Nice thread, was thinking this would be a good idea. Just a couple of points...

I don't think Moloko's The Time is Now was used in 03-04, it was an odd tune and the trail consisted of a bloke leaning forward gliding towards the Ford sign in the stadium? I had a quick look on youtube and can't find it. Was a song I had never heard before, and never heard since.

Also, does anyone know what Sky's International music theme tune was before Muse's Starlight? I believe it was used for the 2006 WC qualifiers? Thanks.

Thanks James, I've listed them both. I thought Fools Gold was used seeing some of the old posts on forums etc

Chris, I can't find either, and I was told Sky started to use Moloko in 03? Would make sense as I can't find anything that lists a track between Dario G and Moloko

The football league theme last year was the now voyager radio edit of Candi Staton's You Got The Love which is my personal favourite version of that song

I'm not having much luck, but I have found this link, which suggests they started using the Time is Now in 2004.

http://www.tourdates.co.uk/news/4452-sky-sports-choose-moloko

Does nobody out there remember the one from 03-04? I've fished out an old DS thread that doesn't seem to know it either, but hates it. I do remember it being a particularly dreadful track. Perhaps it was something produced in-house, hence why there is little record of it?

Moloko's song was definitely used from 2004. The previous season was some sort of rock dirge which is untraceable, and was probably not commercially available.

I used to post on the following forum which has details of past Sky Sports music.

Thank you for such a wonderfully comprehensive list, The Exiled Wanderer.

I had been wondering what the music ITV had been using to go into commercial breaks during the World Cup was (Jonsi), so thanks for providing me with the answer to that!

I'd wondered that too, a very good choice it was for their coverage too.
