You know, Sean, I didn’t really intend my last post to be a tribute to Obama, per say. I just thought it tied in well. I did, however, come up with a video that not only continued the American theme, but also could go with either candidate, depending on how sarcastic I was feeling:

Greatest American Hero Theme

You know, I always liked this theme song. It’s probably the association with freedom and the air again. It just makes me feel good.

Believe it or not, I’m walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me.

Of course, you then posted again and changed themes. I, however, had already picked a video for my next post, and decided to stay with it.

I then thought I’d be nice to continue on the theme of tv show openings, which is how I ended up with this video. In German, none the less.

Die Fraggles!

Ah, Fraggle Rock. The opening was already cool, and I just think the German accentuates it. Plus, the phrase “Die Fraggles” amuses me.

So I was hunting around for a third theme. And found a clip that was not a theme tune, but I really wanted to play…

The Avengers intro clip

Let’s just say, I enjoyed this enough that I didn’t care that it wasn’t a tv theme. Ignore the “Celebs in Leather” ads. After all, once you’ve seen Diana Riggs in leather, why would you want anyone else, anyways?


One Response to “TV”

  1. […] last, I thought it appropriate to play John Lennon’s Working Class Hero. We play a lot of songs about heros here, don’t we, Sean? Hadn’t noticed that. Surprised Joni Minstrel […]
