Along with the refreshed Nine network came these new warnings. I’m still looking for something R rated to record, will upload soon I hope. But as it turns out we don’t air R rated programs on Australian TV, that probably explains my difficulty in finding an R rated warning (thanks Brendan).

Just some of the new promos for SVU, the footage not in 16:9 must have been supplied by the studio as promotional material, but I really like it, and the music on the first video is nice and dramatic. The second video is for a specific episode, the simple black and white graphics at the end are really good though I think.

Al Harding, the composer and singer of “Light My Way”, the song that accompanies the latest ABC promos has left a comment on this blog, its been left in the original post about the song, and I thought I’d share it with you here. He writes;

Hey Guys,

I have just read your collective kind remarks re my song
‘Light my way”. I can’t believe how much interest it has created. I wish all my clients were as happy, as I spend most of my time composing Film and TV music that goes pretty much un-noticed, or at least un-appreciated !
You have rekindled my enthusiasm to write more songs, so
thanks to you all, particulary for being so passioniate about music !

Al Harding’s website can be found here, and as for those of us who’d like a copy of the song, he says;

“I’m not sure how I will go with providing copies for those interested, as it was commissioned especially for the ABC, but I’m working on it…”

I’ve been watching The Simpsons for more then 3/4 of my life, longer then i’ve had the internet, and its probably been a bigger influence on me then my parents combined, what more can I say.

The sleeper hit of 2006 (the ‘Garden State‘ of idents if you will) on this site has got to have been the ABC 2006 promos featuring the specially commissioned song ‘Light my way’ by Al Harding. More people have found this website through Google searching “this is where your world starts spinning”, then any other phrase, it even beat “tv idents”.

I think its a brillant song, I’m wondering if there is a full version or if we’re just hearing as much of the song that was written, either way I’d love to hear an original, unedited rendition, if for no other reason then so I can get over it. My sponteneous melodic break outs of “hey yeah, light my way” still gets very odd looks from people.

I can’t imagine any other network going to trouble of actually commissioning a song to be written, if it was on the commercials we’d probably of just got something from the Pussycat Dolls.

Thanks ABC, and thanks Al Harding, you’ve made it a great start to the year.
