PLAYLIST
Selection Source Performer(s) Comments
Theme from The X Files (TV show) Music from Science Fiction Movies and TV (1998) The Festival Studio Orchestra Music composed by M. Snow & A. Newman. Ahhh, Mulder. Ahhh, Scully. AAAAUGH! Aliens!
Theme from Dr. Who X Files, The Ultimate Science Fiction Collection (1997) Unknown; liner notes missing from library copy, alas A cult classic of British television, replete with cheesy effects and implausible plots, a lead character who metamorphoses into five different actors (or is it six?), and a distinct sense of humor.
Theme from Star Trek: The Original Series -Lounge Mix The Best of Star Trek, Vol. 2 Orchestra cond. by Alexander Courage Composed by Alexander Courage Liner notes say this was heard in a wedding sequence. I think it’s a riot !
The Imperial March from The Empire Strikes Back John Williams: Greatest Hits 1969 - 1999 London Symphony Orchestra, cond. by John Williams 1980 George Lucas blockbuster. Second of three films (which we later found out were actually numbers 4, 5 & 6 in the sequence).
Anything Goes Anything Goes (1962 Off-Broadway Cast Recording) Eileen Rodgers and chorus Cole Porter, composer & lyricist. Kirkwood Theatre Guild will offer their production of this classic in May of 2001. Amy interviewed Linda Menard and Russ Bettlach from the Kirkwood Theatre Guild about their upcoming season.
Friendship Anything Goes (1962 Off-Broadway Cast Recording) Eileen Rodgers and Mickey Weems
You're the Top Anything Goes (1962 Off-Broadway Cast Recording) Eileen Rodgers, Hal Linden, and Mickey Weems
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan--end credits. Star Tracks II (1987) Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra James Horner, composer. Second in the series of Star Trek movies, this 1982 entry, directed by Nicholas Meyer, resurrects an Übermensch from the original series (played by Ricardo Montalban) to wreak vengeance on the original cast. Arguably the best of the Star Trek movies.
