Favorite Incidental Music
« on: April 09, 2013, 11:43:09 pm »
I'm sure a lot of longtime Arthur viewers have noticed how often the show uses the same incidental music cues throughout the episodes, with many of the classic ones still being used today. What are some of your favorite ones?

One that always makes me laugh is the sting that always plays when someone is shocked or unsettled (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8M6rrbtHXQ#t=11m10s). It always plays in my head whenever I have any "OMG!" or "WHAT?!" moments.

Though it's not used much, I also like that twangy guitar cue that was sometimes used around Season 12 or so (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFVuuHVE1lU#t=0m42s).

It's going to be hard to name specific cues...since they don't have names and words like "electric guitar cue" or "banjo cue" are too generic.

And it's gonna take a while to search through all the videos and find what we're looking for.

I kinda miss the ones from the early seasons (like whatever was used in Arthur's Eyes). Notice how they haven't been using them recently? I guess it's 'cause they've been "retired".

There's actually some music scoring, cues, buttons, etc. that were posted on YouTube within the last year or so:


Of these available, I really like #3... #4 almost sounds more like a remix version than what we're accustomed to hearing on TV, doesn't it?

I stretch like a snake, and I shimmy and shake, and I bounce like a ball, and I say something cute when you give me a squeeze!
