Bored to Death Theme Song

2009-present

The show’s creator’s name is also Jonathan Ames. You’d get that if you are a true fan.

So, if you know Jason Schwartzman, you would know that he is an all-around musician. He was the drummer of the band Phantom Planet, who performed the theme song for The O.C. entitled “California”. He has since left the band and now moonlights as Coconut Records—yes that’s what he wants to be called for his solo indie-pop project.

Now, obviously, the theme song for his new show Bored to Death was done by him, I mean by Coconut Records.

The franchise has already released an official soundtrack (September 2010). It of course contains the theme, where it lasts an official/extended 1:57 (but it contains a short dialogue from the series in the end).

Below is the theme as heard from the soundtrack.

And below the full-version lyrics.

Bored to Death theme song lyrics

All the shadows in the city
Used to love ya, what a pity
I miss the questions you used to ask me
All the shadows in the city
All the shadows in the city
Alright

Bored to death, plus expenses
The only trouble is my sentence
You said you’d never love another

Russian doll, one inside the other
Russian doll, one inside the other

Bored to death, cut, mad and lonely
Bored to death, cut, mad and lonely
Bored to death, cut, mad and lonely

Now finally, the famed opening sequence.

So really, the theme song edit in the intro is just the first and last 3 lines of the song.
