A list of my favorite songs and instrumental works by English composer and musician Mike Oldfield.


Michael Gordon Oldfield (born: 15th May 1953) is an English musician and composer.

His work blends progressive rock with world, folk, classical, electronic, ambient and new-age music.

'Tubular Bells' is Oldfield's most famous work. The instrumental composition was recorded in 1972 and released on 25 May 1973 as the inaugural album of Richard Branson and Simon Draper's label Virgin Records.

Oldfield played more than twenty different instruments in the multi-layered recording and its style moved through diverse musical genres. Its 2,630,000 UK sales puts it at No. 34 on the list of the best-selling albums in the country.

The title track became a top 10 hit single in the US after the opening was used in 'The Exorcist' film in 1974. It is today considered to be a forerunner of the new-age music movement.

In late 1974, his follow-up LP, 'Hergest Ridge', was No. 1 in the UK for three weeks before being dethroned by 'Tubular Bells'. Although Hergest Ridge was released over a year after Tubular Bells, it reached No. 1 first. Tubular Bells spent 11 weeks (10 of them consecutive) at No. 2 before its one week at the top.

In 1975, Oldfield recorded a version of the Christmas piece "In Dulci Jubilo" which charted at No. 4 in the UK.

In 1975, Oldfield received a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Composition in "Tubular Bells – Theme from The Exorcist".

Oldfield's 1976 rendition of "Portsmouth" remains his best-performing single on the UK Singles Chart, reaching No. 3.

In 1979, he recorded a version of the signature tune of the British children's television programme 'Blue Peter', which was used by the show for 10 years.

In 1981, Oldfield was asked to compose a piece for the Royal Wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer titled "Royal Wedding Anthem".

Soon afterwards he turned to songwriting, with a string of collaborations featuring various lead vocalists alongside his characteristic searing guitar solos. The best known of these is "Moonlight Shadow", his 1983 hit single with Maggie Reilly.

Oldfield later turned to film and video, writing the score for Roland Joffé's acclaimed 1984 film 'The Killing Fields'.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, Oldfield performed renditions of "Tubular Bells", "Far Above the Clouds" and "In Dulci Jubilo".

Oldfield has released more than 20 albums with the most recent being a rock album titled 'Man on the Rocks', released in 2014.

Although Oldfield considers himself primarily a guitarist, he is also one of popular music's most skilled and diverse multi-instrumentalists. Oldfield has played over forty distinct and different instruments on record.

Oldfield has had more than 30 charting albums and 25 charting singles on the British charts and many more around the world.
