As of December 2008, the science fiction Terminator franchise had spawned three films (The Terminator , Terminator 2: Judgment Day , Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines ), with a fourth, Terminator Salvation, in the post-production stage and another two on the drawing board. And a network television series, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, was in its second season. This soundtrack album for the TV show mostly covers the first season, the exception being the leadoff track, a hard rock arrangement of the old folk-blues song by the Reverend Gary Davis, "Samson and Delilah" (aka "If I Had My Way"), sung by Shirley Manson of Garbage, who also has an acting part on the program. The song was heard at the start of the second season. Otherwise, composer Bear McCreary (of The Sci Fi Channel's version of Battlestar Galactica) wrote most of the music. Although he pledges fidelity to the synthesizer-dominated work of Brad Fiedel on the first two Terminator films and even uses a smidgen of the original theme in his "Opening Title," McCreary actually has a very different conception for the series, combining lots of wistful music played by a small string section with lots of pounding percussion. He notes that he and an assistant spent the summer of 2007 recording a library of percussion samples ("oil cans, chains, aluminum sheets..."), and the result gives him industrial noises that would seem like sound effects if they weren't so rhythmic. There are occasional respites from the strings-and-percussion cues, notably "Atomic Al's Merry Melody," which sounds like music for a cartoon and was used to follow the actions of a squirrel. But for the most part, the two basic sound groups prevail, evoking, as McCreary notes, both the human and robotic elements of the Terminator story line.
McCreary does an excellent job on the music for this series, Sarah Connor's theme is great. However iTunes has left off a key piece of music that you will find on the CD: "Samson and Delilah" performed by Shirley Manson and heard in the second season premiere. Very disappointing.
where the f!#% is samson and delilah?
the best song that just happens to be on the album is left off for what reason?
Great Score, but missing a song
I love this score about as much as I loved the show (RIP). However, by skipping out on the song "Samson and Delilah" by Shirley Manson, you have severely disappointed me. Indeed, I can't even by it as a single song outside of the album! Instead I have to go get the CD instead of buying on iTunes. In short: Great 'score', but not quite a full 'soundtrack'. Still get five stars for what it is, but makes me sad.
