David Lindup (10 May 1928, East Preston, Sussex – 7 January 1992, Southampton) was an English composer, arranger and orchestrator best known for his collaborations with Johnny Dankworth and his library music (often for KPM). Although credited as the composer of TV theme tunes such as The Informer and Rising Damp, and occasional film scores such as Games That Lovers Play (1970), Shatter (1974) and The Spiral Staircase (1975), as a composer of library music, his pieces usually appear uncredited in films and TV programmes, for example The Full Monty, The Persuaders!, The Box. He is similarly uncredited for his orchestration in musical films such as Scrooge and Goodbye, Mr. Chips.[citation needed]

He was married to Nadia Cattouse and his son Mike Lindup is the keyboardist for Level 42.
