Themetime Themes, Anomalous Instrumentals & Unsung Covers, Pt. 1

Some things just go together -- trust me, this will work. Themes for movies and TV shows have to stand out -- they are introductions, they need to be ingratiating and set a tone to the proceedings. They establish leitmotifs, for heaven's sake! Anomalous instrumentals are the tunes that appear somewhere in otherwise vocally-oriented musical proceedings -- they stand out by their very nature, yet they exist only according to the whim of the artist. Usually, they fill a space that would otherwise be blank, or filled by an unfinished vocal number. These things work together, in some weird way; I hope to prove that here.

Introductory Themes

Song List:

01. Oingo Boingo - Hercules Family Theme (from Forbidden Zone)
02. Ben Charest - Belleville Rendez-Vous (French) (from The Triplets of Belleville)
03. The Real Tuesday Weld - Bathtime In Clerkenwell
