Classic TV & Quiz Themes CD
« on: January 25, 2005, 12:03:28 PM »
As I was copying themes from the first GSN CD, I noticed that the theme to "I've Got a Secret, entitled Plink, Plank, Plunk, is missing from the lineup.  I first got the CD back when it first came out and had to get it again when it accidently fell in the trash and threw it out not knowing what all was in the container.  On the first CD it's track no. 4 right after "rollercoaster, theme to WML?.  On this latest version it goes from WML? to Password (in which the Password theme used to be no.5 on the first CD). Is there any reason for this???

Most likely the licensing agreement for that track expired, and could not be renegotiated in time for the re-pressing.

Curious, considering that the master to the track is owned by Universal Music Group, Varese Sarabande's distributor.  If Universal couldn't extend a deal with a label they distribute...

Well, I think it's fair to say that those VERSIONS are new.  Bad, but new.

What are they, MIDI's?
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Don't give them that much credit - those are absolutely hideous!

Wow. Just when I thought something couldn't lick more balls than that site Fenner posted.

Yeah, I think those are MIDI. Or at least some jagoff with a moderately-priced keyboard.  That version of the Pyramid is comporable to the ringtone on my phone.

Which would be okay if it were a ringtone. It's not.

Perhaps I was lucky not to hit the listen button.

Seems to me we could actually make money by creating CDs with a bunch of good stuff, provided someone got the license to copy and sell.

Thanks God.

Because, as that page mentions, that CD is not available for purchase in Best Buy stores.

At least now I know how the Match Game 7x theme would sound if it was performed by an organist with a blood-alcohol level around 0.40.

FF sounds like they took it right off the SNES game.

I hope this doesn't give FremantleMedia any ideas for a theme for the next revival of 'Match Game'.

I'm not at all surprised they have backlogged orders.  I mean, the themes to all my favorite gameshows, just as they appear on TV, on one compact disc for only six dollars.  I had no idea the 25K Pyramid theme sounded like that.  There must be something wrong with my TV's speakers.  This whole time I've been humming the wrong song!  If anyone's thinking of getting me an early birthday present...
