Found this interesting snippet:
Title: Carillon. Sky, John Williams
Author: Words and music - Herbie Flowers and Ian Gomm

They seem to list "Words & music" for most of the entries but...!

Part of the iPod generation. Everything is called a 'song' these days....

(Bl**dy h*ll - how do you get to be on "Grumpy Old Men"!)

'Grumpy Old Men' was a great idea, with some credible complaints from the grumpy ones. Now it's a bit contrived and the 'Grumpy Old Women' show even more so.

I think Ian Gomm did write a lyric for Carillon, which is why his name's on the copyright. Never heard it, mind; it's a song (sorry Tim) I can't imagine being sung.

My iPod regards Beethoven's 9 symphonies as 36 songs. Other 'songs' include Barenboim's Reith Lectures and Michel Thomas's German lessons. Happy whistling, all.

Thanks Steve. I'm fascinated that the Beethoven Symphonies only make 36 songs on your iPod - is that 36 songs and 1 scene by the brook? I'm sure Barenboim would have a thing or two to say about the Reith lectures being a song...

Serious stuff this time.

According to the biog on "Ian co-wrote the instrumental 'Carrillon' with Herbie Flowers the bass player who had played on most of Ian's solo recordings. Herbie had just formed a classical 'super group' Sky with guitarist John Williams and this track appeared on their debut album 'Sky'..."

Note the word 'instrumental'.
