... and here´s another interview where Alf Clausen says that he´s easily got material for a double album and would love to see it released.

By the way, I am not Alf Clausen. ;-)

My favorite TV show ever, I'd buy an album (hopefully 2 CDs at least) in a heartbeat.

I'm a big fan of Moonlighting and i would definitely buy the music from inside the series!
I hope some labels see this and think about a release for Moonlighting!

"Moonlightling" was produced by ABC Circle Films. That makes Disney the owner, and the prospects for release slim.

Ugh Disney, that just says it all! If anyone wants me to send it, I put together a pretty flawless mp3 of the chase music from the pilot episode. Buck Rogers and the 25th century also has a missing piece of dance music from the pilot episode. I have an mp3 of that too.

What about that special series they're doing with Intrada?

Big fan of this classic show.

Unfortunately, there only a song CD was released.

Anybody else here who would like to see a score CD published?


I remember some very good scoring for this show. Didn't they even perform Herrmann's Giant Crab music from Mysterious Island for one episode? I seem to remember something about this. Would love to hear it if it's true, even if it's just a sound alike.

Bill


Glenn Gordon Caron must be a fan of Herrmann... there were some distinct homages from time to time in MOONLIGHTING (in particular, one to the SISTERS score for one episode). I believe some Herrmann homaging has carried over to MEDIUM on occasion.


One of the best episodes of the first season was called "North by North DiPesto"...a total nod to Hitchcock and Herrmann.

I completely agree that the show should get a soundtrack release. The sad parts in particular were very touching.

There was a lovely-elegant melancholy theme that was often used for Maddie (Shepherd’s character) in a more pensive mood, or as the “cool-down” after a confrontational climax. Probably you couldn’t even call it a theme; it was little more than a lick on the piano, but very effective for the show. I still have it in my ears (together with the inevitable “bing!” of the elevator).

Great show, great writing, great actors, great music. Alf Clausen had a large variety to do, from Herrmannesque mystery over stylish sensibilities to burlesque slapstick stuff. He worked effectively at the very core of the show, just as he, unbelievably, still continues to do in the murderous weekly schedule for “The Simpsons” after umpteen seasons. I hope they’re paying him very well, because for me, he’s a true unsung hero of the industry.

And yes, his work definitely deserves more exposition on disk (would buy a “Moonlighting” CD in a jiffy).


That single piece you mention is probably my most desired unreleased score, now that the Twin Peaks Archive has completed my TP collection. I wonder if there's a particular episode in which it plays at its most full, without dialogue or sound effects.

How funny, this got me inspired to pop in a disc of Moonlighting and I randomly happened upon exactly what you want.

The first 40 seconds of the episode "It's A Wonderful Job" from season 3 contain the "pensive Maddie" theme from beginning to end, with no other sounds.


Skip to 39 seconds

You are a legend! (Nice segue into Sleigh Ride toosmile )

On a side note, how does a guy named Roger Director become a producer?!?
