Hey, It's obi. Duh. You may or may not have noticed, but I have been gone a while due to a million different reasons. One of which is coming up in about 30 minutes. A job. AHHHHHH!


Anyway, I just wanted to see what was up and how everbody was doing. I got a new cell phone, engaged, the flu, a job, and um....a sexy new cowboy hat and superman necklace, which I will pimp out for you all later.


Anyway, I don't want to make a "look at me" thread, so I wanted to come up with a topic. I've been watching tv some lately and I've come to realize, Smallville's theme song is really cool. There are other tv theme songs that get stuck in my heads as well. Such as Friends theme, etc.


What are your favorite tv show theme songs?

Welcome back Obes, and congrats on the cowboy-hat! :D
The engagement also sounds nice. :indif:

I don't watch tv, but I know I really despise the Family Guy theme song, even though I've come to love the show. :p

the "Angel" theme by Darling Violetta. it's like "smashing pumpkins meets batman..cello-rock" or that was what joss whedon was looking for when they were looking for a theme for the song. starts out mellow with the lone cello, then starts rockin when Angel comes on the scene to help the helpless.

the sanctuary extended remix on the Angel soundtrack is pretty good too.

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.

Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Ok, so I googled the lyrics but I actually did watch that show once. :p

I wondered where you went, obes, you're one of my favorite mods here.

As for theme songs, I can't really think of any really good ones off the top of my head, but I guess swat kats is mentionable.

Little known fact: John Williams composed the theme song to Gilligan's Island.
And what a coincidence, he also did the Superman theme.

Red Dwarf.

"It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere.
I'm all alone, more or less.
Let me fly, far away from here.
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun.

I want to lie shipwrecked and comotose,
Drinking fresh mango juice,
Goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes.
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun."

Is that above series 5? Because if so, no :(

"Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Work you cares away,
Dancing's for another day.
Let the Fraggles play,
We're Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red.

Dance your cares away,

Down at Fraggle Rock.
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Yep, she's as awnry as she looks, and then some.

She's originally from Georgia, but doesn't have MUCH of an accent...it only slips now, when she gets really mad.

Other than that, still holding the fort in the swamp here.

As always, we leave the light on for ya!

Born from an egg on a mountain top, the punkiest Monkey that ever popped,
He knew every magic trick under the sun, to tease the gods and everyone can have some fun.
Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic ooh

What a cocky, saucy Monkey this one is. All the Gods were angry and they punished him.
Until he was saved by a kindly priest, and that was the start of their pilgrimage quest.
Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic, Monkey magic ooh!


it may not seem like much from reading it, but its a *very* catchy tune :) Those interested can check it out HERE !!!! (http://www.ewtoo.org/~matt/monkey/sounds.htm)

*Other faves

s'up Obi :wavey:

that hat is cow-tippingly great! plus it will keep the sun out of your eyes when you're digging holes. or have you found other ways of relieving your frustration? speaking of which...

congrats on getting engaged to Virginia! :cheers:

:D


i like the a-team theme song... although that’s technically a ‘theme tune’ seeing as there's no singing... but i don't care, i like it.

That cello always gives me goose bumps. Weird thing is i thought the Angel theme sucked when i first heard it. I think your mind associates theme music with the experiences you have while watching... so over time it affects you more.

Monkey Magic does RULE THEM ALL! though.

FLCL? That had one awsome theme song, "Ride on Shooting Star"

Vikinor
03-26-2005, 03:04 PM
If that's the show with the weirdo lady running over people on scooters and pulling guitars out of the head then yes. That is FLCL right? I never even got the point of the show. It was very strange, but had awesome music.
