Syfy's HELIX -- a B-H-D theme song?

Syfy premiered the thriller Helix, yesterday. You'll see below that Burt's music is mentioned in relation to it. What is the song? Is it really a theme song? When is it played? Any info at all? (Syfy's website will provide access to the the first episode to people in the US and maybe some other coun...

Re: An idea and a request

There are _two_ musicals (not counting Some Lovers), right?

Besides one based on Painted from Memory, there's one based on Austin Powers. As to the former, Costello said he is sticking to the lyrics, as it refers to new material. Haven't read much about the latter.

Re: Nice Write-Up of New Bacharach Revue

Have you guys been following this? Reviews have been rather favorable. I'm sooo happy for Burt. He seems to be delighted. Apparently some earlier attempts butchered his songs. Burt and his work obviously deserve the best possible treatment that the most talented and hardworking people can possibly o...

I don't know if you've seen this video of Tom Jones talking about the What's New Pussycat story.

Re: Some Lovers song

I'm much closer to nymusicalguy than to Blair on Bacharach-Sater. For whatever my opinion is worth, I think Burt's recent output might be on a par with his best earlier works. I say this with trepidation, but I think it is that good.

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Don't think this radio interview to promote Burt's book was mentioned here.

For those who are particularly interested in the Bacharach-Costello partnership, Burt talks about it starting at about 6-6:30.
