Title: Is there an "off vocal" version of the Love Theme?
Post by: Zeether on December 22, 2008, 02:49:27 PM
I'm talking about a version of the theme song with the vocals removed and just the instrumentals. Just wondering because I hear instrumental parts of the theme song used in the Poopie! tapes and in the commercial signs for the later CC seasons.

Not that I know of, but if you've got a MIDI sequencer and about thirty seconds, you can make your own.

I feel stupid because I thought the "love theme" was played during the credits.

Don't feel stupid.  "The Love Theme" is the instrumental music played over the end credits.  It has never had a vocal track.

Okay, I meant the INTRO theme.

The Love Theme is played over the opening credits.  Unless you can think of a good reason why somebody's credited for Lyrics on an instrumental.

Technically, it's also played over the end credits, since it's just the same tune slowed down.

In television and cinema, the  "Love Theme" version is the instrumental one.  (As in, "The Love Theme from ________").  This is what they were riffing on, so the "Love Theme" must be the outro, at least logically.

Admittedly, I never noticed before, and sure enough, it gives "lyrics" credits to Joel and Josh.

So... you're wrong... and yet, somehow, also right.   Neat trick!
