Alright, so The Pacific is a sister show (whatever that means) to the mega-successful Band of Brothers from 2001. It was an epic show, so it had an epic theme song as well.
The song is entitled “Honor”. As per the original soundtrack, it is officially credited as “Honor (Main Title Theme From The Pacific)” and lasts 2 minutes and 56 seconds—same length as the opening sequence, so no full/album version.
Music for the miniseries was done by the team of Blake Neely, Geoff Zanelli and Hans Zimmer. Now, that is an impressive team. Trust me. But, if you don’t know why, here are some of their credentials:
Blake Neely – Nominated for an Emmy for the theme from Everwood.
Geoff Zanelli – Won an Emmy for scoring Into the West.
Hans Zimmer – You don’t know Hans Zimmer? He probably only won like a bazillion awards, including the Oscar for The Lion King. He also worked for The Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.
Now, as hinted earlier, the franchise has also released an official soundtrack—March 2010. It contains 20 plus songs, all original scores for the series. It also includes the also-nice end title theme entitled “With The Old Breed” (video below).
Alright, on to the vids.
First, the original opening sequence/titles.
That sequence was also nominated in 2010 for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Design.
Next, a better-audio-quality version of the opening theme (“Honor”).
Then the end title theme (“With The Old Breed”).
