    Which theme music does everyone prefer? I think the current one seems too high pitched with no real bass or depths. I think the previous one with the electric horns was good if not a little weak, the one for the 2001 election with the thundering drums and tribal chaunts was still the best. It had the cheesy 80’s electric guitar sting as well. BRING IT BACK!

    New Here to Sky News fourms. I have to agree, that 2001 theme tune was the best, and is way better than the current theme. It should be brought back!!

    I think that Sky News should of kept its previous theme tune and used it against the current opening graphics. The previosu theme tune was miles better than the current one, I still don’t know to this day why they changed it. . But I suppose everything has to move on sooner or later.

    i agree with jonnyboy. incidentally has anyone noticed the current theme tune and the very slight (?) resemblance to crimewatch??!

    I’m not expert on this topic, and don’t have any real interest for that matter. But I’m sure the change was forced upon SN because the old tune was under copyright. I could be incorrect about that, but there you go.

    Yeah – that’s true.

    Dobs Vye (the composer of the last music) was threatening legal action I think I recall.

    Personally, I like the new music – it sounds right for the channel and it stands out from the other news channels.

    I crapped myself when I saw that, I really did – but could Microsoft ever be bothered to do anything about that?

    I didn’t do anything! Um – I don’t really care anymore…

    I now have a clean verison of the 2001 theme, and it’s not windows protected and I have 4 different version.

    Click here for the media section and scroll to the bottom of the page.

    Check out the Alternative Version – It’s pretty good.
