    Forgetting threatrical motion pictures, what is your most memorable music soundtrack from a TV show or mini series...........

    I'll start the poll:

    For me a no-brainer.............Victory At Sea......penned by the musical genius Richard Rogers. Pristine Shaded Dog pressings will explode out of your properly set up McSystems............ just wait till Sony/BMG mines their LSP back catalog for SACD:yes::banana::thmbsp:

    The soundtrack to Ken Burns' Civil War series that was on PBS. Absolutely haunting, sometimes mournful music.

    Hmmm,

    TV Show or Miniseries? Well, there are several that are very memorable:

    Babylon 5
    Lost in Space
    Star Trek (several of the series)
    Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
    Kolchak, The Night Stalker (original series)
    Victory At Sea (RCA Shaded Dogs and MFSL versions)
    Ken Burns' The Civil War

    Of this group, Victory at Sea is by far the best when it comes to the quality of the recording available.

    At completely opposite ends of the spectrum, a tossup between:

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Once More with Feeling (composed by series creator Joss Whedon, performed by the cast)

    and

    Angels in America (HBO miniseries), by Thomas Newman

    You're fired for not reading the Poll disclaimer! (LOL)

    Apocalypse Now was not a TV Show or TV Mini-series.

    Children of Dune by Brian Tyler would also make my list... you would never suspect it was from a SciFi Channel miniseries. In fact, several of the themes pop up in theatrical trailers from time to time.

    For me, it has gotta be "Woke Up This Morning"...opening theme from the Sopranos. A very menacing rocker by Alabama 3.

    Theme from "Tucker's Witch'. No, you never saw it. Another was "The Feather & Father Gang". One from my misspent youth was a Sat morning show, "Tomfoolery".

    Theme from early 50's tv show Captain Video,(was Wagnerian, possibly, but maybe not), early, not later, 20-mule team borax western theater program theme, and early, not later, theme from dragnet series. There also was a pbs series about British imperial India that had a trumpet march theme that was catchy.
