(included in the Boston Sunday Globe):
Q: My friend and I have a bet over who wrote the theme music for NYPD Blue.
A:...Five-time Grammy Award-winner Mike Post, 49, has composed more than
3000 hours of theme and background music for such TV shows as 'Hill Street
Blues,' 'The A-Team,' 'The Rockford Files,' 'Law & Order,' 'Renegade' and
'L.A. Law.' For 'NYPD Blue,' says Post, he wanted to capture the way NYC
assaults the auditory senses. To accomplish that, the composer digitized
the sounds of a grinding cheese grater and 1000 grunting Japanese men
stomping on a wooden floor."
As they say, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. I can't wait until
Tuesday night so I can listen for the assault of the grinding cheese grater
followed by 1000 grunting Japanese men (presumably Sumo wrestlers in their
underwear) stomping up and down.
