Can anybody find a decent length version of the original Channel 4 TdF Theme tune?

I think this is the longest on YawToob http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IMjb6sU5Mg

I'd love to have a proper three or four minute version of this tune, its been an infection in my life since I was a small child. Is there anyone out there of a cyclist bent who can remix this into a 12" version for me?

I know that Pete Shelley of Buzzcocks fame is responsible for it so.

That brought back memories!

I had this as my ringtone until I changed to an HTC phone which won't allow it to play  20http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b9RSV9p8Vo&feature=related

I believe and may be wrong, that Pete composed this especially for the program/TDF and it was only around a 30-40 second piece?

Here is an MP3 is thats any help to you

After a bit more searching and listening to a few things

It seems its a mash up from ZIP's song's Give it to me and Your Love

Which HTC have you got? Its strange, Why not download it on your computer and transfer it via usb to your memory card?

Desire.

Same thing happened with Itv ringtone. It says it saved to memory card but you can't access it let alone assign as a ringtone. With the Itv one I emailed them at the time and they said many HTC owners had the same issue so refunded me.

Cheers Gkam8!

I have a Desire and can set the MP3 as a ringtone from either 'downloads' or from the menu when it plays on the HTC music player.

My phone will let me play the track but not select it as a ringtone.

Have you tried it through the ringtone trimmer Super Domestique? If it didn't come as standard on your phone it should be downloadable?
