    Story from TVShowsOnDVD.com

    Well, we've all known about the music for a week or more now, 1/25 is when things will get interesting. We discussed the change in the other thread, but I thought it made sense that the announcement have a thread of its own.

    Regardless of the music issue, I can't wait to own it! I only hope that the difference in music doesn't deter Sony from releasing seasons 4 through 11. Mind you, I'd be lying if I wasn't a bit skeptical.

    Anyway, I'll definitely be picking this up on Jan. 25th.

    I wonder what the deal with the episode(s) available previously is, e.g. the Lost Episode. Does this mean they'll replace the music on this one, too, even though it was already released with the music intact?

    Yes, they'll have to. The license was for that DVD, not for this DVD.

    I was afraid that would be the case, but was kinda hoping it'd be a Dawson's Creek kinda deal. In R2 they released a Best-of Dawson's Creek DVD a couple of years ago, containing 2 episodes from season 1 and 2 from season 2.
    And the season 2 episodes featured on that release are the only ones that had no replaced music whatsoever on the R1 set (including Springsteen). I always figured there had to be a connection between those releases as it was just too much of a coincidence.

    Well, in the end it doesn't matter. Another episode without the title theme won't change anything, and I'll buy it regardless. I won't feel good about it though. [​IMG]

    It's too bad that it still seems as if we will not be getting any substantial extras here. Can't we get a few commentaries going on this thing? Or at least, some more substantial interviews besides the hidden easter egg reunion clips. Wasn't it around this time where the show started to generate some real controversy, as evidenced by the "Lost Episode?"

    I noticed on the image of the menu that they have a link to 'Easter Eggs." Isn't an easter egg something that you have to find on your own, which is not obvious? This is like the Bugs Bunny cartoon with the flashing neon arrow that says "secret hideout." By putting a link to it, it is no longer an easter egg...

    This situation has inspired me to write a haiku:

    Married... With Children
    Released without its theme song
    Frank spins in his grave



    I'll still be buying this on release day, however. [​IMG]

    I'd actually be interested in hearing whether Frank liked his song being used for this show, has anyone heard about this?

    News item showing how Sony has handled the music change announcement on its packaging for this set.

    Good for them for just stating it plainly and factually.

    Is this the 'Love and Marrige' theme song we're taking about. I've never been very clear on this (forgive me for being such an idiot)

    Yeah, that's the theme. I never knew it was Frank Sinatra either, I figured it was just a soundalike type of singer.

    I'll just record the theme song from either of the first two sets (and the later seasons' shortened theme song from FX Network) onto a CD and play it with the current audio on Mute. (Like Cameron Crowe asks us to do with "Stairway to Heaven" on the Almost Famous: Director's Cut DVD) [​IMG]

    I'm really curious as to what the "new" theme song sounds like. Instrumental? Existing song? Newly-recorded song? Let's have a contest as to making a new theme song that fits the MWC style. Hey, let's turn that haiku by Rob into the lyrics to the new theme song! Ha ha.

    I wonder if Sony is currently negotiating for songs used in the episodes like "Bad to the Bone" (just popped into my head)?

    It's an original instrumental piece created for the DVDs, or at least that's what they told me.

    Here's to hoping it sounds at least remotely similar to "Love & Marriage". As I said in another post, I've seen this done before in video games. For example, let's use "WWE: Here Comes The Pain" for the PS2. One of the entrance themes was supposed to be the song entitled "Legs" (a ZZ Top cover) performed by Kid Rock. For whatever reason, THQ (the company behind the game) couldn't obtain the rights to the song, so instead it was replaced with an instrumental-only track, which "discretely" sounded similar to "Legs" but sounded different enough that it couldn't be touched by the rights holders.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and assume Sony is going to do the same thing, give us an instrumental track that will sound somewhat similar to "Love & Marriage" but will have enough differences to avoid any lawsuits, etc. I'd be quite content with a re-worked instrumental rendition as opposed to choosing a different song entirely. I know a lot of people mentioned opening the show to "Bad to the Bone", but I think that would spell disaster.

    Anyway, I'll be very interested to know what the instrumental music will sound like. Also, Gord or Dave, what do you think the chances are of obtaining an audio sample of the music from Sony. I think it'd be a good idea for people to get a taste of it beforehand. Just a thought.

    Wasn't ZZ Top's "Legs" used in Married ... With Children, too?

    Thought you guys would be interested to know how S3's music and the set is like:
    sitcomsonline.com/marriedwithchildrenseason3dvdreview.html

    Contains details on the replacement theme song used for the set. Sample audio clip of it is available.

    LOL, the review says it sounds like a mix between Love & Marriage and the Mr. Ed theme song. Couldn't agree more. [​IMG] To be honest, I think it fits rather well, so while I'm not happy about the change, Columbia has obviously taken a lot more care with it than Universal did with the QL replacements... plus they've informed us about it beforehand!

    Thanks for the link, Pavan_P.

    Pavan Badal, you've done it again! Good job on capturing the theme song, and I'm going to link to your review this morning and let our readers hear it. And I also agree that it sounds a bit like Mr. Ed.

    Pavan, this is definitely your day at TSoD: 6 of my 7 news stories are coming from our best correspondent. You rock, sir! Off to go start posting them...
