Arthur Greenslade (4 May 1923 – 27 November 2003) was a British conductor and arranger for films and television, as well as for a number of performers. He was most musically active in the 1960s and 1970s.
Greenslade was born in Northfleet, Kent. In the 1950s, he was pianist and arranger with the Oscar Rabin Band. He arranged for Jack Jones, Chris Farlowe, Serge Gainsbourg, Genesis, Cat Stevens, Diana Ross, Dusty Springfield, The Bachelors and Kinderjazz. For Shirley Bassey, he arranged "Goldfinger" and "Send in the Clowns". He has conducted orchestras in the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall, and was Bassey's musical director.
Greenslade also conducted some easy listening recordings. He conducted the orchestra for Rod McKuen's first television special, which aired on NBC in May 1969. He also arranged Ireland's 1973 Eurovision Song Contest entry, "Do I Dream", sung by Maxi. Perhaps most famously, he arranged the 1969 hit single "Je T'Aime ... Moi Non Plus" by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.
