The Chicago Code Theme Song

2011

Yes, Jennifer Beals, yes.

Alright, another new show with a proper opening theme. Things are looking good.

The theme song for The Chicago Code—that crime series starring Flashdance goddess Jennifer Beals—is a piece by Canadian composer Robert Duncan. So far we have credited Mr. Duncan for the themes of The Unit, Terriers, and Castle, for which he received an Emmy nomination.

Now, about that where-did-I-hear-that-before voice. Still don’t know? That distinct voice is Billy Corgan’s—Smashing Pumpkins; Billy is an Illinois native.

I know for a fact that the Billy Corgan opening theme is already an updated version, but for now we don’t have any references to the original one.

Below is the Chicago-montage opening sequence and the theme.

And the lyrics.

The Chicago Code theme song lyrics

Who’s gonna hear you cry,
when there’s more of them than there are of you?
Who’s gonna hear you cry,
when the high winds come and it takes your breath?
Who’s gonna hear your voice,
when fallen men wanna cut you down,
and the sun is gone in the dead of night in this town?
Who’s gonna hear you cry?

People have asked for it, but no, there is still no full version of this song, nor is it properly titled yet. As always, I will be updating this post when anything new comes to light.
