Help w/Identifying TV Game Show Music (UPD: 2019-May-19)
« on: February 21, 2019, 02:41:09 AM »
Hi. I was wondering if anyone could identify music from certain shows. They may be stock music, and I'd like to find them one day to collect.


#01 -- [USA] TV Series -- Liars Club (1969)
FOUND by Craig-UK. What a wonderful track, after listening to it.

#02 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- Don Adams Screen Test (1975)
FOUND by apmnut. The ContentID was able to determine it from the OGM Music Library, but I wasn't able to find the music from their existing public database online. Thanks for the information.

#03 -- [CAN] TV Series -- The Mad Dash (1979)
Listen Here.

#04 -- [GBR] TV Series -- Sale Of The Century (1971)
FOUND by Lord Thames. Thanks for providing me your copy of the track. It's much appreciated.

#05 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- Split Personality (1959)
Listen Here.

#06 -- [USA] TV Series -- The $10,000 Pyramid (1973)
Listen Here.

#07 -- [USA] TV Series -- The $1,000,000 Chance Of A Lifetime (1985)
Listen Here. Also used on Metro Sport's Aloha Bowl in 1982.

#08 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- Get Rich Quick (1977)
FOUND by me.

#09 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- The Riddlers (1977)
Listen Here.

#10 -- [USA] TV Series -- The Celebrity Game (1964)
Listen Here. Was also used (supposedly) on the children's cartoon King Leo and Odie back in the 1960s.

#11 -- [USA] TV Series -- Stump The Stars (1962)
FOUND by apmnut. Thank you for the information. There's someone on Discogs.com who has the Impress disc catalog number IA-242 and says the song is the same as what's used on the TV show. The music was acquired. Thank you to Willem DeJong.

#12 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- Whodunnit? (1979)
Listen Here.

#13 -- [USA] TV Series -- Who Said That? (1953)
Listen Here.

#14 -- [USA] TV Series -- Keep It In The Family (1957)
Listen Here. Now okay, this is likely not production music. But it is a cover tune from that Frank Sinatra song "Love & Marriage". The question is who performed this version.

#15 -- [USA] TV Series -- Can You Top This? (1970)
Listen Here. The tune sounds like from the stop-action children's show "Postman Pat". Unfortunately, I don't know what the title this tune was based off on to start my search.

#16 -- [USA] TV Series -- In The Bag (1958)
FOUND by Craig-UK. Thank you for the information.

#17 -- [USA] TV Series -- Home Run Derby (1960)
Listen Here.

#18 -- [USA] TV Series -- The Bowling Game (1980)
Listen Here.

#19 -- [USA] TV Series -- Super Bingo (1960)
Listen Here.

#20 -- [USA] TV Series -- One In A Million (1967)
Listen Here.

#21 -- [USA] TV Pilot -- Beat The Odds (1975)
Listen Here.

I had no idea Rod Serling even hosted a game show! That's an odd ball one...and seeing a young Betty White and a VERY young Dick Galitier is a trip!

Can't ID any of these unfortunately, but I will say the last one (pinball report from 1978 on ABC) i've heard before and is familiar.

Man, I like that first Liar's Club track! Can't help you with it or the two other cues you seek, though, although that first jazzy vibe track sounds kinda British to my ears.

The 3rd video's music was also used on the Canadian game show The Mad Dash from 1979. I didn't see a composer listed, although for stock music they rarely are.

For the 1st video, it sounded like Keith Papworth of DeWolfe, because of his music from 1967 DWLP 3024 record "Silk Organdie".

Just found the unknown Don Adams track. It's "Show Music #2" by Neil Amsterdam, originally from Capitol Hi-Q X-163/164.

Thanks for the info, it helped. Although I found it under a different name.

I found the track here, under "1940s": https://soundcloud.com/ole-georg/sets

The track is called "Showtime #7". No word on the artist, but nonetheless, a great tune.

EDIT: Apparently it's under the track "Show Biz Unlimited" as well...okay, nevermind, I'll presume the SoundCloud listing is incorrectly listed.

Can't help you with the Split Personality track, but the Sale of the Century tracks sound very German. Mozart Edition or Selected Sound, maybe?

'Sale Of The Century' is 'Clap Surf' by Alf Beckstein, released in the UK on Harmonic CBK 636 (and commercially released on several different labels in Europe)

Thanks for the info, Lord Thames. Is there a website that showcases Harmonic Mood Music's library of production music, where I could find the song?

Nobody has this library's tunes on any site.

Actually, most of the cues in albums with the "CBG" prefix licensed through Brilliant Musik are available to listen to on Extreme Music's website, albeit under different titles.

All right, found #8.

It's "Sports Page" by Keith Andrew Roberts from the Conroy/Berry Music library.

There was a tune that sounded similar to #3 while I was sifting through the Conroy music library on EMI Play. It was "Disco King" by Keith Mansfield. I'm wondering if the theme for Mad Dash was by Keith Mansfield. I'll have to do more digging.

#10 is custom music by Arlo. As it says in the closing credits.
