Unknown Song #47 Identified

Unknown Song #47, the third song to be identified within the past week, is "Touch & Go," by Colin Willsher.  Willsher's compositions have been used on a lot of TV shows (especially in the UK) and other videos.  You can read more about his work on his website.  Touch & Go is found on the Powermax album from the relatively obscure Stock Music (SMI) library, which is based in Belgium.  Special thanks to both Godzfire & Craig-UK for ID'ing this track, and to Craig-UK for nailing down the release date.

Unknown Song #41 Identified

As promised, here's another track identified through Godzfire's work.  US #41 is "Old School Radio Bed," also by Ron Burns, and it's on another BRg album.  I'm not sure how Burns came up with the name of the song since nothing about it seems "old school" by late-'90s standards, but whatever.  There's another piece on the same album by the name of "New School Radio Bed," but it just sounds like something out of a horror movie.

At the time I made the Gut Wrencher post, there was a third song that had been partially identified (title only).  That track has now been fully ID'd, and I'll write about that in a couple days.

Unknown Song #38 Identified (w/ at least one more to follow)

Thanks to Godzfire's skill at audio editing, he was able to trip the YouTube copyright detectors on a couple NFL Primetime tracks that had previously gone through unnoticed.  The first of these is US #38, also known as the blues-rock song from 1997.  It's actual title is "Gut Wrencher," written by Ron Burns.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find much info on Burns beyond him being a member of a few bands I'd never heard of (they're listed on his Discogs page).  Gut Wrencher is found on the first BRg Extreme Cuts Album (BRg3001).  As with the other BRg songs I've previously posted about, the release date for Gut Wrencher is murky.  The track pages on the Manhattan website for this album list the release date as 2010, so that's obviously incorrect.  I suppose these BRg albums might be compilations, but—if so—I have no idea what the original source is.

Another track was identified by the same method, and I'll post about that one within the next couple days.  Again, special thanks to Godzfire for getting these two ID'd.
