In Tune's specially curated playlist: an eclectic mix of music, featuring favourites, lesser-known gems, and a few surprises.
As the 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russia, the In Tune Mixtape offers an uninterrupted half hour of music associated with football, whether used in TV coverage, sung by supporters, or written by composers inspired by the beautiful game. Music includes the iconic Puccini aria "Nessun dorma!" sung by Pavarotti, Rodgers and Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone", the theme from the film "The Great Escape", and Faure's Pavane. Also included is an arrangement of a popular Russian song - Ochi Chernye (Dark Eyes), featuring the bass John Tomlinson, specially recorded for this year's BBC coverage.
