Interesting show right here, people, right? I mean, we haven’t seen a plot this unique in years. Although, I’m still on the first season and I’ve a lot of catching up to do. So many awesome shows!
You know what’s even more unique about this show and its theme song? It’s the showcase of one extraordinary man’s extraordinary talents. I’m talking about the great J. J. Abrams. We all know that this is his show (to some extent, at least), and he marked his territory further by creating the show’s (opening) theme. That’s right, surprise, surprise.
A college drama while I was in college, what great timing.
In its four-season run, Felicity had two opening themes. The first two seasons’ theme, the one sung by a girl, was simply referred to as “Felicity Theme”. It was part of the first soundtrack—Felicity: Music From The Hit Television Series. The song is credited to Welsh singer-songwriter Judith Owen.
For seasons three and four, a new male-sung theme song was used. “New Version of You” also made it to an official soundtrack, the second and last—Felicity: Senior Year. The song is credited to the show’s multi-talented creator J. J. Abrams and filmmaker Andrew Jarecki. I’m pretty sure one of them performed/recorded the song.
The show’s producers totally tripped on season two’s Twilight Zone episode, where they created a whole new Twilight Zone-inspired theme music and video sequence. Luckily, this Felicity addict combined all the unique versions of the theme songs in one video. See below.
Felicity theme song lyrics
“New Version of You”
Can you become
Can you become
A new version of you
New shoe leather
A new way home
I don’t remember
Wow, how often do you see a show’s creator compose his own theme song? Yup, the already multi-talented J. J. Abrams is apparently a composer as well, and he composed the main theme song for his show Fringe. I doubt it has a title, so let’s just call it “Fringe Theme Song” or “Theme from Fringe.”
Other songs used in the series are handled by composers Michael Giacchino, Chad Seiter, and Chris Tilton.
