  1. The fealing that somewhere, you've heard that theme before.
    A TV show theme that seems to hsare far more in common with another piece of music than should.

    This passed half year I have no encountered three, so I thought it was enough to start a thread where others could contribute.


    Example 1:
    "Hercules: The Legendary Journey's"

    By: Joseph LoDuca
    (SAMPLE)

    Sound a little familiar? Can't place it? Here you go:
    "Robin Hood"

    The cue is "Overture" from Michael Kamen's score. Both are grat pieces of music, but I feel personally LoDuca brought it to new heights and created a special heroic feel.



    Example 2:
    "FX: The Series

    By: Christophe Beck
    (SAMPLE)

    Does that season one theme sound a little familiar (season two was a remixed new version of that)? Can't place it? Here you go:
    "Cantaloupe Island"

    An instrumental jazz piece by Herbie Hancock (occassional film composer himself). His piece is a slower and a little looser, but you can hear it, especially certain live performances.




    Example 3:
    "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"

    By: William Olvis
    (SAMPLE)

    Far more blatant. Can't place it? Here you go:
    Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story"

    The cue is "The Dragon's Heartbeat", and Randy Edelman is the composer. So far as I know, they have never worked together.

  2. Example 4:
    "Knight Rider"

    By: Stu Phillips and Glenn A. Larson
    (SAMPLE)

  3. Example 5
    "Justice League"

    By: Lolita Ritmanis

    An FSM user posted the coincidence from another score which I had never heard before:

    The score certainly sounds worth checking out just based on that theme. Soundtrackcollector.com shows it has been releasedon CD twice.

    Compared to a foreign TV series called "Linda":

  5. A striking resemblance indeed.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.
