It gets played a lot in documentaries, the NSPCC also used to use it in their ads. I reckon its one of the most licensed tunes, its definitely the Eno track thats been most licensed.
Aphex Twin did various ripoffs of this track a long time ago, with varying degrees of success.
Also Deepinder Arvo would never be quite that cheesy with minor chords. ;) What bugs me about this track is I swear Bach wrote it first. I'm not saying Eno ripped it from a Bach piece, anyone who writes music ends up writing something Bach already did eventually as he wrote so bloody much. I wish I could find/remember the Bach piece though.
Thank you! Thank you! That's a real splinter out of the paw moment that.
You are right about Part and his minors though I thought it might be a Billy-Orbit-Plays-The-Classics thing i.e. a dumbed down synth arrangement of a real minimalist piece.
There is a lot of Eno that isn't strictly Eno (especially a Greenslade piece that I suspect he lifted the into from for Another Green World).
Anyway - I am pathetically grateful for that. Sainthood awaits you. Patron Saint of Rock Fans With Memory Loss perhaps.
