whats your favrote music score on kr tos

Post by james olden » Fri Dec 17, 2010 12:33 am

through the kr tos series the music changed alot (im not talkin about the music that was on the billboard charts) but the music that was made by don peake and stu phillips the music score.

what was your favrote music on the tos series.

mine was the music on the begining of scent of roses when michael was tryning to take down curt rollins and his goons. and also towards the end of the episode when michael and ki2t was driving to the wherehouse.

another one was on knight of the juggernaut. the introduction music, and the part when devon first walked in that building asking to see dr quinlan then it showed that security camera with phillip nordstrom sayin send him up b4 capturing devon. that same music was played again on knight sting.

I like a lot of the music in Season 2:

- When Michael and Kitt accompany Kelly Travis up Widow's Mountain in 'Speed Demons'
- The music played over the whole climax to 'A Good Knight's Work'
- The music played over the scene where Michael and Kitt track the coolant spots in 'Goliath Returns'

That's just off the top of my head - there are many many more! And I'll always be grateful to Messrs Phillips and Peake for their massive contribution to Knight Rider!!

I have always liked Junk Yard Dog, Soul Survivor, Let It Be Me, Mouth Of The Snake, The Pilot, Goliath, Killer KITT and KITT vs KARR. Amongst many others. Listen to Junk Yard Dog regualry, love that score.

Keep meaning to get volume 2 and 3 of Don Peakes cds.

Hands down, my favorite (and the best in my opinion) is the end score from The Scent of Roses. It sums up the entire series perfectly and would have served as a good closure had that been aired as the series finale. You get a full version of the FLAG-Theme and watch Michael and KITT ride off to more adventures as the Knight Rider theme closes us out.

i agree with all above all the scores are brilliant on a side note the instramental section of madonna,s "isla bonita"has a couple of notes that always remind me of the opening score of JUGGERNAUT everytime i hear the song i thing of that episode see if anyone can see what im talking about :good:
michael;i've got a problem.

My favourite score is from Soul Survivor too, the "hypnotic" music. Also the score from Knightmares is my favourite and generally the 2nd season music style, very electronic & futuristic sounding tracks, I like that style very much :)
Especially the bass guitar & the electronic filter effect which makes the synth sound kind of "slide", you can hear it for example in "A Good Knight's Work" when Michael is snooping in the toy factory.
I also like the 1st season music by Stu Phillips very much, would be nice if he could release more KR music, for example from "Just My Bill" episode.
It sounds to me there was more variety in the musical scores in the first 2 seasons, afterwards it often used those famous notes from KR theme and rarely something else. Still sounded great of course and I do like the 3rd & 4th season music too, Junk Yard Dog, KITTvsKARR, Fright Knight, just to name a few :)

I have in my KR collection the music CD's from Stu Phillips and Don Peake Vol. 1 & 2 and "sort of" have the old HiTechRecords CD as well. Have recorded the music scenes from some episodes as well in mp3.

Yeah I have the Stu Phillips cd also and the Don Peake one, Volume 1. Havent got round to getting Volumes 2 and 3 but I plan to.

Knightmares what a great score and The Scent Of Roses, such an important score to the series. Knight Of The Drones, again what a cracking good score.

Love all Dons work. Have to treat myself to Volumes 2 and 3!.

Is there any plans for Soul Survivor to make it onto a future volume?.
