After watching and reviewing Skullduggery recently, I had to wonder what some people thought were the worst movie theme songs (and/or music) of all time.  Skullduggery is easily in my top 3.  Perhaps followed closely by the Silver Shamrock song from Halloween 3 and "Nightmare" from Nightmare On Elm Street 4.  Any thoughts?

The theme from Yor, The Hunter From The Future. I don't know whether to hate it or love it for its cheese factor.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

The theme to the pilot episode/movie of "Buck Rogers" is pretty amazingly bad.  It is this soft sort of wondering thing, set to instrumentals and you can tell they were trying to inspire wonder in the audience.

However, my hands down winner has to be "Blood Money" from "Space Rage."  Two writers were credited for the song, which is mostly guitar and such.  There are a total of two words, repeated over and over.  Those words would be "blood" and "money."  Imagine that going on for five minutes.

That song in "For Yu'r Height Only"  (the Weng Weng movie) always annoyed me, lame sappy drama music, like a Filipino version of Celine Dion. Maybe it really gets to me cause I'm Filipino and my mother would always sing crappy karaoke that sounded exactly like that song in the movie...oh man makes me cringe just thinking about it.

I also hated the music in "Don't Go in the Woods Alone", besides it being laughably generic and ridiculously monotone, it was abused in the movie a lot, adding to its monotnous quality.

Forgot how bad Skullduggery is until listening to it again. 

A truly bad movie theme needs to somehow use the movie title in the lyrics and have absolutley no connection to the movie other than that...

The theme to Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, the theatrical movie was pretty embarrassing.  It was the same music they used for the TV series, except they added these incredibly cheesy lyrics sung by this incredibly cheesy vocalist.   Then butt-kicking Colonel Wilma Deering was trying to do some sort of sexy Bond Girl type thing at the same time.  Egads.

Oh god I remember that theme.. Its amazing in its cheese. I wish they'd release Buck Rogers in a boxset. That and the original Battlestar Galactica.

Just about anything that relies too heavily, or even exclusively on midis. For me, even the works of Georgio Moroder tend to get real old real quick. The War of the Robots stands out in particular as sounding like a four year old doing their own rendition of scales.

It is available on DVD as a box set.  I will be posting a review for the pilot episode, the movie (with the crazy opening credits scene), just prior to Christmas.  It seems like a fitting Christmas and New Years movie.  Not only do you have Buck, raised from his frozen sleep, saving the human race, but you also have the time-traveling aspect.  I like to post a time travel movie for the New Year.

The one Frank Stallone sings at the end of "Rambo - First Blood Part II". Just bought the extended OST and after all the tracks with Jerry Goldsmith in his prime you get THAT. What a downer.

Both are available in box sets.  Buck actually has surprisingly good video quality, though I was pretty disappointed in the video quality of the original Battlestar.  Most of it looks good, but the special effects shots actually look worse than when they show it on the Sci-Fi Channel.  Noticeably worse.  Nice extras with Battlestar though - a ton of behind the scenes stuff and a really high-quality book with all the episode descriptions and artwork.

Oh yeah that's a terrible one.  Isn't it called "Peace in my life" or something like that?
