Hi everyone:

I recently started to enjoy the X Files Third Season DVD set.

I have a question about a Season 3 episode. The name of the episode is "DPO". This is the third episode on the first disc of the 7 disc DVD set. This is the one where there is a guy who can control lightning.

At the beginning of the episode, when another guy pushes him to the ground at the arcade and all the lights go out, DPO turns on the jukebox and a song starts playing. This song also starts playing from a car radio when the bully leaves the arcade and turns on his car.

It sounds like a Pink Floyd song but I am not sure. I did not see the song listed in the closing credits.

Anybody know the name of this song and the performer?

Thank you.

Carlos

From The X-Files FAQ ( http://bedlam.rutger...esFAQ.html#misc )

Q: What was the opening song in "D.P.O."?
A: James, "Ring the Bells" (from the album "Alternative NRG").


Here's the Amazon listing: http://www.amazon.co....835826-7391260

...and there's a sample there...track 2. Cheers,

David:

Thank you very much. That is the exact song.

Great song for a great episode.

Is James the entire name of the artist? Is there a last name?

Thanks again.

Carlos

Is there more to his name than "James"? I dunno. I just recalled seeing that info in the FAQ, and dug it up. Sorry. Glad you got what you wanted, though!

Actually "James" are a band from Manchester in the UK. Best known for songs such as "Sit Down", "Laid" and "Destiny Calling". Their website is at http://www.jamestheband.com , and there you can find the following FAQ:

Where can I find the version of "Ring the Bells" that is heard on the X-Files?

The slow, acoustic version of "Ring the Bells" from the X-files episode entitled "D.P.O." is featured on the Greenpeace compilation titled "Alternative NRG". The song was recorded at "The Palace" in Hollywood, CA with equipment run exclusively by solar power.

HTH!
