    Hi matey... hope you read this...

    Just wondering if you or anyone else who is as sad as I am can identify the Chillout tune from the four introductory chords I've worked out.

    Dmaj, Bmin, Fsharp Min, Amaj

    With piano with long release...

    Sad I know... but any chance you can Id this tune...?

    Sadly that progression is so common it could be the introduction to almost anything.. Often known as a turnaround progression.

    Bad timing this morning ... I'll check it out when I get home John. Is it just piano? (or is it electric?).

    I thought as much Andrew, but there is one specific chillout tune I can hear in my head, but can't identify it.

    Hi Tom - the start of the song is not piano, but maybe a form of electric piano with a long release. I'll try to emulate it on my Access later and record the speed/chords I seem to remember from the tune etc.

    I'm just back home (... took my mum on a visit to Edinburgh Zoo) and had a listen. Given the sample ... could it be Vangelis? Definitely early '80s in style.

    Vangelis or OMD?

    I thought of OMD, but maybe more like a band such as Talk Talk?

    I have went through my Talk Talk albums and they sound too sophisticated in comparison to the sample.

    Weird as it is ... the original clip was very familiar, but it wouldn't have been something I would have bought at that time. I somehow hear a vocal line used as well. If that's the case, it could be one of many groups who would have used that riff at that time. The space "pops" are typical of Jarre rather than Vangelis but the melodic lines that of the latter. I seriously doubt it was either though. I haven't forgotten about it, btw!

    Hey Tom - this isn't the original!! it's one I put together...

    I know ... it was the first sample I was referring to. Might be getting closer ... ATB used similar techniques (on Spotify at the moment).

    I'll have to do the same ... once the rain stops!
