I thought I was going mad, but watching the end of Crufts tonight proved me wrong. Has anyone else noticed that so many programmes and trailers on nearly all channels seem to be using the same song as background audio at the moment? I don't have a clue what it is, but it has been used on the "Weekends in February" trailer on ITV1, Channel 4's "New Heroes of Comedy", and tonight at the end of Crufts on BBC2. Those are just a few - I've lost track of how many times it's been played and for what.

Not only is it irritating hearing the same song on TV all the time, but when you don't like the song, it drives you round the twist. What is it, and more importantly, why is it that so many broadcasters/producers, seem to think this song is brilliant.

I dunno if it's the same track, but the theme from Diary of a Call Girl has been used on trailers a lot too... "God Put A Smile on Your Face" by Mark Ronson.

I do like it, but there's a thing called overkill I believe Laughing similar to Chelsea Dagger on film trailers the last 12 months I guess.

Yep it is that Mark Ronson track, first one on his Version album.

I much preferred the Coldplay original.

Saying that I'm not a fan of Ronson's remixes of biggish hits from other bands. I'd rather he just do some original work.

Same here, on both Ronson & the Coldplay version, which is an excellent track IMO, on of their best

The theme tune to Secret Diary of a Call Girl was You Know I'm No Good by Amy Winehouse.

I was thinking about this not so long ago, as C4 seemed to flog The Only Ones' Another Girl, Another Planet last year for every retro-documentary last year for some reason-- although wasn't it re-released after that Vodafone ad campaign?

I don't trust that Wackypaedia.
