The crew of Apollo 15 took this, Icarus, to the moon. On a cassette tape. They named a crater after it, and another one after Ghost Beads, another piece from the same album.

Seeing how someone already noticed 'The Right Stuff´, my favourite bit of loud starts at about one minute:

I've always been partial to "The Rocketeer" by James Horner.

They wouldn't be allowed to use these opening credits in 2012's Britain. I blame this show for my inexplicable fondness for Detroit Techno

Always a good sign when the lead actor sings the theme tune! I blame this show for my taste in women, been trying to find a heather thomas look-a-like ever since

There's no music here, but there is an interesting use of background noise. The sudden *silence* helps to make this perhaps the best scene in American television history.

[sigh]

If we're getting this far afield, allow me to present the two greatest TV openings ever.

First, while not having any great artistic merit or complexity (or Heather Thomas), it is certainly incredibly well known and from the opening bar you are completely in the mood for the show:



And then, the unquestionably greatest opening and TV theme ever (can't stand the source, but it's the best quality I could get sonically):

For me, it would be a toss-up between the opening theme from Star Trek - Deep Space Nine:


 
and the theme from a relatively obscure British TV series "Neat and Tidy - Adventures Beyond Belief". Jill Whitlow and "Guitar Man" - that's entertainment  ;D :

Well, if you have 'The Professionals',
then you have to have 'The Sweeney'....





And for incidental music, there's the use of
Albinoni's 'Adagio in G' here, I was only a kid when
this was shown, and it scared me sh****ss.....





OBB, interesting, Chris Franke, who wrote the music
for your B5 clip, was part of the band 'Tangerine Dream',
who scored the William Friedkin film, 'Sorcerer'...







Ah, 'The Equalizer', or as we used to call it back in the day,
'The Overcoat'........


cheers,

In 2009, the Discovery Channel had one of the best commercials ever:

And who can forget the opening to Blade Runner? Come on, it was magnificent!
