Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987 TV Series) Theme Song
Theme Song Week
A good TV theme song/intro helps define a show and remains as enjoyable on the 50th episode as it was on the fifth. The original 1987 TMNT show was sadly before my time but I had plenty of opportunities to get into music from the show through arcade and NES games. I revisited the TMNT games games recently and found that they are as awesome as I remember, and as intense as this theme song suggests. This theme song is so stellar that I’ve just gone ahead and made it my alarm clock and I’m excited to report that my quality of life has increased dramatically!
Viu also alerted me to the version of the TMNT theme she’d heard in Spanish and I’ll include a link to that below.

I have a recording of myself at age four singing the refrain of this song on repeat for almost five minutes. I really don’t see how I was fit to live with back then. (This song is also currently my wake-up alarm on my phone, and I sometimes try to think of ways to use it elsewhere in life.)
