Music Monday: TV Themes, Pt. 2
Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately! If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.
Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately. It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.

Finally, have fun sharing and discovering new to you music!
The Wild Wild West (1965-1969) - This is easily one of my favorite classic tv shows! It's part western, steampunk, sci-fi, action-y spy adventure series and you can't go wrong with James T. West and Artemus Gordon! The opening title sequence really gets the tone of the show across. Season 2 was actually the first season to be in color and the title sequence is slightly different than they were for the first season. If you've only ever seen the movie with Will Smith and Kevin Kline, you're really missing out! By the way, the tv show end credits were always good (the visuals were different for each episode). It's one of the few closing credits I'll sit through just to hear the music!
Lost in Space (1965-1968) - I never really starting watching show until it started coming on after Svengoolie (which I like tweeting along with). The opening theme song of this sci-fi show - particularly the revamped season three theme and opening title sequence - is easily the best part of the show. And, you can't forget Dr. Zachary Smith! His antics definitely make the show interesting - although, I'll never understand why they just didn't push him out of the airlock or something because he does cause a huge amount of trouble. But, at least he seems to get a kick out of what he does! The Robot's pretty entertaining, too. By the way, did I mention the theme was composed by John Williams?
