At the end of the of the classical music list and then at the end of the ‘modern’ music list I have included a downloadable PDF and an excel sheet which includes a list of all the information. This will allow you to put the list on your phone or tablet or print it out. I have also added clickable links to Youtube videos of the music. Just click on the song title and the youtube link will open in a new window. IMPORTANT NOTICE – For those outside of the UK you may get different music in the episodes. This is simply down to copyright problems in your country. ENJOY.

I hope you enjoyed the post.

Author: Chris Sullivan

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

20 thoughts

  1. Mahalo, as always, Chris, for your efforts and incredible work! I know there are software that can readily identify music pretty handily but a compilation with such detailed notations is quite priceless! I’m always on the lookout, especially for the classical music, to identify the actual piece from the show, especially the operas as it makes a huge difference who the soprano is (for example). I’ve managed to expand my own library to include other work from Elgar, who I wasn’t so familiar with before. Again, thank you and hope you are doing well yourself. Take care and looking forward to your next post!

    1. Thank you Edwina. This is more about giving people a complete list and the facility to download the list and so have it next to them when watching episodes.

  2. This is just wonderful Chris. Thank you so much for your efforts in producing this amazing reference material.
    Sarah

  3. Just received series 1 thru 5 of Endeavour, enjoying binge watching. Series 1 Joan quite a flirt! Also enjoyed your tour of the Randolph, Chris.

  4. I had no idea the pilot had a title. I know it refers to Dexter’s first book in the series. But I have the DVD, and it only says “Pilot.” Nothing else.

  5. The In Dreams song is in my opinion not the voice of Roy O.
    Even the text is not (overall) exactly the same, and the melody is different
    I’m trying to get a finger on it but so far no luck.

    1. A few people have remarked on that but a Roy Orbison fan said it was definitely him. He said something about Roy having recorded various versions of the song and changing the way he sang it.

      1. On the original broadcast, it was definitely Orbison and “In Dreams”, the original recording. On international broadcasts, *definitely* neither Orbison nor “In Dreams” but a transparent imitation of both.

  6. Just watching it now and it is the original by Roy Orbison. For the show, they edited it and went right from the start of the song to the end. 100% guaranteed.

  7. Love your work Chris. It was such a delight to find your list with the Roy Orbison song on Endeavour this evening. And of course Shazzam couldn’t get it.

    I was moved by your sacrifice and dedication to your mum and dad too.
    Enjoy your studies and newfound freedom.
    Best

  8. I apologize for my previous post. I have now seen both the original Confection as shown on BBC and the PBS version on Masterpiece Mystery which substituted another song for In Dreams. As was pointed out, it’s not even a real song but probably written to sound vaguely similar, which it does not. Substituting songs on tv show repeats or dvd releases is commonly done because they can’t get the rights to use the song again in reruns or in another country. I don’t like this because it ruins the series creator’s intent in choosing the songs. It ruins the artistic integrity. Also there is the issue of whole scenes being cut by PBS. I appreciate your listing the scenes that are missing from the PBS versions. The existing British tapes and DVDS for sale are only in PAL format which plays in Europe. The PBS dvds which they sell would surely have their edited versions. The only pure way to see the originals would be to tape it off British TV if it was rerun intact, obtain tapes from a British person who taped it when it was first run, or buy the British DVDS if guaranteed that they are uncut and find a dvd player that plays all regions. Right now I am watching tapes made by a British person and yet I like to watch it on PBS – until I am stopped in my tracks by some change PBS made! Still, nothing can ruin the magnificence of this series.

    1. Yes. All the more so in this case because (a) trying to copy “In Dreams” is like trying to copy “God Only Knows” – there aren’t many songs that resemble it, it’s not like you can cover your tracks – and (b) the whole POINT of the picket fences, rotten apple etc was to pay homage to David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” and evoke the same sense of malevolence beneath the surface of suburbia.

  9. Season 6 Episode 3 Confection, the opening song is “In My Dreams”. Who is singing that song. It is not Roy Orbison who never sounded as good as the guy singing it in the opening of episode 3.

    1. Strong disagree from me about the quality, but yes, Orbison has been replaced by a soundalike – and an imitation song – for international versions. Clearance problems? It does kinda wreck the Blue Velvet homage clearly intended in the opening sequence – and “In Dreams” is *such* a distinctive and idiosyncratic song (no chorus, evolving structure, only tiny repeats in it) that copying it seems a futile… endeavour.

  10. I agree
    It is not Roy Orbison
    And it is definitely not the Orbison Song “In Dreams”
    If anyone can figure out who/what it really is please post

  11. Some observations:

    if you listen to the speaking voice of Shaun Evans and the singing voice in this song, they both share the same nasal quality. The song was obviously written for this episode. If it were a name singer, it would not go unattributed. It does not appear to my ears to be a professional singer but the transition into the falsetto is incredible. Not many can do it as well as this singer which is why I want to know who it is!

  12. Just saw that the PBS version of Sway has removed the Dean Martin song “Sway” and replaced it throughout with an unknown instrumental tune. In the opening scene of original broadcast, the record label with the word “Sway” is clearly shown as the needle is placed on the record. In the PBS version this is cut out.

  13. Regarding the opening song of Confection, it is puzzling to me that no-one from PBS or any other organization etc., has replied to the question. A few of you who have posted explain that it is not unusual for substitutions to be made which I can understand due to copyrights etc., but I would like to have heard it ‘straight from the horses mouth’ so to speak.
