So. There is a strong rumor going around about Veronica Mars getting new "artsy" credits for the new season. This has made us wonder, of course, whether they would also change the theme song.

Now, there are two things that came out of Comic-Con that inform this post:

1. Rob said that the network wants them to be a good companion piece to Gilmore Girls.
2. Done the Impossible featured quite a bit of filk, which made me realize that this fandom is woefully short on filk.

And I am just the man to change that.

I give you the new theme song for Veronica Mars.

If you're out in the car, feeling deadly, and so noir,
All you have to do is breathe extra and I'll be there with my camera.
Where you sneak, I will follow anywhere that you lead me to.
If you peek, you peek into the wrong room, I will follow where you sneak.

Current Mood: happyhappy
Current Music: Raconteurs - Steady, As She Goes

Cute!

I'd be sad to not have "We Used to be Friends" blare at me at the start of every episode, but I could deal with this new theme song.

Totally forgot to mention that I friended you after ComiCon.

Hilarious, and so fitting. I saw a bunch of ads yesterday at the Grove that say "Feeling Girlie?" with a picture of Alexis Bledel. These join the "Girls Night" campaign currently underway. I'm not so sure the CW has even seen an episode of VM, because the current campaign just doesn't mesh. There are a lot of connections to make with the two shows, but the advertisers just aren't seeing them. Fandom has come up with better campaigns for the new Tuesday - ad execs should really pay attention. I think "Stars and Mars" works much better than "Girls Night", because the latter excludes a major demographic. I'm very interested to see how this plays out in the fall.

And I'm SO READY to have these shows back on the air.

Yeah, it's going to be interesting to see how the two match up because they...don't. They do in some ways but not in the big, major ones. How will the ads look side-by-side?

Tonight on Gilmore Girls, Lorelai can't decide how much coffee to get!

"Is a cup enough for you?"
"I don't know, I'm feeling kind of muggy."
"Like the weather?"
"Or maybe a carafe. A carafe of caff! Oh my God, I should sell that and make millions."

And then on
Veronica Mars, Veronica must break into the most highly guarded building on campus: the library.

"I knew I should have checked out that book before 9!"

But what she finds there gives a whole new meaning to "circulation."

"There's so much blood, Wallace! SO MUCH BLOOD!"

Welcome to Girls Night on The CW!

That would probably make me very sad as well as others.

I like the current VM song (though I like the "Intergalactic Friends" mashup better), but after the last two nights I think I would be glad to see it go -- my husband and I have been watching about seven episodes a day, catching up on season, and BOTH of us have had a hard time sleeping because the stupid theme song is running through our heads.

We're freaks. I accept this.

Puss N' Boots asks you to put down the crack pipe before you influence people in the wrong way...While the Gilmore Girls soundtrack works for them, I really hope they don't try significantly change the musical styling of the show because one of the things I love about VM is the music...You're making me nervous! If all of a sudden VM's theme song is by Britney Spears or something, I may have to throw up a little in my mouth...*shudders*...I don't want VM's music to be something we hear 50 million times on the radio...if I actually listened to radio...I'd miss the old credits as well, but I'd be open to them re-vamping them, especially now that there are new series regulars...

I don't think the musical stylings of the show will change, and I doubt that the new song, if there is one, would sound in any way like the GG theme song. I am nervous about the overall tone of the show, however. Rob said that the network had been antsy about some dark plotlines, but, thankfully, the studio had the show's back.

Hee.

I like the current song, although it was mostly appropriate for the first season. A new credit sequence will be welcome though. The old one is fairly outdated and never really fit the show that well.

If only we knew someone who could find out if there's a new theme song...

Veronica Mars Filk

I give you:

Logan... the kid they call Logan...
He was born an oh-niner
With a rich, famous pa.
Who beat his back bloody.
Ignored by his ma.
Our love for him now
ain't based on his sheckles.
The jackass of Neptune
the kid they call Echolls.

Oh no! That theme gets in my head all the damn time.

...because these days I watch GG more than anything else all the damn time. 3 3/4 seasons to go before I'm caught up.

The only reason I don't want We Used to Be Friends as the theme anymore is because it's a REALLY annoying ringtone, lol. Especially when I'm fishing for the phone. But I turned it back to Teardrop today, so.

I still feel like drawing up a storyboard for new credits. Maybe I will tonight.

You win at life, my friend. Will this new theme song be sung by you or Carole King?

I have to admit, I'm kinda happy to see "We Used to Be Friends" go. It only really made sense (IMO) in the first season.

All you have to do is breathe extra and I'll be there with my camera.

In my head, I say "extra hard." Also, um, phonepost? I can add it to my playlist of the musical stylings of the Cow, right along with the f.b.s.e. song.

That both doesn't scan and doesn't rhyme with "camera." It was really hard to find something that rhymed with "camera." That's probably the weakest line in the whole thing.

I have been wanting to do a singing PhonePost for a while, but it doesn't seem worth it for, like, ten seconds. But...maybe.
