Theme Wars: The Twilight Zone Vs. Lost in Space

Posted by on Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 2:30 PM

In my review of Spectre's adventurous 2012 hiphop album The True & Living, I mistakenly wrote that he had sampled the theme song from The Twilight Zone (composed by Gregor F. Narholz); in actuality, he'd sampled the Lost In Space theme (composed by John Williams). I watched both shows as a lad, but somehow over the ensuing 40+ years, I mixed up the two. I swear it won't happen again.

Both pieces are among the best TV tunes in history; the shows weren't bad, either, though I preferred The Twilight Zone because it chilled my blood with more regularity than did Lost in Space. However, the latter's robot was the best character on either program.
