Post by stelios_z28 » Fri Apr 27, 2012 8:50 pm

in the dvd set of knight rider we saw an interview with Glen Larson says that the knight rider theme was inspired by two things!a german piece of synthesaizer song...and a classical mozart type song!well it took me some time and research but i think i found them both..so here they are.....

Thats very cool. The comments say the Germain song came out not before 1983 I wonder if there is any truth to that matter?

Well, the Harry Thumann song is debatable as to which came out first, but the Mozart piece is from the 19th century. No debate there. Who knew at every commercial break that we were really listening to Classical the whole time!

no, in a video that stu appeared for knightrideronline said, he didn't knew about Cortège de Bacchus, it was a pure coincidence.
