One Question Interviews: Dear Boy

Ben Grey (Dear Boy)

SPB: What is your favorite TV theme song?

Grey: I'm afraid you've touched on a bit of a nerve because I love TV theme songs. I will give you three.

* Twin Peaks & Angelo Badalamenti -  Too much has been written about this piece of music, so I'm just going to go ahead and spare you. But I will say that it's just insane how something can set a tone for a show that has such inarticulate tone. It's perfect and I'm sure this is the first you're hearing of that.

* Friends & The Rembrandts - This song is so ubiquitous that you don't really even realize how rad it is. Sounds like The Housemartins meets The Soup Dragons meets The Hoodoo Gurus and it totally works on its own. It's so classic that you can't even listen to it.

* Perfect Strangers & Jesse Frederick / Bennett Salvay - I don't want anybody to think I had these names at the ready. Looked it up. Glad I did. This track is so under appreciated. It's legitimately triumphant and crazy well composed. I love it. Unapologetically had it on my Winamp in jr. high. The only tune that is soaring enough to hype you up for Balki.
