Theme Song of the Week: Space:1999 (1975 - 1977)


  1. I always felt that the season one theme song and format should have been re-used on season two.


  2. I remember being surprised back in September of 1976 when the new, and very catchy, Year-2 title theme kicked in. I immediately liked it. The year before I winced a little with the electric guitar of the first series theme music -- it was already "old".

    Now, I much prefer Derek Wadsworth's contributions to the series, even though I'm a long-time Barry Gray fan. I won't go on about it, besides I did my own posting here:

    In late 1976, or early 1977, I bought the Space: 1999 RCA LP and, although I enjoyed it as a fan of the program, I was surprised by how brief the record album was. And the next year, I, along with a friend of mine, was disappointed that there was no Year-2 record album. (Of course, we did not know at the time that Space: 1999 had all but died in the marketplace.)
