Really an encapsulation of what Sorkin wrote, wasn't it?
In my humble view the definitive version of the "Peter Gunn" theme was by Duane Eddy:
Holy moly! Is that the LP with the DMX Krew remix of Cats on Mars? That's a great track, too. I've only ever found bootlegs floating around the internet.
Yep, I remember buying it for a pound in the bargain bin around the time of it’s release. When I stopped dj’ing I sold it, for a good price but not the crazy money it goes for now. I never realised they were all remixes from a tv show soundtrack.
"Compass of the sky"?
"Conquerors of the sky." Innit?
Love the News Radio opening theme
You are correct!
Peter Gunn by Roy Buchanan
from the album Dancing On The Edge
Stewart Copeland had an entire album called "The Equalizer and Other Cliffhangers" on the No Speak sublabel of IRS. I'm sure there was long version of the Equalizer theme on it, but here's an even longer version (probably an 'extended' version, from some 12") that I just stumbled on...
The first thing that I thought of.
I have a few CD compilations of TV Themes. I love the full length version of the Burke's Law theme.
Don't know if this was posted but Joan Jett does a great MTM - Love is all around. Its on YouTube from the Letterman show, great stuff.
I wasn’t aware of this. Thanks for sharing it, I loved it!
Space: 1999... two seasons, two versions of the theme song.
As a kid, I was more into the action-oriented Season 2, so that’s the theme version I’m linking to.
But when I bought the complete series 1 and 2 on DVD some years back, I grew to appreciate those Season 1 stories, and I think the theme song was pretty good for that season, too.
Between the two, you could clearly see and hear confirmation of the change they were forced to make in terms of jacking up the action in Season 2.
Anyone remember this?
Vividly. That's the version of the song I most remember too.
I'm sharing this for the theme song, which I certainly liked as a kid. But I picked the episode with the song that anyone who remembers the show will remember.
This would be the second most remembered song from the show.
There was only one actual version of this (I think), but it was edited to pieces later, at least in syndication.
Guess that was after I was a kid. I can picture my old man seeing that and walking over to turn it off, just to show me who was REALLY important.
This version competed with Neal Hefti's original on the radio in 1966. I think this one rocks.
I also love this version
