What Is That Song Played During Premier League Goal Highlights?

For the 2010-11 Premier League season, TWI – the company who provides the feed and audio from the commentators for the matches – has been playing a new catchy jingle during goal highlights and sometimes before and after games. We finally tracked it down a few weeks ago and found that it’s a song by Kasabian called “Fire.” And thanks to reader Mike Cardillo (@thatsonpoint) here’s the video from the song in case you’re interested.

It’s one of those songs that grows on me over time to the point where I now love it.

    What’s up with the FA and Kasbabian lately? First they debut the new England kits ( and now this?

  2. Bishopville Red says:

    Sorry Gaffer, if I had known you were looking for the tune I could have told you a loooong time ago. Kasabian is great.

    • The Gaffer says:

      No worries Bishopville. I knew it was Kasabian’s “Fire” a few weeks ago, but Mike brought the video to my attention, so I thought I’d share it with the viewers.

    This song isn’t too bad, but I prefer The Temper Trap’s “Science of Fear” that was used by Match of the Day last year.

  4. David says:

    Hey Gaffer

    I’m looking for the name of the techno song that will sometimes be played during recent highlights of matches. I’ve been searching for hours now and can’t seem to find it, but I have found the song in another video on youtube (ignore the jersey tool). You can really hear it towards the end of the video. Thanks for any help!

  5. David says:

    Hey, I’m looking for the name of the techno song that is played at halftime. It usually shows the highlights of the previous few weeks. I’ve been at this for a while now with no luck and was wondering if you might know. It is also used in the background of the blooper outtakes for the Situation’s workout dvd. Any help would be appreciated.


  6. David says:

    Sorry for the double post, the first one didn’t show up in my browser. :(

  7. ... says:

    yeah , whats the name??

  8. David says:

    Yeah, unfortunately the only place I’ve found the song is on youtube and at halftime of the EPL games, and even then it has the commentary over top of it. So frustrating!

    • The Gaffer says:

      David, if you have a smart phone, download a free app called Shazam. Then next time you hear the song, even if it’s just a few seconds of it, boot up Shazam and it’ll tell you what the name of the track is and who the artist is!

  9. David says:

    I have Shazam on my phone, I just can’t find a version of the song that doesn’t have talking or other noise over top of it. Although, I guess if I ever get famous with my own talk show then I know what song is gonna be in the background. :P

  10. ... says:

    can somone use shazam and tekk us the name and artist?

  11. David says:

    Shazam doesn’t work on it because there are people talking, we’d have to find a version of the song without any talking over top which I have been unable to do.

  12. Ziya says:

    I was searching for this song everywhere. Thanks a lot!

  13. ... says:

    But, did u find the song?

    If u did, what is the name of the techno song?

  14. David says:

    For all those chasing the fast beat techno song used in “Pick Of The Season” I am suffering the same pain. But save yourselves time when searching and get the segment name correct it’s Pick Of The Season not Week.

    I’ve tried Sound Hog same result as Shazam too much noise over the top of the song to recognize the audio behind it so I am going to email the shows producers or music people as they would definately know what music they use for the segment as they would have to get the artist’s approval. Ill post any reply.

  15. David says:

  31. James says:

    Hello David, can you send me a copy of this techno song to my email: ?

    Many thanks ;)

  32. David says:

    Guys & Girls

    I am currently unable to distribute a copy of the song as it’s protected under copyright & the production company have made it very clear they do not want it made public as it’s artist owned which could mean legal action against them & me so no can do i’m affraid.

    I found this track by extensive research, many phonecalls etc so if you can find it you truly deserve to have it but i cannot give up the source.

    If i could i would but i will say it should be released through ITunes quite soon as they were producing a full length track version so i’d suggest keep checking ITunes regularly.

    So please no more email requests as they will be deleted as i get soo many every day it’s got rather silly.

    Apologies all around.

    Good Luck.
