Opening song.....opinions

47 posts in this topic

Looking for a dramatic opening song. Is there anything out there that strikes anyone's interest. We all have Epcots Reflections of Earth, Sandstorm, 2001 A Space Oddessy. 

Trying to keep up with the times. Preferably short clips.

Transformers - Arrival to Earth is pretty cool.  Give it a listen.

Thats pretty cool. Awful long though. Found two spots where I could cut it, around the 3:00 and or the 4:00 minute mark. Thanks for your input.

Here's one I use.  Lots of people like it.  I use it for checking all the lights across both yards.  (Sorry - I can't find any more recent video.)

That would be fun for part of a show itself. Looking for something real dramatic for an opening though. This song just opens a can of worms for me as one of my daughters wants me to sequence "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer. I usually get away from Christmas music between Christmas and New Year, didn't do it this year though. For some reason I couldn't get into sequencing this last year.

Not mine, but my favorite show intro. One days my kids and I will do something similar.

First time I've seen this, pretty funny. I have been using the other Minions intro for the last two years. Time to change it up

It's not Minions, it's his voice tweaked with Audacity to sound like elves! Super creative.

I've used a 30 second edit of the FOX sports theme since I've began doing synchronized shows.  It's familiar to most adult viewers (especially NFL fans), and lends itself to some very powerful sequencing turning on blocks of lights at each "beat".

Do you have a video clip of your opening that you could share?

2001 Space Odyssey / Nutrocker by Philharmonic also has its fair share of robust moments.

Thanks.

It seems like a long time ago.  When I look at it today I see things that make me cringe. :(

This is from a few years back, but you get the feel of the sequencing.

Here's my take on the NFL on Fox theme.  I was actually going to use it as the opening number until I discovered 2001/Nutrocker.  Apparently. 2009 is the only year I videoed this song.  Trying to figure out a new camera (which served for only one season) this was probably our worst quality video year.

Question, when you all talk about opening songs, if this the only time you are playing this seqeunce, or does it play with the show when it repeats?

In my case it is in the startup part of the show editor, only want it to play once at the beginning.  I also setup a shutdown sequence.
