Theme Tune Ideas

February 25, 2011 at 11:09 am (Motion Graphics)

Have a traditional Irish song to start with, then use a rock cover version for the Otherworld

Whiskey In The Jar – Dubliners

Then switch to Metallica

Sixpence None the Richer – Kiss Me

Switch to New Found Glory

The Cranberries – Zombie

Breed 77

Have something up like John Ryan’s Polka (instrumental used in Titanic) – swtich to rock version of it

Alternative Ideas

Jimmy Eat World – Always Be: fast pased with lyrics that could relate to the show. Has an American feel to it

All Stars – Things That Go Bump In The Night: More pop & unbeat than dark and haunting. Could fit well for the younger end of the target market. Maybe too bobity for the older veiwers

The Letter Black – Fire With Fire: A little darker, but still quite light. Fast & nice change between the male & female singer. I’ll look into this band a little more to see if any of there songs has an Irish slant

The Irish rural town could use the music around 3:00 then when moving into images from the Otherworld this could be conveyed when the rest of the guitars/drums kick back in around 4:00. The music still had an Irish sound but has a dark gothic/rock element to it as well. Is there enough difference in the music to keep viewers interest

I also found a site that allows you to make your own version of songs, allowing you to take out the vocals of songs if the music fits the sequence
