Gideon’s Crossing Theme Song

Remember this one? As far as I can remember, the show was not half as bad as they treated it, too bad it only lasted a few months.

And, with this show, the theme is star. Why? Because in its 20-episode run, it was still able to win the coveted Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music. It was not nominated for anything else, just this one, and it still won.

The opening song is the work of composer James Newton Howard. Mr. Howard is known for winning the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for the 2009 Batman film The Dark Knight—albeit shared with Mr. Hans Zimmer.

So I guess that’s it. The show was not even released in DVD so there goes anyone’s hopes for a soundtrack or for a commercial release of the theme. However, there’s always ‘ze YouTubes. Relive the title theme and sequence of Gideon’s Crossing below.
