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: happy
Current Music: Raconteurs - Steady, As She Goes
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.
I read that as well...can't remember if it was on your LJ or someone else's recount of the VM panel. I'm glad the studio has their back with the darker themed elements especially since we won't get as intricately layered plots due to the new format...realistically, I suppose the most important worry is making sure we hold onto the 18-34 group at least from GG or potentially increasing the viewers from GG to VM..if that happened, the statue of KB might actually be feasible..or you know..a future Emmy! :)
