Rizzoli & Isles Theme Song

2010

Angie Harmon is quite beautiful, isn’t she?

The theme song to this show is quite Irish-y, which you will later find out why, but the choice is quite confusing. I mean, it does not sound cop enough to begin with. Anyway, it’s still a catchy tune nonetheless.

The theme song for Rizzoli & Isles is called “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” which is by the Irish American Celtic band Dropkick Murphys. The complete song actually has lyrics, which they got from the late American folk singer Woody Guthrie.

“I’m Shipping Up to Boston” appeared in the Dropkick Murphys’ 2005 album, The Warrior’s Code, and also previously from a compilation called Give ‘Em the Boot Vol. 4.

Also, according to Wikipedia, the version used in the opening is the acoustic version. As to where that can be found, I don’t know yet.

Below is the complete song with lyrics.

I believe this song is also used in Discovery Channel’s Lobster Wars.
