  1. The piece you are thinking of is called carol of the bells.
    Usually played around christmas time.

  2. Could the song that you were trying to think of be “Carol of the Bells”, the Christmas carol? That’s the one I thought of.

  3. The song played reminds me of the Christmas song Silver Bells.

  4. The song reminded me of the Carol of the Bells. With each da da dada, da da dada, I started to hum along…then was lost as the song went a different way.

  5. David,

    I’ve just listened to this episode, so maybe you’ve figured out what song ‘What You Leave Behind’ reminds you of, but to me it sounded a lot like ‘Tubular Bells’ by Mike Oldfield.

  6. Adding my vote for “Carol of the Bells”, though I can also hear some of what I like about “Tubular Bells”.
