** His first four albums were all instrumental, save for a few minutes of ''Ommadawn'' in Part 1 and its epilogue, "On Horseback", ''Incantations'' in Parts 2 and 4, and though not sung, the instrument intros in ''Music/TubularBells''. Then there's the ''Platinum'' title track, ''[=QE2=]'', 90% of "Taurus 2", the ''Tubular Bells'' sequels...the list goes on.
* {{Leitmotif}}: In addition to the aforementioned re-recordings, the ''Tubular Bells'' intro was recycled in some of his later works, such as "Taurus 2", which itself has riffs recycled in other songs of ''Five Miles Out''.
* LiveAlbum: ''Exposed''
* LyricalDissonance: "Moonlight Shadow" and "Crime of Passion".
