The nineteen eighties show Knight Rider used to be a couple of guy who drove a talking automobile and solved crimes. i believe. I (form of) understand that watching a tender(ish) David Hasselhoff argue with the auto, a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am named KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), voiced through William Daniels. KITT had a Cylon-like pink mild on its (his?) front grill which made the automobile appear vaguely menacing. Knight Rider was once amazing ‘80s tv and as such, had an equally spectacular topic track (sidebar: i would like us to come back to TELEVISION theme songs that specify all the plot of the show both within the lyrics or by way of a voiceover like this one did. I pass over you, eighties).
London-primarily based cellist Samara Ginsberg, who amongst other issues, produces “virtuoso preparations of cool animated film/film/tv/online game issues” took the Knight Rider topic and made it her personal in an completely improbable video that i will be able to’t prevent watching. That’s her, doing all eight parts. Seriously, I’m in awe.
For comparison, here’s the original Knight Rider opening topic (ah that 80s synth-pop), for those of you who neglected it the primary time around:
Ginsberg’s eight-cello/one-lady productions additionally include an arrangement of the Imperial March (aka Darth Vader’s subject tune) from Celebrity Wars (the masks!)…
…and the subject of any other nineteen eighties show close to and dear to Gen Xers: Inspector Device:
Ah the eighties: unhealthy hair but nice TELEVISION subject songs. I’m now trying to bring to mind different 80s shows Ginsberg could overwhelm at the cello: Tips of Lifestyles? Magnum, PI? Miami Vice?
Truthfully, so many good options to select from.
