improvising) as well as from new jazz and rock (improvising/freely interpreting).

    The premiere will take place at the Berlin Jazzfest on November 2, 2007, followed by a studio recording for ECM Records.

    Cheers, Howard

  46. [And I have to watch Wales play twice before the weekend is over.]

    Would it be Rugby World Cup 2007, test match Wales/France in Cardiff this weekend ? I read this info in my newspaper this morning…

    You watch rugby, too ? Mais ne vous bercez pas d’illusions ! la France gagnera ! SÛR ! Elle ne peut quand-même pas être mauvaise à tout ! (football, cinemas…)

    [If we’re still talking about Rob Styles, I think that would be putting it mildly. – Features Editor]

  48. Hi all,

    I´d bet too, that it is Crazy Diamond, Fed really knows how to give us some food for thought!

    Due to my FL trip I´ve been not posting, but after having recovered from the jetlag and from being back, I´d like to thank Veronica so much for her efforts for organising the Miami DG meeting, and what a fun it had been to meet her and her hubby!

    Believe it or not, it had been on a Miami Rock station that I heard the first and only announcement on a radio station so far about David´s upcoming release of his DVD, and about the US cinemas too, and unlike on German Radio stations, on the US Rock stations they played PF and DG songs a lot, what we appreciated a lot.

    I´m looking forward to the Leicester Square event so much, and to meeting all the Blogies there.

  49. Hi Fed, hope everything is fine in your part of the world!

    If I’m not mistaken the only song Mr. Gilmour used the red strat at The Albert Hall was on Shine On…. so that better be my answer!

    Cheers!

    JT

  50. That song is “Coming back to Life”

    I beleive it is that, because the guitar David is playing contains the DG20 EMG pickups (the Red Strat). The punchy sound that David gets on that song comes from them. (I also have the DG20 system in my G&L S-500.)

    Cory

  51. has to be shine on .

    o fet ed i read yesterday on yahoo sports that rob styles has been demoted form the list of premier league referees .

    hard luck on missing out in gabriel heinze (not!)

    peace
    Linda

    [Demoted? That seems rather mild, too. – Features Editor]

  52. Fed, seen a pub called “Dirty McNasty’s” in Rose street amongst others, what a name for a pub!

    [Best pub name ever. – Features Editor]

  53. having seen david last year in Toronto playing both shine on and coming back, he only played shine on with the candy apple red one…so….I’ll go with seamus…lolllllll

    Shine on you crazy diamond of course!!!!

  54. [And I have to watch Wales play twice before the weekend is over. – Features Editor]

    [Would it be Rugby World Cup 2007, test match Wales/France in Cardiff this weekend ? I read this info in my newspaper this morning… – Michèle]

    [Oui. J’ai des billets (et j’espère avoir “la banane” après cinq heures, dimanche). – Features Editor]

    I really hope we stuff France this weekend. I went to my first Wales game in 1996 with my Dad at Arms Park and we lost 🙁

    I was 9 and the guy in front kept offering me cigarettes – much to the annoyance of my Dad 😀

  55. Edinburgh. Spent a few days up there about 20 years ago. Beautiful city. The castle was quite impressive and I remember going up some tower that gave you a nice view of the city (I know, a lot of help that is.)

    Also, don’t know where you are staying, but we stayed at a bed and breakfast. It was wonderful.

    Sorry I can’t give you any more input other than enjoy.

    Thanks.

    Andrew

    [Thanks very much. I don’t know where I’m staying, either. – Features Editor]

  56. [Was ‘Shine on’ on the 17th blog entry? – Emilio]

    [Yes, it was. Well spotted. – Features Editor]

    This image looks like the one posted on the 17th, except it was taken from a different angle. So I would say it is “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” – Thank you Emilio.

  57. [I’m going up to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks…- Features Editor]

    Hope you have a good time, FEd. You well deserve a break after all these endless efforts and hard work for the Blog.

    But, a couple of weeks would be the premiere week – you wouldn’t miss this special event of David at the Odeon, would you??

    [I would. But it will be special seeing it in Edinburgh’s Cameo Picturehouse. Quieter, too. – Features Editor]

  58. A good history session for me, thank you Brian.

    I came across the link provided by GianLuca regarding the interview with Richard Wright written by Paul Sexton. Is that the same Paul Sexton who’s also the irregular here?

    Best of luck to you, Raymond.

  59. Hi Fed,

    I’m back in the fold after a couple of months AWOL…

    My PC died, went On An Island (no, not Castellorizon) holiday in July, therefore lack of funds prevented getting a replacement until now.

    Wow, There’s sure been a lot going on since mid-June…

    I’m honoured to know that El Magnifico answered TWO of my questions. I hope I have the same luck with my submission to David for 06/09/07.

    I’ll be seeing the premiere in YORK, is anyone else going to be there? Looks as though everyone’s going to Leicester Square!! I can’t imagine why…

    Will call into the chatroom today to say hello.

    Cheers…

    [Welcome back, Ken. Hope you had a good holiday. – Features Editor]

  60. For the conspiracy theorists amongst you…

    Is Fed double-bluffing us here… telling us he’s off to Edinburgh but really going to Leicester Square in disguise… Ah Ha!

    Or maybe he’s going to Edinburgh and everyone will think he’s in Leicester Square in disguise but actually he’s in disguise in Edinburgh

    Or even better… he’s got a copy of the DVD already so he’s staying at home and it’s Ya Boo Sucks to everyone else…

    I need a rest now…

    [I could be really clever (or just nuts), be double-bluffing myself and going to see it in Liverpool, as I intended all along. I honestly don’t know yet. – Features Editor]

  61. Fed,

    Years ago I was working in Edinburgh. I stayed at Queensferry, very close to Edinburgh airport.

    The castle and Rose Street are a must but……

    The place I stayed in was on the river right between the road and railway bridges.

    It really was quite a sight when stood at ground level between those structures.

    Pete – Coventry

    [Thanks, Pete. That does sound very impressive. – Features Editor]

  62. you still off to Ed FE’d?

    some of your more seedier venues – and the best? – are off the beaten track as it were
