Defenders of the Earth Theme Song

The plot of Defenders of the Earth, produced in 1986, is set in the year 2015. So really, this is our faith in four years time.

For this theme, our information is limited to the composers and the lyrics. Tips say that music is credited in the closing of the show, so, let’s check if there’s any truth to this. See below.

Well, well, what do you know. At 14 seconds in the video above, main title music is credited to Rob Walsh and Tony Pastor. Below that, something interesting: “Main Title Lyrics by: Stan Lee”.

Stan Lee!? Cool! I didn’t know he had it in him. Anyway, as for the other guys, Rob Walsh is Robert J. Walsh, a composer with a very colorful resume that includes music for The Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Jem among others. On the other hand, Tony Pastor is still virtually unknown as of the moment.

Below is the theme song and intro of Defenders of the Earth.

And now the lyrics.

Defenders of the Earth theme song lyrics

Defenders of the Earth, Defenders!
Out of the sky his rockets ignite!
Jets into battle, flies faster than light!
Flash Gordon!
Lord of the jungle, the hero who stalks!
The beasts call him brother, the ghost who walks!
Phantom!
Defenders of the Earth, Defenders!
Master of magic, spells and illusion,
Enemies crumble in fear and confusion!
Mandrake!
Defenders of the Earth, Defenders!
His strength is a legend, his skills conquer all,
Armed with his power, we never will fall!
Lothar!
Defenders of the Earth, Defenders!
With our new young hero’s, proving their worth,
Four become eight, defending the Earth!
Defenders of the Earth, Defenders!

How I wish someone could tell us who that very-enthusiastic voice belongs to.
