    It's time once again for the obscure music quiz, that nobody asked for but your getting it anyway!

    A REFRESHER OF THE RULES...

    One very obscure piece used in either Top Gear or The Grand Tour will be embedded into the article via YouTube.

    Along with this, I will add a clue at the end of the article (usually a line spoken by one of the presenters) which will help determine which episode the song is from. Please bare in mind though, the clue will be vague so that it will be more of a challenge.

    I will wait two days until posting the answer.

    5 points can be awarded for each of the following: The series and episode/s the music is featured in, the scene in which it plays and which presenter/s are present/ focused on in the scene when the music is playing (for example if it is Hammond talking).

    A bonus 10 points can be awarded for those who guess the car/s being featured!

    YOU MUST NOT VIEW THE COMMENTS AS THEY MAY REVEAL THE ANSWER!

    I will try and keep up with the answers in the comments once the answer has been revealed but you can also play along from home with friends!

    THIS WEEKS TRACK:

    Once again were trailing back into the KPM Music archives with a melancholy tune from what seems to be a film. This track by Francis Monkman makes you feel as if your in somewhat of a period drama or maybe Downton Abbey.

    THIS WEEKS CLUE:

    'ISSUE DE SECOURS'

    • It's from series 13, ep. 7, TV advert challenge (ad for the new VW Scirocco TDI): At first, we hear it at the end of the news when the three watch an old ad for the VW Golf GTI. Then we hear it again when Jeremy and James show their remake of that ad for the new VW Scirocco TDI to the ad execs at their office.

    • Originally it was from 1987 in the VW advert for the Golf GTi; "this is the man who put a million on black, and it came up red..." famously parodied by Clarkson in the Grand Tour, Italian Lessons, Season 1, Episode 11 with the cheap Maseratis. But it was also used, again by Clarkson in the 13th series of Top Gear, episode 7 when he and May were making adverts for the Scirocco. It again parodies the VW advert, but instead of him getting into a car the man in question shoots himself in the head. On-screen. I think it was actually cut from broadcast? I feel it's been used in other moments too, but they are the ones that jump out.
