I’ve never regularly watched this show before. But today they seem to be showing a marathon on the SciFi Channel. I’ve been watching it while I work. It’s a nice sci-fi adventure show.
I noticed something while I was watching. The theme to the show is really, really cool! It’s grown on me in a matter of hours. I felt there was something familiar about it.
I did some research and I found out that this theme was composed and performed by Alex Lifeson, the brilliant guitarist of the legendary Canadian progressive rock band, Rush. I love Rush!
But am I to understand that they dropped the theme song after the first season? Why did they do that? That theme song was so cool!
Here’s some info about it I found on Wikipedia:
[quote]Lifeson created the theme for the first season of the science-fiction TV series Andromeda, using 20,000 layers of guitar tracks, which he overdubbed in his home studio, to create a unique sound.[/quote]
