Something a bit different for this holiday Monday. The 80’s was a time of looking to the future (‘cos everything was a bit shit then) and this was reflected in glossy, futuristic T.V.. Of course, futuristic T.V. shows had to have futuristic theme songs, and that meant Synthesizers!
So here’s a small collection of some of the best to fuel your nostalgia.
Beginning with possibly my favourite TV theme of the 80’s, Tangerine Dream’s theme from ‘Streethawk’ (also on their own ‘Le Parc‘ album), taking in the classic theme’s from ‘Airwolf’ and ‘Knight Rider’ and ending up with the proto-Daft Punk-esq theme from the cartoon ‘Ulysses 31’.
Most of these are really crappy quality, as if some kid in the 80’s held a Tandy tape recorder to the T.V. speaker to tape the music….just like I used to do!
I would have included ‘Doctor Who’ themes, but I may save them for another post…
Also, If I got any of the artists wrong, I apologize, whatever…
