One of the biggest questions from episode one had nothing to do with cars or explosions or the banter between the boys. The question was about the music and thanks to Amazon and technology, we break it down for you here.
I Can See Clearly Now by Hothouse Flowers | Opening Sequence
The song that was tugging on most grown men’s hearts was the opening sequence song, “I Can See Clearly Now” and the symbolism behind using a Irish Rock Band after leaving a show for punching an Irish Producer can be discussed at another time, but the fact is The Hothouse Flowers is a band handpicked by Jeremy Clarkson and Jezza is a fan of their combination of soul, gospel and rock and we can clearly see why.
Well, for those lucky enough to attend the opening sequence taping in California, we got to hear first hand, the band behind the tear-jerking opening intro music for Jeremy’s symbolic transition from corporate micromanagement to the freedom and independence of the wild west of California.
Here’s the rest of the music that was played during the rest of the episode.
