More Forgotten Themes
This week: the readers’ choice. Ten more great themes to forgotten, undervalued and not-so-great shows, chosen by you…
Last week we presented our list of great themes from forgotten SF and fantasy shows, to redress the balance of the fact that whenever there’s a “Best SF and Fantasy Theme Tunes” poll, the top places always seem to go to the same shows that win “Best SF and Fantasy TV Shows Polls” (with a few exceptions, such as The Tomorrow People, which truly must rate as the biggest difference between quality of theme tune and quality of programme ever). The problem with dealing with forgotten shows and forgotten theme tunes is… well… we forgot some. You lot suggested some great alternatives, and we’ve spent the week sifting through your emails, forum posts, Facebook posts, Tweets and comments to come up with this alternative readers’ Top 10 (but we still think Earth Final Conflict blows everything else out of the water).
Randall And Hopkirk (Deceased)
Sung by Nina Persson of Swedish pop combo The Cardigans, the music for the Viv and Bob remake of the ’60 series about a cop and his ghostly partner was written by David Arnold, who’s been in charge of the Bond music since The World Is Not Enough. And doesn’t it sound like it? Even the piano riff at the very end sounds like it’s going to burst into the 007 theme. But it is effortlessly cool and well deserves another hearing.
