MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE FAN

The beat of the Buffyverse goes on




One of the elements that mades Buffy The Vampire Slayer stand out from other television programing was its music. Over its seven year inception, the show has featured many live bands and their original songs, some of whom have gone on to become quite popular due to their exposure on the show. There are numerous web sites devoted to these various groups, so except for their mention, I am not providing any further details.

There was other music used on Buffy. The normal everyday soundtrack held cinematic quality themes behind the action and characters, and was of exceptional quality. Many people are responsible for bringing these sounds to the air, though in the earlier episodes, one of the more notable contributors was Christopher Beck. This man rwas ultimately esponsible for this magical world of notes and themes, and when he eventually bowed out of his postion, the baton was taken up by other capable and inspired followers.







Note***The songs below are listed under the title of the episode in which they were aired. If the band/group performing them is know, their name follows the song title in Italics. A pair of asterix (**) denotes the music is included on one of the current Buffy CD albums that is available for sale.

Before Buffy ever hit the airwaves, there was a pilot presentation to sell the idea to the executive powers in charge of those kind of things. This original episode was never seen by the general public (though there are bootleg copies of it out there somewhere). A good bit of it managed to make it into the first two episodes, "Welcome To The Hellmouth" and "The Harvest". The cast was basically the same, with the one noteable exception of the girl who played Willow. The following songs were featured in that orphan episode.




Episode 000 The Unaired Pilot

See A Little Light - - - Bob Mould
Pon De Attack - - - Da Bush Babees

SEASON ONE

Every Episode from the beginning of Season One through to the end of Season Seven started and ended with the "Buffy The Vampire Slayer Theme" song written and played by the band Nerf Herder. Those throbbing guitar strings got our hearts ready and going for 144 hours of entertainment, drama, comedy and thrills.
