Since I've got a *huge* collection of soap theme mp3s (quite a few of which are in long and pristine form with no announcers), I thought I'd post them as downloads to share with people who love soap themes as much as I do.

EDITED: I'm inserting a "Master List" of themes, songs, and links into this leadoff post to make it easier for thread newcomers to keep track of what's been posted thusfar.

Up first: my all-time favorite soap theme.

Posted Image

Another World (1975-1981)
length: 1:41
quality: pristine original version (not an orchestrated re-recording)
announcer v/o: NONE!

DOWNLOAD LINK


BONUS:

Here is an orchestrated version of that theme taken from a late 1970s album of soap theme songs. The length of this version is 3:21. For those of you who remember such things, this version also served as the theme song to my websoap 'For Now & Forever'.

Alright I have made a new folder in my documents ready for all the themes you have. I'm excited.

The Another World theme is so soothing, I should listen to it before bed to calm me. :D

Ooh, I can't wait for more themes! They're so nice and relaxing to listen to on rainy nights like tonight, LoL.

Thanks for posting!

I echo the sentiments about this AW theme. One of *the* best and it has a very romantic air about it. I love it, almost as much as I love the slightly more soapy (IMO, at least) theme that came before it.

The orchestrated version from the album is just stunning. I wonder if that would be the same album that has an orchestrated version of ATWT's then theme song, but in a soft pop/soft jazz arrangement with an awesome midsection that wasn't included in the original TV recording.

Dionne Warwick did a close for B&B? Wow, I never knew that and it seems it was relatively a short while ago too.

Even though this isn't a soap theme, it's a lot of soapy fun and a cool flashback...

Once again, Matt, I love you!

LOL's 1980 theme and LOV's 1983 theme are probably the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard in my life.
