    Default Best Sci-fi/Fantasy show Theme Music Tournament

    Wow, that titles a mouthfull.

    Okay, following on from the last tournement of Sci-fi and Fantasy shows, lets take a look at their theme music. So, heres what we do pick a show and nominate it, the shows with 2 or more votes go into the tourny.

    Now, you have until Sunday to vote for the music, but it would also be a MASSIVE help if you could provide links to the theme music. If you cant then the show cannot be included, if we cannot hear it, we cannot vote for it. If you cant find the theme tune, then provide the whole song as a sample, so for instance if you cant get "Angel"'s theme tune then you can give us a link to the origional song by Darling Violletta.

    So. 5 Days. Up to 8 votes each. Off you go.

    My Votes

    1. Battlestar Gallactica: The New Series UK
    2. Firefly
    3. Angel
    4. Buffy
    5. Tru Calling
    6. Doctor Who (9th/10th era)
    7. Stargate: Atlantis
    8. Star Trek: Enterprise


    If you vote for Doctor Who, please state the era. (ie. Doctor Who: The First Doctor's Theme)

    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    OK - for now this is just a link - i'll do nominations later on in this post (in edits)

    The Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy

    OK - so most of you will know it from the film or the books, or the radio series, but there was also a slightly dodgy BBC TV series for it, for which they used the same music as the radio series. Above is a slightly dodgy link to an extract from it.


    OK - that site seems to have got everything you could want!


    My Nominations

    1. The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy
    2. The X-Files
    3. Buffy
    4. Voyager
    5. Startrek TNG
    6. Deep Space 9
    7. Smallville

    I've tried not to vote for stuff that already is 'in' with two votes.

    I'll hold off on my last one for now.

    I've just had a thought .. can a show that has a different opening and closing theme (such as Enterprise, or SG-1, or possibly even Lost) have both included?

    I'm copying the link from Wraith Scientist (thanks! )

    Here's the link to LISTEN or SEARCH for it here (since I don't know how to attach individually)

    My nominations (for the time being, I'll add here until it's 8 noms)
    1. Roswell
    2. Charmed
    3. Tru Calling
    4. Farscape
    5. Highlander (link at LoneStar1836 post, thanks )
    6. Red Dwarf (sounds cute )

    And since 2 votes are enough to buy entry, I don't need to nominate Angel/Buffy/Firefly anymore , please guys... read the others' nominations before you nominate, so we can include as many votes as possible (and make PTAH! more headachy )

    Heh, cool idea for a tourney Ptah.

    Okay, I have links for three Star Trek shows. No surprise there of course.

    The Next Generation Theme - That's my favourite, right there. Ahh... the memories. *sigh*
    There's also an alternate version (which I've never heard before).

    Deep Space Nine Theme - It still gives me the goosebumps.

    Voyager Theme - It's just so mellow and laid back.

    The site policy doesn't allow direct links to the playlist file, so I've provided a link to the page where the .m3u link is embedded. All of the opening theme tracks are the first link on their respective pages. Just click on the link below where it says "Theme/Opening Credits" and open with Windows Media Player.

    Some of my other favourites have already been posted. I just cannot forget the opening theme for the third season of Babylon 5, it's just so dark. It's a pity I can't find it anywhere.

    And lastly, the Stargate themes. They might not be my top shows, but their opening themes are just about the best.

    *edit* It's okay, I've found the theme and a few others. I need to upload them to a file host.

    Well, I listened to a bunch of the themes for shows that I hadn't seen, that hadn't been nominated twice, and realized that there's a reason they haven't been nominated twice yet - they suck.

    That said, I'll nominate:
    Star Trek: TNG
    Star Trek: Voyager
    Smallville

    TV Re: Best Sci-fi/Fantasy show Theme Music Tournement

    My nominations so far.....

    1) Space: Above And Beyond
    2) Quantum Leap
    3) Roswell

    4) Highlander This one has to be included so somebody else better nominate it.

    5) BSG: TNS (the US version...Trek_Girl linked to it above)

    6) Amazing Stories *I can't be the only one who thinks this is a memorable theme. Hey, it's by the master of musical scores, John Williams. Loved watching this show as a kid.


    I have a question. Are each of the 5 seasons of B5 going to be included individually? Or are they just going to be lumped together? Just wondering. Ya know, season 5 may have been the subpar season but I think it was my favorite intro and music.



    So far all of these except Highlander can be found on this site which has a lot of tv themes.

    Stargate SG-1


    Star Trek is at http://www.fantasynews.co.uk/themetunes.html

    EDIT: OH! OH! Another vote! FUTURAMA!!!

    Cool. I've still got five more votes.

    4. Quantum Leap. - The theme tune is in the drop-down list

    I was going to nominate Babylon 5 last night, but my choice is the theme from season 3 (the themes changed from season to season). I still need to find a file host to upload the track to. If someone else doesn't second this, I'll go with the original.
