The Dangerous Ones: Lost TV Theme Songs

By The Nick and Marty

The Nick and Marty recently released their album The Dangerous Ones: Lost TV Theme Songs on Bandcamp. 

Nick and Marty Grant are brothers from Charlottetown, PEI, where Nick currently lives while Marty is based in Quebec.

“For this album we wrote and recorded the songs in our basements and shared the music files over the cloud,” says Nick. “It’s just my brother and I, and we’re each having a go at all the different instruments and sounds. It was a fun project and a great exercise in writing songs that were different from what we might usually write.

“We thought it would be fun to make up TV pilots that were never aired and write their theme songs. The result is this album. Each song has a little blurb that describes the show.”

Not every TV pilot produced for network television makes it to the air. Some lose their creative team due to delays, some fall apart through internal conflict, tragedy or happenstance, and some are simply bad. But what of the unheard music created for these unseen TV shows? Every TV pilot, ready for broadcast, cancelled or not, would have a signature opening music theme. Here, gathered together for the first time ever, are 20 lost theme songs to never-aired TV pilots from the 70s and 80s.
